Piercings though widely accepted nowadays are still considered a taboo especially in some educational institutions and workplaces. Also in some situations like an extended family gathering, it is also sometimes easier to hide unusual piercing than to be subject to glares, and a myriad of questions and comments about it. But such prejudice shouldn’t stop us from getting piercings to express ourselves. So go ahead and get a piercing but just cleverly hide it at places where it becomes necessary. You can remove your piercings at times when the situation demands it, and wear it again later. But it can be tiring to remove your piercings on a daily basis and it is also not advisable to do so especially during the healing process. So it is easier to just try and cover them by minimizing their appearance.
- Ear piercing is accepted among women but some forms of extreme ear piercings or multiple piercings are still not. Men with ear piercings are still sometimes subject to discrimination at conservative institution and organizations.
The easiest way to cover ear piercing among women is to let your hair down and cover your ears with it. If you don’t have hair that is long enough then you can wear clear jewellery that is made of materials like quartz or glass as they are visible to the naked eye only on close inspection. You could also try wearing flesh coloured plugs made of silicon or acrylic material to disguise the piercing. These coloured plugs are especially useful in cases of stretched ears to emulate the look of normal earrings. If you are in a hurry or stuck in situation with no access to any of the jewellery mentioned earlier, then just grab a scarf or a hat and cover it up.
- Tongue piercing is a very new trend and is mostly frowned upon in most cultures. The visibility of the tongue piercing depends on where it is placed on the tongue. The further back it is it is less visible. The easiest way to conceal it is by wearing a clear stud or jewellery that is the colour of the flesh of your tongue. The lesser you play with your piercing the lesser attention you will bring to it.
These suggestions are meant to be used only after the piercing is completely healed, and not on fresh piercings or during the healing period.
