    Do you apply it after taking the piercings out or am I ok rubbing a bit around them every day?

    Hello everybody!

    Next stretch, I'll reach my (4th) goal size - 1/2" (12.7mm)

    I might go bigger since I think my lobe can take it without
    being significantly distorted...

    My question is: at what gauge will jewellery become notably scarcer?

    ^I would say around an inch, maybe even 20mm-ish, but you can find lovely stuff after that too. Depends what you're after really.

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

    My lobes are currently 4mm I believe. I don't particularly want to go any bigger (although I am not saying never) but for right now I would like to start expanding my jewellery collection as I am a bit sick of the boring titanium tunnels I got them pierced with.

    I got them pierced at this size almost 3 months ago after having them gunned when I was about 12 both with no issues. I think they would be fine with jewellery change yes? Especially as I am not planning on changing the size.

    So my question is, where do I buy very lovely, 4mm plugs. Is there much of a range at such a small size?

    L & R 4mm lobe | L & R 2nd & 3rd lobe | L double helix | L inner conch | L rook | R helix | R forward helix | R tragus (re-pierced) | R outer conch
    L nostril | Septum | Madonna | L (Devil) & R (Angel) nipple | Nape dermal x2 (vertical) | Cleavage dermal | Navel (re-pierced #2) | VCH



    Failed: Navel (rejected x2) | R tragus (migrated) | L collar bone dermal (rejected)
    Wish list: R double inner conch | Tongue

    I get a lot of stuff off BAF which I think is quite popular with some peeps on here but I'm not sure whether is shipping is different seeing as Aus is about as far away as possible from anything :P !! I'm a 4mm and there's a good range around, but the detailing and reeeeaaally nice plugs don't get going, from what I've seen, until after about 8mm. There are a lot of gorgeous hanging styles about at 4mm though.

    EDIT: Ps. I'd say it might be a bit early to start changing them, but I'm sure someone else can better advise.
