I stupidly got my earlobes pierced by a friend using a sewing needle, and cheap earrings. I had to take them out due to how i was working at a fire department at the time. I had only had the piercings for about 3 weeks so they closed up. I would like to get them redone, but am wondering if this is alright? when i give a little squeeze on my earlobe i can feel the scar tissue i think that is inside. Will it be alright for them to re-pierce it? Also, about how much does an earlobe piercing cost per ear and do i tip the person who does it? What kind of jewelry would be best to wear while it heals, and about how much would it cost? Im a guy iff that changes anything. Sorry this is all very new to me, and just dont want to be like a total noob when i go into the shop.
