Last Night. It started bleeding at work, and it felt like the balls were like sinking into the skin, making massive holes in my tummy!!
Fingers crossed it doesnt SCAR!!
So What Went Wrong?
According to the lady who took it out, the bar was way too short. Im not suprised by this. The guy who pierced it used a regular tongue bar (which is just straight) and bent it with PLIERS into the shape of a staple (which is what surface piercing jewelery looks like). I should have said something to him, but I guess he knew what he was doing.
ALso, not many piercers will actually pierce the navel area using a surface piercing bar, they use Micro Dermals instead. This is because the tummy is an area that moves alot, and so theres a high risk of piercing rejection.
I was also concerned when my piercer didnt properly steralize the jewelery, he didnt even wipe my tummy clean with a steralized cloth!!!! I should have picked up on these things, and Im kicking myself that I didnt.
Honestly, When you get a piercing, go to a REPUTABLE piercer. I bought this all on myself!! Essential Beauty has a pretty crappy rep as piercers, which is probs why their piercings are so cheap.
