You have industrial problems too? Or just the healing process sucked? I've been thinking that I should probably take mine out long before my wedding to see if my keloid goes down..but I love the piercing itself I'm going on 2 years now and it still gives me a trouble. The healing was really rough though. I swear if it could get caught on something, it would (and still will). My most recent helix was a nightmare though. The piercer chose a back that was far too small and a post far too short for the inevitable swelling, and one day I realized that it was actually inside my ear. Couldn't unscrew the earring, the piercer had jammed the threading of the screw when she put it in. So I had to go back to the shop and they had to rip the whole earring through my ear. Good times. They sent me home with a larger, longer earring because I was too stubborn to just let it heal.
