I have an issue witg certain types of pulgs veing rejected by my ears. Also issues with them shrinking when i take them out while sick.

In the beginning stages of stretching I learned that I could not use silicone plugs. Idk if I’m allergic or what, but every time I use them my ears become infected.


I left my gauges out for a couple of days and they shrunk, I was at almost 1/2 inch. Now I have to start over at 2mm and it’s just frustrating don’t take them out unless you are positive you want smaller holes.


I was sizing up 11/16 in to 3/4 in and it was going just fine for about 2 weeks. And then all of a sudden my right ear got so swollen and painful so I sized down to 1/2in. I was so mad, I lost over a year of progress. Thankfully after my ear healed sizing back up was fine, but at the time I was devastated.

I wanted to size up from 0 to 00 but I had to go up half a size first, but the earrings I bought were too big and hurt. I decided to make my own custom spirals out of clay and then make another pair for when I went up to 00. It’s almost time to make some more.
