The chest anchor (aka microdermal, cleavage single point piercing) is being very calm.  I hardly know it’s there. It’s crusting some, but not too bad–yet.   It’s kind of an odd place for a piece of jewelry, and I’m kind of getting used to it.  I’m still not sure whether I need to hide it for work, or just ignore it or pretend it’s a stick on gem or something.

The nipple piercing, on the other hand–

BAR TOO SHORT!

I’ll have to return to ABQ to see Noah as soon as possible to get it changed out.  The balls are sinking in to the nipple, which is not good.  (In Noah’s words, “bummer.”) I was keeping an eye on it, because I thought it might just be swelling, but–it’s definitely too short.

Sometimes there’s a bit of trial and error involved in getting the right fit for jewelry, and you never know how your body will react, either.  So I’m concentrating on keeping it clean and happy until I can get it changed out.

    My nipple piercing did the same thing. Watch it closely…once it starts to embed, it happens very quickly. Quickly, as in hours, not days.

    I experienced that. Embedding, when it occurs, is rapid. Hours. Keep a close eye on it.

    I am keeping a close eye on it. I’m not sure there’s much I can do “to” it, if you know what I mean. I suppose some piercee might have a clever trick with surgical tape or something.

    I think it will be okay for a few more days.
