An unsatisfied client is worse than anything else I could imagine.
It's a rare occurance, but shit happens.
right now I'm this guy right here ->Bang%20Head
On Friday I did a nostril piercing for a client that didnt end up too great.
The jewelry works it's way up as she pulls facial expressions etc.
I believe this to be from my fault of piercing it a tad vertically.
There is no worse feeling I can endure than an unhappy client.
I feel Dunce asking for advice on this, but anyone got some suggestions?
Should I ask her to remove it? Change the jewelry after some time to a 45, 90 degree or pig tail? custom bend?
Suggestions would be appreciated...

If its as you say, a fault in the 'piercing', then bite the bullet and you re do it.

its Pointless trying to correct it with other things...because even if you find a piece of jewelry that will work...theyre stuck with limited option, so its still wrong :/

yeah, do what he said! :)

I know it's a bit of a knock to your ego, but hell I'd respect a piercer that admitted they'd made a mistake on me and then offered to correct said mistake. Part of being a great piercer, in my eyes at least, is being able to admit that you're wrong and then improve. You can't fire out a perfect piercing on every client.

Always the best idea if you make a mistake is to admit it to the client, apologise, and then explain to them the best way to fix the situation. If the situation dictates you remove the piercing because its never gonna work, then do that and offer to re-pierce at  a later date, free of charge. You'll lose a little $ and take a hit to the old pride, but you may very well save yourself a client and your integrity will be intact.

Mistakes happen, and at the very least, since you seem to know what went wrong, you can chalk it up to a learning experience.

thanks guys.
comments appreciated.
It has been removed and I will be doing it free of charge at a later date.
This is my first topic post, although i read all the forums like crazy without commenting much, but respectable opinions seem to give this site a very "homely"or "family"feel.
I keep this site open in a tab for 8 hours a day, 6 days a week - sometimes more.

I'm glad you removed it and your client was understanding. :) Good luck with it the second time around!
