    Well had mine done about 15 years ago, got both pierced at same time at 1.6g with barbells, have since move to rings in both and streached to 3.2 at moment, looking to go to 5 in total so will be going to 3.4 or 3.6 soon.

    How long did you wait before stretching the first time? I know it's not like my PA, which stretched quite easily over just a few months. Was it painful, or did it stretch easily after a period of months or years? I was pierced at 12 gauge (2 mm) and would like to go larger eventually, but I'm not in a hurry. I'm assuming I shouldn't even try for at least 6 months or so.

    Another question -- my barbells are 1/2 inch long, and the beads fit perfectly against the sides of my nipples, none of the bar shows. If I switch to rings, what size would I get? I'm sure 1/2 inch would be too tight, but would you suggest 5/8 or 3/4 inch?

    PA, 0ga (8mm) 3/4 inch circular barbell
    Nipples, 10ga (2.6mm) 1/2 inch barbells

    Since I have them placed diagonally, I'm gonna wear barbells in them and I actually haven't been much of a fan for rings in nipples anyway.
    I has:
    lobes 18 mm
    snakebites
    5 microdermals
    diagonal nipple piercings
    triangle
    christina

    Lower back tattoo (heartagram)
    3/4 sleeve (Candyland)
    two tattoos on my hips (Gir and the pig and Pooh and Eeyore)
    one on both of my wrists
    one behind both of my ears (speakers, one on mute and one not)
