Can you take the backing off a new piercing?
For some piercings, the screw back may actually be in the front. Once the screw backing has been unscrewed, you can safely remove the earring from your piercing.
Why are butterfly back earrings bad?
The back of traditional butterfly earring slides onto the post, often making the earrings too tight. This is bad for all ear types but especially sensitive ears. Earrings that pinch against the skin of your earlobe trap air and the area becomes moist and prone to infection.
Are you supposed to sleep with earrings in?
Is it OK? The general rule of thumb is to avoid sleeping in earrings, with one exception: when you get a new piercing. But if your piercings are older, avoid wearing earrings made with nickel overnight, as well as large hoops and dangle or drop-style earrings. These could increase your risk of painful side effects.
How much does it cost to put screw backs on earrings?
Cost varies depending on the type of post and the metal. On average, the price starts at $35 for a pair of sterling silver posts, and goes up accordingly based on metal type. Screwbacks are double the price, as they need to come with their specific backs in order to work.

Grab hold of the back of the piercing with the tweezers. Gently but firmly pull upward on the labret stud. You may have to be very firm with it so that it will come loose. It may hurt or even bleed.
Why wont my earrings unscrew?
A pair of latex or rubber gloves will usually provide enough grip to unscrew a stuck piercing ball. Make sure the jewelry is completely dry and grab the ball with your gloved hand. The bit of extra torque from the rubber gloves might provide just the right amount of traction to get your ball unstuck.
