    It seems like whenever I use plastic gauges my ears are so fucking slow to stretch, I've been at 00 for three weeks and theres hardly any noticeable difference from when I started... are there any methods for moving up i may not have considered, or should i just buy a heavier material for my jewelry?

    use heavier jewelry. that's what helped me stretch easily. If not metal, then glass.

    I used tunnels and then put little luggage locks through then to add weight.

    5/8s is definitely not the next step after 00
    from there i went to 7/16 then to 1/2 inch. youll wanna do 9/16 before 5/8.

    if you mean youre just working towards the final goal of 5/8s, and arent skipping steps, then just take your time. realize that as you increase from each gauge-measured size youre going up a different amount each time, and that diameter measurement is multiplied by pi to give you how much the circumference needs to stretch. so a partial millimeter might not seem like much of an increase but realize the skin has to stretch over 3 times that.

    after a month is when i usually notice that my ears have considerably loosened up, usually enough for the next stretch. kaos silicone eyelets help the stretching process at higher sizes a huge amount, allowing a few hours for your ear to loosen up that last little bit before filling out the next size. rather than the acrylic insta-stretch.

    ah yeah, should have clarified that 5/8 is the end goal. thanks for the advice on the eyelets.

    wait about a month between sizes i would say, im only at 1/2 inch right now but thats because my girlfriend doesnt really want mine any bigger. Use a taper if you have to but only if you think it wont cause a blowout. Also im sure you know this but never wear a taper for longer than like 5 minutes or youll look like a noob.

    i'm about to start my ears at a 0 using glass jewelry (don't bitch about this because i have talked to a piercer who more than likely is better than yours as well as more respected). My goal is 5/8's. I am probably going to be at 5/8 by the end of about a year I hope. I just want to get to 5/8's so i can get the super blings by anatometal. I don't want to pay that much for something that I'm not going to wear as my final size.

    i typically use acrylic plugs as well because of the cost and how quickly they are replaced by bigger plugs. i notice myself constantly lightly tugging on the plugs while im in lecture or while sitting at my computer which i think makes a noticible difference when i go to the next size. i usually dont even consider stretching until i can pull the plug down without much force and there is a considerable gap between the plug and the inside of my lobe.

    that being said, i still had big problems when i went to half inch (self stretched with taper), and just recently when i stretched to 3/4 (at a shop). ill have to post up pictures of my half inch fiasco because it was NASTY.

    just improvise a bit and you can make some decent weights to wear around the house out of luggage locks or whatever. i think it is jojoba oil (or vitamin e oil?) massages once a day on your lobes will help with elasticity, making it easier to stretch, and overall lobe health and strength. look in to that.
