Well it depends on how long the piercing has been in place. If it's new and you had a change of heart, the piercing will close up within a few days of the jewellery being removed. However the hole in the cartilage itself will remain open for several months. Cartilage doesnt heal like skin and once it's pierced or damages it can take and extreamely long time to heal.

There is no such piercing as a "cartridge piercing." There is, however, a cartilage piercing and they can be taken out. After you get your cartilage pierced, you need to wait 6 to 8 weeks for it to heal completely. If you decide to take it out, it will close up automatically in just a few weeks.

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).

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.

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

You can sleep with your cartilage piercing out after the ear is completely healed up. It takes about two months for the ear to completely heal.

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.

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

The more cartilage the more it will hurt. So, basically higher up the more it will hurt.

Its different for everyone. Some people can have piercings for years and have them close up in a few hours. But then again, yours may not close that quickly. If you have to take them out for work then just wear clear retainers in them.

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.

User Avatar

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

User Avatar

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.

The back hole of your ear closes up as soon as you take the ear ring off...

No way to speed that up really. Keep it dry and disinfected and out of the sun until it's healed.

An auricle piercing is a stud, barbell, or loop/ring piercing half way up the outer rim of your ear. Though I'm unsure if it's in the cartilage, or just the flesh.

Cartilage piercings heal really slowly. Depending on how your body accepted the piercing, it shouldn't close up with just one day out after a year of having it in. There's a chance it'll hurt a little when you put it back, though, so just be sure to neosporin it up! You should be fine or one day.

a septum piercing never closes completly, sorry

Well that's up to you, there is no correct or gender defined ear cartilage piercing nor is there any sexual orientation specific cartilage piercing. So what ever side looks good on you is the way to go. Here's the names of some of the piercings you may be interested in. Helix or Vertical Helix, down further on the ear rim it's a Scapha piercing, closer to the front of the face on the ear rim it's a Helix root piercing.

I heard you could put like a lemon. or another fruit (opened up) on the opened piercing

User Avatar

Yes. After a couple hours.

User Avatar

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