Q: I had my nipples pierced in my 30s. I had removed both because one had ripped. I regret doing it and I want to get them pierced again. Is it possible to redo the piercing through the scar tissue?
A: Losing piercings that you love is always heartbreaking. The good news is that a skilled piercer (make sure they know what they’re doing!) should have no problem re-piercing your nipples for you. The piercings have been closed long enough to be fully healed, it sounds like, which would be the first challenge. The other issue is that the piercer may need to go just a millimeter or so above or below the site of the original piercings in order to avoid going straight through the scar tissue. This would depend on how much of it there is remaining and how much of an obstacle it presents. Again, you just want to be sure that the piercer is skilled and knowledgeable about doing re-pierces. Happy piercing!
Q: I am a petite woman with my belly button pierced. All the rings I buy are too big, what is the best size for me.
A: This is challenging to answer without knowing what sizes you’ve already tried. Do you have a measuring card or calipers to measure the length of the barbell from one end to the other? If not, many navel rings are either 7/16” (11mm) or 3/8” (10mm). You could try searching out ones that are smaller in single-millimeter increments. That, however, can start to get pricey if you have to order quite a few. Your best bet is probably to go see a piercer and get your jewelry sized. They should be able to fit you with a belly ring that you love and that is the perfect size for your piercing, as well as putting it in for you. Best of luck!
