How to Stretch Earlobes

Earlobe stretching is the process that enlarges the earlobe with pieces of jewelry ranging from rings to plugs. The larger the stretch, the less likely your earlobes are to return to their normal size. If you decide to stretch your earlobes, make sure you can live with the result for the rest of your life.


1. Choose the jewelry you want to use to stretch your earlobes. You can use some that's
made with different gauges of wire or you can use plugs or tapers.  The gauge of
the wire in your jewelry measures the thickness of the piece.
Plugs just fill the holes in your earlobes, and tapers start small at the tip and gradually
become thicker along their length.
  1. 2. Clean your hands and earlobes well. Rub each earlobe with your fingers to warm it and make it easier to stretch. Place some lubricant on your earlobe to make insertion easier.
  2. 3. Insert the new wire into your earlobe piercing. Start with a gauge that's close in size to your original piercing. Go slowly so you don't cause too much pain or tear your skin. Repeat the process for your other earlobe.
  3. 4. Wash your earlobes well and often to keep them clean as they heal. Ensure that you also clean the jewelry and remove any crusty buildup to prevent infection. Wait at least 1 month to 6 weeks before you stretch your earlobes again.

  17. I know someone who did this to their ear about 6 years ago and he has giant scars in his earlobes now that will never go away. Exercise with caution

  18. I've always wanted an ear piercing, but quite frankly I don't think I could go through with making my earlobes larger.

    Perhaps down the road, but for now I'd be content with just a little stub on my left ear. Getting it as soon as I have the time.

    Deff saving this post for reference though, in case I ever decide to Obama-ize my ears.

    Much appreciated =D
