    Cool, i will buy some nice smelling oil or moisturizer but i'm gonna replace my titanium tunnels with wooden plugs b/c it seems like they never smell. Seriously i clean my tunnels every day but i have REALLY oily skin so i don't know if that has an effect? anyway forget the pretty tunnels and get some wood on!

    Just remember to take them out in the shower, you're not meant to get wood wet (just reminding you if you already know, it's easy to forget if you don't wear wood often). Horn is also good for smell IMO, and silicone.

    I think that's the only disadvantage on wood tunnels, every time I forget to take them out in the shower my ears get a little bit itchy, not too much, just a little, so I have to take them out then and wait for them to dry before I put them back in.
    Other than that, they are extremely comfortable and their weight is almost zero, so there's not much of a chance of your ears stretching more than you want due to the extra weight of the tunnel/ plug, like I've heard it happens with heavier materials like Steel and such. And as said, they don't smell at all
    I'm sorry about my English, I try my best to make you understand what I mean.

    Current:
    4x Ear Lobes (2x @ 10mm); L. Eyebrow; L. Forward Helix; R. Nostril; L. Helix; R. Tragus; Navel; Medusa;

    Retired:
    Smiley; 2x Snake Bites; 3x Ear Lobes; 2nd Helix; Lower Navel; Septum; Venoms; Vertical Labret; Bridge;

    In years to come:
    Lower Navel (Re-pierced); Venoms (Re-pierced); "Just Breathe" tattoo on ribs;
