Repiercing torn earlobes
You don't have to have the torn earlobe repaired, but I find that most people prefer to have a torn earlobe repaired because they don't like the appearance of a torn earlobe. Also, if you have both ears pierced and you are trying to have symmetrical appearance it is not possible to do this without repairing the ear (unless you move both piercings). A repair can be performed under local anaesthetic and your ear can be repierced 3-4 weeks later.
