Yes. Your body has shown it has a tendency to develop keloid scars; it’s not like chicken pox.

Yes, some people have the predisposition to form keloid, you are more likely to develop a keloid on a cartilage piercing, inform your piercer of this and they will use a different type of ring during the initial healing period to lessen your chances of keloidling
