    How to take my lip piercing out?

    This is kind of a stupid question, but since I haven't been able to figure it out yet, I thought I'd ask here...

    I got my lip pierced in July, and I've never taken it out or have undone it in any way. Why? Because I don't know how to get the ball unfastened from the ring. When I got it pierced, the piercer used plyers to get it on... so I'm wondering if I have to use plyers/a certain method to get it out?

    Any info would be great. Thanks [[img]/emoticons/emotion-5.gif[/img]]

    segmented?

    Pretty sure it's captive.

    You should be able to just push the ball off with you fingers. If not then you'll either have to go to the piercer to get it off, or buy some ring openers.

    Buy ring openers if you cannot easily get the ring open with your fingers. Having to go in every time to get the jewelry changed is annoying.

    I'm assuming that it is probably 14g. If so, then u shouldn't need pliers. Just put index finger above the bead gripping the ring and ur middle finger below. Then push with ur thumb. it will most likely pop right off.

    i know i'm gonna sound medieval here, but actually my sister had a 14g ring that the piercer had originally put on so tight it couldn't be removed using fingers... we used regular pliers with teflon tape wrapped around the tip (for both sanitary and comfort reasons).

    a lot of piercers will change jewellery for $5 or so, though.

    i've heard of piercers putting rings on very tight on purpose, so as to discourage ppl from taking them out too soon.

    if you can't do it by hand, try infernal machine's sugestion
