So I had this friend that I used to be quite close with from my work, and about 6 months ago we were talking to each other about modifications. We both expressed interest in stretching our ears, and she came up with the idea of starting to stretch together. This friend of mine however hadn’t even had her ears pierced, so she said she would get them pierced the next week and then start stretching the week after that.
Having done my research on the subject, I told her that she’d have to wait at least 6 months after getting them pierced to start stretching them, though I recommended up to a year. I told her I’d be happy to wait until then to start stretching with her, however she did not take this well and I haven’t seen her often since then.
Despite my advice, in the not even six months she got them pierced, her ears are now stretched to an inch. They are disgusting and red and man, the blowouts. It really looks like she has two earlobes. And yet, even though they look disgusting, she thinks they look fantastic. Since the time I saw her I started stretching too, but mine are only up to 6G because I’ve been doing it really slowly and looking after my lobes, and seeing what hers look like because of her rushed job really enforces the fact that being patient and taking care of your lobes is the only way to do it. Unless you want to end up with disgusting looking ears. Its not worth it.
WHAT’S AWFUL: Starting to stretch only a week or so after getting them pierced. Stretching them to an inch within six months of getting them pierced. Having horrible looking ears that are obviously damaged and need some serious TLC.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: Take everything out and just leave it to heal, get some jojoba oil on that and hope to hell that they start to heal without any kind of surgery.
