You may choose to hide your labret piercing for a number of reasons. Perhaps you are applying for a job in a professional atmosphere that does not condone facial piercings. Or maybe you are trying to hide your piercing from your parents or an individual who would not approve of such a body modification. Regardless of your reasoning, it is possible to conceal your labret piercing for short or long periods of time.

Things You'll Need

  • Clear labret piercing retainer
  • Cotton swabs
  • Spray bottle filled with water
  • Sea salt
  • Metal labret piercing stud
  • Hand soap
  • Resealable plastic bag

Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.

Carefully spray your labret piercing once using a spray bottle filled with water. This will allow you to remove the body jewelry with ease and will prevent tearing of the delicate skin that is around the pierced hole.

Put the old labret piercing into a safe and clean place. Usually a jewelry box is a good place for it, but you can also put it in a resealable plastic bag if you simply cannot find an appropriate place that is clean.

Remove the clear labret piercing retainer from its packaging and lay it onto a clean surface.

Pour out the water that is in the spray bottle and refill it with warm water.

Add sea salt to the bottle and shake it to ensure that most of the salt has dissolved.

Spray the clear labret retainer liberally with the salt mixture; also spray the hole in which the retainer will go.

Unscrew the tip of the retainer and gently place the main part of the jewelry into your piercing and screw on the top of the retainer.
