    I’ve wanted to stretch my ears for several years. I’ve found when things happen to my body that are out if my control, I do something that I can control. Right when Covid hit I got a group G strep infection in my leg. end of April spent 2wks in hospital, 2wks in rehab getting my leg strong enough to go home, still have woundcare 2x/week dealing with problems left by the terrible blisters. So now is the time for stretching my ears. Yes I did get the ok from my wound care doctor 😉😆 I just put in 4’s heafing to 00. looking forward to tunnels and gem stone plugs!

    I’ve always loved and collected gemstones. When I was in my early 30s I started to see the gauges that were just solid tiger eye or rose quartz and I was hooked. No conventional earrings give me the satisfaction of being able to wear the solid stones in my ears.

    I have loved the look. I’m edgier and I hated being told I couldn’t wear all my piercings at work. So I rebelled and stretched my ears. Been over 10 years and I still love then.

    When I was a kid… maybe 9 or 10, I really love National Geographic’s Magazine. I would spend all of my spare time looking through the pictures, trying to draw the animals and just day dreaming. Not so much reading the articles, the pictures were plenty for me at the time. I remember this one that featured some African Tribes with their traditional body modifications. I was so entranced and amazed that the human body could be molded like that, it was mind blowing for me. That was my definitely where my interest was peaked and it never went away.

    I love the looks you can achieve with stretched ears and feel they have more options for my aesthetic vs traditional earrings.
