This may not seem wise, but I didn't want to be pierced with a retainer so I requested having a high-grade steel 16g labret at my initial jewelry. My piercer said he'd give it a go, but to come back if I needed any adjustment.
How safe is it to have a labret-style (flat back) barbell in a septum? Is this okay for healing? What would be the negative aspect of using this? Thanks.
