Navigate: FAQ Home Page > Piercing and Tattoos > Is it safe to take out nipple pierces
and how would i go about removing the jewlery
Usually pierces are secured by twisting. I have not removed a nipple pierce so I don't know for sure, but you can try twisting them and see if they come unscrewed. If not go back to the shop that put them In and they will take them out.
You have LESS of a chance of getting infected if you take them out now. If you leave them there is a risk of scar formation or later infections. People seem to be able to breast feed after piercing just fine.
