Of course you got your piercing so you could show it off, but sometimes you may be in a situation where having a piercing is less than welcome. Perhaps you have a job interview or an audition or even some minor surgery, and having that tongue piercing just won't cut it. A piercing retainer can come to the rescue by replacing your jewelry with a section of acrylic or stainless steel that holds the shape of your piercing without calling attention to itself. Don't think you have to sacrifice attractiveness just because you're replacing your jewelry with a retainer! Many of these pieces are just as lovely as your existing metal jewelry. The only difference is that you can barely see them!
