    If you think you are having a problem, you should go back to your piercer and have them take a look at it.

    It is normal. Depending on the length of the bar, the amount of skin and any swelling the bar may not extend further than the length of the pierced hole. Depending on how thick your skin is and such will probably depend on if you can feel the bar through your skin. Yes, go consult the studio you had it done at if anything looks odd or gets infected.

    In a way, it really depends on how easily it is to feel the bar. If the piercing was pierced shallow, you will be able to feel it with just gently rubbing your fingers across the skin.  After just a few days of having the piercing, I wouldn't worry about it too much, but if you are concerned, definitely have a body piercer look at it and evaluate it. He/she may feel it was pierced shallow, and may opt to re-pierce.
