    Thank you Boo lol.. The piercing is starting to feel much better now. Please to anyone who reads this - It doesn't work for I.B.S stomach pain. - I "was" pain free for 11 days and now it is back and twice as ugly. I am now trying Peppermint Oil capsules. It is the only other thing I haven't tried!

    Congrats mazzy! Ive not found alot on the piercing but did come across the flat piercing aswell so now im getting tempted with that one too i think its a similar place to the shen men piercing. Looks abit painful though as its quite thick cartilage but looks nice. I need something to balance my ear. I have 2 lobe a tragus and daith in the ear so need something up top but wasnt too keen on a normal helix. Oooh decisions

    Thank you Loobyloo30. It was quite a search online to find anything about the Shen Men piercing. It is on YouTube showing the piercing being done too. - And they say afterwards "Oh, I didn't feel a thing" lol... I can vouch that it does hurt. It is much better now the bigger bar is in. I am really sure that this piercing hurt more than the ones I have had on "the flat". I was glad it was only the one piercing to it lol... I now what you mean about the "Oooh decisions" - I am the same!

    Im gald your piercing is feeling better with the new bar
    The flat sounds very tempting! I like this as theres so much you can do with the flat. At first i actually thought the shen men was just another bame for flat as some people are referring to the flat as shen men so i got confused my piercing studio have started to pierce with neometal now too so much more choice of bars

    Thank you for being glad my piercing is feeling better with the new bar. I keep forgetting it is there lol... The Shen Men in a main pressure point that is in the dip part of where the top of a Rook piercing is. (According to the internet). The flat is where my Paw Print piercing is and anywhere along there. I think you could do a few things with the flat and luckily my right one was big. You are lucky your piercing studio is piercing with neomental. It really has changed so much. When I had my first eyebrow piercing many years ago you only had two choices - Titanium bar or hoop and that was it. Hope you find the piercing you are after soon. I will have to post a photo of my Shen Men piercing soon.
