    I Have Started Stretching My Ears

    I had gotten my ears pierced back in October of last year. Fast forward to May of this year and I had gotten the itch to stretch my piercings. I had gotten my stretching tapers and circular barbells from amazon. When I got the kit, I decided the time to stretch was here. I went...

    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...

    Today marks the beginning of my journey.

    . Didn't quite know what to expect.. But hey, it's not too bad :) I'm excited... My plans are to go up to 0g right now my ears are a 12g? I think.. The packaging I think said 2-8mm which I'm pretty sure 2mm is 12g.. Although if I had a choice I probably would of gone 14g first...

    I'm only at a 6g right now,

    but I plan to stretch to a 0g. I'm really happy Starbucks changed their policy to let baristas have stretched ears. They can't be bigger than a quarter, but luckily I don't plan on stretching that big just because I'm afraid my lobes won't return to normal size if I decide to...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    Reached My Goal

    After being at a 2g for years, I got the urge to finally stretch up to my goal of 00g. I love them and it will probably be years before I get the urge to stretch any further. For now I am happy at 00g and can't wait to buy all sorts of cute plugs.

    I have my first holes stretched to 7/16

    and my second holes stretched to a 4g. I've been sizing my ears for over a year now and have no problems with them. I absolutely love them and continue to stretch them.

    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...
