Stretch your ears in eye-catching style with our new patterned acrylic ear stretchers. These stretching tools come in three graphic patterns that make a cool alternative to plain ear stretchers. They are made from high quality PMMA acrylic, a lightweight plastic that is non-irritating and feels very comfortable to wear. With their smooth finish, these ear stretchers slide gently through your piercing without dragging. They allow you to stretch at your own pace, slowly enough to allow your body to heal in between stretching. We also have a huge choice of other acrylic ear stretchers including plain black and ultra-bright UV colours.

New Spiral Acrylic Ear Stretchers

Our acrylic ear stretchers come in two styles: straight and spiral. Below you can see the three new spiral designs. Spiral ear stretchers are easy to handle and you gently rotate them through your ear. Their rounded shape looks really striking and won’t poke into your neck, as some straight tapers can. They make a big, bold statement and really show off your ear stretchings.

New Straight Acrylic Ear Stretchers

Below are our three new straight acrylic ear stretchers. They have a classic taper shape and come with two black O-rings to keep them in place. This shape is more compact and gives a more streamlined look. These ear stretchers have rounded points, so they are comfortable to wear and lie straight behind your ear. Simple but eye-catching, they are a classic choice for stretching your ears.

Acrylic ear stretchers are a cheap, comfortable and easy way to stretch your ears. Acrylic is a high quality plastic that is very light, durable and affordable. I have found acrylic ear stretchers to be very comfortable to use and you can even wear them as jewellery after you have stretched your ears. The main advantage of acrylic ear stretchers is how lightweight they are. Heavy stretchers can pull on your piercings but with acrylic, you’ll hardly feel them at all. This puts less stress on the piercing and gives it a better chance of healing quickly. It also makes them comfortable to wear while your ear is healing – even at night.

There are 3 main shapes of ear stretchers: spiral, crescent and straight. They are all used in the same way but some people find different shapes more comfortable. You can also choose the one you think looks best. At Body Jewellery Shop we have a great choice of acrylic ear stretchers in different colours, sizes and shapes.

Wooden Taper Pins

Wooden taper pins are only recommended for fully healed stretches, as wood is a porous material. Porous materials are not suitable for healing piercings or stretches, as they will absorb fluids and can harbour bacteria. Wooden taper pins can be worn as jewellery and look fantastic, with natural grain and colour, the stunning finish creates a very natural, traditional, tribal look and feel.
