Sometimes bigger is better

IAM:Twosteps sent in this shot of himself the other day, and unless I’m missing something it looks like he’s managed to stretch all of his piercings above the neck.

I know that the concept of “bigger is better” has been discussed on ModBlog recently, but in the case of Twosteps here, he shows off that for him, bigger is definitely better.  When it comes to stretching out any piercing, there’s a degree of commitment made towards an eventual goal.  I use the term commitment because the act of stretching is a long and involved process.  Of course it can be sped up at points with the assistance of a skilled practitioner, but over time there is only so much outside assistance one can get.  In the end it takes both mental and physical commitment to the goal for it to be realized.  So in addition to the time it takes to stretch something out, there is also the need for patience, because we all know what can happen if a stretching is rushed.

Thankfully for Twosteps here, it looks like everything is going well on his part.  I don’t know if he’s done with everything or not, but the matching jewelry, combined with the placementof the piercings, really make the big piercings look great on him.

  1. I love this, they look so good. I’m going for the same thing, well not exactly but with the stretching anyhow, with mine. I’ve gotten the last two pierced bigger, a 10g and 8g in my nostrils and upper ear cartilage respectfully. Have a few more planned, and can’t wait!

    Rob, your very right about the commitment it takes, and I had a run in with a piercer around my area that tried vehemently to persuade me to just get it punched out if you wanted it big, and to not mess with stretching. But I told him that there is something that comes with stretching that makes it that much better. For some reason, probably because of how strongly he felt about it, he couldn’t see my side of it at all. Just thought I’d share that, I like to tell stories hahaha

  2. i am planning to stretch my septum to me a 2g, i have all the stretchers but a 10g, i know stretching a septum can be a little more difficult due to the tissue. but once i get my 10g i am ready to go.

  4. i find stretching a mental progression that is more satisfying then punching which cuts a part of your body away, where placement is crucial u only have one chance at a proper placement. a small piercing can heal or close up and can the placement can be fixed.

  5. how does one get the septum that big? is it naturally stretched or are there tools used to cut the cartilage?

  6. not photoshopped at all. 100% real. i personally know this mofo. also check out his band By The Beard of Zeus.
