I got 2 bars, vertical ones. Im not much for rings but I might want to try it out in the future when Im sure they have healed 100% and wont change their shape after the rings so I cant get the bars back in later. My piercer did a great job and placed them right where I wanted them, and most of the work of avoiding infections are up to you, you really got to clean them twice a day for 6 weeks and then you're good (that did hurt a bit the first week, you dont want to touch them too much then)Oh ok. That's not too bad! What type of jewelry did you get? Do some types catch more easily than others?
