You'll love showing these off!

Getting an ear piercing for the first time can be pretty exciting. After all, there are a lot of placements you can consider, which just make it so tempting to get multiple piercings. But if you're not ready to go for advanced placements yet, especially if you have a low pain tolerance, the lobe is your best bet! Since it's a fleshy part of the ear, it's considered the least painful ear piercing.

How long does it take for lobe piercings to heal?

It typically takes six to eight weeks for a lobe piercing to heal. You can tell your piercing has healed when it's no longer tender to touch, it stops hurting, and the "crust" that forms around the pierced area has subsided. Once it's healed, though, there's still a chance that it can close in just a matter of days or hours. That said, don't take off your jewelry for an extended period of time, especially if your piercing is less than a year old.

How can I take care of my pierced ears?

  • Clean the area with a saline solution twice a day, every day.
  • Avoid touching your newly pierced earsthis will only delay the healing process!
  • Don't take off your earrings too soon. Before changing your jewelry, let your piercing fully heal to keep it from either closing or getting infected. 

How many piercings can I have on my lobes?

This will depend on your ear size, of course. Most people can fit up to four piercings on their lobes.


With that, here are 20 ear piercings to get for that "curated" look:
