Okay I have some questions:-When I get it done can I have- 2 labret retainers put in to hide them from my school?-If I can, how discreet are the retainers?-How long to heal? (Even though the piercer will tell me)-Have you got a picture of a scaffolding piercing with retainers? May I see it (:-And a basic clear cleaning regime?Thankyous (: x
You could but it be best for a bar to be honest. Well retainers are clear and depending on your skin complexion it may be difficult or easy to detect. Industrials hurt I'm not going to lie. It look forever for mine to finally heal enough to wear i can lay on it. Your ear will throb and it will hurt like hell to touch it. The pain goes on for a couple of months. Sorry I have no pictures. For cleaning- Sea salt and warm water.
Im pretty sure you can have retainers for your industrial piercing if you get it done buuuuut you wont be able to put them in for a couple months cause industrials take a long time to heal. And like the person said below it really depends on your skin tone and what color retainer you buy. You shouldnt have a problem with the industrial though cause people cant see mine if I have my hair down. They take up to 1 year to fully heal. You can swap your piercings out after 3 months but beware it can close up on you if you have difficulty putting it in. You HAVE to wait 3 months before you can put retainers in. Industrials are 14g piercings so make sure your retainers are the right gauge. Your ear will be sore for a long time dear. Mine didnt hurt while getting it pierced cause I have a high pain tolerance but my ear was sore and bruised afterwards. The healing process is very delicate and your ear will be sore for a couple months. Make sure you get the piercing on the ear you dont sleep on. I use a 50/50 solution of Betadine and distilled water. Other piercers have different cleaning regimes though, so listen to your piercer. I always clean it with warm water and use a Q-tip to clean around the piercing. Then I put the cleaning solution on and twist the piercing around GENTLY so the solution will go into the cartilege. I do this 3 times a day and i will do it for a month. Industrials are really delicate piercings so always keep it clean :)
