    ...i'm having to pay for all of my tapers plugs, etc myself because my parents disapprove and won't fund it..so i can't afford to buy 'nice' looking plugs...
    Boo Hoo!!! You make it sound like they should be paying for your plugs. Why should they?? I believe if you're old enough to make a commitment to stretching, then you're old enough to buy your own jewellery for goodness sake.

    I wouldn't dream of asking my parents to buy me plugs, because it's been my decision (and at my own risk) and it's not their responsibility. You buy what you can afford, that's life.

    Somehow in my reply I managed to completely miss that, and...WTF? You (obviously not you Ilora, I mean ninetyeights) think everyone with stretched ears has their parents 'fund' them? Lulz. Don't we wish. My parents have never given my money to buy jewellery, yet I have 6 pairs of dichro (5 from Industrial Strength, 1 from Glasswear Studios, not the cheap eBay stuff), blue glass tunnels, white acrylic plugs, white Kaos earskins, coconut wood, horn plugs with abalone inlay and...a few more I've forgotten, I think. I'm a bit drunk, shush.

    Yes, that was partly to boast about my collection, I know. I do love it though ;D

    wtf?

    it wasn't meant like that at all. i'm 16, don't get an allowance, don't get EMA and there are no vacancies for saturday work ANY WHERE here. what i'm saying is that i don't see the need to buy lovely looking plugs for each stage when i'm poor and planning to progress pretty soon.

    taken the wrong wayyyyyyyyyyy. i'm saying that i have no money so won't be buying nice plugs for EVERY stage instead saving up for when i finally do get the the size i like- you said you hated how some people's ears were full of 'cheap' stuff. well, what i'm saying is that you shouldn't be too hard on them as a lot of people aren't rich enough to buy the best for each stage- instead prefer to wait until they're at their 'goal'.

    i'm shocked the same comment can be misconstrued twice.
