    Good luck! Hope the neometal helps a lot.

    And no it was still in one piece! The ball was still screwed on tightly and the post with the disc end was also all intact! I did have it stretched to 4 mm but didn't have any good jewelry for it (no flare plugs) So I decided to go back to my 1,6 mm labrets. Those left a huge cap that didnt close though. I let the hole shrink for a good 2 weeks and then decided to fill the rest of the gap up with tape. Now the posts are around 3,6 mm and the back disc is 4,2 mm or so. They were fine for 3-4 weeks though! They stayed perfectly in place without issues. But just now one of them fell through the hole..
    If my lips were quite stretchy then I would understand that 0,6 mm isn't enough to hold it in. But my lips aren't that stretchy. A difference of 0,5 mm is already too much for it to go through easily. If I was going to stretch it I needed to put some considerable amount of force behind it to get it through..
    Hey I'm Patrick. Or call me Chris, both are fine.

    I've been hit by customs charges on 2 BAF orders in a row :( I've ordered from them so many times in the past and never got one.

    Kinda wary of ordering with them now.
    Current:
    8mm lobe, 1.2mm lobes x4, helix x3, rook x3, inverse navel, tragus, anti-tragus, conch, diagonal nipples x2, septum, double nostrils.

    Retired: Forward helix x2, helix, standard navel, Madison MD x3

    I'd say 90% of my overseas orders get customs now. A few years back I'd say it was more a 50/50 chance, it's nothing to do with BAF, just HMRC sadly. You can ask your piercer to order stuff they sell that you can't get anywhere else but you'll always pay a bit more because of their overheads etc which is totally fair and supports your local piercer, so it's usually worth just getting someone to order stuff in for you.

    Hoping my septum continues to heal up nicely, despite me taking the jewellery out to clean and putting it back in after I lost one of my CBR balls. My septum piercing is my baby <3

    I know it's not BAF's fault but it's still annoying! I do get some jewellery from my piercer, but I just wanted to replace my GWS mushroom plug.

    I had my snug and helix pierced 3 days ago, and today they've swapped. I can't feel my snug at all, but my helix has been throbbing (not drastically, but enough for me to know it's there) today, which has made me paranoid. I know not to get worried now as it is so fresh, and I slightly recall hitting it in my sleep last night, but I can't shake the anxious feeling unfortunately.
    I'm Ebony, nice to meet you.

    R: 3 x lobes, nostril, conch, horizontal nipple, forward helix and helix.
    L: 3 x lobes, tragus, nostril, horizontal nipple, flat, and snug.
    C: septum.
    retired: upper navel.

    Considering...helix (R), flat (L) VCH, and 2 x nape md's

    Tattoos: 4 (7 hours of work)
