    That crusty torn lobe actually made me shudder. How can anyone let it get so bad?

    Acrylic is not going near my lobes/body again.
    Wore some plugs, lobes look pretty happy and healthy, but the freaking plugs smell like some sort of chemical fumes. Screw that.
    But I've worn acrylic before and this never happened! Probably a different type of plastic or something...anyway, NOPE.

    How is this acceptable to sell? Surely somebody else noticed this...

    A guy im arguing with on facebook who has gone from 12mm to 20mm using a taper and thinks what he is doing is good. He takes it out constantly for work but apparently he works in a kitchen, a clean environment so it'll be ok....yes that's how it works.

    A friend of mine stretched her ear to 20 mm in just a month. Result:



    She stretched the other one to 24 mm in roughly the same amount of time. Needless to say, it got infected and she doesn't wear anything in it now.

    She says she's learned her lesson.. Not sure if...

    Well to be fair, she suffers from schizophrenia and her pain threshold is way up there.
    She's had corrective surgery now and says she isn't planning on stretching for a while, but you never know..
