Stretchies!

Advantages: It looks awesome
Disadvantages: It can have serious consequences

Ear stretching/gauging is when you stretch your ear lobes past it's general size of 18g-20g piercings; ones that you can get at any piercing spot. Self explanatory right? Though it sounds simple it isn't anywhere near it. If you don't do this right, it ca ...

Review of Members Advice On Ear Stretching

Seeing the world through your ear...literally!

Advantages: looks great
Disadvantages: incy bit painful

You're probably thinking what an earth ear stretching is, right? Well, its not as extreme as it sounds…an existing ear lobe piercing that is gradually stretched to the wanted size. Some may say it looks disgusting or odd but generally it's only ever done ...

Review of Members Advice On Ear Stretching

My take on them

Advantages: They're beautiful, individuality
Disadvantages: the pain, the smell (only during the process though, they don't stay smelly)

Well, where do I start? As an outcast teen with many piercings, 4 of which are stretched (2 to an obcene size), I get quite a lot of grief off 'normal' people. A lot of judging off people who don't know me. I think do whatever the hell you want! Don't ju ...
