    I'm at a 6g (4 mm) and I am seriously having to

    go through hell because of it. The size I want to get to is 2g but it's hard when my entire family is strictly religious. I have to deal with everyone saying I'll be in hell before I know it and that I shouldn't play with the devil. I don't believe in God but they don't know...

    Finally Figured It Out

    Finally took the challenge of stretching my ears which in turn is teaching me patience. I started bigger than I should, honestly because I didn't know any better. I'm hemophilic, so when my plugs gushed blood every time I took them out, I though it was normal, and one thing to...

    but so scared. I tried and I bailed. I might try to get a 1g taper or try the taping method.

    Where is your favorite place

    or website to buy natural jewelry? Acrylic makes my ears flair up, they're much happier wearing stone and wood jewelry.

    It's Quite Addictive

    I started stretching my ears back in school, only to 8mm. ended up having to take them out after a while. A few years later I decided I wanted to stretch again. I am now at 18mm and want to keep going.

    3 Inches

    I have my ears stretched to 3 inches. I was always fascinated by them, so, when I was about 12, I thought to myself, I should try. I started doing it behind my mom's back, and it went great-- until my mom found out. She found out when I was at an 8g, and she freaked. She never...

    for nearly four years and I'm up to 9/16, finally. 1 5/8 is my goal but if I get up to 7/8, I'll be happy.

    I'm 3/4" and I wanted to stop at 1 inch

    but I have already been 3/4" for well over two years so I already have TONS of plugs, tunnels, and all that jazz. So if I size up to 1" I'm going to have all of this 3/4" jewelry for nothing. Probably only the occasional breaks of letting my ears rest for a bit. *sigh*

    I'm at 2g right now,

    and I'm pretty happy with it. I love wearing tunnels, and at this size, you can see perfectly that my ears are stretched, but I can always shrink down if I want to.

    I just started stretching the second lobe

    peircings! If you are stretching your ears and it hurts or starts to bleed just stop! That means you either aren't doing it right, or they aren't ready or healed enough.

    I really wanna go up to an inch.

    Ive always loved the way stretched ears look and the jewelry is awesome. My mom doesn't want me to but my dad bought me a kit and said he doesnt mind lol. But this is something i really want and I've thought about it for years and my mind still hasn't changed.
