The ring in my right ear will NOT lay down. It did for a very short period last night, but I think it was cemented in place (if you’ll pardon the visual) by blood. Now that the piercing has been cleaned and is, um, mobile, it’s choosing to stick straight out again.
An extension of my personality? Just a result of swelling? Was it pierced too “deeply”?
The left piercing is, of course, a paragon of virtue, as far as piercings go. It’s laying down, it hasn’t bled, the piercing itself is clean and looks like it was done quite a while ago. Minimal swelling.
Which, of course, makes the fact that the right one won’t lay down all the more glaringly obvious to me.
Oh, well. It’s kind of fun to push it down and watch it rise back up again.
I’ll probably end up having the piercer put an eyebrow bar in it when I go in next week for my tattoo.
