One of the main concerns people have about stretching their ears is how noticeable stretched ears can be and how to hide stretched ears for work. There are ways to hide stretched ears, but I think it is important to be realistic – it is impossible to make your stretchings completely invisible, especially at larger sizes. There are however plenty of ways to make your stretched ears more discrete and less “offensive” to employers and judgmental family members. The most basic – and least popular – option is to limit the size of your ears. The simple fact is that small stretchings are easier to hide than large ones. In the end it is a balancing act – the size you would like vs. the practicalities of your job etc. When it comes to hiding your existing stretchings, having long hair is always an advantage! Simply wearing long hair down can go a long way towards hiding stretched ears, especially if people don’t know that you have them in the first place. However the best way to hide your stretchings is with discrete jewellery, as detailed below.
How To Hide Stretched Ears with Hider Plugs
Kaos Silicone Hider Plug
Hider plugs are flesh-coloured flesh plugs. They are designed to blend in with your ear lobes and make your stretchings more discrete. The most effective are Kaos Silicone Hider Plugs. They have a realistic skin colour and a tapering edge that helps them blend into the surrounding skin. Unfortunately they only come in one colour. If your skin tone is darker, your best bet is to look for other plugs that match your skin tone as closely as possible. Even if the hider plugs do not match your skin colour exactly, they can make your ears look much more discrete – especially from a distance.
How To Hide Stretched Ears with Flesh Plugs
If your stretchings are under 10mm, you may find that you can hide them simply by wearing plugs that look like stud earrings. By choosing a style that could conceivably be a regular stud, you can hide your stretchings quite easily. Remember, they might be obvious to someone familiar with stretched ears, but people often see what they expect to and may not notice your stretchings. The example on the right would probably not get a second glance from most people! For best results I recommend one of the jewelled plugs below or any solid, opaque flesh plug.

We all know how frustrating it is when your school objects to your stretchings but if they claim that your tunnels are not safe, you may be able to keep your stretchings by wearing silicone hider plugs. Some schools believe that flesh tunnels and plugs are not safe during sports and cite this as a reason that you have to remove your plugs.
In a way you can see what they mean â€“ although I think being injured because by your flesh tunnels is extremely unlikely! If you are playing contact sports like rugby or you were struck on the ear, your flesh plug would concentrate the impact on your jawbone/behind the ear. This could technically lead make the impact more serious or lead to injury. The chance of this happening is very small but schools are obliged to take all risks into account and may be afraid of angry parents who could blame the school for allowing you to wear flesh tunnels while playing sports. This might all sound rather unlikely but some schools do claim that stretching jewelled is dangerous. Thankfully you can eliminate this â€˜riskâ€™ by wearing silicone hider plugs.
If your school wants you to remove your jewellery on safety grounds I recommend researching silicone hider plugs and presenting your school with evidence that they are safe to wear. Hopefully they will allow you to keep your stretchings on the condition that you wear safe, discrete jewellery at school.
Discover a new level of comfort with Kaos Softwear silicone body jewellery. Kaos Softwear make a range of funky silicone flesh plugs, eyelets and flesh tunnels that are unlike anything else – they are soft and squishy instead of hard like regular tunnels.
Because they are so soft, Kaos Softwear tunnels can be folded for easy insertion and they are painless to put in. They are great for sleeping or wearing headgear because instead of pushing into your head they simply squash down. For me this is the main benefit of Kaos tunnels â€“ I like to wear big headphones with my iPod but when I do this with regular tunnels it gives me a headache. No such problem with the Kaos tunnels â€“ I wouldnâ€™t even know that Iâ€™m wearing them. The same rule applies if youâ€™re wearing a skate helmet, cycle helmet or if you have to wear protective headgear at work. In my experience Kaos silicone plugs are also a good compromise at work or school. Some employers and schools think that metal stretching jewellery is unsafe or unsightly, but soft, light Kaos tunnels are often more acceptable to them. Kaos also do a Silicone Hider Flesh Plug (see below) that will is ideal for school, work and family gatherings.
