I'm currently at 5/8" needlessly to say that my next size would be 3/4", is there any other sizes between the two? I've been doing some research and found out that 11/16" would be ideal for the next stretching process. I don't know what to do, I've tried taping but that's really too much work for me especially when the tape comes off and I really don't want my ears to be uneven.

Yeah, 5/8" to 3/4" is about a 3mm jump. You can find lots of in between sizes on
Here's an example of a pair of tunnels that comes in 5/8", 17mm, and 11/16":

If your ears are ready to stretch, at small jumps like that you probably won't even need tape or tapers. I haven't used tapers or tape since 4G.
I'm Lindsay.
I have 1/2" lobes and 11 piercings: left helix x2, both conches, both nostrils, septum, navel, and VCH.
My lobes are small but I know a lot about stretching and how to do it safely, so message me if you have any questions!
