Default Piercings: Can I get into visit using clear retainers?

I have a nose piercing, I was able to order clear retainers off of Amazon.Will they allow that in a visit? I am still waiting to get approved but I want to know before I make my first visit and drive 2 hours. My boyfriend is in MCI- Shirley.

If it doesn't set off a metal detector, then you can get in. I assume yours are plastic, so you should be fine.

Iím glad it worked! The fact you needed to change your nose piercing makes me feel like my boyfriend is in a day care not a jail. They are the most LAID BACK Iíve ever seen lol. I have my nose pierced as well and i had been told horror stories of visiting and what Iíd have to go thru (from people who visited other jails) regarding clothing, jewelry all that. It was nothing like i expected i just walked in , went thru the metal detector (jewelry and all) , the guard came out and used his hand metal detector thing and then i just told them who i was there for, filled out paper work and then sat in the same room to wait for him to come down. Not to mention you can see the visiting area from the waiting room lol i was so surprised!


Plus i havenít changed my nose ring since i got it pierced because Iím afraid to

Default Hmm...

You were able to get through with the one you got it pierced with ? If that's the case I'm not changing it again it's a pain to get it in and out !

I was! Iím not sure if other jails have different rules when it comes to piercings but they never told me to take any of them out. I also donít get to physically touch him , our visits are between glass and thru a phone so that might be why they never gave me a problem. Next time you go bring a plastic one with you just in case they make you take out the other one

County jails are probably a lot more laid-back about (some) visiting regulations than state prisons and Feds (jails usually have no-contact visits i.e. behind glass). It also may depend on the individual facility.
