Well a little. I'm going to get my ears pierced to an 18g. A couple questions. 1. We have a two week break from baseball practice and I feel the ideal time is to pierce my lobe now. After the two week break will I be able to take the ring out for 1.5-2 hours for practice? Or would I be better off putting a bandaid over them? 2. Well...actually I don't have any more questions.
