    Looks like GWS then I have flat ones in 1/2" and I found a single 5mm one. Need a pair of 5mm to match up.

    Oh noes, that means ordering from BAF
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    Both lobes 1/2", 5mm, 1.6mm
    Left rook & 5mm helix punch
    Right helix x2 & forward helix
    VCH, 5mm tongue

    Yay! Back up to 16mm, once my ears had calmed down, the plugs just kept falling through so tried the 16mm plugs again and they slid straight in.

    I wish my 2nds would take 5mm DF :( so sick of waking up to a grumpy ear that's spat its plug out during the night.

    Grumble.

    I hate taping, so much faff :P lol. I've ordered screw-in tunnels from CF, they should be here soon. Meantime I should stop wearing SF eyelets to bed with no o-rings >< but my 2nds are super thick cos they're at an angle, so wearing o-rings gets uncomfy too.
    Gah, stupid wonky fat ears.

    (Obviously if there's any resistance I'll leave it another month or two before trying again)
    Incase anyone's interested in stretching lobes that've been pierced at a larger gauge; the 5mm taper literally fell through my ear
    But, turns out my pair of 5mm glass plugs are slightly mismatched, one went in no problem the other was too big to follow the taper so I'm still at 4mm guess I'll just need to go buy more plugs!

    Considering stretching my nostrils to 1.2mm for more jewellery options. I have some pretty 1mm BCRs that I bought for my nostrils, though.
    Current: 9mm lobes, 5mm left tragus, 5mm left conch, tongue web, nasallang, left rook, left anti-tragus, right tragus, right daith, right snug, right forward helix, bridge, 5mm septum, three-point left helix spiral, double left eyebrow

    Planning: ​ Vertical labret re-pierced

    Ah that kinda sucks! Should invest in calipers, so handy! So your ears are a lot stretchier from being pierced at a higher gauge?

    My ears are back to being happy, I'm loving the look of 16mm, the single flare is quite big which makes them look even bigger, so it's quite a noticeable difference, plus I can really feel the change in my ear shape now.

    Ahh I know! Ended up buying 5mm GG plugs on the way home yesterday so I'm now happily at 5mm! Really hope they stay this stretchy!
