 Ear Gauging?

Hello, Im getting my ears pierced soon. I’m planning on gauging them up to a 1/2 inch after they heal up. I’ve been reading up on how to do it,
Does anyone have any tips on how to get the new size in?


Im sorry if that doesnt make sense.

Ok. first things first. It’s called stretching, not guaging. Guage is a measurement, not a verb.(not trying to sound harsh).


To get the next size in, you use a taper. It starts small(fitting into whatever the current size is) and slowly gets bigger as you push it in causing the hole to stretch. Make sure to use lube so it slides in nice and easy. I use neosporn without pain reliever(not sure if that matters).

I waited 2-3 weeks between each stretch and am at a 1/2inch in both ears.

This has tons of info too.
