Welcome to the Body Jewellery Shop Ear Stretching Guide 101! This series of posts will discuss the different methods, jewellery, styles and risks of ear stretching, as well as showing you how to stretch your ears in a safe and healthy way.
Ear stretching is an ancient art practiced by many different cultures with a long history. It is a fascinating area of body modification and one that actually changes the shape of your body – it’s easy to see why it was and is so popular. It is relatively easy to do and can have a big impact on the way you look, but conversely there are plenty of ways to stretch your ears incorrectly, leading to some of the common risks of ear stretching. Fortunately most of the pitfalls can be remedied with a little information and simply taking care to work with your body.

Ear stretching is a huge subject and everyone has their own opinions about how it should be done, but I hope to give you all the information to make your own decisions about how to stretch your ears. We’ll be talking about some of the common questions and misconceptions that people have about ear stretching, how to deal with ear stretching risks and even how to hide your stretchings at work. I would love to hear your thoughts on ear stretching, so if you have a question about ear stretching or there is something that you want to know more about, let us know!
