If you have an Industrial get in here!!!! Update! It had to be TAKEN OUT!! Pic pg. 7
I had my Industrial redone on Saturday afternoon (also got my first tattoo that you can see!!!) and it is still bleeding. It hurt WAAAAY more than the tattoo and a lot more than when I had it done the first time a few years ago.. The bar isnt long enough to slide back and forth either so I havent been able to move it at all. Is this normal? I know it takes a few months minimum to heal but should it bleed like this???
He told me to use salt water 2x a day for 3 days and then just use regular dial soap.. (It is a very well known shop too)
Update: So it will be 2 weeks tomorrow since I had my industrial and tattoo done. Today I went to clean the industrial and the swelling was finally down enough for me to look under the bar. Well my ear was cut open under the bar!!! I called the place and since I live over an hour away from them they said to go to my local shop to have the bar taken out and bent away from my ear, easy solution. I get to my shop down the road and she first of all said the bar he put in was WAY to short (I knew that already). Then she got a longer bar and bent it 4 times and kept trying to put it back in but with the way it was placed she couldnt bend the bar far enough to get it off my ear! She called her husband over (shop owner) and he looked at it and said "What the fuck?! This is all completely wrong! Your original bar is much too short, the top of the piercing is way too close to your head and the bottom piercing is too low! We cant save this. We can put this bent bar in but it will leave a permanent indent in your ear vecause of how the piercing is placed. I cannot believe this shop did this to you! Your ear shouldnt even still be swollen!" I was visibly upset because this was the one thing I have done for myself in years and really wanted this. All of a sudden he says "Fuck it! Hunny, pierce her other ear for free! Show her how its SUPPOSE to be done!" and they pierced it for FREE!!!!!!! They werent even the one's who fucked up in the first place and they gave me a brand new piercing!!!! :-D
I put a guaged hoop through the bottom hole of the botched industrial piercing... Figured I might as well try and save it!!
