    Default Help please! Is my piercing off?

    Hey guys, so I had to get my ear repierced because it was pierced at an angle, so I decided to get it professionally done with a needle this time, but I am freaking out because as it looks good from the head on shot, it looks way off from a side shot, but is pierced in the middle so idk why it is doing this to me? Can it be because it is still swollen from the piercing (doubt it) does it look stupid, or am I just bugging out for no reason? I would really hate to have to get it pierced for a third time. Please help thanks guys!

    No not really - it suits the shape of your lobes, on closer inspection it could be a teeeny weeny bit over but overall just suits the way your ears sit imo.

    Looks fine man.
    You're just bugg'n.

    For what it's worth, I'm the same way.
    When I got my Labret done,
    I made the guy stick me 3 times in a row until I was 100% with the placement.
    It almost made my girl pass out.
    A couple weeks later I started looking at it again and STILL thought about having it redone.
    It's called ANALYSIS PARALYSIS,
    and it happens to everyone, at some point, over some thing. lol.
    Don't worry about it.

    yes it looks fine to me. It might look off to you because of the shape of your lobe/ear? It could be the swelling too. My ears are both slightly different shapes so one side sticks out funny and the other doesn't, but they both look fine straight on (except that one is lower than the other, but it was done by gun long ago =/ )
    If you are worried that other people will think it's off... I doubt they will... no one notices mine.
    Piercings: Same on both ears - 8g 1st lobes, 12g 2nd lobes, 14g conches, 16g rooks, 16g anti-tragus
    16g septum
    Future plans: 14g septum

    It looks nice, not wonky at all.
    But, don't tell me you had it done with a needle then put that other stud back in?

    +1 unusual jewellery for a pro piercing.

    Also it looks fine, as others have said it's your anatomy that isn't perfect (no ones is) along with any potential swelling and chunky jewellery that may make it look a bit odd.
