I wanted to wear them as my standard earrings during the week, but I guess they aren't made for that. I took them out whenever I showered and one day noticed the piercing holes looking dark. Eventually I realized it was a pus that could be squeezed out. I think this is not uncommon with certain types of earrings and metals. My ears quickly went back to normal after not wearing them for awhile.
Soo, they are super cute and I wanted to wear them all the time! But heads up that that may not be possible.
