What should I use to make good tapers for my ears?? That would be cheap?And easy of course lol
Idk polymer or resin is what I have always used but their pricy
If you're using polymer or resin, you will have to coat them with a very high-grade, skin-safe varnish, otherwise you could suffer blowouts, rashes, rejection, or infection. You NEVER want to use an artificial material to stretch your ears. I made that mistake once and my lobes swelled up, started bleeding, and were oozing pus until I took the acrylic tapers out and put in stone plugs in their places.
I've only ever used stone and steel plugs since then whenever I wanted to stretch, and I never go up more than 1/16 of an inch at a time. If you're looking to stretch your ears, wait at least 3 or 4 months between sizes so your ears stay healthier and look better. If you stretch too quickly, your lobe tissue can become permanently scarred.
Surgical stainless steel, titanium, natural stone, and wood are the safest materials for your ears. Using anything else could damage your skin or increase your chance of getting cat butt.
www.piercedfish.com is my favorite place for ear jewelry, and the prices are fair and shipping is cheap.
I've been at 9/16 of an inch for about three years now, so I could easily go up to 5/8 at any time with no pain. But, 9/16 seems to be a magic size for me Always stick with a size that's really comfortable. Don't keep going up and up and up because you think it looks cool on someone else or if you want to impress someone.
Sorry for the lecture... I've just seen a LOT of people ruin their ears by being impatient or using cheap materials.
I like to use snake ribs. They're a very gentle taper and as your holes get bigger, you can just move up the snake for bigger ribs!
despite the fact that you have a pair i made ( i did coat them in a skin safe coating )
They are safe for healed piercings. But, when you stretch your ears, the skin tears little by little so the holes can get bigger. Metals and stones are the smoothest materials, so they resist bacteria as the bacteria won't have any small scratches to live in. The smoother and harder the material you use for stretching, the cleaner the holes are going to be as they tear and get bigger.
