    Yes, acrylic is bad for fresh piercings and shouldn't even be used in healed piercings for long periods of time.
    Are you sure the retainer and the barbell bar are definately acrylic. They're not PTFE?

    no the barbell isn't acrylic but the balls on it are. And i am not POSITIVE that the retainer is but i saw one just like it on this site and it is acrylic.
