my ears to a 0 gauge. my question is if I have to take out the jewelry for up to 8 hours will it slow my stretching process and I will have to keep tapering it or will the jewelry just pop back in after 8 hours??? thank you
While stretching, you won't be able to just pop in the jewelry. Once healed, you may be able to. Some people experience quick shrinkage, but others don't experience shrinkage as quick. I know if my plugs fall out during the night, I sometimes have to push the plugs back in, depending on when they fell out. In generally, once healed it shouldn't be a major concern. While healing, you may or may not experience some irritation.
