If you’re new to ear weights or ear stretching, you need to start slow and with a lighter weight. Just like stretching, you can’t just jump into heavy ear weights or you risk damaging your lobes. Start by using light weights for a few hours, and switch out the weights with plugs if your lobes start getting sore. Let your lobes rest for a couple of days before you wear weights again. Once your lobes have rested, try wearing your weights again for a slightly longer period of time and repeat the process until you can wear weights for up to eight to 10 hours. Once you can wear light weights without any discomfort, you can increase the weight of your ear weights and repeat the process.
If at any point you feel pain, stop and switch out your weights with plugs. Weights are not meant to be worn the whole day, every day, especially with heavier weights. Rotate your weights out with plugs to help retain the shape of your stretched lobe. As we mentioned before, keeping them in for too long can cause your lobe to thin out the bottom or injure your piercings in other ways.

To make it easier to find what you need. We have split our ear weights by weight on our site. Each product will also include the minimum gauge size you need to be at to wear the weights and the weight of each piece. We understand that it can be hard to visualize how much a piece weighs, so we’ve made this handy chart that compares ear weights to other objects.
