Before you move on to the next stretch, it’s best to wait for at least a month between stretches but ideally you should wait for 6-8 weeks. The main rule here is the longer you wait between the stretches, the healthier your lobes will remain and the more viable they will be for the bigger gauges.

Can I stretch my ears every 2 weeks?
You should never attempt a new stretch again though until your ears are completely healed from the previous one; one to two months is a good rule of thumb. Many people find this waiting period to be annoying as they want to be at ‘x’ gauge as soon as possible.
How long do I wait to stretch my ear again?
It is recommended that you wait at least 6 weeks in between stretches. This will give your earlobes time to heal up and become a little loose. However, we recommend that you wait 2-6 months between each stretch.
How often can I stretch my ears?
Stretching your ears can take months or years, depending on how large you want them to be. During this time, your ear will be sensitive. However, they should never be painful or stressed. A good rule of thumb is to go up one gauge size every four to six weeks.
Is it bad to stretch your ears every week?
It’s highly recommended to wait at least a full month between each stretch and to never skip sizes, so your ears will have minimal chances for long term damage.
What size gauge is between 0 and 00?
To avoid damaging the ear lobe, it is necessary to use “half sizes” to keep the stretches at one millimeter increments. The half size between 2g and 0g is 7mm, also known as 1g. The half size between 0g and 00g is 9mm and is occasionally called 00g.
Do you leave tapers in your ear?
They are only for wearing in healed stretches as jewelry because they are porous and can carry too much bacteria. In general, tapers are only recommended for wearing in smaller gauges as jewelry. Large gauge tapers will pull the ear unevenly because of the heavy side of the taper.
Can stretched ears go back to normal?
If you stretch your lobe to 00g or smaller, you are a much better candidate for your ear going back to “normal”. If you stretched your ear a year ago or a few months ago, your ear has a much better chance of shrinking back to its original size than if it has been stretched and fully healed for several years.
How long after stretching can I wear silicone?
Stretch with surgical stainless steel or glass, then insert silicone tunnels when the stretch is fully healed. Healing after a stretch usually takes one to two weeks. Never insert jewelry into your body that another person has worn, no matter how well you know the person or how clean the jewelry seems.
Should my ears hurt after stretching?

Why do gauged ears smell?
Why does this happen? Your body secretes a substance called sebum, sebum is an oily secretion which helps your skin keep lubricated and keep it waterproof. The sebum mixes with the dead skin cells between your ear and the jewellery to make this unpleasant odour.
What are ear spacers?
What are ear spacers? Ear spacers are cylindrical pieces of jewellery that fit snugly into larger diameter body piercings. Fake spacer earrings refer to traditional piercings that only imitate the look of smaller sized ear spacers.
