Infection from stretching too fast 😔


So I was trying to go from a 2g to a 00g one night while drunk. It wasn’t a pretty sight. My friend tried pushing the taper through and she was like girl your ear is bleeding you want me to stop? And I was sitting there grittin my teeth cause it was hurting really bad. Needles to say I backed the taper out saw the blood and vomited. It was not a good night.


Back during my drinking days, I decided to go up a size while super drunk with none other than silicone plugs 🤦🏽‍♀️ The next morning, I was wanting to wash the hangover away with a shower .. my left ear was throbbing so I wanted to alleviate the pressure by taking the gauge out .. a very warm stream of blood poured out of my torn ear lobe and I couldn’t wear gauges for a little over a year .. it was an ugly/painful healing process. Something I have made sure to never repeat again !


I’ve always had trouble stretching my ears they can be super sensitive. My friend talks smack cause I use the tape technique but the safer the better plus she says my ear holes looks better then hers <3


Omg! Yes! I’m having an issue now, I cant get passed size 00g. I will be looking up easy safe methods again soon 😁
