How long can I take out my body piercing jewelry?

Taking out body piercing jewelry

Occasionally you may need to remove your body piercing jewelry. Ear piercings tend to stay open longer than other body piercings when the body piercing jewelry is removed. Body piercings such as tongue piercings, belly button piercings, and nose piercings need to have a retainer inserted. Retainers are available in clear and flesh colors, which minimize their appearance.
