How to Care for Stretch Piercings
On behalf of TVLesson.com, this is Noel Garcia from New Age Piercing.
Let’s talk a little bit about stretch piercings. In my case, my ear and my sub tongue is very stretched. This been a zero gauge. So it's a new year, it's always good to do it step by step, gauge by gauge. Please do not jump from a 10 gauge to a two gauge. That’s going to cause ripping in your ear. That’s going to cause stretching in your ear more than it's supposed to and at the end of the day, one day when you’ll get older you might want to shrink them down. It's not going to shrink all the way.
If you stretch all the way to look a two gauge, the day you want to remove your stretch ear piercings, you actually come by to look a nice 10 gauge. They will take 10, eight, even at 12. That’s for security that one day you can go back to normal if you like to.
Myself, I used to be inch and a quarter. I'm 41 now, so therefore I only wear zero gauges. I mean double zeros, sorry. My commitment is there in a particular—actually the whole was staying open pretty much for the rest of my life. It would shrink a little bit. So, always be secured what you want to do. Always use a solid stuff. Steel is good. Bone pierces are beautiful. Stone is very good and glass which is very nice and very clean. Stay away from acrylic. Stay away from dirty wood pieces that you get might find at a hardware store. So, always keep clean pieces. Those stretch ears if you use a bad jewelry, it tends to give away a very bad odor that it really smells really bad.
In a room, you can actually smell it through the whole room if you take it off. And that’s how you know you're wearing very cheap jewelry like acrylic. Acrylic back in the day was a biggest thing but it was the worst thing ever. They smells horrible. So keep your stretch clean, keep your stretch safe and at a good size, you can keep for the rest of your life if you want.
