Ear stretching originated from tribes in Africa, Eurasia, and other indigenous lands. It was practiced for cultural, religious, and traditional purposes. Today, it is a body modification to show individuality and stretched lobes is more of a fashion statement.
Step 1: Caution!
Before Stretching, it is important to remember that the larger you stretch, the least likely your ear hole will return to its normal size or even close up. There is a "point of no return" which is said to be between 0g, and 2g. This number can vary between different people significantly, because everyone's skin structure and elasticity is different. THIS IS A COMMITMENT! If you go too large, or your ears do not close up, the only way to get your ears to their old shape would be to get them sewn up and fixed by a plastic surgeon.
