Avoid Using Tapers as Jewelry

Why You Shouldn't Use Tapers as Jewelry

If you're considering wearing tapers in your ears for an extended period, it's time to rethink your choice. Tapers are essential tools for stretching your lobes, but they are not designed to be worn as jewelry.

Tapers have a distinctive shape – long and heavier on one side than the other. This uneven distribution of weight can lead to problems in your lobes over time, such as blowouts and damage. It's crucial to understand that tapers serve the purpose of aiding in the stretching process and guiding in plugs or tunnels.

The Right Way to Use Tapers

Once you've successfully guided the taper through your lobe, don't leave it there. Immediately insert your chosen jewelry into your stretched lobes. If your lobes are ready for the next size, the entire process, including taper insertion and jewelry placement, should only take a few minutes.

However, if your lobes aren't prepared for stretching, resist the temptation to leave the taper in your ear. Instead, remove it, reinsert your old jewelry, and give your lobes a few weeks before attempting to stretch again.

Key Takeaways

  • Tapers are not meant for long-term wear as jewelry.
  • Uneven weight distribution can lead to blowouts and damage.
  • Use tapers as tools for stretching, not as decorative items.
  • Insert your chosen jewelry immediately after guiding the taper through.
  • Patience is key – only stretch if your lobes are ready.
