Thank you. As for why my lobes are at 1 1/8" after 3 years of healthy stretching: I just don't feel quite right without them. As cheesy as it sounds, they're "me". Same goes for the scar on my bridge. If it had never gotten to the point of scarring like it did, I'd feel naked and go get it re-pierced. Half sleeve is up next. EDIT: As for OP, yeah get that cut off.
