    Default Tragus pierced with a long curved barbell

    Iím new to the forum and to piercing. About three weeks ago I had my tragus and rook pierced. I went to a nearby tattoo place and the guy used a long curved barbell on both. I recently went to another shop and to get my conch pierced and the new piercer told me that my tragus was done wrong and that the angle was off. I asked him to change it to the jewelry he recommends it he refuses to do it u til the piercing is at least 2 months old. Iím scared it will tear or reject. Suggestions?

    If the angle is off then it needs to be repierced. Jewellery won't change that. Any pics?

    As above but you don't need an account to upload to imgur unless you want your photo to be private.

    Hard to tell but the angle doesn't look too bad but we can't see it from all sides. However, that jewellery needs to be changed out ASAP, not in 2 months but now. Find an APP registered piercer and ask them to have a look at it.

    Yeah....can see the pix no problems
    The first image looks pretty good to me.
    The second image...what a bar . It's hard to tell if it's too shallow or crooked without seeing the inner hole clearly but Boo may spot something which I'm missing with her vast experience

    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.
