Reviewer: A viewer from Pensacola, FL US

These guys help a tremendous amount. Seriously... I went from an 8 to a 2 in no time with them. It's way less painful when using these than it is to just straight up shove a new tunnel or w/e in your ear. If you're unsure about whether to get them or not... trust me, your best bet is to get them; It can save you on a lot of pain and a throbbing ear. <3

Big help!

Reviewer: A viewer from Fresno, CA US

These came in so handy when I was stretching my ears. The first few times I stretched, I didn't use a taper, and it was a BIG mistake. It hurt and took a while to get the jewelery through. But with the tapers, it was a lot less painful. Actually, not much pain at all, and it's a nice clean stretch. I'm at 1/2 inch now, with no problems.

Simple + Great

Reviewer: A viewer from England

This is the way to stretch your ears!
Go up gradually, 1 size at a time. Don't go any faster or you can damage your ear. I wouldn't recommend going up a size more than every two weeks. sterilize with salt water before use and you shouldn't have a problem. hurts slightly, not excessively. If it bleeds you've done it wrong!
