Hello, I got my ears pierced exactly 3 weeks and a day ago. I have an 18 in both ears. I have some gauges a 14 and a 12 and all the way down to 4. would it be a safe jump from 18 to 12 or do i have to go to 14? and how long do i have to wait to change them?
#2
yes you can jump from 18 to 12, I have NO peircings but all two of my good friends do, they're ears are gauged below zero. but yeah you can stretch your ears like that in one shot, I wouldn't try going from 18 to 8 or 10.

I don't understand gauges in my honest opinion they're disgusting and I'm automatically turned away by anyone who has them. Why not just pour some corrosive acid on to your ears? Sure it might hurt more but it would be faster and then you can have the nasty holes you so badly desire.

Im not going big, and its what i want, I dont give a **** about what you want, I dont aim to please. especially on UG, dude ill be me you be you, you can have your opinion, just dont critisize mine.

Im imagining that acid wouldn't give the same perfect symetrical holes that a ear plug would give you.

I don't understand the guages really, like 12 to a 4 to -2 ect?

Whats it meant by? couldn't it just be set out from little guages of 1 to big holes like 20?

You're stretching out your earlobes, there's no way NOT to **** them up bad.

I can't wait to see everyone with gauged ears when they're 40 and have these massive holes in their eearlobes.

Yeah, they'll probably have beer bellies too.
Chances are they'll look like this.

Randoms on the street can stfu, to children everything is new anyway, get a spouse that digs it, your parents are hopefully dead by then and win the lottery.

You should stretch, then wait at least two weeks, then go up...if you really want to go up supa fast, go get dermal punches, or get it pierced bigger to start. Jumping too far up in too quickly hurts like crazy, and can rip your earlobes if you arent careful. The easiest way to stretch is to do it after a hot shower with a pair of taper or pinchers. You should use a water based lubricant such as KY, then slide in the tapers. You have to leave it in for like a week to let you ear become accustomed to it before changing jewelry. I was by the lady at Tattoo Inferno who did mine (I started at a 12g) that i needed to wait at least 6 weeks before starting to go up. Then 2 weeks in between each sizing up. Now as for how the guage system works, its fairly easy here are the meausurements for guages up to 0O, after that you measure in inches

18 Ga : 1.0mm

16 Ga : 1.2mm

14 Ga : 1.6mm

12 Ga : 2.0mm

10 Ga : 2.4mm

8 Ga : 3 mm

6 Ga : 4 mm

4 Ga : 5 mm

2 Ga : 6 mm

0 Ga : 8 mm

00 Ga : 10 mm

He's not criticising your. He's stating his.

Nowhere in his post does he make any reference to you.

ok, to answer your question (unlike other @$$holes on here) you can prolly do it but i wouldnt recomend it. especially if you have small earlobes. go from that 18 and force a 14 through it then go to a 12 then prolly an 8 and stop. thats what im doing. the way to do it is. put 2 18 through then put in a 14 in about a week put in 2 14's then 2 12's to an 8 or a 10.

Somebody clearly missed the fact that I highlighted the bit where he said "unlike the other assholes on here", and that I was mocking him by pointing out the fact that the person who posted the very first reply on this thread answered the TS question.

Okay, using that conversion up there^

I went from normal pierce 18

18-12-4-0 (which is where I am now at an 8)

18-12 hurt the worse (the first initial stretch)
12-14 didnt hurt at all, almost slid right in
4-0 hurt abit more than 12-14, but nowhere near 18-12

I went from a normal pierce to my 0 gauge/8mm in around a month.

I wouldn't jump more than a couple sizes at a time. The tear next to my hole says so.

Yes, you can jump 2 gauges when its small...once u start getting bigger than 6's DONT skip a size...i doubt you would though...just going up one size hurts pretty bad once ur bigger than 6's :P

To all idiots:
If you dont like gauged ears then dont post in this thread.
