helix is most likely 1.6 as larger guages sit better in cartilage piercings. tongue web.. could be either tbh!
i find that if you hold 1.2mm and 1.6mm jewellery next to each other, you can tell them apart.
otherwise buy a selection, theyre cheap enough. then you have a nice 'stock' jewellery collection!
i need to place an order too.. i dropped my nose retainer on the carpet and it literally vanished.
it will hurt a lot. go a piercing studio, one that uses a needle,an ask them for help and to give you the right jewellery.
yup do that. and do that with your helix too if you cant get it out.. was it done with a BCR?
nah dont worry about the order.. theres quite a bit i want so i'll cover the £10-free-postage thing no probs.
she's got a butterfly one Bexi. I had my cartilage done at claire's (Stupidly) and that's all they have. I had problems getting the butterfly (thing at the back that keeps it falling out) to come out just to clean it and i had to yank it out. it hurt, a lot! i would say go to your nearest proper piercer and ask them for either a bcr or a barbell as they're more comfortable, better for healing and easier.
thats because theyre not trained as piercers. I see your in London.. get yourself to Camden and find a proper piercing studio. They'll remove it for you and put in suitable jewellery.
It is wort it IMO. Lobe piercings are possibly the only ones you will keep for your entire life and although you can always get it done again if it messes up, its just not worth it.. its far better to take care the piercings you've got.
Bexi that link is horrible!! an over-the-counter piercing 'kit' is an option?! lobes are easy and cant go too wrong... but imagine a 14-year old getting a self-piercing 'kit'.. how long till they'd be trying it out on their lip, nose, tongue?!
Ahh, i thought it would have been a back which is like a metal cone, which is designed to help healing (apparently.. but no it ****ing doesnt!), thats what i had mine done with at HMSamuals.
