I have my "labret" (which is the actual term) for 2 years now. I believe it should be done by a professional and in a sterile environment.

When piercing your lip, is it okay to put a regular earring that you put in your ear in it until you are capable of getting a labret?

i did mine last night.  I sterilized the needle and the ear ring (i used an ear ring post, for now) and then i just poked it through.  It didn't bleed or hurt or anything.  Now it hurts and its swollen, but thats just temporary. It's totally worth it.  The only problem I had is that its a little out of place on the lip but oh well.

It's not good to pierce your lip by yourself without the proper equipment. If you use the proper gauge piercing needle, you sterilize it, and you do everything right, you're fine. But it's really hard to do. I got my lip done for $45... come on it's not that expensive. Most people can make that much in one day! HA!

I did mine, and all I used was a safety pin and some anbesol (numbing stuff). It didn't hurt at all, but you have to be quick about putting the labret in, because it closes up really fast.

I pierced my lip on Saturday, It's April. 2nd I'm thinking now.

I pierced it on the left side. I was a LITTLE off and pierced just a bit too high, but it still look's great. I have a barbell in.

What I did was took some pills [ i know stupid ] for I had a little bit more confidence..I just took 3 benadryl. and 1 and a half tylonel. Then I took a sewing pin, And some Alcohol wipes and a Lighter, And cleaned the pin, Then I marked my spot with a pen.. And took A sewing pin and TWISTED IT (( Twisting is way faster! )) and Kept on twisting the pin inward until it finally popped through, Then I took a safety pin, And As soon as I took the sewing pin out I shuved the Safety pin through. I did it at my friends...
The next day I went and got a barbell and streteched it [ WHICH HURT ] but thats okay...and I still have the barbell in, I'm planning on getting a hoop soon.
I clean it after I eat, smoke, drink with anti - septic mouth wash and Poly sporin ( only for the outside of the ring) And use anti-septic mouth wash for the inside and clean it good.

My lips doing great, And, it doesn't hurt as much as it looks.. I'm happy I did it :)

So for whoever does their lip by theirself, make sure you do it right! And keeep it clean :) bye!

just because someone else's didn't get infected doesn't mean yours wont.  look into things like getting an actual piercing needle thats sterile and packaged,and just general stuff for aftercare, like hand sanitizer(since you shouldn't be touching your piercing with dirty hands) and anti-septic mouthwash.

I suggest you get it done by someone who knows how to do it. Further up i saw someone pierced there lip with a nail! Thats is not smart at all , if your gonna do it yourself , get a piercing needle and good luck from there , if you dont know how to do it find someone who knows how to do it. I got my lip done about a week ago from a friend of mine . Right out of his house , but he had new needles , new jewlery and told me how to clean it and all that good stuff. It gets a little swollen , but thats normal. Dont go poking sewing needles through your face or saftey pins. Be smart about it.

You guys are all douches if you're going to pierce things by yourself. To the person who said that the actual term was "Labret," you're wrong. You can, in fact, get your lip pierced. It's a completely different thing. If we want to get technical, it's called a "Reversed Labret."
As for the rest of you, don't be idiots. You need a professional to do this for you. You need a hollow needle, clamps, a rubber stopper and a curved ring.
Don't be stupid.
The reason you're supposed to use a hollow needle and NOT an earring or a sewing needle is because of the scarring.
You guys are dumb.

piercing your eyebrow by yourself is easy. You mark where you want to pierce it, the clamp it, you shove the needle through, and then keep it in (still clamped) then as your pulling the needle out you put the barbell through. and your done! you can clean it with normal ear ring cleaning, but NOT with alcohol cleaning things.

hey. my advice on piercings is don't do it yourself unless you know what you're doing. i've done 11 piercings on my ears and my belly button myself without a problem. i don't want my parents to find out so i just use stuff around the house. i first sterilize what i'm going to pierce with (usually a safety pin) with a lighter and then hand disinfectant stuff which i also put on my hands. then i clean the barbell/hoop/whatever i'm gonna put in there once it's pierced. then i just put ice on it until i can't feel it much. then i slowly push the safety pin thru so that i am sure i can handle it. i've had no problem with my ears or belly button but the area around the piercing is always a lil' bit sensitive. my friends think i'm crazy for doing it myself but i do so many piercings that it's totally worth not paying for it. i would say that if you've never done a piercing before and you want to do one on your face...you should start with your ears just to make sure you can handle it. i came on this site to get info on piercing my lip and nose. people shouldn't come on here and say it's stupid to do it yourself...they're just too wimpy to try. good luck to you all!

