    WANT TO STRETCH SOMETHING!!! waiting for my half mm jumps to be made then I can stretch my nostrils, but I was wondering how long you should leave a septum piercing before stretching. It was pierced on 9th May and It's fine when I swap the jewellery out, and it's not tender to touch, but I obiously don't want to stretch too early because I won't be able to see if there's a problem..
    * Anti-Tragus (1.6mm) * Left Lobe (8mm) * Right Lobe (8mm) * Right Nipple diagonal (2mm) *
    * Left Nipple Vertical (retired)* Double nostrils both (3mm) * Right Inner Conch (retired) *
    * Left Inner Conch Punched @ (5mm) * SEPTUM (2.4mm) *

    I'm not a professional but I would think you would be able to stretch your septum since it has been like 4 months. Just my .02$

    6 months before stretching a new piercing is the usual guidline. As septum stretching can be difficult, I'd give it the full 6 months.
    these make me cool rite guys??

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

    Default attached lobes

    Hi there, quick question for those with attached lobes really. I've always wanted to pierce my ear but have seen other people with attached lobes and it's never looked that good. I was wondering how it would work when stretched - i'm not talking about stretched lots, just a small stretch. I'm thinking if placed correctly it would work. Sorry if it seems like a silly question :o) thanks guys!

    stewy, my bf has (very small) attached earlobes and he pierced and stretched to 10mm. In my opinion, it looks better when stretched because they expand and his actually look like real earlobes now :P
    So yeah, just go for it!

    26mm both lobes, 6mm second lobes, 6mm left inner conch, 8mm septum, 2.4mm inner labia, 1.6mm nipples, 1.2mm nostril

    Tragus (l), Double Helix (l), Rook (r), Conch to conch Industrial (r), Daith (l), Snug (l) lobes (l@2.4mm r@0mm).
    Body;
    Navel.(2mm)
    Hoping for;
    Septum, snug (L), antitragus (R), more lobes, forward helix(L), horizontal industrial (hopefully, R). Double tongue, Inverse navel, collarbone MD's, 6mm/8mm lobes, horizontal nipples, VCH/Triangle
    (if i ever get brave enough.)

    Retired;
    Lobes (l&r) second time up.
