    Yeah, through earskins or wrapped in bondage tape would be fine, imo I wouldn't use PTFE though, the porosity would probably mean you may not get much protection.
    these make me cool rite guys??

    I've used Vitamin E oil (in the capsules, popped open) and Jojoba oil. Vitamin E I found quite sticky, and Jojoba oil I found pretty runny! Neither that ideal for me. I've used different moisturisers on my lobes too, by far my favourite is this or this. I wouldn't use it for stretching though, just massages. For stretching I use KY Jelly (or the cheap alternative).

    I actually love Lemony Flutter by Lush as a lobe moisturiser for massages. It's primarily a cuticle butter, so it's really rich and lovely. It also smells like lemon drizzle cake I second the Cocoa Butter suggestion too, if you want something a bit lighter.
    these make me cool rite guys??

    It's 6 a tub, but a little goes a looong way, especially if you warm it between your fingers

    If you run by some unrefined Shea Butter, make sure to get some because it's sooo good for lobes. I originally got it for my sensitive skin but I discovered how great and moisturising and lubricating it is
    Also, if you want a cheaper alternative to IS Naked oil, I made a batch of something similair by adding tea tree oil and lavander EO to some castor oil. It's thick and moisturising, plus the EOs are antiseptic and healing, so ears smell lavandery instead of earcheesey
    (also great for angry piercings)

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

    I just wanted to say thanks for the advice on here both lobes are now sitting pretty at 2.4, will be going to 3.2 soon. And my little brother is going to have my septum bullets that i'm done with to do his lobes! Stretching-fun for all the family!
    I'm using septum bullets to stretch with no problems, is it ok to keep using them as i go up or is there a point i will need to use something else? I have already bought a 3.2 and a 4, i'm planning to go to about 5-6mm.
    left ear: helix, 2x lobe 1.6mm 1x lobe 5mm
    right ear: industrial, 1x lobe 1.6mm, 1x lobe 5mm
    nostril x 2, side lip, septum, cheek MD, inverse navel

    retired piercings: 1x navel, 2x nipple, smiley, 2 x helix, tragus

    tattoos-5, more planned
