    Default How do I change my nipple rings?

    I've had them like, oh, roughly 8 months now and I want to change, but I have no idea how to. I have the captive barbell rings in both nipples. Only problem is, when I was pierced, the guy had to use pliers to tighten them because these rings/balls don't screw on.. Am I supposed to use pliers?

    Is it easy to to do?

    HELP! :?

    well, with a bcr they are usually opened with ring opening pliers but scissors work just as well!!

    1. put the blade of the scissors inside the ring
    2. open the scissors as wide as you can so that the ring is pulled open just enough for the ball to drop out.
    3. be ready to catch the ball!! or it'll be lost forever! (might be good to do this led down or in front of a mirror over the sink! with the plug in!!)

    be careful not to over open the scissors or youll bend the bcr out of shape & the ball wont go back in properly.
    i use this method on al of my piercings, saves me buying the pliers!

    1x lip

    1x nape

    lol...just line the jewellery up with the hole and push it through...if you feel resistance then change direction slightly until it slides through smoothly
