Today I started streching my 3rd lobe from 1,6mm (14g) to 2mm (12g). I used a crescent taper this time as well and I definitely prefer that method over streching with a straight taper and then putting a tunnel in. So now all 3 of my right lobe piercings are streched, the 1st is currently at 4mm and the 2nd and 3rd are both at 2mm, for now anyway ;)
A few days ago I decided to strech again, from 3mm (8g) to 4mm (6g). This time I used a crescent taper that I can leave in my ear instead of putting a tunnel in right away, which seems to work better for me. I really like seeing my lobe piercing gradually get bigger and I'm definitely not going to stop yet (my goal size is 6mm). I also stretched my 2nd lobe for the first time from 1,6mm (14g) to 2mm (12g).
Surprise surprise, today I stretched from 2,5mm (10g) to 3mm (8g)! I planned to wait longer but when I removed my 2,5mm tunnel to clean it I put my 3mm taper through the hole just to see how far it would go and it slid right through to the end without any resistance whatsoever. So what could I do, I just put in my new 3mm tunnel instead of the 2,5mm one! :)
This is my very first stretch of my right ear lobe piercing. I was already at 2mm (12g) before starting to stretch so today I went up to 2,5mm (10g). Putting the taper through wasn't much of a problem at all but getting the tunnel in was a little bit tricky since the jewelry has threads to screw the back onto, but I took my time and eventually managed to gently push it through.
A while ago I decided to try stretching for the first time ever so I bought some stuff for that online and today they finally arrived! :D First I bought 9 steel tapers up to 00g (10mm more exactly). My goal size for my first stretch, which will be my right lobe, is 6mm (2g) but I bought all the taper sizes they had anyway in case I ever want to go bigger. Then I bought some plain black steel tunnels for each size and also some more fancy ones for my goal size 6mm. Can't wait to wear them! :)
This is my right ear so far, 3 lobes and 2 helixes (but I plan on getting more). Like in the photo I usually have a BCR through my 2nd and 3rd lobe like an orbital piercing. Also, I've never been quite happy with the placement of my 3 lobe piercings in this ear, they're much lower than my left ear, but I've had them for so long and haven't bothered to redo them so I just live with it.
New helix (the blue one with the star) "completing" my row of piercings around the ear. Also did an outer conch at the same time (the plain metal ball), first time I've done any other piercing that lobes and helixes. Both done on Jun.
