i have 6 gauge flesh tunnels, that i have had for 3 years. my current gauge is now 00, but i have second holes at 10 gauge that i want to stretch. has anyone had any problems with taking their old jewellery to a piercing shop and getting them to autoclave it, and then stretch your ear with it? cause i have. metamorphasis seems reluctant too, and if they won't, are there any that will for sure? i dont understand the problem of using sterile jewellery to stretch a piercing, except for the fact that the shop wants to make more money off of their product.
