The Question Club
I'm beginning the long journey of stretching my earlobe piercings tonight. The first step is to cram some 14g posts in there, when they've spent over a decade with only little tiny standard ear ring sized posts (what is that, like 20 gauge?). But I've read up on this, so i know what to expect, i hope. I know it takes months, but i'm not trying to get them to popcan size.|
I can't even decide if i like the look of large-gauge earlobes. I think i'm just bored.
Anyhoo, i guess my question would be-
Is earlobe stretching too overdone at the moment?
Is it threatening to be in the near future?
I realize that when it comes to changing your body, you should just do whatever you want, and fuck the trends. But you may remember back in the late 90's EVERYONE seemed to be getting their tongue pierced, and it became absurd and annoying. Or it was to me anyway. Then the trend moved to nose rings, then navel rings, and if i liked them before, i surely hate them now.
And lets not even talk about Chinese/Japanese symbol tattoos.
p.s. it hurts it hurts oh god it hurts
also- should i do both ears the same size, or one larger than the other?
I can't decide.
