Take it off slowly If not get lost
It's been done... But ask the piercer. S/he'll have a look to determine if it closed/scarred well, etc.
It all depends on your pain tolerance. I don't think it hurt too bad because I pierced mine 4 times myself.
There is a belief that for a guy to get his right ear pierced is for him to express that he is gay. Of course, it means nothing in reality except for how people perceive it.
if its a hoop go back to your piercer. if its a labret your gonna need rubber gloves, hold the flat piece and turn the ball right
