It may have only lasted 6 months, but it was well worth it all. But sadly I had to remove all 5 bars int he last week as they were rejecting.
I had the top one done at Blue Banana in Nottingham (a place I’ve been to many a time and love and is pretty cheap) back in January and it healed very well despite it being through scar tissue from the piercing I’d had there the year before which had rejected.
I did the other 4 myself using 1.6mm hollow needles and slotted pennigton clamps and lieing on my bed after marking up in a mirror. They weren’t perfect but they were good enough for me and I was proud to say I’d done them myself.
The only real issue i had was that I had hollow not canular needles so the jewelery was a bit fiddly to get in. I did the side 2 first, and the bottom 2 a few weeks later. Then last month the bottom 2, then side 2 rejected and finally this week the top one rejected too.
I’m left with a stickman shaped scar which is pale but very entertaining and I’m now considering wha to to with my belly button next 😀
