    Unsure, you'd probably need to consult a piercer for that one. I just think a straight bar in a rook is unusual but it's not unheard of! I'd LITHA for now and see how it goes.

    It looks like it would be a lot happier with a curved barbell but it won't like the jewellery change at first so consult a piercer like Hazel said. It may be a case of leaving it completely alone and letting the bump go away and the changing the jewellery.

    It's looking so much better today!
    After my boyfriend having a good look it seems the bottom of the bar is sitting right on my ear in the nook (no wonder it got infected) I think the bar shape may be why there's a hypertrophic scar on the bottom (much bigger than the top)


    Would it be unwise to get it changed to a curved barbell at 2 months old?

    Current: lobes x 6, L rook, L helix.

    sorry about the bad quality

    best decision, it hurt a little which was to be expected as something curved was being pushed through something straight!! over very quickly and im happy i did it, the bottom of the ball sits out instead of being tucked up and squashed in the nook of my ear. the new bar is titanium and feels fine. it stung for about a minute after it was changed and now it feels fine, maybe a little tender but otherwise fine.

    the piercer said it was looking really good, and just reminded me it was still pretty fresh.

    for now its just LITHA, as it seems to get annoyed by everything else.

    yay for curved barbell!

    Looks great! I am glad it got changed for you. Mine is 12 months and still can get upset. I use saline sometimes but generally just like to leave it be.

    Thanks guys! You are all amazing!
    Second day since it was changed, it didn't even swell up and no trauma bumps or anything! Keen for a good healing process (with any luck) god I love it. It's been 2 months and I'm still in love with it!

    heres a quick update!! 9 days after having the bar changed. really great! got a bit cranky a few days ago so i gave it a salt soak and it calmed back down. no problems at all. i think some swelling has gone down also since i originally got it changed
