    Thanks all. I think ill leave it a few days then check the balls. Sounds strange but if i hold the bottom ball and check the top would this loosen the bottom one? As i saod ive not had the bars with 2 balls on before so not sure if they both turn the same way and how to check one without making the other loose

    Holding the bottom ball and turning the top is the way to do it. If you turn the top ball clockwise (right to tighten) it will turn the opposite end to tighten too. Turn the top ball anticlockwise (left to loosen) and one of the balls will loosen first. If you loosen by accident then just turn the top ball back in the opposite direction to retighten.
    Hope this helps but it can be a bit confusing if you're not used to it.

It does say on my sheet to check the balls now and then to make sure theyre not loose but i dont know which ball to check. Do they both come lose? Im not attempting it at the minute as i dont want to irritate it. Im thinking of a flat next but it sounds too painful lol
    Loobyloo30 - If you are worried about the balls could you ask your piercer to see if they are ok and for them to tighten them for you? I was never able to check mine as they were really long. You didn't want to go near them lol... I had CBR's fitted in the end when they got better as the balls are much harder to come off. Please do your best to basically not to touch them. I was advised the complete opposite and ended up with really bad bumpy ears. They took over two years to get better and can still play up some days. My ears just love the shower rinses and the Prontolind spray is good.

    "Flat" wise one or two won't be too bad - I had all five in one go. And I still love that piercing and would do it again!

    Other than the gem end that fell off my Paw Print Piercing (I was warned at the time it was not on totally tight in case I needed to take it off as it was new as my piercer went on holiday). I have only ever been able to get one other piercing undone myself (that my piercer has pierced). My piercer has got a very tight grip!

    Thanks mazzy. Ive tried to gently check the tightness today and the i cant even get my fingers near or around it it tucked eight in there haha. My partner has tried and cant either he said he can't see any thread on the bar so im assuming tahts good and means they are still tight. When i was pierced she really did tug when tightening my bar so i think she did it tight enough. Its still helaing well just using water and prontolind. Im still looking into either the flat or a double helix to finish that ear....she says until she finds a new one that takes her fancy

    No Problem Loobyloo30. Glad you are doing well. Like Boo mentions - please leave your ear(s) alone now. You don't want to really irritate them as I did with mine and didn't I know about it!

    Hope you manage to have the piercing(s) you are after. Yes, I am the same always wanting something else too lol...
