Flares [03 Jul 2007|09:19pm]

[ mood | content ]

Ok so this might be a stupid question but I'm going to ask it anyways. See I've heard that Flared plugs are a pain (literally) to get in. A friend of mine told me that they hurt like crap when putting them in. I've never worn any...mostly cause I haven't found any I like but I've been finding some good ones lately and so now I'm curious.

Any advice or insight?

last friday, got a 2g punch in my lower conch. they punched it a bit smaller and then stretched it, to keep it from bleeding. and we put a single flaired eyelet in it for now, to make healing easier, but in a couple months i'm going to have it switched out to a big ass barbell.

newbie [02 Mar 2006|11:17pm]

[ mood | confused ]

Hey, I just joined in hopes of some tips on how to go about this. I'm to a 0g now (lobes) and the tapers I bought this time around are very heavy. Not liking being smacked in the face by a titanium spiral every time I shake my head, I went and got some 0g flared plugs tonight. Can't get them in. I have no issue going up in size with tapers (duh), but these are the same size as the heavy tapers. Does it just take a bit of practice? I'm not sure if maybe trying to push them through wasn't the way to go about it or what. So should I ease them in at a certain angle? Possibly stupid questions, but I'm a bit stumped. Any advice? Thanks so much!

if I were to ungauge my ears, how would I go about doing that?

do I have to gauge back down or can I just take them out? they're just 6mm right now.

lite brite pegs make really good earrings if you're a 4g.

Quick question: Would this hole be positioned too low to stretch? (Sry for the stupidity.)

healing [14 Oct 2005|05:33pm]
'lo. I just got my inner conch pierced today....

Then I realized it's not the placement I wanted, so I'm going to take it out (or get my dad to take it out - it was pierced with a CBR). I believe it's a 14g.
Do any of you have any tips for how to get the hole to heal successfully? how often should i clean it (and what with.. Q-tips & water & salt-water soaks?)

Also I'm healing some shitty placements of my lobes as well (today was not a good day for me). Those are obviously a lot easier, but if you have any tips on that I'd appreciate it... (for instance, i don't believe i ought to clean it/them with rubbing alcohol (i have 3 done today and 4 that are a year & 5 years old).. clarification please?)

Thank you!!

Question :) [06 Oct 2005|09:22pm]

Hello everyone :) I'm new to the community, and I have a rather stupid question.

My tragus is pierced and fully healed, and I'd like to change the ring. However, I have no idea how to remove the ring. It's a ball closure, and I'm not sure if I need to twist the ring apart, or unscrew the ball. If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it (and I apologize if this insults anyone's intelligence - I'm just clueless).

Probing the issue [05 Oct 2005|08:34am]

So you wanna hear something funny? And by funny I mean somewhat horrendous.

So for the past two years I've been stretching my ears. My front holes are now at 1/2" and I can wear up to 10 in my second holes but usually opt for 14 ga captives. I've put a lot of time, thought, and discipline into my stretching and just about a month ago arrived at my desired final size. My parents realized what I was doing somewhere around 4ga and while they made fun of them and said they were disgusting they never forcibly tried to make me remove them. Everything seems fine, right? sure, until the time comes that my father has gotten frustrated with me always having his truck and is actually considering buying me a car of my own. A lovely ford probe. So we drive over to go look at one that we end up not buying, and on the drive back we're discussing other possibilities and he says that he'll pay up to around 3,000 but he's not going to buy me a car while I have "those things" in my ears. And then is immovable on that. Unless I take out my plugs he will not buy me a car, despite the fact that I promised to not wear tunnels around him and not to do anything else until they're done paying for college (I'm a high school senior). Despite the fact that my parents know that I'm not doing it to be rebellious, despite the fact that if I either wear my hair down or wear solid plugs it's extremely hard to tell that I have stretched ears (So there goes the "it kills your future" arguement.). Add to that the fact that this is thge best time of my life to do this because I DONT have to worry about job interviews (I have opportunities lined up and my parents dont want me working during the school year anyway) and the like.

So after much thought I decided that I was not going to compromise such a personal decision I made about my own body for something material. Im perfectly happy driving the truck (hey i love being the girl in the ford pick-up) and I'm finally happy with myself. I decided that a 2750$ car isn't worth the loss of something that means that much to me.

But I'm still a little sad, and so I decided to ask you guys for similar stories to make me realize that I'm not alone :-D.

im shannon, and i just joined.

so. my left ear has been stretched for a long time now. at one point it was up to 1/2 inch.. but its currently about a 4g because theres been nothing in it for maybe 6 months.
i still have no idea how it shrunk so much, but anyway.
my right ear, however, has never been stretched because it always hurts about a million times more than the other and im constantly afraid of ripping it and being left with a grossly torn apart bloody pussing ear.

today i decided that i want to start stretching again, and the size different just does. not. look. right.

any suggestions for getting my right ear to stretch without causing any permanent damage?

every comment would be appreciated < 3.
