    Default Double helix spacing question...

    Hi.
    I just had the second piercing of my double helix re-done after the first was pierced at an angle which wouldn't have looked right when I swapped out for rings.

    Everything got marked up, looked fine but...the day after I noticed the piercings are closer together this time round.

    Piercer has said if I'm not happy we can take it out and try again...but I can't decide if it's better or worse than the first time. I mean when I swap for BCR's I want to be able to see that there's 2 rings there and I don't want the balls to touch when they're resting on the rim... Any thoughts? (pics below)

    Thanks

    No they did show the placing...but with the lower piercing in it was harder to tell....it looked OK at the time so neither of us noticed how much closer it was...
    Yeah other people can't decide if I'm happy with it...but neither can I, all I can do is gather opinions from others to help me decide...if that makes any sense?
    Thanks

    I think it will be fine - looks like plenty space that will mean the balls won't touch.
