    I wear size 10 tapers specifically.

    But i won't go any bigger because 10 is the largest you can go and still wear regular earrings normally, and without anything in my ear, it still looks like a regular earrings piercing.

    Yes over time with larger sizes you can still heal, but you need to be young, and i like my transition to be immediate, and not wait months for my hole to shrink.

    I'm currently at 8, only going up to 6. So, I'm almost there! People tend to stretch just for the sake of stretching, which is kind of ridiculous. I've taken about a year to get here, waiting a month or two between stretches. With 6, I'll be able to wear some nice plugs, but still take them out when I'm older. I'm proud of my patience. :)

    currently rocking 7/16ths. probably going to 5/8ths at the most. but right now i'm happy with these. everytime i get to a new size, it just makes me want to go bigger. the only thing keeping me here is lack of money to buy new tapers. (:

    I'm taking baby steps as I speak. I'm taking my second set of piercings up to 16 from a 20 (standard earwire), and once I have that completed I'd like to take my first set up to 14.

    I think 14 is a nice enough size for me; it's not too big of a difference but at the same time it's big enough to allow for a happy medium. I've seen some really beautiful and creative 14g earrings up for sale that don't look too conspicuous but at the same time look really great.

    i just stretched to 1/2 today. best thing i ever did. jobs are changing. slowly but surely. more and more jobs are becoming open for the body mod community. that being said im quite alright with stretching. but if you do stretch, go big. unless you have connected earlobes. then a 4 or a 2 is probably your limit. stretch slowly as well.

    i've stretched to a 4g after saying i wouldn't go above a 10g. it just seems everytime i go up a size, i think,"wow this is small" and i wanna go up higher. the only thing keeping me back now is lack of money to buy new tapers ;D

    i wear size 00, but i plan to go to over half a inch. i feel that if anyone is going to stretch out there ears, dont do the lame thing, and stop at ten, or eight, or even two. whenever i talk to people who stretch out there ears to those sizes and stop, i feel like there posers. either go up ALOT or dont do it at all

    just so i can give my opinion in right now i got a 0 and im planning to go to a 00. when i did my ears they were a size 20. i gauged them out to a 14 then a 10 in about 2 months time. then i went to a 10 to a 6 in 1 week. then a 6 to a 2 in 2 weeks. then a 2 to a 0 in 3 months cuz my ears got sore so i waited tell i knew they were healed. what im trying to say is take your time they don't need to be 00 right off the bat. iv been gauging for a year now and im still not to a 00 yet cuz i know my ears not ready yet. so take your time don't rush things. thanks for reading and good luck. for Q n As email me at ember405@ yaho. o.co.m just not all the spaces and dots

    I just got my size 10 gauges in.
    I plan to go to either a zero or a double zero.
    I wouldn't go any bigger than that because they might not stretch back.
