I had my ears stretched before a couple of years ago to a 2 gauge. I let them shrink and now I am gauging agian. Now my holes were an 8 gauge starting this process agian, my holes didn't close up as much as I thought lol. Now I have ha 6 gauges in for the past 2 almost 3 weeks but they are starting to slip at an angle and are easy to take out too easy I'm afriad they'll come out at night. So since I have had guaged ears before do I have to wait the full month or can I go ahead and gauge up since my ears are showing signs of being ready?Answer Question

@Grismelda: Even stereotypically "normal" chicks torture themselves for fashion. Why should you judge somebody for wanting to do something different as opposed to someone waxing their legs? @LeeAnne: Stretching is NOT supposed to hurt. If it hurts, your ears aren't ready to go to that size yet. You should feel a slight warming when stretching but it should never be painful. Don't go up in size too fast because it can cause scar tissue, which will make it hard for you to stretch in the future. Also try using Vitamin E Oil when stretching, it's the best thing I've found to stretch with. NEVER use neosporin, which I've heard people suggest to others. @rhanford: If your plugs are falling out, it's time to go up a size.
