10ga to 2ga Ear Piercing

developed the habit a few years ago of getting pierced every time I went abroad to somewhere interesting. So while in San Francisco last summer (96) I decided it was time to get piercings that would actually be visible in everyday life. So I decided to take the plunge and start on stretching my lobes, something I'd wanted to do for ages. The problem was that I had practically no earlobes, my ears just continued around from the end of the cartilage to the neck - leaving only a few mm between the edge of my ear and the inter-tragal ... read more

Colie's Tragus Piercing Experience

t was my 20th birthday and I was sitting around feeling sorry for myself and browsing through the pictures on BME to get some ideas for my next piercing, it was a toss-up between a tongue pierce and a tragus. I rounded some friends up for support and headed to the Enchanted Dragon, where I had gotten my nipple and navel pierced, I figured that I could decide there. Well on the drive there one of my friends managed to talk me out of the tongue. I figured that would be a hard one to hide from my parents anyway ... read more

Do your ears hang low?- A (long) stretching experience

efore I get started, I want to give a disclaimer. I do not advise anyone to use my methods or time spans when stretching their lobes. I know I went too fast, but I also know my body very well, and these methods workedfor me, without any difficulties that I consider serious. They may not do the same for you. Thank you, drive through }:). With that out of the way, I can get on with my experience. I just recently finished stretching my ear lobes to 1" in slightly over one year. Last year, I decided that the french ... read more

Earlobe Stretching

I have played around with piercing my ears for many years and have had almost every portion pierced at one point or another. This was usually done somewhat temporarily as my preferred method was to just run another safety pin through wherever I felt like having a piercing at the time. Eventually I stopped wearing earrings for awhile because of my increasing involvement in physical activities which made them liabilities (karate, rugby, etc.). This resulted in all but the two oldest and most used holes (one in each lobe) closing up completely. Late in '96 I began to feel that ... read more

Stretching/Low Garth Experience

etching/Low Garth Experience This is my stretching/low garth piercing experience: A while back I wanted to change my small silver-ringed ear look. I currently had eight earings up to the top of my cartilage but I thought it needed something else. I slowly put more and more silver sleepers in my lobe piercing, I got up to an eight gauge so I went and bought a proper surgical steel ring. I left that in for quite a while. Later I felt that I wanted to go bigger so that I could have a visible flesh tunnel in place of the ... read more

Lobe Stretching Experience

e Stretching Experience My name is Deborah and I got interested in body piercing/modification after my second year at Purdue University. My first piercing was my nose, which I no longer have (didn't really like the way it looked). I now have my nipples, tongue and navel pierced. After having those done I wanted to try lobe stretching. Most people (your average non-pierced people) thought my piercings were odd enough but the idea of stretching my lobes they could not comprehend (my parents, in particular, thought it was disgusting). But I digress. The point of this essay is to share ... read more

Stretching my ears

etching my ears My experience Stretching my ears from 12ga.to 0ga in one month. First off I'd like to say that this isn't something I recommend to anyone. My experience went smoothly, but I knew the risk of blowing my ears out, I chanced it, I was lucky, I know others who weren't. Try this at your own risk, or be smart and don't try it my way. It all started June 2nd, The day I graduated from Catholic high school, after four years of not being able to wear earrings in school (mind you I already had three in ... read more

Ear Stretcing Update

Stretcing Update I have 1 1/8 inch holes in my ears. They are very healthy and happy. I will explain how I got them this big so maybe it can give people a few ideas and maybe someone can avoid some of the early mistakes I made. I has taken me about 4 1/2 years or so to get this size so don't rush. I had my ears pierced with a gun (yucky) at age 12. I streched them to a 16g and then a 14g with no problem. I purchaced taper pin from gauntlet to aid in my stretching. ... read more

Helix Pierce Experience

ix Pierce Experience Helix Pierce Experience Ever since having my first ever piercing about a month ago (my tongue), I've been thinking what to get done next. I've heard tons of horror stories about the guy who did my tongue since having it so I decided not to go there again (Renegades in Dundee, Scotland). I'd been told that there was a really experienced piercer elsewhere in Dundee so I thought I'd check it out. The shop is basically a tattoo shop (as most are in Britain) called Graeme's Tattoo Studio. I'd been there once before to get a tattoo, ... read more

Keloid excision experience

oid excision experience Keloid excision experience Hi everybody... In keeping up with my tradition of just talking about my nasty keloids, I just wanted to let everybody know that I had the excised yesterday at my plastic surgeon. For those who need a little refreshing, or who are relatively new to r.a.b. (welcome!), I had developed a large keloid on my earlobe from a gun piercing when I was 14. A few years later, it had developed into a full-on keloid (the piercing never really healed), with the keloid on the front really red and itchy, with the keloid on ... read more
