Thread: Stretching a Bridge piercing?!

  1. #1

    Default Stretching a Bridge piercing?!

    I don't have a bridge piercing right now but, when I do get I pan to stretch it up to 3mm or 4mm. Here are some questions I have:

    1. How long should i wait before stretching the piercing after it has healed?
    2. Could stretching it trigger rejection?
    3. Can stretching it make rejection less likely to happen in the future?
    4. What would be the waiting time between stretches?

    For the last two questions, no, stretching doesn't (as far as I know) make it any less likely to reject. In any case, if your piercing is going to reject, you will know within the healing period before you are ready to start stretching. For the last question, as far as I know you generally need to wait 2 (sometimes preferably 3) months between stretches - the longer you wait (as hard as it is lol) the better it is for the piercing.

    As for how long you should wait before stretching, generally 2-3 months after the healing period is complete.

    1. At least 6 months on top of it being fully healed
    2. Yes
    3. No
    4. Very hard to say when stretching a piercing like that. I'd advise at least 3 months

    Why not get it pierced at 3mm?

    I guess i could get it pierced at 3mm but, i don't know if i have the anatomy to get it at that size. I'll go to the piercer and ask though.
