When stretching your ears, are they supposed to bruise?

One of my ears is really bruised and the other isn't, I am at a size 0 and it hasn't done this before so that is why I am asking?.

Size 0 is not my pant size, it's the stretcher size... eye rolling

@charlotsomtimes  yes I just went up in size, do you know if the bruisin common or am I going too fast?

  • Why are you stretching your ears??? What does your pants size have to do with your ears ?? LOL Anyway,they have a good blood supply so if you do it too hard, yes they can bruise..

  • Hahaha, gottcha.. I don't know anything about those.. Call the place where you got them done or the new size and ask.. They have lots of people doing it so they would know :)

  • You could be going up in size too fast, which could lead to bruising and permanent scar tissue, which leads to problems stretching further. Also, what do you use to stretch? Vitamin E Oil is best :o)
