Twice I've tried to pierce my nipples, and ended up removing the bars due to increased pain over time. It hurt more after ten weeks than right after the piercing. I was wondering if my body was rejecting the piercings due to my emotional state, and would like to know if anyone has lost a piercing due to losing control of your emotions, for example depression or mania rather than lack of care, infection or allergic reaction. I understand everyone heals differently but I think this had more to do with personal change and spiritual trauma. I'm going to try again with a new perspective on the situation and lots of loving meditation. Healing emotionally will allow for empowerment, acceptance of self and a positive reaction to the deeply personal act of body changes- I really want this piercing and it was done correctly with proper metals. Maybe I wasn't ready due to these personal issues. It just didn't feel right and I tried to rush it, and my husband wasn't being very supportive. Any thoughts on this topic? I know it can be a beautiful experience and maybe I would heal properly in a better emotional landscape. Please tell me your stories.

Hi Skybeyond, welcome to the forum.

I've not had something reject from what i would say is specifically an emotional cause, but there have been times when i have been run down and that impacts on healing, or indeed the time hasn't been right. For me, listening to your body is more than simple physical feedback, it's understanding where you are physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. There have definitely been times when i have not paid attention to that, and a modification, or failure or one, has enlightened me.

Take the time to listen, and let instinct guide you.
It is also worth bearing in mind that some people (myself included) just can't heal nipple piercings, however they are done.

The situation which springs to mind for me is a suspension where i couldn't get off the ground. I knew i was in physically very bad shape, run down and tired, but decided to try anyway. During the process i saw the reality of my situation and found the will to change. I've lost 6 1/2 stone since, and hope that failed suspension has added many years to my life.

I've had some weird issues with my ears. I've been in the process of stretching them up, and I find that when I'm in some strange emotional places, my ears will start aching or itching, or when I lay down, I can keep my head comfortable on the plugs. I've also had two piercings completely reject when I was going through a really bad break up and was in a horrible place.
I agree with you, that these things can happen as a result of emotional trauma. I believe that any modification I do is a huge piece of me and connected to me.
I hope everything worked out for you <3

These things have hardened in our soft pink bellies.

Ive had piercings either flat out reject or flare on me severely in the midst of emotional turmoil. I can tell you that when Im severely stressed or worn down my piercings dont do as well.

I use piercings as a way to deal with extreme stress. The initial endorphin rush makes me calm and happy. I also enjoy amd love stretching, so the healing process tends to bring me out of that bad emotional state. Then the jewelry is there as a trophy of overcoming the stressful situation.
