Very Shallow VCH Surface Piercing with Dangerously Long Jewelry (with photos)
September 7th, 2012
A woman wrote to me:
I got this yesterday. It doesn't look like the other piercings.
I'm afraid you have been given a very shallow hood surface piercing. You really should try to get your money back and you should take the jewelry out. It is definitely NOT safe to have such a small amount of skin pierced, especially with such a long bar. Even if you try to heal it, you're likely to find your body treats it as a splinter and ejects it. I would NOT trust the same piercer to redo it. Its abundantly clear that tea or she had absolutely no idea what to do or where to place a VCH piercing.
This page of my site clearly explains how the jewelry should go underneath your hood:
Where are you located? Perhaps I can suggest a competent professional in your area?
I marked your photo with what I call the "Inverted-V" of the hood. The jewelry should be coming out from underneath there….
The photo below shows proper placement for the VCH piercing and jewelry that fits well.
