Asked by Bridget: Help! Ear stretching?
I’m trying to stretch my ears, and at the moment I’m trying to stretch them to a size 8.
I’m having a REALLY hard time, I had left the 10′s in there for about 6 weeks, so when it came time to go to an 8 I tried putting plugs in there and they wouldn’t go in what so ever, I then put in some tapers and they had gone in..(with a little bit of force). The last few days my ears have been pretty sore, and today I went to take off my hoodie and one of the tapers caught on to my hoodie and ripped out. I went into the bathroom to check on it, and I noticed it was bleeding, and the hole in my ear isn’t even round anymore, it’s almost like a star shape. My lobe is also kinda hard/swollen. My other ear is sore, but it doesn’t look bad, it’s not swollen or red. My main concern is, what should I do, my ear is bleeding, it’s sore, and I have a feeling it’s going to start happening to the other one. Did anyone else have a problem moving up to an 8? I would really like to continue to stretch my ears, this isn’t even close to the size I would like to be at…advice/tips, please!!!!

You are trying to stretch too fast. You need to wait a minimum of 2 months to go from 10 g to 8 g. For the sake of your lobes you might want to try stretching with tape. You would need to pick up some teflon tape. ONLY use TEFLON TAPE which can be found in the plumbering asile at Home Depot or Lowe’s. Any other kind of tape will leach bad chemicals into your body. Stretching doesn’t hurt. If it does, it’s because either they are stretching too fast or skipped a gauge (or two).
Stretching from 18-8g is easy and no pain what so ever if you do it right, but it a slow process. It’s not a race, if you go fast you will have a blowout, which is a tearing of the lobes which creates scar tissue and deforms the lobes.
Here is how long it usually takes between gauges:
Fresh piercing to first stretch (18g-16g): Approx 5 to 6 months
16g to 14g – 1 month
14g to 12g – 1 month
12g to 10g – 1.5 months
10g to 8g – 2 months
8g to 6g – 3 months
6g to 4g – 3 month
4g to 2g – 3 months
2g to 0g – 4 months
0g to 00g – 4 months
Remember the slower you go the happier your lobes will be. Never dead stretch (just shoving in the next gauge). Always use a taper, or taping. With taping add one layer of teflon tape every 5-7 days, and change the entire wrapping once a month. Check here for more information about taping.
If you decide to go with a taper for a while usually steel is recommended over acrylic because they make for a smooth transition. Tapers aren’t meant to be worn for more than 1 hour. And always lube it up with soap and water, Vitamin E oil, Jojoba Oil, Emu Oil, or naked oil before insertion.
While your stretching ONLY wear No Flare or Single Flare plugs and never use acrylic as they will stick and cause infection since it is a porous material. Also don’t use silicone in a fresh stretch. Stick to glass, steel, titanium, or stone.
You should give your lobes massages with a moisturizing oil twice a day to make them stretchy and supple. Use Vitamin E oil found in capsule form in the vitamin section at Walmart or pharmacies. Just break open a capsule and use the oil. You could even use olive oil.

Asked by coeurdouxmignon: Sliming down after baby?
I had a baby in late November and I can’t wait to get going with a diet.
I’m breastfeeding exclusively, which I heard makes you loose quicker. But it’s been over 6 weeks since I left the hospital and I’ve only lost about 5lbs (not including the 20something I dropped in the hospital).
Even worse, it seems like my thighs are bigger, as well as my behind. My daughter is deffinently worth the extra weight, but I’m more than anxious to slim down.
Did any of you mums gain in your thighs and behind? Do you have any tips?
