Don’t want my new cartilage piercing anymore?

I got a snug piercing little over a week ago but it’s just been a new type of painful, uncomfortable, swollen, miserable hell.. and i have a high pain tolerance too (i have a big sternum and rib tattoos). I’m going to take it out but i’m not sure what is the best route. should i just go back to the shop and have the piercer take it out or is it fine to do myself and let it heal on its own?

    Welcome to the world of cartilage piercings my friend. I was in agony for months with mine. Stuck it out though and lived to tell the tale. If you're dead set on getting it out then I would say to go back to the piercer so they can sterilize everything and hopefully lessen the chances of infection.
