Hey guys, I have a quick question about getting my ears re-pierced (they closed up completely after I removed my 6 gauge CBR’s a few years ago). Anyway, my piercer says that the biggest she’s willing to pierce my lobes is 8 gauge. However, she is willing to scalpel them. What’s the smallest size that you would recommend getting lobes scalpeled? Thank you for all your hard work!

The smallest I really scalpel lobes is maybe 8 or 9mm (0ga to 00ga) - anything smaller than that, I just pierce with a large-gauge needle (which I have up to 6mm, about 2ga), it’s kind of easier on everybody. However, I can’t believe that you had your lobes stretched to 6ga and they closed up completely! You seriously can’t get an 18ga taper through them, with a little massage and some patience? I’d stretch the holes you’ve already got before I made more scar tissue, if I were you.
