I had a monroe piercing for about 3.5 years and retired it in September because, as sad as I am about it, I was tired of taking it out for work, interviews, etc. Question for any of you who have had a monroe or similar piercing in that region: how long did it take for it to close up? Mine is mostly closed, I'm assuming, but I can still visibly see a small hole and feel the hole from the inside of my mouth. Or will it never close up? I don't really mind it now, but I'm just curious.
