Posted:Sorry to be the bearer of bad news - but there is really no way to do it quickly. If you try to force it, your lobe will rip, which is not only extremely painful, but exceptionally unattractive. Ice will do nothing for you on this - the cold makes the cells in your skin contract. While it may numb the pain, it will hinder the ability to stretch. Depending on what gauge you are at now will depend on how far you can stretch it in one go... i.e., the bigger it gets, the faster you can go. If you are starting with a standard piercing hole, you should probably try to get up to 14 ga. first (1.2mm) and when that stops being "tight" or sore, move up to 12 ga. (2 mm). In my experience getting to 12 ga was the hardest part, and took about a month to heal. After that the jump to 10 ga. (2.4 mm) and subsequently 8 ga. (3.2 mm) then 6 ga. (4 mm) went rather quickly. You didn't mention your final goal, but my total time to get up to 18 mm was about a year and a half. My advice, take it slow.

Posted:Oh, almost forgot - heat will help you get where you want to go. Your lobes will be nice and stretchy after a hot shower. Also using an antibiotic ointment for lubrication will help!

Posted:If you don't want to have to buy lots of pieces of jewellery to get the different gauges (expensive), buy a taper- a piece that is thin at one end and thick at the other, often curved like a talon. Little rubber O-rings each side of your flesh stop it falling out, and each time it becomes comfortable (over a couple of weeks), push it through a bit more. I'm explaining it badly, sorry... try here:
