double flares!

I only wear double flare.
I like them because I never have to worry about losing my plugs or the o-rings. I've been at 5/8" for 15 years and I still haven't lost a single plug yet!

i dont like double flares very much just becuz i had a bad experience with em and i was bleedin alot. I do love double flare tunnels, where the end just screws off.

I love double flares. I wore the same pair for 6 years until one day one of them, amazingly, fell out. Just got my replacement pair today.

try vitamin e massages and tug on your lobes to stretch out the skin. Also try takin them out after a little while while you're in the shower after the hot waters been on for a while. I noticed that helped me when trying to take out plugs
The sound of gun fire so loud and rapid, but it seems to be so quiet around me, and out of nowhere I feel peace cover me. I reach down and reload my ticket home. The taste of cold steel on my lips, and a second later silence fills the January air...

I'm at 8g and wearing my first tunnel, it's so tiny and cute haha. But I ordered new plugs, tunnels (some double flared too) and pinchers to stretch further.

But I'm afraid you can't get them out, what I read on the internet is that it is better to put some 'normal' tunnels in before you go to sleep right? and massage your lobes often with jojoba oil or vitamin e oil, and you should tug on your ear more often so you can take the double flared plugs out? Just wondering C:

What is about the smallest guage you can effectively wear a double flare? I wasn't planning on going huge, but want to be able to wear double flare things.
