    Post Internally threaded jewelry

    I know this is going to sound kind of stupid, but what way do you turn internally threaded jewelry to tighten it? My tragus has been causing me trouble, and just before it reswelled, it looked like my jewelry might have been a little loose. I just don't want to turn it the wrong way, drop the ball, or whatever and end up causing more problems. Any help would be AWESOME! Thank you!

    Okay thank you!! That's what I thought, but a couple of people had told me it would be opposite because they were internallly threaded, so I wanted to be sure Thanks again!

    I could be wrong but I don't think there's ever an "opposite"...I think it just depends on the way the jewelry is oriented.
    Like if it's in someone else and you're looking at it straight on. Or its backwards to you in your face. Or on the side of your head like in an ear.
    Its all on the way you're looking at it that can make it seem a different way. I think. I could be just telling you complete non sense haha

    But you're welcome and I hope it all goes well
