Can You Get Nipple Piercings if You Have Breast İmplants? Can you get nipple piercings if you have breast implants? I just got my nipples pierced and I was wondering if it would be possible to get breast implants.
I’m not sure what you mean by ‘have’ breast implants. If you mean, if you already have them, the answer is yes you can get nipple piercings. If you mean, after getting your nipples pierced could you get breast implants, then the answer is yes too.

It is possible to pierce your nipples whether you have breast implants or not. All nipples are different, so it’s important to speak to a professional piercer before getting pierced. They can assess the size and shape of your nipples and let you know if they would be suitable for piercing.
If you have breast implants and are considering nipple piercings, it’s likely that you’ll need to start with larger gauge jewelry than a person without breast implants. The gauge will depend on the implant size and your nipple tissue, so it’s best to check with your piercer before getting pierced.
“If you have breast implants and want to get your nipples pierced, it’s not a problem as long as you go to a professional piercer,” says Sabrina Tee, owner of Body Electric Tattoo in Los Angeles.
Tee says that the piercer will make sure that you don’t have a saline implant (which is liquid) before piercing your nipples—because if the piercing went through the implant, it would leak.
Otherwise, she says, “It’s just like getting any other piercing.”
