In this guide I will tell you how to properly gauge your ears quickly without fucking them up.
in order to do this you'll need
Money - To buy the following items
Tapers - You'll want to buy sizes 12g-10g-8g-6g-4g-2g-0g
the g stands for gauge, as you won't be keeping the jewelery in for a long time, you won't need to buy any tunnels or plugs unless you decide to stay at one of the following sizes mentioned above.
Medicated Lotion Soap - To make the taper slide in easily and not blow your ear.
As I'm assuming that you already have your ears pierced, that is most likely a size 16, you can easily go from a 16 to a 12. Now what you'll need to do is moisturize the piercing that you're about to gauge with the lotion soap, now that its all slick, you can start pushing the taper in, you feel any resistance and that the skin is just pushing outward at the other side, the STOP, because if you keep on going you're going to blow your ear out. What you'll need to do is while you're pushing the taper in, pushing your ear from the back with another finger, that way its getting gauged without pushing the skin outward. Also you won't have to put any real strength into it. Once the taper is in place put the rubber loops on each side, so that it doesn't fall out.
Wait about 2weeks before going down another size
You can just wait about 1 week from 10g-6g but be careful while doing so.
