Multi CBR Lobe Stretching
fellow metal addict. My obsession with peircings began about 6 months ago. At first I wanted my tounge peirced so bad! I pleaded with my parents but there was "no peircing of any kind besides 1 hole in 1 ear" going on in this house. Which I dont have to tell you was really bumming me out. So all I could do was get my ear peirced at a little place in the mall with a gun. I was Really nervous about getting my ear peirced, and yeah I know your thinking, damn what a wussy, but at this time I knew nothing about body peircings so I thought it would hurt. But it didn't at all. Just a small sharp click. If you want to get your ear peirced just to stretch it and get a CBR, then you might as well just go to a peircing shop and get it done there, because you wont have to wait to strech the hole! You can just have it put in right there, at any gauge you want. Unless you want to get something like a 0 Gauge, then your going to have to have a dermal punch done, although I think I would much rather just stretch it!!
Well I was excited about getting my ear peirced. But I got through it, I just sat in the chair, they peirced it and that was that. Then you can only guess what happened. It gets infected! After 5 days! But luckily I was prepared, well kinda. I had a 14 Gauge CBR with a Hematite bead. Now it starts getting painful.... The infection had basically kept the hole open, but not all the way. I went into my bathroom, took the bead off the CBR and braced for impact. I put the ring in about half-way and decided that it was closed all the way through to the other side. I then shoved it through the back of the hole, it hurt like hell!! But I got it through and had a hell of a time putting the bead back on. Well after that healed in 4 weeks, I went and got a 12 Gauge CBR. I thought I would have a little trouble putting that one in but I didn't. After about a week and a half I decided to go back and get a 10 Gauge. Now I had a bit of pain putting that one in, but I finally did. Now I was really happy I had a 10 Gauge which I thought was a pretty good size, but then I decided I wanted something bigger. Now I hadn't stretched the hole any bigger then 10 Gauge so I wasn't just going to go and get a 8 Gauge. So the only thing I could think of to do was to put a 12, and 14 Gauge in the same hole. So I did that, and after 3 days I took them back out only to discover that the hole had been stretched a lot. So I just kept playing with them and after a while I could put the 10, 12, and 14 in the same hole. The next week I went and got a 16 Gauge barbell that I was guna use for my eyebrow but that didnt work out so I decided to put that barbell in my ear, so I now have a 10, 12, 14, and 16 Gauge in my ear, 1 hole. About 3 weeks later was my birthday, so I decided to ask my mom and dad for a 6 Gauge CBB. After I got the 6 Gauge I Managed to get it in and it looked soo cool as also it felt really wierd/cool at the same time. So that was about a week ago, and I think I already wanna wait a little while and get 4 Gauge sometime in the future. All of this happened over a period of about 3 months. Which I thought was pretty fast although you may not think so. One thing I do not reccomend doing during the healing process is picking at the little crusties. Which was something I didn't know you weren't supposed to do until about a month ago, when it didn't matter anymore!! If you are someone who's parents wont let them peirce anything, heres something I suggest you do. Go to a body jewlery store, and if they are a good store, they will have Tapering Pins. Now usually Tapering Pins will have a screw in base, where you can screw in a barbell. All the Tapering Pins I have seen are actually sharp, so you can easily just use it for a peircing needle. Get that, and a barbell, and you're set!! Well I hope you liked my story! If you have any questions about anything, feel free to e-mail me! Bye peoples!
