INFORMATION

INTERESTED IN STRETCHING YOUR PIERCING? 

IF YOU HAVE A PIERCING(S) THAT YOU’RE CURIOUS ABOUT STRETCHING WE ARE HERE TO HELP! A COMMON PIERCING CLIENTS LIKE TO STRETCH ARE EAR LOBE PIERCINGS BUT THERE ARE OTHER PIERCINGS THAT CAN BE STRETCHED AS WELL. RATHER YOU’VE TRIED STRETCHING YOUR PIERCING PREVIOUSLY OR ARE NEW TO THE CONCEPT WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU ON YOUR STRETCHING JOURNEY!

SO WHAT’S THE PROCESS?

WHEN IT COMES TO STRETCHING YOUR PIERCING PATIENCE IS KEY! FIRST QUESTION IS HOW OLD IS THE PIERCING YOU’RE WANTING TO STRETCH? WE’D LIKE TO BE SURE THIS IS A WELL HEALED AND HEALTH PIERCING BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY STRETCHING.

WHEN STRETCHING SOMETIMES WE WILL USE TOOLS SUCH AS A TAPER AND SOMETIMES WE WILL DO WHATS CALLED A NATURAL STRETCH. WHEN USING A TOOL OR NATURALLY STRETCHING WE WILL NEVER FORCE THE STRETCH. IF THERE IS TOO MUCH RESISTANCE THAT MEANS YOUR BODY IS NOT READY TO HAVE THIS PIERCING GO UP IN SIZE AND WE MUST WAIT. 

THERE ARE CERTAIN MATERIALS WE WILL STRETCH WITH MAJORITY OF THE TIME IT WILL BE EITHER GLASS, IMPLANT GRADE TITANIUM OR NON-PORUS STONE. IF WE ARE STRETCHING WITH GLASS OR STONE WE WILL USE A SINGLE FLAIR PLUG, WITH TITANIUM THE JEWELRY DEPENDS ON THE PIERCING WE ARE STRETCHING UP.
