Yes, for the most part. Most industrials are done at a 14 gauge, and because it is done in the cartilage where there is more blood circulation than, say, a lobe piercing, it has a much greater chance of completely closing back up. The hole might leave a small scar, and it also depends on how long you've had the industrial in. I've had an industrial for 3 years and the other week I took it out for a only a few days and it was almost impossible to get it back in. I thought I was going to have to repierce it. It also depends on your body, though, everyone is different.

How long does it take for an industrial to close up after a week of being pierced?

It can take up to 12 weeks for an Industrial piercing to close up. Possibly even longer, as long as you clean the area with salen solution it will heal up just fine, DO NOT turn, the piercing it will do that by daily wear. And DO NOT take the piercing out, the skin will grow back together very quickly and cause the punctures to close, meaning you just paid for a piercing, that is no good anymore.

After lip ring heals can it close up?

Like any hole in the body that wasn't there by design the piercing will close if jewellery is not kept in the piercing. The speed at which the piercing closes will be dictated by the period of time the jewellery has been kept in the piercing, the longer jewellery is worn the longer it will take for the piercing to close up.

How long does it take for an ear piercing to close up completely?

It depends on where it is pierced. The lobes can take about 3 months to completely close up, where your cartilage can take 6 months to even a year to completely close up. It also depends on how long you have had the piercing. A piercing that you've had for years can take years to close (in my personal experience).
