I just stretched from 4g to 2g a couple of days ago. Last night one of my plugs fell out while I was sleeping and the hole looks super scabby now. I think I should leave it out and let it heal but I kind of want a second opinion to be sure? Thank you!
yep. either leave it out or put back in 4g/6g plugs in glass or a safe metal.

Number 4 is bolded because it’s a thing we get on awful mods a lot. “my ___ is swollen. why?” Nobody has any idea if you don’t provide enough info. There are at least 10 reasons whatever it is could be having problems. I know it’s hard with asks to provide all the info because of the character limit, but there is none on FB, so there is no reason to not provide info.
2. I was young and stupid, and my boyfriend at the time fancied himself a tattoo artist. Like I said, young and idiotic, so I let him do it. In his bed. In his mom’s trailer. This was one of the many reasons I am now glad we aren’t together anymore. I am getting a real, professional cover up once I can afford it.
3. Blown out wonky lines, I have no idea what’s going on with that green, and the bottom swirl is just terrifying. You can’t really tell from the pic, but there’s a faint shadow all around the outline from ink that bled out.
