I don't recommend stretching more than one gauge size at a time, and that's from my own experience. Not unless you don't mind having piercing that are as sore and tender as when they were first brand-new.

As for cost, that's gonna depend on what the jewelry costs, and I don't think any of us can speak for your own shopping habits.

I agree with Rae on this one. One gauge at a time, especially with something like nipples, where mistakes and problems can cost the piercing completely.

As for price, it sort of depends on your piercer. If you're looking to save a buck, I'd look into buying your own jewelry online (making sure it can be autoclaved) and then seeing if your piercer will taper it through for you. That way, you pay less for the jewelry and only pay the piercer for his/her labor. My piercer does my tapering fairly cheaply (if she's not busy, she sometimes will even do it for free, but I have a really good relationship with her) if I bring in the jewelry and she only has to taper it.

Plus, if you buy the jewelry yourself, you can always see if the next higher size will fit without tapering before you go in to the piercer... Then you can let your nipple get used to the ten gauge while you look for jewelry in the next higher gauge.

You tell me that I sin.
You say I'm bound for hell.
So once your judgment condemns you
