I had my nipples pierced in November and used this to expand my nipples to 2.4mm. Perfect and straightforward to use. I'm ordering more to taking my piercings to the next level. The only small criticism would be it would be handy if the jewellery could screw into the end, but that's just a niggle.
Brilliant - first time I have used one and I stretched my PA from 4G to 2G really easily. I lubed up first and it pushed through effortlessly - the whole process of fitting the 2G BCR was completed in less than 5 minutes. Will definitely use to for fitting the 0G ring.

I found the pin to be well made and very smooth.
1 slight grumble was that the recess in the thick end is not quite deep enough, and its easy to misalign during jewelery insertion, I'd prefer to be able to screw the jewelery to the taper for an easier stretch.
I used this to stretch my tongue from 3.2mm to 4mm and then from 4mm to 5mm. Extremely recommended, with just a little lube it slips in ever so easily and very little pain. A must have if your a little mad and decide to stretch your tongue :)

WOW, have used plastic tapers before always found they hurt like hell. not been long at 4mm in my PA. So got this tapered pin to 5mm and took just 10 minutes to push through and now at 5mm. Highly recommended to use in a PA.

The best taper I've use so far, and don't think i'll be using any other, soo soo easy to slide threw your ear, and the concaved end makes inserting your plugs or eyelets without any problems, used the 10mm just ordered 12 mm :D

I love these. Shame they don't go bigger.

I love these. I wouldn't use anything else to stretch with now. I have ears that don't love to stretch more than 1mm at a time and I have used this at 7, 9, 10 and now 11mm. The 11mm was lovely and long to allow for a smooth stretch and I have had no problems at all. I wouldn't want to stretch with anything else. x

Absolutely the best, personally I consider concave steel tapers to be the safest and easiest to use.
Unlike most tapers these beauties are exponentially gradual, and with a little oil should go through super easily.
The concave end makes it easy to slip the appropriate jewellery into place.
I would defo recommend these to all stretchers, from novice to pro!

Just used the 00g taper yesterday to stretch my pa and as with previous tapers I've got from here they are excellent smooth and ideal for stretching :)

Been Stretching my septum with the crescents and up to 3.2mm was easy but going to 4mm was hellish so using tapers from now on as with more surface area to the stretch is more gradual and comfortable
Used your typical small steel tapers before these to stretch my septum and the jump just from 5-6mm was painful with them, bought one of these in 7mm and went from 5-7mm with ease, they increase so gradually and have such a nice finish, + paired with a rounded glass plug that fits snug in the concave at the end of these, it makes a painless, easy and perfect stretch. Highly recommended.

Ordered this when my septum wouldn't stretch from 4 to 5 mm just with a crescent. Because they are concave at the thickest end they fit extremely well with the rounded septum bullets!
Been using just crescents to stretch my septum earlier, and it has hurt like a bi'**h! With this I felt almost no pain, it just slid right trough, and the following septum bullet slid right in the stretched hole. 10/10!
This is the safest and most comfortuble way to stretch your piercing the smaller tapers in length can really hurt and damage the stretch because they are so short, but these do the trick great. very good quality steel.

These pins are excellent for the price; pure heavy duty steel to make you feel safe stretching and none of that plastic garbage. I used this to stretch my septum to 2.4mm from 2.0mm ... the pain was extremely rough for me but I have a very bad pain threshold so It probably wouldn't hurt others at all. I just bought another at 3.2mm to stretch my septum again, and looking forward to receiving it soon. Great item, brilliant price.

I used that taper to go from 10 mm to 11 mm (I tried to go from 10 to 12 with the help of an acrylic taper and it just wouldn't work).
But with that taper it's just SO easy and pain-free - even if it might look a bit scary and feel a bit heavy, I highly recommend that taper... ...and would definitely prefer it for doing the next step(s)!!!
Well, basically I got these because I tried to go 10-12...didnt work; then 10-11, and one lobe was still too tight. Bit heavy, but definitely recommended.
I've used these steel pins to stretch my lobes from 1.2mm to 9mm and my lip from 1.2mm to 1.6mm.
They are quite easy to use and I highly recommend them using vitamin e oil as a lubricant. The only downside is that not all pieces of jewellery fit into the end very easily.
Just went from 6mm segment ring to a 7mm "Tribal Dream Ring" with one of these tapers.
It was so easy, I slipped the taper through the outside of the PA hole, had the 7mm ring ready at the end of the pin. Voila, in with no pain (in fact it felt rather pleasant).
Soon I'll stretch to 10mm and I would recommend these pins for the job.
Tapered insertion pins are absolutely amazing. It's a safe and easy way to stretch your lobes. Just cleanse, lubricate and slide in! I personally leave them sitting there for 5-10 mins before attempting to push through with the jewellery inserted, just to calm down any inflamation.
Best used with internally threaded tunnels or smooth plugs!
These work well but lubricant is needed! I went from a 5mm to 6mm and there was no problems.
i just started stretching my ears , it was really easy and smooth, NO PAIN! :-)
Once you've tried these you'll NEVER want to use anything else to streatch your ear - I used them to go from a 6 to a 7 and 7 to an 8 and OMG I had NO PAIN at all! It's a bit weird because they're so long and heavy, but I had no pain whatsoever! Amazing!
help so much with stretching up. i usually do the initial stretch with a plastic taper, then once my ear has settled i use these to insert the tunnel. so quick and easy, and save on a lot of effort and pain! ive used them for 7mm, 8mm, 10mm and 12mm stretches, and very soon for a 14mm stretch!
I had my lobes stretched by my piercer up to 6mm, then i wanted to have ago myself, so got a 7mm pin, and tunnel, and went thro easy. Ive now stretched to 10mm and going to go larger, very easy to use and good value.
These products are awesome...
I've used them from 7mm and im currently at 12mm, since I have been using the insertion pins I've found it a lot easier and more appropiate as I im sure my work does not want me walking around with a taper hanging down my ear so these insertion pins which alow me to put a plug or flesh tunnell in straight away in alot more appropiate.
I did have a bit of trouble the first time I used them as when i messured the plug to the pin it didn't look the same size it looked smaller but not the less they both went through straight away and fit perfectly..
These may be a bit more expensive but well worth the money and alow you to stretch both ears at the same time!
I stretched with only these tapers and it was just SO easy the entire way through (from 12g to 4g), they are hygenic, easy to use (for stretching and getting your tunnels in) and they really just make the whole process of stretching your ears so much more comfortable and reliable, a must have!
Just stretched from 6mm to 7mm using one of these pins like i've done from 3.2mm upwards. Very easy to use and found them very helpful. Can strongly recomend them.
...very easly with this item (from 7mm to 8mm). Fantastic! It took 2 minutes without any pain. Only problem-i had to order some new jewellery... The next time it will be my nipple.
These pins are very reliable. My ears where at 6mms and i didnt like the plastic tapers i was using so i ordered a few of these and felt the difference straight away.
