So I just got my ears pierced with an 8 gauge needle the other day and I was later told that my ears may never heal up completely because the piercing was too big to start with. I think that sucks...So I was hoping some one could tell me if this is true or not. Also, does anyone know if I just took out the jewelry, would my ears just heal up totally? Or maybe I could just put in 18 gauge jewelry and my ears will heal to that size? Please, someone give me hope.
