I just had my nipples pierced yesterday. I chose a piercing shop I thought had a good reputation, but perhaps I was overly trusting. I had wanted two horizontal piercings with straight barbells, but when the piercer marked the locations on me, I didn’t even think to check them out in a mirror (nor did he offer). Low and behold, they are now pierced quite deep through the areola, where I recall reading through numerous sources, the jewellery should not touch.
I am a bit concerned, and am wondering if they even stand a chance at healing? They are both developing red streaks on the outside entrance as well, you may see them in the photo, what are they? I’m worried about the way the barbel digs in as well. Any suggestions?
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I think your right to be concerned. They do have a chance of healing but I don’t believe its that good of a chance.
My advice is to go back to the shop and politely explain that you aren’t happy with the piercings. If they have a good reputation like you say they should be more than happy to help you in correcting the problem. If they don’t then maybe its time to find a new shop.
