    Hi xHex (and everybody else)!

    I'm new to stretching and have a question about the crescent taper.
    Just go my ears pierced (1.6mm) and my goal is to stretch them to 8 or 10mm.
    I know I need to wait a couple of months before starting to stretch, but thought I would start learning how to stretch correctly in the meantime, while my lobes heal.

    How does these crescent tapers work? I see that I can buy 2mm - 2.4mm - 3.2mm - 4mm and 5mm. Does that mean that I will have to buy all 5 of them (or 10 for both lobes) to get to a 5mm stretch? Or can I buy just the 5mm and push it in a bit and then leave it in for a month, before pushing it a bit further in and then repeating the process untill I reach 5?

    I realize that I'm a noOb to all of this, but I hope you or somebody else can give me a helpfull reply!

    Saz
    Piercings:


    2 sets of lobes at 1.2 and 1 set of 2.4mm on both ears

    right ear: + 1 Helix at 1.2mm, Conch

    I haven't done such things. Does it have any painful of stretching? "Just go my ears pierced (1.6mm) and my goal is to stretch them to 8 or 10mm" If do that , how long should you keep on stretching?

    Heya!

    Larger gauge piercings are stretched gradually to a larger size, one size at a time with a minimum of about 3-4 weeks in between each stretch upwards.

    The order of sizes which you will need to stretch (from 1mm - 10mm) each time are as follows:

    1mm (18 gauge)
    1.6mm (14 gauge)
    2mm (12 gauge)
    2.4mm (10 gauge)
    3.2mm (8 gauge)
    4mm (6 gauge)
    5mm (4 gauge)
    6mm (2 gauge)
    8mm (0 gauge)
    10mm (00 gauge)


    Larger gauges will be slightly easier to stretch as your skin will gradually lose elasticity (although this is nothing to worry about, but it does mean that larger gauges past 8mm will be harder to 'downsize' in the future).

    The best option to stretch your piercing is to do this with tools such as tapered insertion pins along with matching size jewellery:

    or our most popular, the stretching crescents which can also be worn as jewellery as you stretch:

    There are also lots of great forum threads and blog posts etc.. to help you along your way, have a browse and I'm sure many others will direct you to some of our great resources, they're scattered around here! :p
