So I recently started stretching a few weeks ago. I started from a regular peircing to a 12g, I didnt use tapers, i bought acrilyc pinchers (i think there called). I left them in for a good 2.5 weeks and went to 8g spirals today which are also acrylic, (yes i know i jumped sizes, they had no 10gs and said id be fine... everything went smoothly, no problems. but im never risking a jump again.)
Basicly, my questions are;
Are tapers nessisary for the type of jewlery i use (Pincher, Spirals) or just plugs?
Whats best for your ears? Acrylic, wood, sylicone.. ect?
(I cant do steel, my ears reject. learned that with studs
Also. For care of your ears, what do you suggest? cause with my 12's i took them out after a solid week, washed the jewlery (there was little ear cheese, but it doesnt happen to me unless i play with them) and just rubbed antibactirial soap around my lobes. Is that enough, or should i be doing more?
Sorry for all the questions
