    Izzy, someone on a Facebook group told me about a shop in PA that does punches (not illegally, I guess they're legal there)... if you want one we should make a road trip, haha.
    If it is in PA wanna combine it with our Elayne Angel road trip? I love road trips but I'm not getting a punch It just doesn't speak to me.

    My lobes are finally at 2.4mm! The taper didn't go through that easily and my lobes stung a bit afterwards, which I know isn't supposed to happen, but I'm going to keep an eye on them and go back down to 2mm if there are only problems. I'm also going to wait at least 12 weeks before trying to stretch again.

    Planning: ​ Vertical labret re-pierced

    I have a question about weights. From what I noticed, they only go up to a 2g (someone correct me if I'm wrong). If that's so, are you supposed to buy weights at a size a lot smaller than your actual size? I'm asking because I've seen a couple pairs I actually like enough to considering buying/wearing.
    Current
    Ears: Left forward and standard helix, left tragus, left daith. Right rook, right double inner conch. 1g and 14g lobes.
    Face: Right nostril, septum, vertical labret.
    Other: Tongue, standard and inverse navel, left and right nipple.

    People more wear weights for aesthetic reasons than to be actual weights.. So I guess it depends on what aesthetic you are going for

    I just like the way they look tbh, I don't care for the way it makes stretched ears sag. I wouldn't mind a bit of it, but I don't want them to be drooping down to my shoulders!

    You're at 0g aren't you? Same as me I've got a couple of pairs, both 2g actually! I'm not a fan of the saggy lobe look either so they work pretty good. Best bet is to get some and try I think

    You can get weights bigger than 2g, that's probably just BAF's stock. If you'd only be wearing them on odd days for short periods, you probably wouldn't notice much difference tbh.
    Current: Double nostrils, philtrum, nipple. Various cartilage, 9/16'' lobes.
    Retired: Nipple, navel x4, wrist, nape, MD, tongue web x2, lower lip piercings x4, nostril, helix, lobe piercings, septum, cheek piercings.
    4 tattoos.

    What is my life for and what am I going to do with it? I don't know and I'm afraid. I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want.
