QUESTION: Hello, I started stretching my ears a while back and noticed one was kinda low but I ignored it. But recently I went from a 0g to to 00g I  am skeptical of doing my left ear because it look really thin. Do you think I can stretch it I will add photos. Your help is surely appreciated. I prefer not to downsize I want 00g in both if possible

ANSWER: It appears thin enough to split. Consider having a dermatologist close it for you, so that it may be pierced again to better match the other. Some professional piercers have experience with correcting a crooked or thinning piercing. Where are you located? Perhaps I can refer you to someone qualified.
