I don't wear ALL my lobe piercings anymore but I've had them for about 10-15 years.

I don't have piercings anywhere else.

When you guys got your ears pierced, how long did you keep your earrings in before you changed them? I think they recommended to keep them in for 6 weeks, but I'm wondering if anyone changed them before then.

i think 2~3 weeks is fine. the only problem with taking it out early is that when you take it out, it'll close really quickly, making it really difficult to put new ones in. also, it will still be a wound and since you don't know your way around the piercing yet you'll be poking around trying to find the exit. this will hurt like a bitch. well at least it did for me

I had my ears pierced a like 8 years ago. Had it done with a 12gauge needle with rings. Healed well, then I went on to stretch them. Took them out after 2 years and until a month ago had nothing in them. I just "re pierced" them... kinda. The holes were still there but it took a bit of forcing.

And the solution stuff is silly. Just keep them clean, wash your ears in the shower and don't touch a healing piercing with your fingers.

4 gauge and they closed up pretty much completely. It was hard to get these new 12 ga. ones in.

Although... I did "step down' when i took them out. Went fomr a 4-6-8- and I think at the 8ga. i took them out for good.

what he said, i tried to change one of my two lobe piercings out for a loop about a week in so it could heal to the curvature of the loop instead of the stud and just ended up hurting my ear like a bitch. just give it ample time to heal, you won't regret it - a month or two should suffice

and the link above about going to ardene's or claire's is true. it's not the fact that "it's just the lobe" so you shouldn't care. it's the fact that there's potential for many, MANY things to go wrong - HIV being one of them

it's not a risk you want to take. pay the extra bit of money if you're going to get it done, and get it done properly. it'll heal better, and you'll feel safer in the knowledge that your piercing isn't going to cause you a complete world of pain. my friend got his first lobe piercing done at claires, after which it got all infected and messed up. i did my first one the very next day at osmosis. within 2ish weeks it was completely healed, and as for my friend, he ended up having to remove the piercing he got done at claires because it got that infected, had to let it heal over and then went to osmosis to get it done right. total time that took him to let it heal back over and stuff, about 6 weeks - and then another 3 for the new piercing to heal. if you wouldn't get a tattoo in somebodys backyard, don't get a piercing done at the mall. in theory, it's the same thing - a needle going into your body. wouldn't you at least want that needle to be sterile?
