In today’s world, many people like to undergo EAR STRETCHING, which is also called ear gauging. Ear stretching might seem like a grotesque practice, but it is not that awful as it seems, actually, it is pretty cool. Stretching the ear looks great, is versatile, and provides a cool body modification. Even if the whole ear stretching thing is all trendy and funky, it also involves a great number of risks which can be avoided if you all follow the below-given guidelines. Of all the guidelines present, the most important rule is remembering to be safe.
The Guidelines to Ear Stretching
Prior to ear stretching, you must pierce your ears in the traditional way. This can be done from any piercing shop. The ear jewellery we wear, are usually measured in ‘gauges’ that are typically about 20g-100g. But if the ears are pierced by a gun, then the gauges will be about 16g or 18g, and the best one to start ear stretching would be 14g. Before beginning with any kind of EAR STRETCHING, you should make sure that your original piercing has healed completely. So, the perfect time to do ear stretching is after 4 to 6 months of the original piercing.
There are various types of ear stretching jewellery that you will have to select from before the process begins. Some of them are – tapers, tunnels or eyelets, plugs, etc. Tapers are the main tools that are used for the ear stretching process. This tool should be replaced in a few hours with normal ear jewellery as these tools are not meant for longer usage. The reason is that these tapers are heavy and can tear the tissue of ears. Tunnels or eyelets are open tools that are meant for longer usage. Plugs are solid tools that are also meant for longer usage.
