So, I see a lot on tumblr and facebook about people poorly stretching their ears. I’ve got a little story. I had been stretching for five years. The last three I stretched properly and slowly, but for the first two I was young and super stupid. My ears were totally wrecked and I just spent a grand and a half getting my ears sewn up because they looked terrible. STRETCH THE RIGHT WAY! It’s not worth it to skip sizes and stretch too fast just to get to the size you want.
