Anyone know why my ear won’t stretch?
I’ve had the 1.5mm stretcher in for like 5 days (pathetic, I know) and I’m trying the 2mm one now and it just won’t go through! It’s pissing me off ¬¬ It hurts and I don’t want to tear it but surely it should be working??
Because stretching isn’t a race, and a small size by no means is pathetic. It’s a sign of listening to your body.
It’s not going through because it’s still fresh. Your skin hasn’t relaxed and calmed enough to be able to stretch up yet, meaning if you try and force it through, your skin and piercing will become damaged and aggravated.
Waiting at least a month between sizes is the only way to stretch, no matter what method.
