    Ear piercings vs helmet?

    I have a fair few piercings in my ears (12), some of which are a bit tender. I find they get ripped up a bit when I put on/take off my helmet.
    Does anyone else have this problem, and how have you solved it? Taking them out is not an option lol.

    Both my ears are stretched to 10mm and I have no problems, so can't help.

    Yep, but only have one in each ear. Find I have to wear small sleepers. Try putting some kind of scarf or balaclava on or tape.

    I ended up putting smaller earings in the top of my ears, no probs with the lower earings.
    Got 6 in my ears.

    Yeah, and there's more to come
    I haven't tried anything yet, silk sounds like the go I'll see if it helps
    They all have rings in them atm, I find that's the easiest/most comfortable

    Sport (thermal) balaclavas work well.
    Sweat wipes off. Road-rash doesn't.

    My helmet doesn't come down as far as my ears so can't help..

    It's the polarfleece neck-muff that causes the problem when I take it off.

    Dont wear enough steel for a box of four inch nails in your ears


    Try taping your head like the rigby guys do:O
    Or use a thin headband like the exercise gurus do
