Hello my name is Joshua. I got my nipples pierced 3 days ago. I'm a little concerned. Its nothing major but u can see the barbell in my left nipple more than u can see the barbell in the right nipple. Can it be that my name nipples are swelling differently or is it that my piercer messed up on making it even?

Hello Joshua,
It is hard to say, without seeing the previous form that your nipples had. In this case, it appears that the piercings could be better matched, and that the right nipple piercing is deeper at the outside edge. Consider taking it out to have it corrected by your piercer if it does not settle in to a look that is attractive to you.
