    I got a snug piercing ages and ages ago but now I'm so sick of it; it's uncomfortable to sleep on and REALLY hurts if someone catches it. It's not infected or anything, I just want it out. Now.

    I've tried rubber gloves and pliers but nothing is making it budge. It's a standard 12mm curved barbell. (This is my 12th piercing so I'm used to the normal stiff screw from the original bar)

    I really want to get it out immediately, please please help!!!

    It might be worth popping into your piercer's shop and seeing if they can pry the end off. Their tools might do the job
