    Hay all i'm balzy buells other half and i've never had a problem, i have 8 in one ear and 5 in the other, I have a spike ring in my eyebrow, a stud in my nose and the middle of my bottom lip done, never caught any, Mind you when i put on and take off my helmet i do pull the chin straps out to the sides as far as i can, maybe try doing that slowly

    I've got belly bars in my ears, and they get caught all the time, but all I do is put the helmit back on then try taking it off again, or if I'm wearing a neck warmer I just pull it up over my piercings so that when I take it off they don't get caught.
    And as my dad say's, "I will bring my shotgun to Cold Kiwi if I have to"

    peace out

    When you turn your bike on - does it return the favour?

    Mine does

    I have ten holes in ears but have sleepers in all and no problems with getting caught except once i just find taking helmet off slowly works also maybe chech your helmet is not too small just a suggestion

    Does anyone else have this problem, and how have you solved it? Taking them out is not an option lol.
    Definitely go the the snuggle or balaclava option. I've just got the two and wear sleepers that get pulled out too if I don't have my snuggly on

    Mine get hooked too sometimes - have noticed it happens more often than not when I try and take my helmet off on an angle. Have also found having thread or huggy earings don't snag but with 12 holes, I can only think that it might be cheaper to use ring earings ? Cheers

    I surpose the other advantage of using a scarf or similar would also be keeping your helmet cleaner ie; less washes?
    But then I am feeling way too domesticated today and am probably talking out my .........

    I only have four but the first time I took off my helmet it tugged on my earlobes quite nicely. I sort of ignore correct procedure for pulling of a helmet and slide it up and back, it works for me.

    I know, holy farking thread dredge, but...

    Just in case anyone else has recently got some fresh and "tender" ear piercings, and knows a balaclava-scarf-cloth-thingie isn't going to do diddlie farking squat about the actual pain that will be caused when you get your helmet on or off, I found these wee morsels that I am hoping will work a treat. They are ear protectors, used in hair salons.

    I used to use press studs instead of butterflies, shave my head and duct tape my lobes to my head.

    I also grab the the helmet straps when I'm putting my helmet on or taking it off and and pull them away from my head to slightly enlarge the opening. It used to help. Haven't worn anything in my ears in years though.

    I have four holes in my left ear - I just wear sleepers now - I sometimes wear the occassional drop earing, but never when I'm riding. Even then I lose sleepers ..

    I have eyebrow bars in my ears. Kinda like miniature belly bars. I hate butterflies because they always get caught on things and tangled in my hair so I tried these when I gave up on having my eyebrow done. They have yet to get snagged on anything
