I got my ears pierced 3 days ago at the mall.. my situation was I was trying to get a certain pair of hoop earrings pierced but all the places didn't sell the hoops I was looking for. I left the mall and went to a store that sold the ones I wanted, problem was no piercing place would use the earrings I bought outside of the mall.. So I had to re-pierce my ears there at the mall but with small studs. Now the earrings I want to wear are hoops, but the piercing guy said I have to wait 4-6 weeks before taking them out.. a year straight for them not to close. Can I just take them out real quick and switch them to the ones I want? I don't want my ears to get infected but it's like.. I don't wanna wear these small studs haha. I'm so impatient.. so my question is.. can I quickly change them? Or will it mess me up? I had my ears pierced back in 2012 when I was in high school, but they've been closed for years. I know what the process is like.. can I quickly just swap them out and leave them in for a year or however long im supposed to so they don't close? how long is that anyway? I heard it was a year. anyway can yall help me out?
Generally they use thicker studs for piercing, which will be why they couldn't pierce them with your hoops. Would not recommend. (Especially depending on their metal.)
I would strongly advise against it, unless you can do it in a completely sterile way (ie. boil the piercing in water, clean the skin as thoroughly as possible, wear surgical gloves etc). It would be much easier and much less risky to wait the 4-6 weeks.
The poster above has a point too! If you're going to do hoops, make sure they're very small (as in the kind of hoops that are close to your lobe rather than the bigger ones). You can try the big ones once you're certain they're fully healed, but little hoops will work best at first, and it prevents the piercings from getting stretched
