    Question Stretching and jewelry...

    I'm contemplating stretching my lobes. What jewelry material is okay to wear in new stretches? I know to stay the hell away from acrylic and silicon. I'm currently at a 16g.
    Have: Lobes x2, left helix
    Want: left rook, , right conch, right forward helix or daith, navel?
    Tattoos: "Musik ist frei" on the side of my right foot, my dogs paw print on my right hip

    Glass, titanium, ptfe. Steel too, if you have no nickel sensitivities. As you're new to stretching, have a good read of the stretching guide on this forum.

    2 central labrets, philtrum, 2 temple microdermals, 14mm lobes, 4mm upper lobe (right)

    im ears are not too sensitive, so i use steel jewellery. i do use acrylic tapers, cuz theyre cheep, and theyre only in your ears for a few seconds. youre right to stay away from acrlic jewellery and silicone when youre streches are fresh, but once they are healed and settled, kaos ear skins ftw lol

    I would recommend sticking to metal when stretching and to put in fresh stretches. Titanium is very good as it's so lightweight and bio-compatible. Steel is also very good if you don't have any allergy to it, and usually cheaper than titanium. I always put steel eyelets in my stretches when they're fresh and then change to Kaos eyelets when they're healed fully. I stretched with PMMA acrylic tapers which were okay for me, but generally metal is a much safer option. Good luck with your stretching!
