Ear Tunnels

Ear Tunnels

Ear tunnels, sometimes known as flesh tunnel ear piercings are a form of body modification that involves stretching the ear lobes wider than a traditional ear piercing. Then decorative jewelry called plugs and tunnels are placed in the gap.

Usually starting at a size 16 or 14 gauge, ears are stretched via a specially developed taper that is inserted into the healed ear piercing. About six weeks after each stretch, it is safe to stretch again. Stretching the ears slowly and in a clean environment is the best way to ensure the health of the lobes, avoid taring and unnecessary pain.  Ear stretching has surged in popularity in recent years.

What materials are ear tunnel products available in?

The material of your ear tunnel will likely depend on where you are in the healing process, or how sensitive your ears are. For some, the squishy material of silicone ear tunnels are their first choice before they experiment with metal options which are a little less forgiving.

We have both silicone ear tunnels and wooden ear tunnels which tend to be the most popular. But if you’re looking for something more durable and fancy, we also have options like steel, rose gold, and traditional gold. For those who prefer a more natural jewelry type, we also have stone tunnels like amethyst, rose quartz, and opal ear tunnels.

Our ear tunnels are all available in the sizes mentioned for any of our materials but it’s really important to know if you have any material allergies. So you can find the right jewelry for you that isn’t going to aggravate your stretched lobes.

How do I put tunnels in my ears?

Firstly ensure you're using the correct size tunnel for your ear. The best time to insert tunnels is after a shower. You should lubricate your ears with a small amount of Jojoba Oil. Tunnels are best inserted at an angle with one edge first. Some people call this the button method, as it can be similar to pushing a button into a button hole.

Can you use Silicone tunnels to stretch your ears?

It is not advised to use silicone tunnels to stretch your ears. You should not try to jump sizes by inserting a larger tunnel. Instead use an insertion pin/ taper to increase your size before inserting the tunnel.
