Can you make your ears whistle while riding? I just went up to 3/4 (probably my final size, they need to shrink back down some day) and I had a hard time getting anything out of them. Also feel free to post pics if you have some really sweet plugs/tunnels, or even any other body art... cheers.

just put a whistle inside your ears.

i have two's so it's not big enough, but you could probably work it with 3/4

I know a guy who had 3/4's and they looked pretty much like pierced holes. Not bad. Unfortunately that is not the case for all of us. My 00's look pretty tiny after about 5 minutes of being naked.

that's bc your 00s are pretty tiny. You start losing elasticity around 1/2s to 5/8s.

I don't think this thread warranted an attitude, SinVoz. It's safe to assume that a person with multiple well-cared for piercings and lobes that have taken years to properly reach to 3/4" knows they will never close. But they will certainly shrink back down to an acceptable size given a few months.

Saying 00s are tiny is also pretty snarky. If you stretch properly 00 is a fairly large size and will have taken months of patience to do properly, it certainly commandeers respect. So let's drop the 'tude, mmkay?

why don't you stop being so sensitive mr. proffesional ear stretcher. "A respectable size" is relative. Unless you are the exception, they will not shrink down to a "socially acceptable" size, ever. 00s is tiny. I didnt say it was a bad thing, I just said they were tiny to prove a point. 00s and 3/4 are very different. toughin up bud, its a rough world out there.

Do your nuts poke through? I am sure you can stretch the sack to accommodate much larger holes. You could be External Balls Man.

I was at 3/4 once. I haven't worn anything in several years, and the hole in my ears is still big enough to put a pen through. Probably at least a double zero still.

What happens when you take out the ring? Is it stretched forever?

Yep, once you get to a certain size they often look like droopy, blown-out anuses when you remove the plugs.

I'm at 1 9/16 in both my lobes, 7/16 in my septum, but I wear a plug and nobody even knows I have it, 00g in my cartilage and a 0g second hole in my lobe. I'm pretty holey. My septum makes a good party trick if theres a pen or AAA battery laying around
