    Default daith & barbell

    I was chatting to a friend as I mentioned I'd like to have a barbell in my daith at some point, and she mentioned her piercer won't do a daith with a barbell in case it gets loose as it can only end up in the ear canal - is this something that can happen?

    Can? Yes.

    Likely? No.

    Do they have the same rule for conches, tragus and rooks too?

    I know some piercers don't like to use a barbell because they are fiddly to fit.

    the same could apply to a ball from a CBR anyway

    I had mine pierced with a barbell and it went fine, the piercer seemed to fit it pretty easily - unfortunately when I got it switched to a CBR there was a different piercer in, and he found it really fiddly to remove, it took forever and I discovered after that he'd made it bleed :(

    There is risk inherent with everything. Even at worst, it could be retrieved. It wouldn't be a big enough risk to scare me if that's the jewelry I wanted. Go for it!

    Fab - thank you everyone

    I'd thought the same about the CBR too. Am fancying my other daith done, but really want it with a barbell
