De-Mystifying The Stretching Process

Pictures

· Stretching is the slow process of placing larger size or gauge jewelry into a piercing and allowing the tissue's own elastic nature to accomodate progressively larger sizes. This process is primarily achieved through time and patience.

· An aid called a Taper Pin or stretcher is often employeed to help the stretching process. A taper pin is a conical shaped object that can vary from 2 inches to 6 inches in length, and are primarily crafted out of steel or acrylic. The taper pin starts at a slightly smaller size than your current size and gradually increases to the size you are stretching to. Most tapers have a concave end to adjoin to the jewelry such as captive bead rings, single flared eyelets, or plugs, some have threads to mate with threaded jewelry such as barbells. We offer several different Taper Kits with different jewelry options.

· We recommend to stretch one size at a time. We do not recommend skipping sizes. Often when sizes are skipped or the process is rushed the tissue can be damaged and cause "blowouts", tears or fissures that can lead to the developement of scar tissue, premature thinning of the skin around the piercing, or possibly cause rejection of the piercing. Your body is the best indicator of when it is time to stretch. Stretching when done properly it is most often completely painless and causes little swelling to the piercing and surrounding areas.

· Different piercings stretch at different rates. See below chart for approximate periods of time we recommend between stretches as well as a progression chart of sizes. This should be used as a guideline, but we also recommend using your body's response to the stretch as the real indicator. If you notice pain, persistent swelling, bleeding or prolonged redness to the area please immediatly downsize the jewelry to prevent damage to the tissue.

· In most cases as a piercing is stretched larger, the wait time between stretching is prolonged. Again, your body is the best indicator of when it is time to stretch a piercing. This is only a guideline.
