How is that bad advice colleen? You do not need a parents permission to stretch your ears and alyx was just telling them where to buy tapers. Although I would reccomend buying from a shop. You may not agree with body modification of ears but it isn't against the law for a minor to do so.
You don't gauge your ears you stretch them. Stretching them professionally in a shop ? Yes you do. Buying pours acrylic tapers from the mall & doing it yourself ? Nope. If you do decide to do it yourself, look for stainless steel tapers, please for the sake of your lobes.
i think she meant bad advice because at MOST mall shops only sell acrylic or silicone tapers/stretching jewelry, which isn't good for your ears & they harbor bacteria. They don't really sell stainless steel or titanium.
sorry im kinda new to ear stretching, dont know the terminallogy very well yet. just know they look cute af and i want some. lol.
actually hot topic and spencers both sell steel. Stainless and surgical.
Nah. Just go buy 'em from Hot Topic.
Bad, bad, bad advice.
