Earlobe Tears

Because piercings are susceptible to the environment around you, they are often caught on objects and torn. This is especially true of earlobe piercings. For those of you who have ever caught a piercing on a shirt or on your hair, you know the tweak of pain it will cause, and can imagine how it would feel to tug out the entire piercing.
