  • no none of my piercings ever set off the metal detectors.... but if they did could you imagine how embarrassing it would be to have you unmentionables pierced? lol

  • The underwire in my bra does... Just open your mouth, they'll run a hand held one over you anyway. no worries.

  • I doubt it unless they've gotten better at catching things since March before last. I walked through just fine with a belly ring and a metal plate, screws and pins in my right leg. Didn't set it off. A hand held detector will catch it though.
