has anyone had there ears re-pierced after they've healed up?

Not ears but I had my nose re-pierced in the summer. I had it done in the same place. It hurts more than the first time. As the lady told me after she'd done it grin

I have - 3 weeks ago!

I had it done with a needle this time and it was so much better - less painful afterwards, not crusty at all. Highly recommend it smile

I've had my ears pierced and re- pierced so many times I've lost count. They've just found another space on the ear lobe and re-done them. I've been to Claire's and they were v good.

Are your old holes not very obvious Cuddledup?

I would like to have mine re-positioned as they were never quite even.......

and they are a bit gristly round the holes cos they took ages to heal...eeek!

No - one of mine was through the old healed up hole and one was in a slightly different position.

Neither hurt more than the other, you can't se the old hole on the repositioned one, and due to the sharpness of the needle it hurt less, went through far more easily and looks lovely and neat.

They looked and felt like completely healed piercings after a week!

Cardoon - if the old holes are a bit gristly definitely get them done with needles - you don't get that smile
