    Ring around new earlobe punch

    Today I removed the o-rings from my plugs for the first time since getting them punched at 3mm and stretched to 4mm on Dec. 21st. I just took them off to rinse off the buildup in the shower. Before I put them back on I got my husband to check the backs and he found this on the back of the left lobe. He says he's pretty sure it's fluid-filled. The right lobe looks totally normal.

    This photo is going to be gigantic but I want it to be easy to see so, sorry! Any idea what this is, whether it will go away on its own, or what I should do if anything? I emailed the photo to my piercer with the same questions but figured more input can't hurt. Thanks all!

    This is it. This is literally it. This is the sort of thing people do when they're having a good time.

    You know what, it's a healing wound and punching and tapering is kind of traumatic. There is nothing to worry about or "solve". If this happens in 3 months, then you should think about what's going on.

    Thanks to you both I was pretty sure it was "normal" (as in, happens to a lot of people) but thought I would post it up and get some opinions anyway.

    I heard back from my piercer within a couple of hours and she explained that because we had to adjust the placement slightly on this one, it is probably some of the old scar tissue just pushed to the side. She said it doesn't look like it's an issue and just to let it do its thing.

    Love this forum <3

    It looks all right to me, too! I'd keep an eye on it, but I wouldn't be too worried.

    Just an update, for those who are curious and for, you know, posterity and whatnot. Huge picture is huge, and forgive the dry skin and blah blah. It's day 14 of healing.

    your lobe looks better, but what's up with where your ear attaches to your head? it looks like a patch of eczema... or a weird camera issue.

    Intensely dry skin from being in a much drier climate for two weeks. I'm back in Bergen now so all should right itself within a couple of days.
