Thinking about stretching my ear, can anyone who has one give me some advice.

Firstly what's the minimun size i can put a plug/tunnel in?
Could i just leave a 1.2mm taper in (as i like the look of the spikes through the ear) and then still be able to change to a regular earing or would it stretch too much?
What size usually means that the ear lobe will not go back to it's original size hole?
Also anyone done it when they weree young and regret it. With it being to big to reverse?

Any help and advice appreciated

Thanks

As long as you don't stretch it over about 1cm it should be fine.

Don't do it though, they smell.

Thx.

about 3 to 4mm will heal fine though and still looks good imo:thumbsup:

Cool, and do they actually give off a smell of mouldy flesh, or is that just your take on how it looks?
Also 1cm, and it will stretch back?

Nice one, hace you done it to that size and it stretches back, if so how long would you say it'd take for it to stretch back to the regular piercing size

give the guy a break.....there are alternative scenes to just dressing like a topshop/topman manikin


wouldnt do it myself but it can look ok on some people as long as its not too big......expect a few stares tho

this isnt aimed @ the OP, but i do wonder in years to come what the people with body piercing's, tattoos ect will look like & wether they regrett having them done.

i had my ear pierced, not had it in for a few years now as it broke, but ive still got the hole in me ear, i could never take it out, i didnt like the feel of it going back in, turned my stomach.lol

I used to have mine done, to 3mm. Managed to get the 1.2mm through pretty much straight away, Then pretty much forced a 3mm taper in with soap to make it a bit easier, But im impacient so i just pushed it through.

Yeah it hurt like a bitch, yeah it did bleed, but after a month or so it healed fully (although it used to heal over so i had to force it back in whenever i was in work)

I took it out tho and just let it shrink back to normal size and gota normal one back in now though, no evidence that i ever really had it!

Yeah I know that's what i was thinking wether in the future i would regret having it done, and have a big droopy ear lobe, that's why i thought i'd ask for opinions and advice on here.

So you had a 3mm plug/tunnel in, and it's stretched back to normal size, how long would you say you had that in for as i guess the longer you have it in the more irreversable it is, and if i do it i'll try and do it slowly so i don't tear it etc.

Thanks

Ahh right, so not that long then, what made you decide to take it out?

I think it looks real bad just think when you're a gramps one ear will drop lower than the other unless you get both. You should know your nose and ears keep growing as you age.

Btw got a nipple piercing its made the nipple a bit bigger than the other but still love it. My mum got me it as an 18th birthday present. Though i think for sure it'll look stupid when i'm 40 odd. I'm now 26.

dont do it, you'll look like a tit.

Yeah I know that's what i'm concerned about, although i was hoping if i only stretched it to say 3mm like others have said, that it would go back. Although i'm not convinced it will :?

haha, i think he's a guy from the posts i've seen from him

Ive had mine stretched a while and i got to about 23cm then my tunnels kept falling out (boo) so i left them out for a whilte, got back down to about 10cm after a few years of a nice hole LOL (never great in job interviews) so now im back stretching them up. i think what the hell i aint getting a job soon so may as well be skint with nice ears LOL!

i think 9cm is as far as you can go after that its SAGGY LOBE

but also depends on how fast you stretch them up and the gaps you use between sizes?

I certainly wouldn't give you a job, you don't know the difference between mm & cm, lol.

23cm is about 9 inches, now that I'd like to see.
