    Thumbs up [SIZE="5"]From Down Under[/SIZE]

    Hey the names Madi im 16 from Victoria Australia and currently only have my lobes pierced one second on top of one side ( needa get the other one done) and a higher Helix piercing although I do want to get my rook pierced but am really worried about side affects as I am pretty sure one girl I know who has it is now or was for a short time deaf in that ear. :S does anyone know if thats normal and what the chances are?

    Hi there, answered you on your other thread, no you cannot become deaf. You can chop your whole entire ear off and not be deaf. Don't listen to friends who just want to scare you, do research, people wouldn't get their ears pierced if deafness was a side effect.

    This forum provides good information so ask away and also remember to read around and see what peoples experiences are. There is also another site with information here about how to care for a rook, here on the healing process of a piercing as well as some of the issues that can be encountered.

    Welcome to the forums.
    Piercings: 6 lobes, 2 12mm stretched lobes, 4 helices, 3 tragus, daith, 2 nostril, 2.4mm VCH, 2.4mm daith

    coinslot ear cartilage removal, 5mm conch punch
    Cosmetic Modifications: Scar removal x7, semi permanent eyebrows, semi permanent eyeliner, semi permanent lipstick, lip dermal filler, botox

    There is nothing in the exterior anatomy of the ear that is connected to the ear-drum. You CANNOT become deaf from an ear piecing unless the piercing involved sticking a large object directly INTO the INSIDE of the ear (which wouldn't be piercing - it would just be completely MORONIC!) and therefore destroying your ear-drum. End of.

    Oh and I probably know a little more than your teenage friends as I'm in my forties and have been pierced and tattooed for YEARS before they were born.

    But then again its such a stupid idea (becoming deaf through piercing), that are you sure you're not just trolling??? Hmmmm???

    People make up loads of nonsense about piercings, usually because they have nothing better to talk about. Unless they are ramming implements down someone's ear (which will not happen) then no a piercing cannot cause hearing problems at all.
