Does an ear piercing ever go away completely?

I still have a scar in my ear that I can feel, even though it's been more than five years since I removed the ear ring...does an ear piercing scar or hole ever go away completely? If so, how long does it take?

it will close
the scar will get lighter and less visable with time
