    hey, im havin some problems with my tragus, i dont know what to do about it!

    i had it done with a gun (i knowwwww, i wont in the future its just that the other piercings i've had before were okay) it was healing fine until this morning when i woke up.

    my ear hurt and when i went to turn the piercing... it wasnt there! its swollen up with the stud inside, im scared!

    im guessing i shouldnt take it out because i cant actually get to the stud, only the back but what do i do? i dont wanna leave it in there and make my ear go funny and be deformed.

    the actual bit where its pierced is very dark, i have been trying to get the swelling down in the hope that the piercing will come through again, any help please

    Just to update, I ended up going to the Accident & Emergency area at the hospital and had it removed, it continued to swell so I had no choice.

    Am not happy about this, am considering talking to the place where I had it done about why they use a gun.

    It was mank, the doctor sorta looked at it and his face was like o_O, a doctor that can't stomach piercings lol!
  3. That sounds awful! I would definitely speak to the piercer who did it, especially if all your other piercings were fine. Hope your ear gets better soon!

    Which is why I don't understand why places like Claire's even do piercings.

    But whatev. I suppose any hole can swallow a stud. My new earring tried to swallow the o-ring on the pincher, but I wasn't gonna take none o' that.
