Earlobe Maintenance

Lobes can be ignored for the most part . If it looks dry, moisturize your ear lobe with a regular moisturizer.

These piercings can be stretched to accommodate thicker jewelry (diameters of 2" or more are possible) which should be done slowly so that you do not permanently damage the surrounding tissues.

Resist the urge to wear thin wires and heavy pendants. Jewelry migration in your ear lobe tends to slowly enlarge your piercing by slicing it toward the margin.
