Stuck belly bar 😫

I have my belly pierced I’ve been trying to change it, but the ball on it is just so tight and annoying! I don’t have pliers or gloves. I don’t understand how it’s so tight, I was the one who put it on and I can’t even get it off? I’m dying to change it since the gem has fallen out somehow and it looks really ugly, otherwise I’d just leave it. Please help. 😂😢💘x
