...would you prefer to be buried (or cremated) with your jewelry?  Or would you prefer it to be removed?

I'm not sure why but I was thinking about this today...if I die w/all my piercings still intact...I can't decide if I'd want to leave them in my body or have them removed.  I suppose they'd end up staying on me b/c I doubt removing jewelry from a dead body is something my living family or a piercer would want to do.  Maybe the mortician does that. 
I'm thinking if you were to get cremated, they would have to remove the jewelry b/c it won't burn.  Or it would be a pile of ashes with CBRs and curved barbells mixed in.

Interesting question really- I wonder what the mortician does do... particularly during cremations.
 
As for me, I'm not bothered really, they can throw my body on a dump truck lol! Seriously, whatever my family wants to do. I carry a donor card so I'd like my body to help others as much as possible.

lol yeah, I doubt that "donating jewelry" would go over well.  Who would want jewelry that was in a dead person?  Zombie

If I were to have a funeral where people would look at my dead body I'd want my piercings in.  Because I'd want to look like I did while I was alive.

However, if I'm cremated I don't know?  I guess I don't really care.

i reckon i'd want to keep mine. i'd want to stay the way i've always been, and as i'd always been known. me without my piercings, just isn't me.

In ftw. I want to be embalmed and buried, so the cremation thing is no issue.

Hmmm... I guess I'll be dead. I don't really think I'll care. So I'm indifferent.

 Unless your jewellery has been removed for clinical reasons or because your family requested it it will be left intact.  trust me this is a subject i know about!
