    It's off! Finally! I got my husband to cut it off with wire cutters. His first reaction was "you want me to do what?!" Then we worked out the best way. I got him to cut the back off, and the relief when he done it was instant. I had fun getting the new barbell in, it wasn't long enough despite being 8mm which was what I thought was the right size, so it's got my initial lobe labret in it, with a ball that is a bit big but I'm going to leave it like that for now. It's got titanium in it, I'm happy!

    Current
    3 lobe each ear, Daith (R), Helix (R), Tragus (L), Rook (L)

    Would like
    Forward Helix (L), Triple Outer Conch (L), Further 2 Helix (R)

    RIP
    Daith (L)

    This side I need to get my second lobe redone as it's not in the nice smile line I was hoping for (that too was done by he dodgy piercer). But I've got a spa day in two weeks so will get it done after that just to be sure

    Goodness my helix feels 10x better already with titanium in it. It isn't sore at all, I thought it may be after the fiddling around but it's absolutely fine. I can even lay on it now which I couldn't before, although I am still avoiding that. Definitely the moral of the story is don't be impatient and go to a bad piercer who uses stainless steel as initial jewerly. I'm lucky that I had no reaction to the steel, but it didn't feel "right". I think it's happier too with a shorter bar in it.

    Alls well that ends well and I have another piercing story to go with the one about my gunned lobes when I was 13!
