    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.

    I'd go with a bandaid rather than taking them out

    id go with a bigger size than 18. you should start off with at least a 14g

    And that would be perfectly safe without stretching my ears too much?

    Keep the stud/ring in for apart four weeks. I put a plaster over mine when I had to go to school. You don't need to keep them in for any longer than 4 weeks.

    dont take them out, stick with the bandaid and i agree 18 is way to small, if your that worried go no smaller than a 16, 14 would be best tho.

    Well, you shouldn't really be covering them. They tell you when you get them done, not to cover them with a band-aid. But if you want to take that risk I guess, there's nothing we can do about it.

    if it's only for a few hours, it's better than removing them after only 2 weeks
