I’m currently arguing with a dumbass about correct terminology. Do you see what I’m working with? Jesus Christ.
'I've been GAUGING my ears for years. They're perfectly fine. Pretty sure I know a lot more about it than @Brittany who more than likely depends on Google searches to figure out the correct way to argue her point. What terminology someone uses while stating they've been stretching their lobes is completely irrelevant. Gauge or stretch I know exactly what they mean and that's all that matters.all I was saying boo.LOL I could care less about who's bigger than who.LOL.I know tons of ppl bigger than me.its just not that serious.pretty sure you're not a doctor….or you're lobes wouldn't be stretched/gauged.LOL.its a trend at this point which is why I don't take it seriously anymore.I just love my lobes.I enjoy the questions and remarks AB everything.piercings/tattoos are a passion of mine.BC I like the way they look and honestly enjoy constantly having a goal.and idgaf what anyone calls anything.LOL.'
I fucking hate it when people call stretching a trend, hate.
A girl in my Physics class was talking to me, and I noticed her lip piercing looked different. So I asked her what she did with it. She said she had swallowed her retainer when she sneezed and she put LEAD into the hole to stop it from closing up. Her exact words after that were “It burns like a bitch, and that’s probably not a good thing. But oh well, it’s either this or it closes up.” There were so many things I wanted to say to her, but class started. SHE IS SO STUPID.
and HOLY SHIT, it really did hurt like satan. FFS. I thought “c’mon, it’s not the first time, and I manage pain really well, I even felt pleasure while I was being tattooed, I don’t even need to put ice on it before I pierce it” and I was wrong. Oh yes I was.
I didn’t know my ear cartilage was made of adamantium LOL the fucking needle couldn’t go through it it didn’t matter how much I pushed.. god, the paaaaain lol
The Story of the Completely Retarded Stretch and the Stupid Stupid Piercings.
So, a few months back, maybe November, I decided out of sheer boredness to stretch my ears. I had no.fucking.clue. what I was doing, so i first used the pen nib from my tablet pen [about a size 16 or 14] in both ears. No problem. Then I took some polymer clay baked it and waited for it to get cooler. So then I shoved the blunt end through my ear. Excruciating pain, mind you. I was at a 6g. A fucking 6g. Looking back, I realize how stupid I was, and how insanely terrible that was for my ears. Luckily, I escaped without a blowout, Even though I deserved one. Maybe I would’ve realized how dumb I was then. Even more, My ears are completely healthy to this day. I’m now at a 00g typically using my silicone earskins.
But if that wasn’t stupid enough for you, theres more.
Around March I learned that I’m just a spur of the moment person. I decided to pierce my septum. Hey. No pain this time. Great! No. That was such a stupid thing to do. I mean, my healing went great, and it was even too, heck. I still have it because i love it to bits and pieces. But It was such a stupid thing to do looking back on it. Plus, I stretched it up with my tablet pen nib [yes, the almighty nib] and used that but i kept loosing it so I just went back to an 18. When I finally stretched it to standard size, I shoved the ring in bluntly. That was the worst pain I had ever experienced.
BUT WAIT! THERES MORE :D
I decided it would be a fantastic Idea to do my smiley. All went well with that too, I also have this still for the same reasons. But now I know how stupid I was. Now I know how I should go about stretching, and going to get pierced.
