It depends and varies from person to person for some people yes and for some people a big NO.
Before going for it again do consult a doctor instead of going to piercer again to ask whether you should go for it or not.
If the area is still infected so leave it for a while untill it get healed otherwise if you re-pierce it the infection may get even more worse and gets spread.
When ever it gets infected you may have to use medicines and its a bitter truth that a small infection of piercing can turn worse more quickly and you may encounter some serous problems.
If you go to a licensed piercer to do piercing of the same spot he would definetlty refuse you .
But there are proofs that many of my freinds have even done it twice or thrice but their situation was like once they did ear piercing it got closed quickly so they had to do several time but their piercing was not infected but keep onething in mind for the second time it will be bit difficult because the scar tissues are more tougher than normal skin tissues.
Before going for re-piercing you should keep these points in mind :
- If you are going to re-pierce the same spot make you sure you wait for almost three week so that it get healed properly.
- Before doing it make sure to check it maybe its open and it has got just a small cover.
- Make sure the area is not infected.
- Consult a doctor or a licensed piercer first before going to do ear piercing again.
- If you are a women make sure to check its not infected if you are going through pregnancy it can cause some serous stress.
What if i do it again will it heal the same way ?
Definitely, a Big No many of the people who did it for the second time on the same place they got complications and it took more time to heal. This is what an expert says about it
Secondly the new piercing will have a slower heal rate than before, scar will inhibit access of your own blood to the site and this will inevitably slow healing. It can also result in even more scar tissue including some unwanted scar lumps found commonly on irritated piercings. Usually these go away but I do see more of them on “re-pierced” piercings.
What if i want to get rid of ear piercing ?
Sometimes many of the people they get irritated with it and wants to close it. There is no rocket science in it, simply leave it and those holes will close themselves.
However those holes aren’t that much even people dont notice it but sometimes they can take almost three to four years to be normal so just wait and start loving them.
