Basically I was cleaning the piecing and it caught on the cotton wool and came out. I've tried to put it back in but it just isn't going.

What should I do?
Will I be charged if I go upto the tattoo studio where I got it done again?

If it's anything like the cartilidge in the ear then it will heal extremly fast, you have to toughen up and push it through while it hasn't entirely healed. It may hurt though! I've had to do it twice so far >.<

my nose bar did this also... it will hurt like hell but you need to fiddle around until you find the exact spot wher it was, ( ie angle it went in) and push like hell! It will hurt, but it will fit back in. Use lots of salt water after, to help heal quicker to stop this happening again... try using cotton buds instead x

You're just going to have to try until you get it in else it will heal very quickly.

try using a small earring to find the hole. When you have found it follow the swiry bar thing through, it should work. If it hurts too much numb it with ice maybe?

Go back to your piercer. They might be able to taper open the hole and put your jewellery back in. Don't just try and shove it back through, that will damage it and make it painful and difficult to heal. Alternatively, let it heal, wait a few weeks and get it pierced again.

I did that with pretty much all my piercings 'cause I just fiddle too much and I'm clumsy : ) Lip bar was hardest to shove back in but it did go and doesn't hurt for long after imo.

Seriously, just get it back in, won't hurt anymore than when you had it done...

Be careful with getting it back in. If it's anything like the piercing I had done at the top of my ear it might swell up and get infected if you try to get it back in. Mine was so swollen it nearly swallowed the jewellery.

When I had the top of my ear done it did swell up and swallow the piercing. But the piercer has just given me a token to get it repierced cheaper when it heals.

Mine did that, but I just pushed it through again.

With mine, you have to get your finger up into your nose and feel for the stud as it comes through the front of the hole, then wiggle your finger around a bit until it pops through.
It's probably too late now, but I was sat in front of the mirror for around 2 hours trying to get it back in again - and was successful. Don't give up.
