I guess it depends on the individual, I've got a high pain threshold so none of my lip piercings hurt at all. Sure I felt a prick (arf!) but the pain is nothing you cannot handle.

If you do get one, ensure that the piercer is qualified. Unless you are allergic to titanium, the aftercare depends on how well you take care of it. You should really avoid smoking or drinking alcohol during the 3-4 months of primary healing, also avoid touching/playing with it as well as avoid putting make-up near the piercing too.

Hope that helps. ^.^


Gasp! I luffs you! Yeah, that helps so thank you.
Oh crap, then I'm screwed. No alcohol or touching will be challenging for me if I get it done but I don't mind a little pain. How big are the gages on yours? <3

:D I had a few sneaky drinks when mine were healing but I cleaned them like a mofo when I got home!
All of my lip piercings are 14g.

I'll just use my outrageous genius and use...a curly straw. *imagine a straw in a vodka bottle* Oh yeah. *lame* lol Actually I'm pretty good about that stuff but my body is really sensitive to that kind of stuff so I get really worried about infections and stuff.

What would be a good starting gage I wonder. I know the bigger the gage the smaller the hole but a start hole should be big since it'll be swollen for awhile, right? X:



I'm curious, though I probably won't get one due to the fact I can barely take a needle in the arm but, can you change piercings after the 3-4 month healing? And would it scab over if you take it out too early?? Also, what happens if it starts bleeding suddenly? Does that happen? So many questions


I don't mind needles as long the doctor isn't trying to stab me like last time. (mumble) Bastard...

I think you can change the piercings after that long, I changed my studs after a couple weeks and it was fine. I heal pretty fast though so I can't say it's safe for all. If it starts bleeding I think you should clean it and put it back in so it can heal all over again. Shouldn't scar though unless it was a big tear or something.

Omg, using curly straw sounds like a neat idea - I like! ^^
I don't think the gauge is an important factor, I think 14-16 are the standard sizes used...
When you get a labret done with, say, a bar, the length size will be much bigger than a standard one.

Yes, love the straws. <3

Does it vary between labrets and snakebites? Not sure which I want yet. My friends say snakebites would look good on me but everyone has them which is annoying. I guess I won't care after it's done anyway.

Ah, too many factors. I wish someone would do it to me while I'm asleep, nothing can wake me up. Be nice if it was like "Over and done with, get up lazy ass." and that was it.

I don't think the gauge or the size vary from labrets and snakebites...
Both would require longer sized bars at the beginning and then once they've healed you would then just change them to the ideal size that fits. I'm sure the piercer would guide you to a perfect size. [=

Aha, yeah loads of people have snakebites nowadays...but they look so gnarly on people!^^ <3
I adooore the adrenaline rush of getting pierced though, such a wicked cool sensation! But it doesn't last that long...boo!

If you do get a labret or snakebites, I wish you the best girl.[= x

I'm having a friend do mine, used to be a professional piercier so hopefully all goes well. (ten ours later - infected) >_>; Shit.

Snakebites are hot but labrets have a certain appeal, want both but can't. I'll probably go "inny mini minny moe" at the last second.

It is thrilling but I love the feel of metal in your skin more than the rush, oddly.
Thanks for all the advice. <3

I don't want any piercings, anywhere. I don't need anything to get caught, hooked, torn, ripped, or infected.
