With the upcoming holidays just around the corner, there are more than a few of us that have body piercings that need to be concealed from relatives and family members that do not share in our enthusiasm for body art. Although it may be impossible to completely conceal our piercings from the prying eyes of those that know us best, it is possible to drastically reduce their overall visibility.
The most common way to conceal body piercings is by using retainers. Retainers are clear, soft silicone pieces of body jewelry that feature small, clear 0-rings (or donuts) that secure the piece in place. Unless someone gets extremely close to you, retainers will usually provide concealment while keeping the hole from closing. This is especially important for tongue piercings, as some people’s tongue piercings will close within minutes of taking their tongue jewelry out. Retainer body jewelry is available for a modest price and come in styles that fit nose piercings, lip piercings, navel piercings, nipples and tongue piercings.
