I've been thinking a lot lately about either getting a lip ring, or a labret piercing, but i really can't decide which one to go for, if i decide to go for it. Does anyone have either of these? recommendations? advice??

Thanx

The only advice I can give is to make sure wherever u work/go to school/etc doesnt mind it. I ended up getting this thing done five times. I got it done in 10th grade, principal said it was "distracting", I took it out. Got it done again a year later, went to the slammer, and had to remove it; hole closed. Got it done yet again right after I got out...bf convinced me to nix it, and i did.. Once again last year, in a diff location of the lip..(towards the right side this time) job said I had to get rid of it..along with my bright red hair..and since I was tired of putting the damn thing in and out, I just let the hole close. Once more..I have it again. Back when I first got mine, I was the only one who had one around my area, so it was a pretty cool thing to have. Pretty easy to maintain..but the labret is cool too. All i like to do is grab a soda can and rub the piercing across the top to make noises to bug the hell out of people.

It's a stud between your chin and your lip (closer to your lip).

Ah, I see. I think the labret is kind of cool myself.

nah..didn't hurt me. Compared with getting a five dollar tattoo done by a guy who was obviously high on something with a ghettofied tattoo gun, the piercing was a piece of cake.

I'd love to have one, but I have to worry about corporate dress codes and the like. I think the kind that Kreeli has is hawt.

We see the world as "we" are, not as "it" is; because it is the "I" behind the "eye" that does the seeing.

I *love* how the labret looks, and it can look smarter/"cleaner" than a lip ring, which is handy for work. Labret's my favourite piercing although I can't get any more because I'm allergic to everything

I have a lip ring, but I normally wear a labret stud in it because its easier to wear than a ring and I have trouble finding ones that fit my lip well and don't "lean" to the right or left. I would say get like a high labret that you can wear a ring in if you want to, I have a friend who has one like this and I really think it is the best of both worlds. Mine does have the benifit being easier to hide if necessary because if I put a retainer in most of it is covered by the shadow of my lip so it doesn't stand out, so you might also do that, if hiding it is a concern.



ETA: Kreeli's lip ring is hot isn't it?

I have a labret piercing. It's my favorite piercing, and I most certainly favor it over lip piercings.

You'd look good with a labret piercing.

I have a lip ring. I love it. I love them on other people.

It did not hurt getting it pierced and it never has. It healed very quickly (swelling wasnt too bad at all and it went down quickly). I can never even feel it when the person at the piercing place changes the ring (ive had it changed to smaller rings, and one without the little ball).



(Basically its all been the complete opposite of the experiences getting my eyebrow and an upper ear pierced)

I think they're hot too! I've seen ones that didn't look good but if that's you in your avatar, then yeah! You'd look great with a labret piercing!

Has anyone seen a vertical labret, the one where theres a stud on top of and below the bottom lip? That's also an option for me. I hear that with a labret piercing some people have problems with their gums and teeth, which would be avoided with a vertical labret.
