Wow, don't do that. I mean your lobe just starts to heal, then you stretch it again. Thats how rips happen. Use lube, and put it in all at once. But DON'T use vaseline.

I stretch 2mm every month. But don't do that, I know it's too fast, but my ear heals pretty fast. I'm thinking of stopping at 8mm or 10mm.


Yeah, I wouldn't advise anyone else to use my stretching method.

Even harder with an anti-tragus haha.

I have loads of steroid cream, but it's extremly strong (for pretty bad eczema) so I don't dare use it.


And see you there too.


hey, I have pretty bad eczema, give me that $$$$.

I'm curious towards the whole lip piercing deal
like
does it interfere at all with daily like eg. eating, drinking etc
and i heard from someone that with mouth piercings you cant eat spicy food or else it stings
but i dunno if thats just until it heals, or if its forever?
I'm leaning towards the until it heals idea.. but some verification would be nice

any help would be sweet!

I don't think it stings if you eat spicy foods. I have a few friends that have one. We also have really spicy food down here and they've never complained.

Also, is anyone here good at tattoo designs? I know what I want, I just need someone to help me design it the way I would like it. It's the treble clef and bass clef. I don't want the standard looking one. I want a little added extra. For example, how the Opeth "O" has that nice design in it. I'm looking for something along those lines. If someone can help me out I would be eternally grateful.

Did you put a new needle in to an autoclave, wear gloves, use alchol swabs and than pierce your nose? No? They yeah, there's quite a chance it will get infected. But it's not that big a chance if you take care with the aftercare. Use sea salt soaks 2 or 3 times a day, and put on Savlon afterwards, you should be fine.

i have my ears pierced with 14 gauge and i'm not going any bigger because i don't want to have holes in my ears, the left ear i got done, and the right ear i did myself by shoving a starter stud through it


1. You're stupid for shoving a stud through your ear.
2. Read the first part of that sentence to yourself again. You already do have holes in your bloody ears...

I'm not a fan of sleeves or knuckle-tats, but it sounds pretty cool

I designed a few tattoos for myself a couple weeks ago, I may upload a picture of the first one I plan on getting soon, it's a bass clef and a treble clef making up the walls of a spade, with an inscribed bass/treble clef design in the center, I'm going to put it on my right forearm so it shows when I play and then I want this on my right shoulder/bicep area.

I'm also thinking of peircings, now I've never been much of a fan of peircings, but now I'm thinking about getting them to pierce my ears with 12 guages right off the back, would this be a bad idea? Basically I hate how small peircings look on guys, so if I could skip that stage entirely it'd be ace.

Yeah you can get them done that big, they'll be fine.

ok some stuff needs to be cleared up on here....getting your ears guaged is not as big of a deal as people make it out to be. you can make it up to a 0 Gauge (not sure what that is in mm) and as long as your ear didn't rip, it would make it back down to a normal sized hole...if you rip your ear though, than your screwed, so either get it done at at tat shop, or be really freakin careful not to go to fast. (i've got mine up to 00) Also if your gonna pierce your ears your self (i did it and they turned out fine) make sure you take the right precations...the best thing to do is to go to some beauty store (eg. sally's beauty supply) and buy the little one time use guns they have for like 6 bucks...that will give you a quick painless and straight peircing.. also sanatize EVERYTHING, the earing (or needle), the gun, your hands, your ear. and last take care of it afterwards...don't touch it without washing your hands, soak it in saltwater(promotes healing) or alcohol if you have to(disenfects but doesn't promote healing)and don't pierce anything other than your ears at home....please go to a tattoo shop.
Tattoos are amazing- I have 3 one of witch is a half sleeve on my left arm. but to the young kids out there who want them, make sure you get something good, and don't get so excited your getting a tattoo to the point where you don't care what it looks like. Also, you get what you pay for....if your getting a tat, please spend the money to go to a good artist...always check out their profiles before you get work done, and don't just go to one guy/girl and check them out. hit a few different shops. and remember, Tattoo artists are there to help you and have usually been doing it for years, if they say, "that is gonna look horrible", try to take that into consideration before you get it. ok, that is about it...hope this helps.

very nice pics digupherbones. What size plugs are they?


The one in that ear is 14mm, and I have a 12mm in the other. Should stretch my right to be the same soon but I don't have money for new 14mm plugs.

Woohoo, looking forward to my next tattoos... bass clef behind the ear, the Co&Ca keywork on my inside right elbow and I may have some of the lyrics to "Black" by Pearl Jam spiralling round my left calf


Bass clef behind the ear? inventive i guess! i was thinking of getting the Keywork on my arm before i got the Opeth logo, but i might get it on the other side tbh.

I don't have that many piercings... only 5.

And it depends on your pain level. It could be pretty damned painful or you could feel nothing at all. Most likely somewhere in between.

What about infection? That'd be a bitch. It's only thing that's really stopping me.

Haha, two you could fit it through (each ear).

As long as you don't touch, do sea salt soaks 2 or 3 times a day until it's healed and use some kind of anti-septic (I'd reccomend diluted tea-tree oil or savlon) it almost definatly won't get infected.

I have a few surface piercing related questions. I'm thinking of getting one on my chest but I'm worried about the scarring if it rejects. And do they really split that often? If I lose or gain weight would it be risky to it?

It will be a little swollen, just leave it alone for a bit is all I'll say. I can say that...

You could be allergic to the jewellery.
It may be getting infected, use Savlon or tea tree oil.
You may be being paranoid.
If you do sea salt soaks, get half a cup of boiled water and use only half a tea spoon of sea salt.

If you notice it rejecting then the best plan if you don't want scars is just taking it off and then using Vit. E oil to massage it.

No, they don't.

I don't think it would affect it that much, but you never know... I'd say ask BME's QOD unless anyone here knows more than me (though it's likely they do).

I feel confused about my piercings... I kind of really want to take them all out. Then I think I'll kill myself for doing such a stupid thing. Then I think I don't like them and then I think it all again.

I might need some help.

Honesty is good.

If you post a pic or something I might be able to answer you better. It can't be a mistake to use some teatree though... and keep your hands off it at all times minus when you're cleaning it for a couple of weeks.

surface piercing question:
chest piercings are nice, but (depending on where on your chest you plan on getting it) since theres not a lot of skin, and it's hard to get jewellery thats the perfect shape (you can get close), most of these piercings aren't permanent. The longest you can expect would be a year or two, they eventually decided they don't like it there (or you get hit in the chest by something) and they have to be removed.
but you can get a good while with it being healed and lookin cool before you have to get rid of it.
