    Default industrial piercing gone wrong?

    hey.. i just got my industrial piercing done yesterday.. but im not happy with the positioning of it.. the piercer said he placed it like that becasue he is afraid that my helix will get in the way.. i think the top hole shud be closer to the head.. wad do u guys think? im planning on removing it and getting it re-pierced..

    belows a link of my industrial..

    I think it looks good, that bar is way too long though.
    Its your ear so if you are unhappy get it re-pierced.

    i think it is alright but i want it to be a bit more slanting..cant help being a perfectionist..haha

    i was wondering, if i remove the piercings to let both holes heal, will an abscess form? right now there is no sign of puss or white discharge.. im planning on removing it tomorrow..

    i googled on how to prevent abscess from forming and they suggested to keep the jewellery in and nt remove it.. the problem is i want to remove the jewellery and get a new one done

    ah keep it, mine's at that angle too as I have strange ears.
    Trust me it'll look nice when it's healed with nice fitting jewellery.

    i agree that the bar is too long.. but the piercer said that it was the shortest he had and that it would give my ear room to expand should it swell..

    im planning on getting a shorter bar after it heals tho..

    I like it like that really But it's your ear haha.
    LOL at the length of the bar too..
    You could always get a more slanted one in the other ear
    Or if theres room get a more slanted one in that ear! Double scaffolds ftw!

    About the abscess, it shouldn't form if there's no sign of infection or anything. If you're just taking it out then it should be fine.
