If the end of my cartilage piercing bar doesn't unscrew

How else might it come off?

I've screwed and screwed. It turns but never gets to the point of coming off

Are you trying the front or the back? Is it flat back?

If it's a flat back it might be a insertion piercing, like you'd get in a cheek, neck or wrist. You have to sort of move it like getting a coat hanger out of a woollen jumper when you don't want to ruin the neck!

Perhaps try pulling? Sometimes they don't come off clean from unscrewing but get caught on the threads.

Are you unscrewing to the left?
I would try and get to a piercers as it's possible the screw bit could be stuck?

It's got a ball on each end. I'm trying to unscrew the sparkly front ball. Can't reach the back one as well

Will keep twiddling. Been trying to get to the piercer for weeks but never can when they're open

Have you got any latex gloves? Should help you grip the ball.

GrimDamnFanjo Sun 24-Sep-17 15:24:58

Are you sure the front unscrews?

Haint Sun 24-Sep-17 20:41:46

Well no Grim I'm not. it certainly turns. And turns and turns but never comes off

Might try going in from the back but the back is quite tucked in to the crease and hard to access - will try the latex gloves to grab the back ball {snigger}

One of them isn't turning, surely?

They are a bastard to sort.
If it's what I'm think the it's the bar in between you need to hold still then turn the ball the rest of the way.

If what I'm thinking is right...

Is it an industrial piercing? I had to get someone else to do it for me!
