    Thank you to both of you. Let me see if I can have someone take another picture and I’ll add it. Also, it’s 2 and a half weeks ok to have or changed? It moves back and forth when I clean it and doesn’t hurt much.

    2wks will be fine for a skilled piercer (APP accredited). I had my nipple bar changed after 1 wk due to jewellery being too tight. Your bar is not ideal in a tragus but I have to say that your tragus cartilage doesn't look unhappy at the moment so probably better to have it changed in case things take a turn for the worst.

    Again it's not easy to tell but it may be a touch closer to the edge in the ear but I've seen much worse than that and your finger is pulling forward plus the curved bar makes it look a little off. Personally I would get to an APP piercer and get fitted with quality jewellery suitable for your anatomy. That will make you feel much better about it
    Get that finger away too lol

    My new piercer is APP certified but he refuses to change the jewelry for me. What can happen if I wait the 2 months he’s asking me to wait? Can I put a straight labret in without it messing it up ?

    I'm a bit surprised to be honest as it is such a long bar. Personally I wouldn't change it myself as I'd want a pro-piercer to change it for me at this early stage. Maybe Boo or somebody else on here will be able to help a bit more.
    In the meantime maintain any aftercare, try not to catch it on clothing or hair and minimise any trauma to it including sleeping on it.
    Hopefully someone will chime in soon for you...

    I'd ask him more about the angle of it tbh. If he really thinks it's been done poorly then take it out. I can kind of understand someone not wanting to touch work they don't think has been done well.

    I definitely agree with you. He asked me where I got it pierced and he said that explains it. I think since that was out first encounter he might have hesitated a bit since it’s not his work. To me it looks good but I’m no expert at all. I wonder if I’ll be able to fit a straight labret if I let it heal as he asked me to do. Or could I cause more problems if I change it now. Sorry for the ramble but this has occupied my mind since he told me last week!
