I had my earlobe pierced by the gun 10 weeks ago. I've read from everywhere, they all said it takes around 6-8 weeks to heal, or something like that. It's been 10 weeks, when I take out my stud today, there's still little bits of blood seeping out. If I leave the stud out a crust will form. It doesn't hurt and isn't swelled up, which means it shouldn't be infected (if it was it'll hurt). Is this normal? I thought by "healing" it meant actually healing.

Earlobe piercing--how long does it ACTUALLY take to heal?

If it isn't swollen or painful, I don't think it's infected. Healing time for piercings always varies...though the ear lobe should heal rather quick...in any case, if your worried, just keep the stud in and wash it with anti-bacterial soap everytime you take a shower. Time will take care of the rest.

I would try the female bodybuilding section. I bet they would knowI have only two regrets: I didn't shoot Henry Clay and I didn't hang John C. Calhoun.

My Personal Experience
I got my ears pierced (two more holes in each lobe) around Halloween '07 and counted 8 weeks after that to mess around with them. Unfortunately for me, I didn't seem to be fully healed because there was some blood coming out, so I left them in for another week and tried wearing non-post earrings (usually a bad idea but I couldn't resist). It was uncomfortable on the ear lobe that was thicker so i took it out again for another week. The next week that I wore the earrings, everything was fine. I'd say the upper ear lobe takes longer to heal because I still get puss around the earring when I take it out. You just have to get a feel for your own body and figure out when the time is right...

When I got mine done, it never had any problems.
From the second day, it was pretty much perfectI rep back!
