    if it's easy, measure the gap between the holes in your actual piercing and round it up to the closest millimetre, that's the length you'll need.

    My friend's mom pierced her 6-year-old daughter's ears today with an "ear piercing kit." Saw the box and it showed two really really sharp studs... eeek.

    omg! makes me wanna cringe...infact i DID cringe.

    i had to take my monroe out early hours of this morning. *sigh* i had an ulcer underneath the back plate of the labret and i thought it was getting better until my lip swelled reaaaalllly badly. took it out and had a look and the ulcer had become an open sore and the back plate was starting to embed into it.

    DAMNIT.
