6 weeks for the lower lobe. Otherwise it could be up to 8 weeks. Cartillage piercings can take up to 6 months to heal.

If you have newly pierced ears how long do you have to wait to get them pierced in a different spot?

Well, firstly, you have to keep your studs in for six weeks without taking them off. After then, I'd leave it a couple of weeks before making an appointment to get them pierced in another place.

Will pierced ears close up after having them done almost 4 weeks ago and will it leave a scar How long before ears can be repierced after they close up?

After you get your ears pierced, you should keep the first earrings in for about 6 weeks. But you should wear earrings at all times (only studs) for the first 6 months as well, to keep the holes regular sized. If you let your ears close up, or if they become infected (or both) there will most likely be a scar (a small dot where your hole was, if you could call that a scar). You must wait a while after your ears close up to get them re-pierced, because there may be scar tissue. I do not know the exact amount of time you must wait to have them re-pierced. But I bet if you went to the piercing place and told them how long ago your ears closed up/got infected, they could tell you if they could pierce them or not. This information is just from my personal experience, so results may be a little different for you ;)

Does Claudia Schiffer have her ears pierced?

Yes, she does. She had her ears pierced in 2006 especially for the photoshoot for her Autumn/Winter 2006 advertising campaign for the fashion chain, Accessorize, so that she could model some of the earrings they sell - all of which are for pierced ears only. Here's what Claudia had to say about it in a magazine interview: "When we were discussing the photoshoot details a few weeks beforehand, they asked me if I'd be prepared to have my ears pierced, as all of the new season's earrings were for pierced ears. I'd never had them done before but, as they said they'd pay me an additional fee if I agreed to have them pierced, I thought 'why not', and had them done the very next day. At first, it felt a bit strange to have them done, but I soon got used to it. Now, I really love them and keep wondering why I waited so long to have them done." Since then, she's kept her ears pierced, but doesn't always wear earrings. So the answer is yes, she does have her ears pierced.
