What size are your stretched ears? and How long did it take you to get to your size?

We want to hear how long it took you to get to the size you wanted.  We always give the advice of taking your time and taking it slow, but please let us how long it took you.

    I’m currently in a size 12 gauge. I had to repeirce my ears to even begin gauging, because the back of my ear holes closed up. I then proceeded to a 16, 14, and now a 12. It’s taken my roughly 2 months to size up from a size 18 to a 12. You should never stretch if it hurts. I mean unless you want a torn lobe or keloids. I call them butthole ears, because that’s what they look like. It might be uncomfortable, but it should never be painful. If there is blood. Take it out asap. Clean your ear, and wait a few hours to put back in the size you were already in. Give it another month or so then try again. Remember, what’s the point in having your ears gauged if they look like shit.

    i went from a 14gauge to 13mm in 2 months. now before anyone says anything bad i have a genetic skin condition called ehlers danlos syndrome which means my body doesnt have enough collegen so my skin is super stretchy like a rubber band. this also means that because my skin stretched like an elastic it dint have to rip or form scar tissue so if i were to just leave out the plugs i would go back down in no time.

    I have mine stretched to a 00. It took about 2-3 months. I feel like it should be done over a longer period of time than that, but I was impatient. 😉

    My ears are stretched to 0, though I’d like to move up a size or two more. I’ve been stretching my ears for over three years, but have lost sizes twice to loss of jewelry after life happened

    I’m at 1/2inch. Took me about 8 months.
