I recently got a vertical nape piercing done by a very reputable piercer. He used a surface bar, and so far all is well as far as healing goes (today is day three). I’ve had no sign of rejection, and just a little redness. Will it heal properly since it is a vertical piercing? I mostly see horizontal piercings, but my piercer did mark my neck and checked for movement when I turned my head and stretched in different directions.

While the traditional placement for a nape piercing is horizontal, there should be no reason that a vertical wouldn’t heal just as well. It sounds like your piercer did a good job by checking movement and placement, now its up to you to make sure you take good care of it.

Since it is a less common placement you should send some pictures in. We love to see that sort of stuff.
