I have 10 holes in my face.

Nose
5 holes in one ear
4 in the other.

I’ve had these for years, I can’t imagine not having them in!

I am keeping my nose stud, 6g ears, and ear piercings in for the wedding. If you look on etsy you can find some really pretty, classy plugs.

My ears are streched to 00 as well. I will be leaving them for our wedding later this year. I figure I have plenty of time to find “fancy” plugs.

Why not wear your hair down to cover your ears?

I can lead you to sites with really fancy plugs, including custom jewelry makers that can help you create what you’re looking for.

 

I’ll be leaving all piercings in, and I have both my lobes and conches stretched.

 

If you have problems with your nostril piercings acting up, the most common reasons;

-material of the jewelry (go for implant grade titanium). I wear Neometal, that my nostrils were measured for. There’s no screw back to spin or extra bar length to create friction. Also wearing a stud, rather than a ring will help as well

-improper care. Don’t use alcohols, hydrogen peroxide, facewash, etc. Do routine sea salt soaks

Also, if you have any type of hypotrophic scarring pop up, tea tree oil helps it go away.

I have piercings too and I am not quite ready to take them out for good. I’ve been taking them out for work and school, but I still want them. I’m leaving my nose and lip ring in for the wedding but I’ll be wearing tiny jewelry to appease the older members of the family.

Etsy has some super cute plugs you could wear for your wedding! I would check them out before you decide to take them out.

Etsy have gorgeous plugs!

Also, what is your nose ring/stud made of? Have you tried titanium or gold?

If I have anything other than gold or titanium in my nose piercing it flares right up!

Also, try some betadine/bepanthum or Lucas’ Pawpaw treatment works wonders too Smile

I had my lip pierced while in college and LOVED it. Now that I’m an elementary teacher I can’t wear it.  I miss it so much!  I wonder what my kids would do if they saw me wearing the ring…or worse – their parents!?  I want to re-pierce it after the wedding kind of because I miss it so much!  And maybe just wear it on the weekends?

Woo Hoo!!! Glad you found some options that you like and you can keep your ears! I’ve only got typical ear piercings and a tongue stud but I love them.
