I have had my left ear pierced for ages. Today I finally made the jump to guaged (got a 16 guage-ya I know its small). I just bought the earring and put some cream on it that they gave me at the place I bought em and pushed it thru. Now for the right ear(no existing hole). I was thinking just shoving a sewing needle thru halfway(so half the needle sticks out on both sides of the lobe) and then putting the earring thru and removing the needle. Any words of wisdom? Where Nissantunerdude when you need him?
