Uh I would hope that you would be smart enough to take it out (not that you aren't smart) just saying its pretty dangerous with flipping and all that stuff. Just take it off and avoid damage to your skin and anything else
It would be a good idea so that you would not get injured. Freak accidents sometimes happen. You would not want to have it tear your lip if you fall or hit your face. Look into finding the plastic pegs that can keep the hole open. It would be less damaging then a regular one if something happened.
It would be a great Idea to take them out FOR GOOD. I mean girl, why? That's not attractive for male or female it's just gross. I mean think about people when there eating that's just the grosses thing any one could do ( I mean pierce them selves