ive have pierced my lip (middle, left and on the right) by eyebrows (3 on the left and 2 on the right), my ears (2 on each lobe one on each tragus and 2 up top on left and one up top on the right ear), both nipples, my bridge (between your eyebrows), my septum and my tongue all myself. my advice is to get a book/video or go into a piercing shop and ask them how its down and watch it being done. get the proper equipment (14/12ga needles and sterilizers) and always take care of it afterwoulds!!! my advice is dont do the eyebrow urself or your tongue, you may and WILL hit a nerve if u do the wrong spot. the tongue and brow r for the pros. becareful!!!

Quit being cheap. I bet half of you, if not more, are doing it yourself because your parents won't let you. I knew someone who sterilized the needle and all, and still got infected. She deserved it, so do you if you do it yourself.

hi i got my Labret pierced professionally last year and it went all horrible, it doesn't always go fine if you get it done professionally, the guy pierced it with a really tiny bar so it got embedded in my face.i pierced my Tragus last night and it didn't hurt and i used a normal ear stud.I'm going to change it to a Labret bar soon when i can get a long enough bar.I'm a trainee body piercer so my advice is you should get your piercings how you want them, after all its your body and if it goes infected then you only have yourself to blame.its also cheaper to do it yourself, but i find that its easier to do it yourself because you can with stand more pain if your expecting it!

Labret piercings arent hard.  I did my own and now I do others also.  The best way to go about it is go to an animal feed store.  You can buy sanitary hollow needles there for like 4 for a buck.  Use mouth wash before and after.  Mark where you want it with a marker or pen (water soluable)(sp).  Pierce from the outside to the inside and stick your labret through the hole.  Pull the needle out.  Screw the ball spike whatever on.  and you are done!

Well I was really F***ing wrong!  I read through here before and still didn't take the advice, I used a earing stud to pierce my labret. sigh, Well it was to tight and not the right gauge so it sounds stupid but Clair's sell there studs and they have a thicker longer barbell for sale so I'm going to camp ill pierce it when i get there and change to a retainer the morning i leave so my parents don't freak.  Of course ill bring the cleaning supplies i need.  But does anyone think that'll be better.  Ive pierced my nose and my ear 5 times

theres nothing wrong with doing your own piercings why is everyong acting like its so dangeros i have my ears gauged to a 4 and my cataliage to a 10, i have my eyebrown done and my lip, i did them all myself. no problems if you do have a problem just clean it a lot and if it gets bad just take it out and wait

My friend died piercing her lip.....she got an infection in her mouth and she didnt get it treated and then one night the puss build up into her throat and she suffocated.......it was devastating considering her parents ha d told her that they would have it professionally peirced, yet she wanted to be like one of our other friends who had done it himself.. SO DONT BE AN IDIOT...AND GET IT DONE BY A PRO... AND IF YOU CANT TOO BAD WAIT TILL YOUR 18..

hey you guys well although piercing your lip yourself is not the best way to go if you plan on doing it DO NOT use a normal earing go to like a drug store and get a seringe (spelt wrong) and some mouth wash with no alcohol in it for the first few dayz dilute it with 50% water wash at least 3 to 4 times a day, DO NOT play with the jewelry until the piercing is completely healed (3-5 weeks) and try to avoid any play afterwords. heavy creams are not to good because they keep the piercing from breathing ...but any ways to sterilize your skin rub non-alcoholic antibacterial liquid on it and to sterilize the needle get some neosporin and boil the needle first cover the tip of the needle in neosporin and your all set
ps. if you hold an apple behind your lip the needle is WAY easier to push through and goes straighter.   have fun and be safe (have a friend around in case of accident)

Ok listen heres the truth there are surtain things you can do yourself and surtain things you cant.Your lip is not a big deal you wont"suffocate" I did my own lip a while ago.Your tounge and brow is a different story.If you hit a nerve in your tounge you can ether paralyze your tounge or worse your whole body!When it comes to the brow if you hit a nerve you could blind an eye or even both.People who did do these yourselves you go extremely lucky
Be careful and leave the eye brow and lip to the pros!:)

To anyone that piece them self I wouldn't use a plastic or a cheep earring because I pieced my own ears a few times and had a few good earrings (silver gold or the one's the professionalís use) and some cheep ones and there was a big difference in infection, so if your going to cheep out of getting the piecing at lest spring the 10 bucks and buy a better earring stud or what have you.

