I think I started stretching my earlobes back in 2006, I didn't plan on stretching them too big... I just wanted to wear cooler earrings lol.
I tend to look online at all of the different colors and designs.. then I just fall in love with them over and over :]
I'm at a 2g. That was my stopping point, but my left ear is really stretchie and somehow stretched to a 0g.
These things in the photo above are called "tapers" its what you should use when stretching your ears. You should only go one size up, wait for your ears to heal which will be at least 1 month, and then move up again.
I ordered some amazing earrings from this lady named Ashleigh, she customizes them and shes got a nice selection in her online store too http://www.etsy.com/shop/bakedbyash
I got these from her, but I got them in my favorite color: MINT GREEN with gold :]
it's a very small one, but it hurtssss
