In brief: No way to guarantee

If you have a history of keloids, there is certainly a risk of developing keloids from piercings of other skin injuries.
There is no guaranteed way to prevent them. If you don't have a history of keloids its less likely you'll get them in any event.

In brief: Unknown

Some things may help decrease keloid formation like pressure earrings, steroid injections or silicone sheeting.
If you are prone to developing keloids there is always a chance for keloid formation after any piercing or trauma.
