How To Stretch Your Ears | The World’s Best Ear Stretching Guide

ear stretching isn't rocket science...

The process of stretching your ears is simple, pain-free and one of the easiest (and coolest) body modifications you can do. Honest. There is nothing difficult about it.

Camp 1. “Screw this, I’m just going to ram something in my ear and see what happens.”

Camp 2. “OMG! Look at that blowout, I think I’ll give this a miss.”

Stretch It Body Jewellery has put together this complete gauging, ear stretching, flesh plugging (whatever you want to call it, we really don’t care) guide to help you stretch your ears confidently, properly and most of all safely.
