its worth doing as long as you take care of them.
started when i was 13 simple dead stretch from a 16 to a 2 gauge,
then at 14 went to a 0 -> 00 -> 1/2” and now that im 16
im thinking of going to 3/4 inch
also stretched my cartilage ( DEADSTRETCHED )
which i DO NOT RECCOMEND AT ALL, went from a 16 to a 4
in one shot, but it was pierced through the thickest part
so none of the tunnels were long enough,
so i let it heal and side note : you arnt supposed to stretch your cartilage at all because of what its made of. but im silly and pain doesnt bother me.
and then dermal punched the other side of my cartilage to a 2.
