    I think you would be fine to get them done, I don't know what effect it would have on 0g lobes though. I've had my tragus 8 months, my rook 4 months and my industrial a little over a month. I think you would be fine. I don't even class my tragus as healing cause I get NO trouble at all from it.
    Ears;
    Tragus (l), Double Helix (l), Rook (r), Conch to conch Industrial (r), Daith (l), Snug (l) lobes (l@2.4mm r@0mm).
    Body;
    Navel.(2mm)
    Hoping for;
    Septum, snug (L), antitragus (R), more lobes, forward helix(L), horizontal industrial (hopefully, R). Double tongue, Inverse navel, collarbone MD's, 6mm/8mm lobes, horizontal nipples, VCH/Triangle
    (if i ever get brave enough.)

    Retired;
    Lobes (l&r) second time up.

    Sounds like the others are healed enough for you to have them done, just be observant that they don't start acting up after you've had the lobes done and be prepared to baby them if they start giving you any grieve.
    I'm at 0g at I had a 2nd and 3rd lobe before I started stretching it and they are fine, they just seem to stay put as the gauged hole gets closer. Just tell the piercer that you're going to be going up to 0g and I can't imagine you would have a problem.

    Here's a reference to mine.
    2g - 1g - 0g

    Current:
    Tongue done 8 years ago. (Man, I'm getting old)
    Right ear: 8 mm lobe, 2x1.2 mm lobe, helix
    Left ear: 8 mm lobe, 1.2 mm lobe, snug.

    What to get next?!?

    Lobes are such easy healers that I'm pretty sure it won't be a problem it worked out fine for me.

    That's what I figured, when I had the first pair pierced at the same size they healed up within a month and a half without any issues besides the jewelry being too short which was easily fixed.

    That sucks Lindsay. It's weird that people have so many issues with bumps on nostril piercings, I never had any troubles with mine besides soreness when changing jewelry.

    On another note, I'm really wanting a daith piercing (with only a barbell, rings look awesome but not on me it wouldn't) but it just doesn't fit in with my plans for my ears at all. If I got one it would have to be on the left ear, but then it would have two more piercings than the other ear once it's done and it would feel unbalanced. I'd get it on my right ear but I think it would look a bit crowded with a rook, double inner conch, and two lobe piercings.

    I don't really like rooks and daiths on the same ear... how about get the daith on your rook ear, and connect both piercings with a long curved barbell!

    I don't either, I think it looks weird. I don't think that would be very comfortable or practical, probably looks cool though.

    My hip bars nearing the end of its life :( the bends in the bar are right close to the surface. Lasted me 16months so far, decent for a surface piercing . Now its whether i want to get the venoms or snakebites, since ive wanted both for ages and i can finally get them




    Have i gone mad? Im afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But i'll tell you a secret. All the best people are.
