-breaks into a cold sweat-

I had my septum pierced last month at 12g, with the aim of stretching up someday... "Someday" may have just gotten pushed further into the future.

If it helps any, every time I've stretched my septum it's hurt less than getting pierced. It does feel sore for a while but not like MBM describes. So could just be luck of the draw.

It hurt because it was still fairly fresh and then met my dog's skull - the stretch itself was only briefly uncomfortable.

would teardrop shape be out of the question?

Nope! I don't think I've ever seen teardrops for septums- all of the teardrops I've seen have been thick. Any recommendations? I just need a few basics. I might want a gem on one but that's about it.

Mars and Mrs. Badmouth, I'm completely comforted. Thank you.

Septum healing nicely. My eagerness for pretty septum jewelry is matched only by my reluctance to inflict pain on myself by stretching... I asked my piercer about it, and he suggested I do it myself. I like his DIY attitude, though I may still get a pro to do it for me.

I just ordered 1.6mm/14g and 2mm/12g rings for my ears! I'm not aiming to wear plugs or tunnels, but I like how thicker rings look. I've been wearing regular earrings since I got my ears pierced four years ago, but lately I'm a little tired of them (and have been without most of the time). Last week I put in the 1.2mm rings I got pierced with. I had been meaning to just lube my lobes and push the next size ring in, but after reading this thread I'm wondering if I need the taper thingies?

if they're seamless rings or otherwise not nice and rounded like the tips of captive ball rings, i would absolutely not take the chance. owie!

Yeah, if they have threads of any kind it's not going to feel good even if it's a small stretch.

When I was at this sizing, I definitely had no problems just tossing in an upsize. It's different for everyone! You could just give it a wee try and if it feels too difficult then you know you might need tapers.

They're captive ball rings. I'm going to try it, like Mars said.

I had no trouble sizing up to 14's and 12's without tapers back in the day. This was like 12 years ago and I was a silly youngster, but I didn't use any lubricant or anything and I don't remember it being painful. I guess everyone's skin elasticity is going to be a little different though.

Remember also that it is recommended to wait at least six weeks between stretches. This allows time to heal and damage caused by the previous stretch and should make it easier to get the next larger size in.

SC and I are talking about threaded jewelry, like horseshoes where you screw on the balls. The threads will tear your ear i you're trying to stretch with them.

yeah, and seamless rings are cut flat, so it could very easily grab on to the flesh and tear it right on through.

I'm definitely going to take it slow! Since it stung a bit to put the 1.2mm rings in, I'm going to wait another couple of weeks before I attempt 1.6. I got my rings today, love how they look! I have titanium rings in now, but I like steel better, so shiny!

I went from a 14g to a 10g (with 12g in between) very easily. I'm guessing it's because my lobes were stretched out already from years of dangling earrings.

Looking at jewelry online is a great way to make your goal gauge grow bigger and bigger...

Agreed! And I didn't realize what a big investment body jewelry could be. I may be buying stretchers, ring openers and closers, jewelry...

I got my gold septum piece last night! It's so pretty and delicate. The only drawback is that it's not staying perfectly centered right now as it's a 16g and I think the last jewelry I had in there was 14g or 12g, so it's still a little stretched out. Plus my nose is a little crooked so there's that too. But I love it and I'm going to keep it in!

Yep, this. I haven't worn earrings in a long while, and I think at my largest I was still only a 10g or an 8g, but even when I was at 14g or 12g I favored larger rings and helixes, and I think the weight just stretched them out anyway, and it was really no trouble at all to stretch them one size up.

I really like stone jewellery, but I've heard a lot about how problematic the stone industry is, and the health costs to its workers. Does anyone know how to find ethically produced stone stuff?

You certainly may! https://www.etsy.com/shop/aprilsblissed She's based in Bend, OR, and makes the prettiest stuff.

All of her rings can be ordered for left/right nostril or septum, and you can customize both the gauge and the internal diameter. Aces!
