    Default Rook piercing choice

    Hello! I am going to get my rook pierced in the near future here, and I was wondering if its a good choice to get a circular barbell in it, rather than a curved one? I know cbrs allow too much movement but I like how pressure isn't an issue and cleaning is easy with cbrs so maybe a circular barbell is a happy medium?

    Hello, I was pierced with a Cbr for my rook. It had to be changed in the end as it moved about and became annoying and sore. It also migrated a little. My piercer changed it for a curved bar in the end. It is much better now. Circular barbells will be the same as a Cbr as I had the same problem with my Tragus. That also came out and I went in to a bio flex labret post in the end.

    Perhaps you could change to a circular barbell when you have healed. I did this for my Daith’s as they couldn’t get any smaller barbells as they all looked too long. My Daith’s are lovely now.
