    Default barbells too short in new nipple piercing?!

    Hello everyone,
    So i got my nipples pierced 4 days ago now and now that i'm doing a little more research and looking at them i'm afraid that my barbells are too short. the majority of the time they look fine, however when swelling starts i notice that the balls on the ends of the barbells seem to be almost all the way up against my nipple and i cant see the bar at all. The balls are not inverting into the nipple but it definitely looks close to happening. does anyone have any experience or advice on this?

    Hi Rimmski,
    So long as you have high quality implant grade jewellery in there then I would personally think that your piercer may have got it right so long as the balls aren't indenting and causing further trauma.
    It is about finding a balance. Too long and you will be forever catching them on clothing etc. You've got to feel happy and comfortable so if in doubt then return to your piercer for a checkup or seek out a second opinion with a reputable piercer.

    Just keep an eye on them.
