When you get one with like a hole in the middle, do you take the whole skin off? I do because it gets annoying

Point of thread?
No, I just leave it on and it sort of heals itself.
And then it gets ripped again.

But I never seem to get those. I replace my strings before I start gettin those kinda callouses. Cuz I stand it when my strings feel like they need to be replaced to me.

Uh.. I play with same strings for awhile and they actually feel softer as i keep playing them. When i change strings, that's when i get more callouses.

The point is that i wanted to know if peeling it off is bad, or if everyone does it.

If the skin is dead, peel away! Don't go too far or it will take a long time to heal though.
Try leaving it on though, because your fingers will get sore quickly if you peel skin all the time.

I don't peel mine at all. Makes my hands nice and hard. You can't even hurt the tips of my right hand's fingers lol.

I used to peel my callouses when they were hard. They're now soft, but I don't feel any pain, so i guess it's finally fully developed.

That happened to me too, my callouses used to be super hard, but now they're soft and it doesn't hurt. And it's not cause I've played less, I've played a lot more actually.
