I've stretched my ear lobe piercings up to 3/4" and want to wear double flare tunnels. About how long do I need to wait before I'll be able to put them in? (been about seven days so far)

Congratulations on the new shop Montana, best wishes for your success!

Thanks man, I appreciate it.... and to answer your question, the flare on a double flare will usually measure about one size up. This poses a conundrum as, the tissue will have to stretch temporarily up to that size, but then it would be allowed to relax. The problem is if you attempt this too early, tissue that was weakened by the previous stretch is extremely succeptable to tearing, especially with tunnels, as the edge is notorious for cutting. I would recommend about a month minimum, with 6 to 8 weeks being ideal.
