Backpacking around South America

I hope this doesn't count as a travel post D:

But anyway, I'm toying with the idea of taking the fall semester off and backpack around South America for 3 months (Peru and surrounding countries, still need to figure out what I want to see). I have 8g lobes and assorted ear piercings. My lobes are small enough to go naked which I probably will do because I don't want to deal with jewelry on my trip especially that I'll be camping too and visiting the Amazon.

However, I kind of want to go bigger so if I do give into the temptation and stretch up, what kind of plugs should I bring? I'll most likely be a 6g then to allow lobes heal enough to be able to wear DFs (or just wear CBRs, tightly closed with the help of a piercer). And if you were going on a long trip like this, what would you do with your ears? I'm curious!
  • True. But if the OP can't / won't splurge on super high quality stainless steel, titanium is the next best (and least expensive) option.
    • Titanium is actually the best option in many cases, but it has become a pretty large misconception in the modification community that people are "allergic" or have "developed an allergy" to stainless steel, when it's really just a reaction to low/poor quality jewelry :)
