    Default Changing industrial from hoop to barbell

    I'm having major problems with my industrial -- it was pierced about 3 months ago and I was advised to keep 2 hoops in it until it healed. It's healed now, so I bought a barbell (from the shop here!) and after much struggling with BCRs I tried to put it in. The top hole is fine, I got the bar straight through, but the bottom hole is being really awkward. I think the hole might be ring-shaped and not straight, if you know what I mean.

    Any suggestions? I've been fiddling with it since last night and it's doing my head in! :x

    It's cool, I finally managed to get a bar in it -- it took me about an hour of solid wiggling though! :lol:

    It might have been pierced at a slightly odd angle, which means having a barbell in could create major keloids...get it checked out to be sure,.
