    Default Can't get my tunnels in?

    About a week ago I upsized my ears to 0g. I bought tunnels to put in and can only get one side in? Both ears the same size but for some reason my right ear seems smaller and the tunnel will not go through. Any thoughts or suggestions?

    Same problem here. I'm at 1/2 inch but my left always seems a little tighter.

    I use Vitamin E oil and give them a little massage and they slide straight in.

    You can also use jojoba or emu oil but I don't like the smell.

    i use coconut oil on my ears. sometimes tunnels can be slightly off with sizes. just give them a wee massage and they become a little more pliable... but don't force them! if they won't go then just hold out and try again later. you could always try the taping method too to stretch your ears that extra little mm but again, don't do it if your ears are protesting and it's sore

    Exactly the same here. I stretched up to 5mm a few weeks ago. I ended up taking the left out for a day because it was a bit irritated. I now can't get a 5mm plug in, despite the right lobe being comfortable there. I have a frozen fire plug in my left ear and a green titanium eyelet in the right so I look a bit daft, but I kind of like it!
