Use the tapers to help insert larger gauge jewelry for an almost painless stretching experience. For easier insertion, lube the taper up with a water-based lubricant such as KY Jelly.

Q: What is the procedure for stretching my ears?
A: It's best to relax your ear lobes with hot water or in the shower before stretching. Apply a lubricant such as Neosporin, KY Jelly or Vitamin E oil to the taper. Take a deep breath and slowly insert the taper until the level end is in your hole. Then take the plug and butt it up against the end of the taper and slowly push the taper through with the plug. Your plug should now be in and you can attach your o-ring/s. The stretching will probably sting, but it should not cause a lot of pain. Wash the area daily with soap and try not to touch it throughout the day to prevent infection.
Q: How long do I need to wait between stretching?
A: Refer to the following chart for approximate times. Keep in mind everyone is different and you do not want to go faster than your body will allow.
