That's actually extremely common, it's called rejection. Happens a lot on eyebrows and other surface piercings, i.e. ones that don't go through two parallel pieces of skin (like a lobe, lip, or nostril).

I had two eyebrow rings reject. They didn't get to the stage of yours, I took them out when they started getting really thin. My piercer told me they can just keep piercing it, and the scar tissue from the previous rejection can eventually make enough resistance to keep the piercing in. I just gave up after 2.
As I am sure any cat owner will be able to tell you,
someone else putting you in a box is entirely different
from getting into a box yourself.
