I had 3 holes on the lobes of each of my ears.  I haven’t worn earrings in the last 2 holes for years now but they are still visible.  I don’t know if the holes ever completely heal up.

That’s a lot of earrings, girl! I can barely manage to remember to put on one pair:-]] Take care of those holes so they heal up nicely! It’s going to be a big change for you, I’m sure. You’ll be reaching for those earrings for a while!

Oh girl, that’s not bad! I was expecting you to have eyebrow rings, and lip rings and all sorts of things after reading your post! LOL Wink

I got my eyebrow pierced in my senior year of high school (’99) and took it out about 5 years ago. You can still see the hole!! At least you girls with holes still showing in yours ears can hide those pretty well! LOL

Funny too, because sometimes people that I’ve known for years finally notice the hole and it really freaks them out. Especially at my very corporate job! haha

Wow lady! I have a belly one, but the idea of taking it out makes me feel like i’ll have  “wound” in my belly. Guess that one will stay until I’m preggers! is there anything special to do to help heal those holes?

I got rid of my nose and cartilage, but kept my reg ears and that little inner part that sticks out from your head into your ear? Your second pic has one right above it. But, it is so weird when you take them out!!!! Glad I did now though, and don’t think i’d ever put them back!

I let my 2nd and 3rd holes in my ears close up a few years ago when I graduated college.  There just didn’t seem to be a point anymore.

Word to the wise for women (like myself) who have belly button piercings.  Unless you let your piercing eventually grow/fall out, you WILL have a scar no matter what.   My friend took hers out years ago and still has a scar.

I’m leaving mine in until it falls out eventually.  But I have tattoos and such so that’s not so strange for me ;o)

Rosiegirl: That’s called your tragus. 

Firemanslady: I totally know what you mean….when I finally took out my ‘crazy’ piercings a few years ago I felt like I was finally letting go of the rebellious 18 year old who got them all….it was a relief, but for the longest time I felt kind of sad about it because they had been such a part of who I was for a long time. 

The funniest part:  my husband (fiance at the time) had loved the nipple piercings, but when I took them out he was like ‘normal nipples are so much better’ hahaha.  If he had told me that from the get go I would have taken those pain in the @ss things out LONG before I did!!

Yeah those piercings aren’t that bad but congrats on de-metaling yourself. 😉

I have taken out my nose ring, tongue ring, and belly button ring in the last 4 years or so.

And hotchild is right, the longer you have your belly ring in, the less it’s going to heal/close up. I had mine in for about 8 years and I took it out about 2 years ago but the hole as never closed up. 😛

I still have my crazy side ear piercing, lol. They’re teeny tiny 1/6 carat diamonds though….i’m still feeling a lil rebellious

@Hotchild, how long does it take for a naval piercing to naturally grow its way out? Mine’s definitely grown crooked over the years

@EJS: I think it’s different for individual people.  Mine is starting to look really thin…so maybe a couple more years…?  I’ve had it in for 6 already.

Hm, interesting. I’ve had mine for 4 years….I definitely wasn’t planning on keeping it after i had a baby or anything (you know, those stretcher plastic inserts). I just figured it’d be a thing of my past to remind me of my “i’m gonna do it!” stage =]

@hotchild: Mine was in for 8 and that’s why I took it out, it was getting so thin I was afraid that the next time it got caught on a sweater or something, it wouldn’t be there anymore.

@hcritton, ew, that made me shiver a little uncomfortably at the idea of it tearing out.
