The process that allows you to wear plug type jewelery is stretching.

I first put in thick bar bells for about a week, then I moved up to a size 2 taper and it hurt quite a bit. Then to a 4 taper, a blunt stretch to 5 taper to 6 and another stretch to 7. I kinda stopped after than point.

It’s personal choice though really, I wanted to go slow so I would be able to stretch back. You could most likely start at a bit bigger than 2 but that’s what I would go for.

I think it looks like the ears of a Buddha statue when you overdo it. Not that pretty in my opinion.

I wear a size 14 gauge in my first three sets, and in the top of my ear, and a 16 in the last set on the bottom, I personally don’t like the look of over stretched holes… I won’t wear over a 14 gauge..

Well, standard piercing studs are 16 for ears, 16-14 for everywhere else…. So if you have not touched your piercings for stretching, then they are more than likely 16-14. And the lower the number, the bigger the hole.

Hmmm wondering if anyone could enlighten me…

I’m currently writing my 4th essay piece of the day and my head is starting to hurt haha!

Basically I’m writing about succession in the Roman Empire and my questions are..

What do you call the way we hand down power in England, in the Royal family? I know there’s a system and you have to abdicate if you don’t want to be monarch and you’re next in line. So is there a name for this kind of system? I’m getting the feeling there is but as I said, im getting tired and stupid ;D
And along the same lines is there a name for the kind of system where the title of emperor is passed down based on money/senate aproval/mob support? Pretty specific but there you go.

Does anyone else study the Roman Republic and Empire by any chance?

Thought I’d just put this here as the topics closed.

That ‘pictures’ thread wasn’t actually for posting pictures it was about childhood books if I am correct, it didn’t really need to be closed, just a name change at the most?
