Retainer/tapper

    I have a 10g septum piercing. I'd like to see a retainer that is a 10g on the ends and 8g in the center. Also different sizes to make stretching easier.

    The idea of a tapered septum retainer is a good one. I haven't heard of it before, but somebody might have one. The closest I have seen on PP is this.

    The ends are tapered so insertion should be easier. You can also get a set of tapers and use them to insert more standard retainers. It's too bad they don't sell acrylic retainers. You could taper the ends yourself.

    I looked at those. For some reason I am nervous about having glass in my nose. I keep getting punched, kicked or slapped there. Ultimately I would like to get up to a 6 or 4 gauge.

    I just approved your 3rd post. All future posts will go up immediately. Happy posting.

    I can appreciate that. My wife got me some glass jewelry for my nipples. I have only worn them once.

    as for your comment about more sizes for easier stretching, i've done that for a few people and myself as well. .5mm increments (only about .020") are a much easier stretch.