I pierced my lip a couple years back with an ear piercer I got at sallys beauty supply. I had a regular earring in for a day or two, then switched it to a ring. I ended up getting a blood clot because I kept changing the ring down to lower sizes, at least 4 times within the first month.
since then I've become quite a piercer, and it's so incredibly easy to do labrets with these ear piercers. I recommend using that, and then switching to a ring/labret stud whenever you can.

Like Lostcontinent has said.
Piercing your lip, eyebrow, labret, anywhere is dangerous.
Your lip can swell and stay swollen if it is not treated correctly.
If you pierce your eyebrow you can hit a nerve, with will paralize you for life.
Plus when minors pierce things on their own you leave a mess for us [professional piercers] to fix. And personally its hell trying to fix a piercing someone has messed up.
If your underage their are a few places you can go and get a under the table piercing.

you guys really need to learn what to do... first of all... NEVER EVER use a safety pin for any type of piercing, 2nd.. there may not be veins in your lip, but there are nerves and arteries, if you hit a nerve that runs down your face, you can numb 1/2 of your face permanently, so do yourself a favor, have an experienced person (prefferably a professional) pierce anything you want, it may cost some money, but thats better than screwing up and numbing ur face or getting a bad viral infection on your face

I just pierced my labret 10 minutes ago and it didn't hurt that much. The only problem is getting whatever stud you're using into your lip. It heals very quickly and even though it's tricky finding the hole. I did it twice actually. And the second time I just wire snipped of thee end off the needle and bent it that way I can wait till tomorrow till it's ok to put a different stud in. I wouldn't do that if I were reading this though. It hurts alot right now.

I think you are all stupid. Do you know what could happen by piercing yourself without having the right knowledge or experience? I am a body  piercer and even I let people do my facial piercings because mirrors aren't very reliable. You can SERIOUSLY hurt yourself and get very bad infections. Trust me..save the money and go to a professional your parents will thank you when it comes to your hospital bill that ran them a few thousand dollars. Cartilage (top of your ear or nose) is a very delicate thing to pierce. If you don't do it right, and use a hollow needle (piercers use hollow needles to remove skin and allow for jewelry, sewing needles don't do this), you can get a build up of cartilage that will grow out of nowhere and can lead to nose and ear deformities. Also infections. I'm not talking about just a little bit of puss and pain. I'm talking about an infection that grows under the skin and can make you septic (a term which means you have poisoned your blood). This is why we have professionals, and this is why you shouldn't use regular sewing needles.
Also another reason not to use sewing needles. For one..you cannot sterlize them. No matter what your friends told you. Its not disinfected by boiling or use of alcohol. I swear on my career that it does NOTHING! The proper way to sterilize jewelry and needles are an autoclave. They get hotter than boiling water, and they have this ultrasonic sound that repells things off of the crevices of the metal.
Go to a piercer and save yourself the trouble!!!!!!!

I am a 15 year old girl. Im a student at ALC. If you want to pierce your lip it is easy. All you need is a stud earing. Thats how i did it, and I pierced my lip twice in two different spots and it NEVER got infected. But you have to leave the earing in your lip for about 3 days. Then got to hottopic and get a flat back lip ring. Then you can enjoy having your lip pierced.

I haven't done it myself yet, and I'm gonna get it proffessionally done. But I think you should get a fake piercing first, so you can see how it looks before you do anything drastic. (spelled wrong)
That's what I'm doing. And if it doesn't look good then I'm not doing it offcourse.
So I advice you to buy a fake one first, and do it proffessionally. My friend knows a girl who did it by herself, and she regreted it. It was misplaces, so whatever ring she puts in never "rests" on her lip like it should. So think about that before you do it if you're gonna do it.

Well I pierced my own Lip by myself and it hurt just a little bit. The thing that I used to numb it with was Oral Jell, Hey I know it is kinda funny but it worked. I used a big safty pin and I pushed it in little by little. And it turned out GREAT. I have had it Pierced for One Year and 4 Months. And what I used for AfterCare was Tea Tree Oil. That work's Best. But I don't use it anymore cause it Healed and everything. It is fine now. It took mine about 6 to 8 Month's to Heal. So if you decide to Pierce your lip by yourself, I wish you the best of Luck and I hope it turn's out great for you....*Amy*....

