Afte taking some crappy photos of my piercing i took some good ones. The story is this: my piercing is crooked, and it's higher on one side, you can see in the first photo that it's really low, and i wanted to stretch my piercing but im afraid that i may rip the lower part of my nose (that little bridge LOL) so, wht do you think. Also, i don't care about it being crooked, i just want to stretch it. Thanks!

Those are good photos?

Do you have any friends or someone around that can take photos for you?

I am not a pro, but it looks like the diameter of the ring might be slightly too small for your piercing. Making it look slightly askew. You may be able to bend it slightly and the jewelry might sit more flush.

As far as telling whether or not the piercing itself is crooked someone would have to look up there with a flashlight or you would have to get someone to take some much better in focus photos from both sides.

Can't see from the pictures but just a word of warning, when you stretch a piercing, if it is crooked it becomes much more noticable the bigger you go.

I would recommend removing the piercing, having it done properly, then stretching it. The angle of your piercing is pretty severe and stretching it will not fix your problems.

There's no point in trying to stretch it IT WONT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Listen to Cale, she knows what she's talking about.

I'm not a Pro, but I agree with Cale as well. Stretching a crooked piercing won't make it straight.
