    also, with needles they're hollow so the flesh is removed.
    Don't want to sound rude, but that's not true. Piercing needles do not remove any skin. Because they're cut to a point, they're amazingly sharp - this creates a clean 'slice' through the skin, causing less trauma than a gun shooting a blunt stud through your skin.

    Just thought I ought to clarify

    The smaller, more discreet variety of 'tunnel' can be quite fetching; the larger sort (i.e. those intended to distend the lobe to the point of disfigurement) strike me as being inversely proportionate with the I.Q. of the wearer.

    i really agree. i mean, i like small ones but the biggest i'd personally wear are 5/8..

    that's not how big i want to go, but i think that's as big as you can get without needing surgery for them to go back to 'normal' again. people like pauly unstoppable of myspace..

    I like them. I currently have 4mm and 2mm.

    I did have a 3mm one but it fell out a few days ago then went all small again which was gutting as it was time to stretch it again, and now i am going to have a 5mm and a 2mm

    But nyhoos, I am not planning on going too big, will probably stop at about 1cm.

    :eek: How does he put his arms down... and walk and stuff? Wow... he has muscles I barely knew existed!

    As for the ear thing... when I first saw one someone had a rather large one and it rather freaked me out. However, seeing the small ones I think they look okay. Not personally my taste but it doesn't look bad.

    Here's a question - cartilage done by needles or gun? I'm an absolute fairy when it comes to pain so i want it to be over with... whats the general consensus on this?

    I've currently got 3 in each ear with a view to tragus and upper cartilage being done. Had my 1st 2 with gun and 3rd with needle - a scarring experience lol, especially when i looked in the mirror half way through and looked like i had glowsticks hanging off my ear.

    baby plugs are cute, I don't mind them. How easy is it for the lobe to stretch back btw?
    Can someone please shed light on why i was negged for this post?

    My ears are at 1/2" currently, I doubt I'll go any bigger. Maybe a little, but not for quite a while. That's 12.7mm if you're no good with conversions, and if I buy from the UK I can wear both 12mm and 13mm plugs.

    I'm really not fond of the look of regular earrings any more, I adore my ears, to be honest, haha :p:

    ^ Those are some of my favourite plugs right now. I need to take more pictures...

    http://s74.photobucket.com/albums/i2...pire/timeline/
    ^ If anyone cares, that's a timeline of my ears, from 10g to now, at 1/2". The first picture is 7/16" (11mm), the second is 1/2" (12.7mm), the one called earskins is 0g (8mm) and the one called greendichro is also 0g, I just forgot to rename those ones.

    For the people asking how likely it is for them to close up...you can pretty much go to 5mm or 6mm and have it almost guaranteed to close up to virtually 'normal', BUT there is always a chance it won't close up. Some peoples ears will close back from 14mm or bigger, some people can stretch to 4mm and they won't shrink even a little. It's completely dependant on you. The way you stretch & care for your ears also has a lot to do with it though. Stretch properly and you'll avoid any scar tissue which will make it more likely that they would close.

    Really though, stretching should be considered permanent unless you're planning on getting them surgically closed.

    Negged is negative rep, the little green gems show how popular you on (like how many people think your replies are good) see faq. And secondly... see faq lol.

    Plugs is the correct word, heh & they're from www.glasswearstudios.com - a wonderful site for glass plugs.
