Cardi B’s Body Rejected Her Chest Piercings And The Photos Are Brutal

When it comes to the collection of body art, no one in quarantine seems to be quite as productive as Cardi B. The “Press” rapper might be in quarantine like the rest of us but that hasn’t stopped her from getting multiple tattoos and some body bling. Back in June, the rapper revealed her painful effort to obtain two new daring dermal pieces.

Unfortunately, as cute as the lewk was, her body didn’t seem up for it.

The rapper recently shared a video on her Instagram Stories of her body rejecting her chest piercings.

In a graphic video shared to Cardi’s Instagram last week, at least one of the piercings can be seen being pushed out of her body and hanging from her skin. “This is how my piercing has been for the past four days,” she explained in the selfie video.

Back in June, Cardi shared her excitement over her dermal piercing process in a video posted to her Instagram page. The two new dermal piercings were placed in a vertical line down her chest. At the time she’d also opted to remove her top dermal piercing “I got to take this one off because this one is old,” she shared. “You all know I’ve been having this one for a long time, but whatever.”

It’s unknown why Cardi B’s piercing was rejected by her body.

According to Healthline, “Piercing rejection isn’t nearly as common as some other piercing complications, like infections, keloids, and dermatitis. When rejection does happen, it’s usually in a flat area of the body.” Even more, there is no specific reason for piercing rejections. They can range from genetics and skin tightness to jewlery shape and size. Weight changes and emotional stress can also be factors in the body’s rejection of piercings.

Here’s hoping Cardi B gets the dermal piercing she’d originally hoped for!
