How long can I leave my piercing empty before it will close up?

If a piercing is still healing it will begin to close immediately as soon as the jewellery is removed.

For a healed piercing, there is no time exact time limit as to how long a piercing will remain open when it’s been left empty. It could be years, it could be a day. It completely depends on the individual circumstances. The only way to guarantee a piercing remains open is to wear jewellery at all times.
