I recently started routinely tugging with T-tapes and I'm having some circulation problems. After I attach the tape to my penis, I then fold it into a triangular shape, somewhat like a cone, tapered at the top and no folding where tape attaches to the penis. However, when I do this sometimes some tape folds near the penis and so my skin folds on itself. This is giving me some circulation problems so my solution was to use a small 2" metal rod and roll the top of the tape over it and clamp the rod to the waist band. This way there'd be no folding of the tape but still apply equal tension all around. But now I'm still having circulation problems because the top and bottom of my penis are somewhat folded when tape's applied and tied around my waist. By folded I mean since the tape goes flat against my body the bottom and top of the tape are folded kind of like (), and those points lose circulation and sometimes it gets pretty irritating and I can't keep the tape on for more than an hour. I've also tried loosening the band to decrease tension and now I'm tugging with barely any tension and yet I still have this problem. Has anyone else had similar problems? If anyone has any suggestions I'd be grateful.

While I have not had this problem, it sounds like you are trying to get a btter grip on th tape essentially, so I do have some suggestions.
I ust t-tape strips. This is just like t-tape except the tape is not in a continuous tube, rather there are gaps between the 3 tape "flaps". I insert a silicon cylinder to creat the tension, and then fasten the tape ends over the cylinder. that is the background information.
In order to fasten the tape ends, when I was using a stiffer tape, I needed to have more grip than, the bare tape ends. So I embedded small plastic beads inside the tape. Since I assembled each t-tape strip as I put it on, it was easy to do this by putting a bead between the two layer of tape. However, it woul have been easy enough to simply add an additional piece of tape over the end of the flap, embedding the bead underneath.
You could do much the same with standard t-tapes, I think. Either construct 3 flaps that extend beyond the t-tape cylinder, or, just apply more tape over the end of the t-ape. I would suggest the 3 strip extensions, as that sounds a bit easier to me.
For additional thickness, you have a number of choices. I used 1/4 inch beads, because I had them around, and I was using a twist tie to secure the strips. But you could also simply use a small rolled up section of tape, piece of a toothpick, etc. You could simply fold the tape a few times.
Hope these ideas help!
