    Yeah it's pretty close to the edge. I'd get it re-done. Also if you get it re-done, get it with a bar, they usually heal easier with bars.

    it is not really centre, so maybe try again! I know its disappointing haha, but better to be safe than sorry. Maybe find a new piercer if you are wary of how your current one did it.

    To be honest, your tragus itself seems fairly small, so your piercer doesn't have much to work with anyway. You could get it pierced lower, but if it's not causing you any problems, I can't see anything wrong unless it's bothering you that much. Chansu's suggestion is good

    Current piercings: 7/16" lobes, 1.6mm lobes, tongue, labret, septum, navel, 2 x R helix, R tragus, 5mm dermal punched L helix
    Tattoos: tudor rose on stomach, cherry blossoms on shoulder blade
    Planned: daith, rook, conch, & more tattoos!
    Retired: 1.6mm helix, 4mm lobes, 1.6mm scaffold, 1.2mm monroe

    In my honest opinion I think it's a little close to the edge but if you like it, that's all that counts! I don't think it looks bad at all. It's the perfect placement to get another piercing done below.. that could look pretty cool!
