    No worries, thank you for the advice. By cleaning them do you mean remove the jewellery daily or just clean around them? What do you clean yours with? x

    I started off at 1.6mm and used to just clean around them at that size and at 2mm but had lil 2.4mm and 3mm tunnels/bullets and would take them out to clean and used Simple face wash, then clean my lobes with the same, let them air dry, rub some jojona oil in and pop the jewellery back in, did that right up to 6mm where I'm at now, I wash em still every day and oil them up or wipe a bit of holy buttr on them but I don't religiously massage or anything, I just keep them clean and moisturised.

    6mm is a lovely size, and doesn't distort the ear does it.

    4mm is the next standard size. If you're having trouble or think it's too big of a jump, 3.2mm is pretty common, and GlassWearStudios also make 3.5mm jewellery I think. Or use PTFE tape!

    ^ I seem to remember tracking down 3.5mm as I found 3-4mm too big of a jump.
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    Both lobes 1/2", 5mm, 1.6mm
    Left rook & 5mm helix punch
    Right helix x2 & forward helix
    VCH, 5mm tongue
