Yes, it sounds like your ears were not ready for a 0g.
Stretching should never hurt. Not even a little.
I would suggest putting in jewelry that comfortably slides in and allowing your lobes plenty of time to heal and recover. Next time, take it slow and don’t let anybody stretch your ear with a taper. They’re meant to assist with inserting jewelry, not to make your hole bigger.

New faux rook and daith piercings by Ryan Ouellette. Precision Body Arts in Nashua, New Hampshire.
She liked the colors so much that we picked out new jewelry for her healed tragus, lobe, and helix piercings to match.
Corset piercings are relatively safe. One big thing to keep in mind is that corset piercings are temporary. They are not meant to be kept in for more than a few hours or days. They’re usually done for things like tattoo conventions or photoshoots. Each piercing is basically a shallow surface piercing, often done with an inexpensive ring. They’re really only meant to show off or snap a picture and then be removed before they have a chance to cause significant scarring.
Good looking people rocking our jewelry at the Mecca Suscon!!!
If its never irritated your ears before, sounds good to me.
Keeping your stretched lobes clean and massaging the tissue are both great way to ensure they stay healthy and happy.

Somebody asked for a #noshavenovember update. Eek lol
Anti-tragus piercings require very specific anatomy, so you’ll want to consult with a reputable piercer to be sure you’ve got enough cartilage for it to work out long term.
Straight vs curved jewelry will likely be determined based on your ears anatomy and the piercers preference.
Like all piercings, it is a split second pinch and then it is over. Don’t get yourself too worked up about it ;)
Best of luck!
Has anyone else noticed that the back on this new Flaming Bones septum piece is finished with a really pretty dimpled texture? My coworker came in today wearing her’s flipped around and it looks gorgeous! Does anyone else have the other designs at the shop right now? I’d love to know if any of the others are like this! #saintsabrinas #borneojoe #flamingbones #septum #bvla #gold #bodyjewelry #piercing #pearls (at Saint Sabrina’s)
My latest labret. From Mateo Way. Quickly becoming my favorite!
So, I’ve seen several tumblr posts from other piercers about buying quality jewelry and getting pierced at a reputable shop and I totally agree with them. I’ll admit my biases are very much the same as those authors: I’m a body piercer looking to pay my bills and, yes, who probably likes things…
