    ^I do, but my lobe's literally at 8.5mm, and the tunnel just will not go in. Wouldn't be so bad if I had 8mm stuff, but I don't. It's 7mm, which means i'm applying more tape than I normally would do. It's not impossible, just tricky. At least this NF plug is steel though (so heavier, wooo!), and cos my ear isn't touching the metal no itchiness which I occasionally get with steel!
    Definitely feeling that! Playing devil's advocate . .if you go to 22mm, you may as well go on to 25, it's only a few mm!
    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.

    I think I have an SF 7mm, and possibly 8mm, I'll have to check for you!

    Exactly! Plus I don't need much jewellery, I'm a very simple girl when it comes to jewellery, something green, something black, and maybe something purple or red, sorted! Even a bit of wood lol. So I won't have your extensive collection, and with the jewellery exchange, even better prices! That page is so tempting!

    Well some of us like extensive choice haha. It is, there's a lot of gorgeous stuff on there.

    Im kind of tempted to stretch my philtrum up a bit but I've heard work are really cracking down on facial piercings so might not be the best idea...

    My lobes stretched themselves to 2mm I was at 1.6mm for about 2 months, and my 2mm plugs got delivered yesterday. I don't have my taper yet but I decided to try them just to see and they just slipped straight in. I love how happy my lobes feel when I've gone up a size, they seem to like stretching

    I was going to get some flesh tubes for my tragus, but I'd be worried about having an o-ring at the back of it so I think I'll buy single flared tunnels and have the bit with the o-ring at the front. I plan to stretch it to 2mm in April with a crescent expander (Using a straight taper is just way too difficult), then I might start taping after that. I have a 2.4mm flesh tube for my conch when it's ready to stretch, but would I be okay to tape with that or would it be better to use a single flared tunnel?
