I know a lot of people will probably say stretching is a permanent thing, but cut me some slack!
I went up to a 2G and it took a while, never blew out my ear or anything. Had the 2s in for about a year and now I'm trying to downsize to a normal piercing size because I have to get a job as a teacher soon. Currently I have a 6g in and the skin has tightened around it and I am planning on going to an 8 soon.
So, my question is: does anyone know from personal experience the likelyhood of my ears going to a normal piercing, or of some tips to help close them? I have heard about things like using fine sandpaper to irritate the skin and help them close, but I have also heard it will only create scar tissue. Other than that I have really only heard of massaging the lobes with oil or hemorrhoid cream (cause the vitamin e) to tighten the skin and help them close. I don't want to resort to surgery, but I have heard if they are very small it is possible to have a piercer close them some way?
I appreciate any and all legitimate advice! thank you!
