Do not buy body jewelry from Hot Topic!
I just want to second the other post about not buying Hot Topic body jewelry…I bought some “6g” pinchers and couldn’t get them in my ear; they were too big. I’d been stretched to 6g for months, so there shouldn’t have been a problem, unless of course they mislabeled their body jewelry. I tried to return/exchange them and they refused to take them back even though it was their fault for selling me “6g” pinchers that were actually larger than that!
Also the amount of products that they sell that are safe to put in your ears, in my opinion at any point, is little to none. Almost everything is acrylic there.46
