How to take care of gauge earrings?

If you think of stretching your ears to get gauges do it gradually and always let the hole heal completely before going for a bigger gauge. also only enlarge by 1 gauge at a time, anything more will hurt real bad and will take forever to heal. 

I have both my ears stretched to half an inch, this size can still close up in time also it's not big enough to make ur ear look weird. I always take the plugs out at night, so that my earlobes "jump" back to their natural size. if they get too used to the stretch, after a while u'll have to go to a bigger gauge unless u want to loose ur plugs. Also this lets your ears breathe, which is very important, cuz they do tend to get stinky :| 

I recommend u use silicone plugs, they are easy to put in, come in all sorts of colors, and it's less likely ur body doesn't tolerate them, like the metallic ones. i cant even wear titanium ones cuz my ears get all itchy. plastic, bone or wood also works nice. about the snake bites, they do leave a mark, but it's barely noticeable. ppl who dont know u had them will never notice and they do close up in anything from a few days to a few months time, depending on ur body and how long u had them. hope i helped and hope i'm not too late with the info!
