Hey everyone
 
My names noel and have been streching my ears for about 3 years but not constantly lol
 
I live in ireland and our weather sucks a load of ballocks when its cold my ears get really cold,i am worryed that if i strech and futher it will get worse
and maybe they will die off as the blood flow stops
 
i cover them when i am out with a scarf if its cold ..
i really want to go up a few more sizes
i am currently at just over 33 mm
 
i find wood retains heat better the steal so i use both now and again
 
does any one have this problem ?

i have 1 and 1/2 and i've only ben stretching mine for about 2 years. I usually use acrylic plugs, but i have to admit you do have a point in the steel and metal gauges.
Well im usually an asshole to people who just piss me off but im actually pretty laid back

I've had that problem. I live in Idaho, and last year I was stretching from 7/8 to 15/16.
I had the back of my ears get frostbite, which really sucked.
It took forever to heal.
I currently am up to 1 1/4, but I wear one of the hats with the flaps for ears and the rabbit fur on the inside.
I work about 10-12 hours outside in temps as cold as -20F and the hat keeps my ears warm.
I've noticed with me my steel eyelets keep more heat in them then solid acrylic. Prolly due to my ears having to heat the piece of acrylic.

Your better off with the wood or horn plugs,.If I were you I'd stick with those.At least during the cold season.
As far as continuing to stretch,I wouldn't worry about the weather damaging your lobes as long as you keep being smart about it.
I personally wear an "elmer fudd hat" when its real cold.Keeps the lobes all snuggly and warm and don't have to worry about the scarf slipping.
 
I had a friend with 38mm lobes and he lived in Alaska for 2 years with no problem.Although he did get one frostbitten this year while in Colorado.Went out with no hat...tsk,tsk.

Thanks. I love my "elmer fudd hat". I've had it for a year now and I'll probably have to get a new one cause I've worn it so much. xD!!

BAF is a good site, I also like Anotherhole.com. There's one other I look at but I don't have the site off the top of my head.
