    Default How long is it safe to leave peircings out for?

    I have a VCH and 2 nipple piercings, all done in early september last year, and all healed nicely. My question is, how long can I safely leave these piercings out for without losing them? Would it be safe for 2 or 3 hours?
    Forgive me if its a really naive question

    It really depends on the individual- Personally I can't leave any out for more than an hour, but some can for much much longer. Try it in stages of 20 minutes or so and see what the limit is for you.
    Hey!

    I have:
    10X lobes (4X at 10g; 3X cartilage (2X at 4g); tragus; bellybutton; tongue; center lip; eyebrow; microdermal on chest; 2 tattoos

    I want:
    another tragus; 1X horizontal hood.

    Person to person and piercing to piercing - they're all different. I left my PA out for 3 weeks once.

    Thanks guys, I think I may be better leaving them in then for now...

    can anyone recommend any VHC jewellery that can withstand "rougher" oral? I have a banana bar in at the moment and Im frightened of it tearing out lol

    would a bar closure ring be more appropriate?

    I like BCR's, but worry about the ball popping off

    I had one pop off my side lip piercing a few years ago and I think thats what worried me, though that said I think I had bit down on it at the time......

    I just had visions of the other half choking on a ball hehe
