    Is there any other androids users who have stretched ears or other parts?

    I have 6mm (2g) stretched ear lobes

    I can wiggle my ears!
    But they have no holes, gaps, or stretched areas.
    I like how taper plugs look, but piercings just are not my thing.

    Haha cool

    I've had pierced ears since I was 2 yrs old so I have known no different. But up until 12 months ago, certain meds that I take I have developed a allergic reaction to sterling silver and gold. So I decided to stretch my ears so I could Atleast wear something in my ears again. I wear acrylic, glass and wood plugs and tunnels

    To each their own, but I don't get it. I keep picturing people when they're 80 year old grandparents with earlobes hanging down to their shoulders lol. At least a piercing will close up if you decide you don't like it anymore, but it takes surgery to fix stretched earlobes. That said, the smaller ones don't look bad, but I wonder what job interviewers think about it. I'd prefer any modifications to be able to be hidden. (i'm sure they look great on you, though:))

    You can go up to 8mm before there is no return. Up to 8mm if you decide that you don't want stretched ears take it out and it will shrink back to a normal sized earring home

    Ah, good to know. Not so bad if it's reversible.

    I have 2g holes, I'd like to go to 00, maybe a touch bigger. My wife doesn't care for it much, she hasn't told me not to do it though.

    One of my friends has 4 inch holes, they're far too big for my tastes but he wouldn't be him without them.

    I typically wear black bent barbels, but I also have flesh tunnels and simple plugs.

    I have 8-9mm lobes and when I need too be professional I wear a pair of rose quartz plugs that lay pretty flush against my lobes. Daily, though, I work in a casual environment. I had a coworker I've worked with for years comment the other day that she didn't know I had stretched lobes until I wore a pair of white tunnels. I typically wear solid glass or stone plugs that can pass for regular earrings.

    One of my pet peeves is when people say "Oh, you're stretching your ears?" when they see my lobes. No, I've STRETCHED them. If I go any bigger it'll be 10mm, but I have no plans on doing that in the forseeable future. It's like many people ONLY associate stretched lobes with kids who stretch to huge sizes without any regard for future consequence. I do it because I like wearing tiny rocks in my ears :).

    I have stretched lobes, but it has been so long that I don't remember what gauge they are....I am going to go up one more size though, and then stop, because I don't want them too big, but I bought the next size up over a year ago, and haven't put them in yet, because I need to get tapers in the matching size. Oddly enough I found a crazy Chinese dollar store by my house that has a nice selection of tapers, so I will probably get them tomorrow.

    Back in 2006 had one ear with a 0 in the lobe as well as a 10 and a 12...had a 14 in the cartilage...took them out after a car crash still have all the piercings but only the one that was a 0 could be used for anything beyond a 18 or a 20...

    I'm quite traditional when it comes to mutilation of the body. I think a piercing for an ear is pretty and elegant. Any more on the face and it's not classy.

    I remember when I was in my teens and I had girlfriends that wore REALLY heavy earrings that it stretch their ear piercing holes. When they didn't have earrings, I thought their ears were simply ugly. I promised myself that I won't damage my ears like that and have kept my earrings pretty light and simple.

    So, you can guess how mortified I was when I went to Uni and saw the kids with plugs the size of washers in their ears. I did not find it appealing that I was able to see though their earrings and their hair and skin at the back of the ears.

    I think the smaller ones aren't as bad but I see too many *coughs* kids with the big wholes in their ears.

    I don't have mine stretched, but I do like it on some people. I have to take my earrings out for work and keep a "clean" appearance.

    I have several piercings, but the largest is only a 8g (ears) I think.
