I've gotten my ear pierced before, will I get a keloid this time?

When I was nine months, I got my first ear piercings, no keloids. When I was 13, I got my 2nd hole, no keloids. Now, I want to get my industrial piercing, is it guaranteed I won't get one this time?

    Nothing is guaranteed, but keloiding is rare. Most people mistake hypertrophic scarring (something really common and easy to treat) for keloids. These are small bumps of scar tissue that don't go past the original piercing site.

    If that's the only thing holding you off from getting this piercing, I wouldn't worry about it.

    i does no longer difficulty about it too a lot. once you've a bent to over scar then it may well be a danger, yet no longer very likely. in case your only pierceing the lobe,theyou'llll be advantageous. only very simplDON'TNT contact THEM ha haha
