Hello - I noticed there are at least two different types of surface bar (the staple bar and ones with 2 and 10 o’clock angles \_/). Is there a major difference between the two? I have my cleavage pierced with the more angled surface bar and am doing my best to lower the rejection rate, however I am concerned because I’ve read alot about surface piercings being done with curved barbells and how terrible they are. I greatly appareciate any help you can provide me!

The ones that are at an angle closer to 45 degrees than 90 degrees are intended for curving surfaces. The end goal of the rise of a surface piercing is to exit the body perpendicularly. On most fairly flat areas of the body the 90 degree bends are preffered. For some curved surface though the 45 degrees are more suited. I will say though that 95% of all 45 degree rise surface piercings I have seen used would have better been suited for a 90 degree rise. The times when 45 degree is more suitable are few and far between, but it’s important for piercers to be able to adapt to these different needs.
