How To: Insert and remove captive bead rings

Insert and remove captive bead rings

These rings are so frustrating. This video is a great tutorial showing you to put it on different places on your body.

Captive bead rings are a common style of body jewelry that can be really irritating to insert and remove if you have never done it before. Just make sure you line up one of the dimples of the bead with the edge of one side of the ring, and then push the second dimple right into the ring and you have done it. Not too hard but takes a bit of practice, especially on hard to reach places that you can't see very well.

I have a 16g CBR for my eyebrow, but I cannot for the life of me get the bead in. I got the ring into the piercing just fine, but it seems impossible to get it into the gap so I can put it in. I tried having my brother help me, but he couldn't get it in, either. I have a variety of tools that I've tried using to help, but to no avail. How can I get the bead in while the ring is actually inside me?

You honestly will just have to put it in and just play with it until the bees sets in. I know it's different with your brow versus your ear but for me I had the same problem until I got to a 6 gauge in my ear because the beed was different try looking online at kings body jewelry and look for that ring that has a beed that looks like it's spring loaded and you will have an easier time.

I developed a keloid on my helix piercing and Ii was able to take the ball out, but I'm having trouble taking the ring out because the space is too small. What should I do?
