I've been stretching my ear since June and this was the first time i went to the next size.
Before it was pierced
I was at 14 now im at a 12 (the smaller the number the bigger the Gauge), the plan is to get big enough to put the tip of my pinky through it.
I'll keep you posted :)
**and if your wondering about the post title, sizing up involves slowly sliding a Taper (a metal stick that gradually widens) with an earring on the back, through my ear, Until the earring goes in.
It also involves LOTS of lube (A & D ointment)
