Yes, for the most part. Most industrials are done at a 14 gauge, and because it is done in the cartilage where there is more blood circulation than, say, a lobe piercing, it has a much greater chance of completely closing back up. The hole might leave a small scar, and it also depends on how long you've had the industrial in. I've had an industrial for 3 years and the other week I took it out for a only a few days and it was almost impossible to get it back in. I thought I was going to have to repierce it. It also depends on your body, though, everyone is different.

It can take up to 12 weeks for an Industrial piercing to close up. Possibly even longer, as long as you clean the area with salen solution it will heal up just fine, DO NOT turn, the piercing it will do that by daily wear. And DO NOT take the piercing out, the skin will grow back together very quickly and cause the punctures to close, meaning you just paid for a piercing, that is no good anymore.

1 year after having it done, you can take the jewellery out for an 8 hour period without fear of the piercing closing up.

Nope. It will only close up if you have an infection

If you have had the piercing long enough that it does not close up on it's own then you are really out of luck.

It really depends on the type of piercing and long you've had the piercing.

if its a fresh piercing the hole will close up pretty quickly, if you've had it for a while the hole will probably take a while to close up

Like any hole in the body that wasn't there by design the piercing will close if jewellery is not kept in the piercing. The speed at which the piercing closes will be dictated by the period of time the jewellery has been kept in the piercing, the longer jewellery is worn the longer it will take for the piercing to close up.

It depends on how long you have had the piercing and at what gauge, it may close over weeks or months then it may never close. It's nothing to worry about.

It depends on how fast your body heals, and how long you have had the piercing. The longer you have had the piercing, the longer it will take to close. This is true for all piercings.

User Avatar

yes it is ok to take it out. but don't leave it out for too long because it will close up. i have mine done and the longest i have had it out without it closing up is up to 5 days

It depends on where it is pierced. The lobes can take about 3 months to completely close up, where your cartilage can take 6 months to even a year to completely close up. It also depends on how long you have had the piercing. A piercing that you've had for years can take years to close (in my personal experience).

Yes. After a couple hours.

Honestly, I have had my labret piercing for about 7 months now and I took it out for about 4 hours for a class. At the end when I tried to put the piercing back in it hurt. The hole were the piercing was seemed to have tightened up. It took a few hours for my piercing to feel like it usually does. So I would guess that a labret piercing would close up kinda fast

The length of time you have the piercing for will be three times that period for the piercing marks to close up and disappear.

No. Go talk to your doctor if you want the piercing to close up that badly. Over time the piercing will shrink and will become unnoticeable

Your question isn't very clear, but I will give it a shot. The time it takes for a navel piercing to close or "heal up" depends on how long you have had the piercing. The longer the piercing has been in place with jewellery, the longer it will take for the piercing to close with the jewellery removed. Generally if you have had the piercing with jewellery over a year the piercing can take several months to shrink down to the point where you can't put jewellery into the piercing any longer. If you have only had the piercing for a few months then it can take a few weeks for the piercing to close.

If the piercing is 24 hours old it will close quite quickly (generally a few days to knit up), the longer the piercing has been kept with the jewellery in it the longer it will take to heal up. So if you don't like the piercing, get the jewellery out fairly quick and you should be good in a few days.

It is not common for piercings, even new ones, to close up after only being out for 7 hours.

User Avatar

If you've had the piercing for only four weeks then yes, it will close relatively quickly. My lip piercing was two years old and closed up in only a few days, leaving a small scar. If you don't want it to close but do want it to go unnoticed look into piercing retainers.

User Avatar

No, it can close up if you don't keep something in it.

User Avatar

Well simply put the piercing will close, any time you get a piercing and remove the jewellery a few days after the piercing has been done the body will attempt to repair the damamge by closing the piercing. Jewellery should not be removed for any reason other than to get rid of the piercing, once the jewellery is out and then reinserted at a later date, the fine new tissue that was trying to form now becomes scar tissue instead of the fine fistula that makes up the piercing tissue.

As long as it takes. Not every piercing will close within moments of taking the jewellery out, there are other aspects that come into play. Length of time you had the piercing, the size of the jewellery, healing issues all these affect how fast a piercing will close. So as long as the jewellery is out the body will deal with it as it sees fit.

User Avatar

It takes as long as it takes once a piercing has healed it depends on haow long you leave the jewellery out, if you are done with the piercing it can take a few days to several weeks for the piercing to actually close once it's a seasoned piercing (seasoned being over a year old).
