    well JennaD suggested athletic tape +headgear, so I figure I'll give that a roll and make sure the people I spar with are aware that I've got newly pierced ears and go real light.

    Since you've already exposed yourself the cross contamination inherent in going the typical mall route, it would be kind of silly to not to come away with at least the piercing you want for the risk you are already taking.

    After thinking about this a little more, I think going to a piercing professional now is still a good idea. They deal with all types of piercings for all types of people. It would not surprise me in the least if a special piercing or a proper healing protocol already exists for exactly your situation.

    If you got it pierced with a gun it will take a lot longer to heal up properly that if you had it done professionally due to the way the hole is made. I recommend religious cleaning with salt water. as Tom said, the more antiseptic or surgical spirit you use, the longer it'll take. Also get some Savlon cream and use a cotton bud to put it on the stud/ring around the opening.

    If you do have to take them out for training you'll probably have a mini battle getting them back in and it may make it sore or bleed a little. It's normally recommended that you don't remove the jewlellery for at least 6 weeks but I was able to do it after 2. I guess it depends on how quickly you heal.

    Sheesh, you're not too good about making people feel better these things are you?

    It's not like she pulled some rusty nail gun out of a tool box and jabbed holes in our ears, everything was all individually wrapped, surgically sterilized and bla bla bla and we got to pick out the piercing studs of our choice (though I kinda wish I'd picked the blue stone instead... ) ;)

    I'm getting feedback from my female fighter friends on the subject and it doesn't seem like too big of a deal, really.

    Sounds like a winner to me.

    At my old high school they didnt let guys have peirced ears and I remember all the guys would thread like fishing line through the holes while at school to keep new ones from healing up.

    Is that what you did or did you use a specific type of plastic tubing?

    And 99.9% of the time, it isn't too big of a deal.

    I'm hardly a germ-o-phobe, but please understand that I've suffered the bad luck of 2 serious bacterial infections in my life - one of which I could have most likely avoided.

    Saving $20 and taking a .1% risk you could easily avoid doesn't seem very prudent to me, but I'm loaded. So, sorry if it comes across as fear mongering.

    Did the person wash his/her hands? :beatdead:

So my question, for any folks here who've had their ears pierced since they've been training, how did having pierced ears interfere with your training/how did you get around it/how did you continue sparring etc. ?

    HELPFUL feedback would be appreciated.
    My daughter had her ears pierced about a year ago. She had one tear during sparring when she got punched in the side of the head. She now has a split it her ear lobe. We were told that she will have to have plastic surgery to have it corrected.

    However, she still left the other one in so it wouldnt grow up. My wife,( a nurse ) took the back off the earing and then put tape over it. She said that this would allow the earring to pull out and not tear if it was snagged, and the tape would keep it from falling out.
