sorry about this second hand Q but with Initiation and all that nowdays, take a while to get her own thread going, anyhow: She got her ear pierced about 4 months ago and apparently it hasn't healed yet. All i know is that it's a ring through the top of her ear, I have no idea what it's called (and she can't remember). I asked her if she'd been using sea salt and all that, cleaning it daily and not playing with it, etc. She said she had been doing what the person who pierced her ear said to do (she got some saline solution from them). But, she wants to know how to undo the ring because it's starting to get really irritating. It sounds like just a standard ring you'd get in the top of your ear (ones with the ball on it and such). From what I know all you have to do is grasp the ball and like, pull the actual ring bit, somehow? I'd rather not throw out my uncertain knowledge on the issue to my friend. So is that like, correct? Just how to undo that sort of ring?
