So I got 16g hollow piercing needles. I thought that the 16g jewelry should fit easily into the hole of the needle, but that's not the case. The jewelry doesn't really fit. I don't think that even the thread of the jewelry fits into the needle. Am I supposed to get 14g needles if I'm going to use 16g jewelry?
Also, how long should I wait to attempt to re-pierce my second lobe holes? I got the needle through but couldn't get the jewelry in so it should close up pretty quickly.
