    I want to stretch my ears because it is different and very cute! Plus, my boyfriend’s ears are stretched and I think it looks great on him!

    I watched a lot of Nat Geo as a kid. I always wanted to be from a tribe in the Amazon. Thought they looked so cool. I got. My ears pierced as soon as my parents would let me

    I did not stretch my ears until I was 40. My boyfriend inspired me to do it. When I was younger, it was not the norm, not many people did it. I feel more comfortable doing it in today’s times. It’s an expression of me.

    I first stretched up to 14gauge so that I could make some spiral earrings out of a wire that was heavy enough to not deform easily. I’ve now decided to stretch to 10mm because I’d love to wear some labradorite or other gemstone plugs.

    I’ve always loved the way they look stretched, I’ve always hated normal earings, AND I can wear acrylic, glass, plastic, silicon, and other materials which is AWESOME cuz I’m super allergic to most metals! As soon as I started stretching I was hooked!!
