Body modification, particularly ear lobe modification, takes a long time and a lot of patience. If you want to increase the diameter of the holes in your lobes, it requires several different ear stretching jewelry pieces and several months. However, if you are intent on doing this body modification, here is how to do it right.
With Healthy Pierced Ears That Have Been Pierced in a Tattoo/Piercing
tattoo/piercing parlor or body modification studio begins this
process with your lobes by first piercing the lobes with a surgical
steel piercing wand that is much wider in diameter than those
piercing staplers in boutique stores in a mall. This creates a larger
hole to start with. A surgical steel expander with hollow center is
inserted into the pierced hole right away. The holes have to heal
completely before taking the next step.
up to a Larger Piercing
the original holes are nearly healed, you can re-pierce them with a
larger piercing wand. You can also just stretch the hole over a
slightly larger ear stretching jewelry expander. If you pierce first,
then insert the expander that is two millimeters larger than the last
one you used. Continue this process until the holes are as big as you
want and fit around the size of stretching expander you want to wear.
You Have to Go Slowly
reason for the very gradual process is because ear lobes are rather
delicate tissue. If you move too fast and try to stretch them too
quickly, they tear. Take it slow.
