Exclamation Do I have to remove piercings to visit Rikers?

Im planning on visiting my boyfriend in Rikers Island sometime this week. I know all the searches are annoying and invasive,but is there anything specific i should know? I already researched what to and not to wear. The only thing im concerned about is i have two facial piercings and three body piercings. I doubt id have to remove my body piercings but what about the visible ones on my face? I can always flip my nose ring up,but i dont want it to seem like i was hiding something if it sets off the metal detector. Has anyone who visited rikers have any experience with this? If you dont live in NY and have visible piercings id also like to know how did everything go. Thanks

They probably consider piercings jewelry. To be safe I’d remove them. Better safe than sorry.
