How to stretch your ears with tapers?

If you are looking for how to stretch your ears with tapers then it is important to note the most important thing that stretching your ears with tapers requires careful and gradual stretching to ensure the process is safe and minimizes the risk of injury.

Here are some general steps to follow if you don't know how to stretch your ears with tapers:
  • Wait until your earlobes are fully healed from any previous piercings or stretches. This typically takes several weeks or even months.
  • Clean your hands and the taper thoroughly with antibacterial soap or a piercing solution to ensure they are sanitized.
  • Apply a small amount of lubricant to the taper to make the insertion process smoother. You can use water-based lubricant or a piercing-specific lubricant.
  • Gently insert the small end of the taper into your earlobe piercing. Make sure to go slowly and stop if you feel any pain or resistance. If you encounter any difficulty, do not force the taper; consult a professional piercer for assistance.
  • Once the taper is inserted, you can leave it in place for a short period, such as a few minutes to an hour, to allow your earlobe to adjust to the stretch.
  • If you feel comfortable and there is no pain or discomfort, you can gradually push the taper through the earlobe until the larger end is flush with the back of your ear.
  • After the taper is fully inserted, you can replace it with a piece of jewelry specifically designed for stretched ears, such as a plug or tunnel. Make sure the jewelry is the same size as the larger end of the taper.
  • Clean your stretched earlobe and the jewelry regularly using a saline solution or a piercing aftercare solution to maintain proper hygiene and promote healing.

How to stretch your ears with tapers safely? It's important to always remember that stretching your ears should be done gradually, allowing enough time between each stretch for your earlobe to heal and adjust. Rushing the process or stretching too quickly can lead to complications, such as tearing or blowouts. It's recommended to consult with a professional piercer who can provide personalized guidance and ensure the process is done safely.
