How long will it take a recently-pierced ear to close up?
I just got my ears double pierced, and one side is higher than the other. Normally, it wouldn’t be a problem, I’m sure, but I’m thinking of getting a third pair right above the second. There’s probably not enough room for a third piercing on the higher side without touching cartilage so I’m thinking of taking the earring out and letting the hole close back up before getting it re-pierced. I just got them done today. If I took the earring out now, how long should I wait before trying to pierce the area again?
