Thread: Getting these stretchers?

  1. #1

    Default Getting these stretchers?

    Hey, I bought an ear stretcher at gay pride today Its a 2.5, but Im regretting not getting another or a 3mm one now. I don't have any pictures of it, but it's one of the spiral ones, it's made of metal and its striped. I bought a silver and blue one, and they had green and blue.

    I doubt im gonna go too big on ear stretching to be fair, but these are really really pretty and I'd like to know where I can buy them besides Leicster pride in a few weeks, Ive had a look but can't find any. Anyone on here got any ideas where to find them?

    If you're thinking of stretching, please PLEASE read this.

    It's all really good advice. Especially the timeline section.

    What material is the jewellery? What size are your lobes now?

    Have you looking on here, bodyartforms.com, crazy-factory.com, jobananas, wildcat, maybe even ebay?

    Remember not to use them for stretching as you'll run the risk of blowouts and uneven stretches. Wearing them as jewellery for a night out in well established stretches should be fine though.

    Oh oh and tearing, and catbutt!!! Joy! or lovely thinning lobes and eventually loss of blood flow and necrosis! Nom!

    Seriously, DON't skip sizes. If your lobes are 1.2 now, see if you can get a 1.6 Titanium/Steel/Glass peace of jewellery in there, if you can, with no pain, then slide it in and leave it to heal (lobes heal from the outside in) then, after a month or two, move to 2mm and so on. If there is ANY resistance, pain, blood, discharge then you aren't ready for the stretch! Oh and lube is your friend.

    Do not stretch with Acrylic, organics, silicone as they're porous and will habour bacteria you don't want to come into contact with a fresh stretch as it will vastly increase your risk of infection. However, acrylic, organics, silicone are fine to be worn in well-healed stretched piercings.

    Im at a 1.2, thought i was pierced at a 1.6 :L I can put a tongue bar in at a later date however.
    Im going no bigger than 2.5 or 3mm The reason being the BCR with spikes on this site. My god, Ive been in love with them for too long! So I've decided to stretch a tiny tiny bit and get them.
    @summergale, you mean the stretcher? It's either titanium or stainless steel.

    I couldn't find anything like mine on those sites. However wildcat has some nice stuff, don't wanna ask how much they'd cost :P
    Im hoping someone on here has seen something similar to what I have atm.

    Why would you need to ask how much stuff on Wildcat costs when it's right there on the page in front of you? Confused, haha.

    Anyway, is the one you have something like this?
