    I've just done it after pissing about with it for 30 minutes (causing it to bleed slightly :( ) But I'm assuming they go in through the back and screw the front?

    You need smooth round ended plugs but, whatever. They wouldn't go in because your ears aren't ready.

    What would you suggest, most of the plugs are double flared are they going to fit ok? (I'm not sure what that means).

    Don't use double flared for new stretches, you won't be able to get them in. There's a lot of single flare or no flare glass out there, in fact there's pages of them on BAF and probably loads on ebay too. Glass is nice to wear as well, you may also want to look at the classified section on this forum, people often sell stuff, me included

    Ummm, can't remember, been ages since I ordered, usually looking at a couple of weeks or so. Also depending on how much you have ordered it may get stopped by customs which can delay further and incur fees but you have to have ordered over a certain amount for fees to be in place, forgotten how much now. I've also got stuff ranging from 1.2mm-6mm here.

    I've had my cartliage pierced for many years now and I've decided to stretch it..properly! lol. I got in a hot shower and then put the earring in. it went in like cake. Im now on day 12 of stretching to an 18g. how long does cartliage stretches roughly take to heal? I don't plan on going any larger but I was just curious because once my right ear is done I plan on starting my left.
    I have: Navel, Lobes x2, 1 cartilage in each ear, Nose

    Live with no regrets because at one point it was exactly what you wanted...

    i wear silicone ear skins for work, and i find them sometimes a lil itchy and uncomfortable to get out on a fresh stretch, but this only lasts a week or two, so maybe hold off for a couple of weeks, and then give it a go, see how you get on. if they dont feel ok, just switch back to what you had in before and leave it a lil longer imo
