Went from 14G to 8G within 6 hours.
5 days later, (now) I want to stretch to 6G. but i need tapers. fuck.
I feel very, very sorry for your ears right now. Very.
What’s awful: Jumping 3 sizes in one go, and planning on stretching to another. Ear damage, blowouts and scar tissue ahoy!
How to fix it: Take your plugs out and leave them out. In three months, go to 14g. A month after that, 12g, a month after that, 10g, a month after that, 8g, a month after that, 6g. And so on and so forth (however 0g+ should wait 2-3 months). Tapers are NOT jewellery. You don’t drill a hole for a screw, and leave the drill bit in because ‘it’ll do’. No, it won’t. The same goes for tapers. Save your ears, you’ve only got two of them!
