    I want to get my ears done again but it won't be in line with the first two piercings so I can't decide. Would it look stupid? On the ear lobe.

    I don't understand what you mean by 'it won't be in line' (I'm imagining three lobe piercings, which I think is pretty common and looks alright?). Ink the dot on and see if you like it. And if you do want it done, then just go for it. If you then decide against it, just take it out and let it heal over.

    I hesitated for ages over my third love piercing, finally went for it and I love it. It's not completely symmetrically spaced with the other two as it had to be below the cartilage but once I've got earrings in all three holes you can't tell. It did take longer to heal than my first two though, possibly because it gets knocked a bit more.

    No. The odd piercing looks fine. More than 2 (heck probably 1) just looks tacky.

    Just go for it! But make sure you don't use a piercing gun, go to a studio and save yourself the associated risks.

    If you go to a professional piercing studio they will help you with the placement to make sure they're in line etc.
