    Greetings everyone,

    Of my piercings I have an ampallang and I am interested in stretching to a bigger gauge.

    I have emailed a few piercers to find out if they have the jewelry I will need but it really just seems like no one is interested as they just keep ignoring my emails.

    Do any of you know a piercer near Alexandria, VA that won’t ignore me?

    Thank you all!

    How’s it going? It seems you might just try sizing up yourself. I did my own PA to a 0. I’m not real far from you and could not find anyone near me to do it either. It wasn’t bad doing it.

    Good luck!

    Thank you! First of all I want to compliment you on your piercings, they look pretty awesome together. What are those two top ones called?

    You know I thought about stretching myself like you recommended but there was a little too much pressure when I was trying it but I may have to just do it!

    I did do my own Jacob’s Ladder; I pierced myself 6 times.

    Do you have any recommendations on how to make the stretching more comfortable?

    Well thanks! The 2 on top are called dydos.

    If you did your own ladder streaching should be no problem. Just go up one size at a time. I find It easier just out of the shower.

    That’s awesome you did your own….
