    Is going from a 3 to a 4 a big jump then? I don't wanna go ahead and try it it's not gonna work out. I'd hate to mess up as I tried stretching ages ago and my first time it rejected and bled!! Altho I used a flared tunnel and haven't this time round and it's all gone perfect

    I found it fine. Some people don't have stretchy ears. And yeah...you shouldn't stretch with DF jewellery.

    Novelty shaped tunnels are fine, but aren't really supposed to be worn for more than a few hours at a time. If you wore them Tuesday-Friday then I'm not surprised your ears complained :P
    these make me cool rite guys??

    Hey everyone!

    I have a question. I stretched my earlobes to 00 about 3 years ago. After wearing tunnels for about 4 months, I realized that it wasn't for me and took it off. I thought the holes would grow back to a small size in no time. However, I still have pretty big holes in my earlobes after all this time and I dont know what to do. Is there any methods/operations to make those holes shrink?

    Thanks in advance!

    After 3 years I'd say you're pretty much stuck with them. You could try oil massages, and some people have had success using haemorrhoid cream, but I wouldn't think you'd make a significant difference now. Worth a try though I guess. Unfortunately a lot of people jump into stretching without really considering how permanent it is. Did you stretch very quickly and/or skip sizes? The more you've damaged your ears, the less likely they'll shrink back down.

    As for operations, yes, you can pay to get them stitched back up - either by a plastic surgeon or by a professional mod artist. I can't think of any off the top of my head who are in Canada though.

    hi people. I have been at a 6mm for a while now, and am considering going to 8mm. Can anyone suggest how i do this without the use of a taper, as i have used tapers so far, going up in small amounts. I think 6-8 jump a bit much, and i feel a 7 would slide in, can i use micropore oiled of course, for this? thanks in advance