How bad is it to pierce your lip yourself? I just did it about 5 minutes ago. I would have liked some help, that would have made it easier. It was my first self-piercing experience, I would have liked the experience of piercing my own ears. I was as prepared as possible, very clean, everything was disinfected repeatedly before, after, and throughout the process. I had difficulty threading the ring in behind the needle. I used too big of a needle, a 12gage professional piercing needle. I did it too slow, I think, at least as far as minimizing pain. It hurt, but only for a second, afterward there was no pain from the stabbing of my lip with the needle. Make sure you get the ring/barbell/etc as the needle is coming out. Mine came out, and threading it back through was most painful, it would not go through both sides and I spent half an hour messing around with it as one end searched and scrapped the inside of my body, and I don't mean inside my mouth. It was between the layers of flesh in my lip. This one have been no problem if I had used a barbell or a larger ring. I plan on using Bactine disinfectant to clean the outside skin, and Biotene mouthwash to clean the inside. I hope I've helped, goodluck, have fun.

HEY, i pierced my lip a while ago and it dosent really hurt at all....if u thinkn it will hurt it might!  but wat you can do is go to a drugstore and pick up this liquid for chanchor swores..and that stuff numbs your lip for a while! so no worries for pain and then you just push the needle through! or u can heat the needle up and that will keep the hole there + also go through easier!

i think it would be kinda hard to peirce your labret yourself because when i got mine done they used a hollow needle cause they needed to take a chunk out but if you peirce it yourself use a brand new clean needle.

Most of you here need a reality slap. Piercing with a safety pin is not the correct way to go. Its the wrong material, wrong size, makes it easy to get an infection and makes the jewelry follow through horrible. If you are actually interested in not getting an infection maybe you should get it professionally done or go to bmezine.com so you understand more about what you are getting yourself into and stop being an idiot. Also, the person that said labret is the correct term is wrong. Lip and labret are different piercings. Look it up.

i peirced my lip a little while ago, and i hit it by putting a TINY earring in backwards...instead of having the deacorated end of the earring in your lip..(i was too cheap to buy an actual lipring) you put it in backwards, so the thin metal part that actually goes into your lip, is sticking out of the hole...and if you dont push it out, no one will notice it

IF YOU PIERCE YOUR OWN LIP START FROM THE INSIDE OF YOUR MOUTH!!!!! ITS MUCH EASYER AND THERE IS ABSOLUTLY NO PAIN AT ALL!!!! i've tried it both ways. the first time i pierced it from the outside of my lip and it was painful.  the second time i did it from the inside of my lip and it had no pain what so ever. i didnt even know it went through. and ther is no problem piercing yourself if you know what your doing and have clean needles and jewelry.  and those of you who want to argue about it... knowing what you are doing and having safe, clean equipment is the same things the prefessional piercers do...so whats the diference?....but seriously try it from the insdie of ur mouth.  its a little harder the position correctly but its possible.  and evem if you got it crooked its not painful so you can do it over again.

You guys, piercing yourself is a great means of self-expression, but some of you are going about it all wrong!  You have to be clean about it.  A safety pin is not the best option to make a hole: it's not sterile (look up sterilization techniques), it's not guaged, and using a piercing needle (which are very cheap and can be bought on ebay easily) is just so much simpler.  Please don't pierce each other, as this is a huge risk in disease transmission.  Use your NEW gloves, use NEW sterile needles, Use good cleanliness and have fun.  Check out the BME website, it's great

I pierced my own lip in the middle 3 days ago with a sewing needle I steralized with a lighter.
The next morning I took out the needle and placed a barbell in it. It's still swollen but is'ntred or infected looking. I use soap and a cuetip to to clean the outside. And mouthwash to clean the inside. So far so good. Be prepared for some pain when trying to insert an new ring or stud. I currently have a barbell in mine which I do not suggest.(unless you wanna eat soup for the next week or so) I'll update my experience for you in a couple weeks.

a comment about the puss build up, if you don't keep your new piercings clean, and have professional jewelery in for the use , it can build up and cause infection. i used a regular earring and puss built up around the backing and stuck on and i couldn't get it off until i dug it away with a tooth pick. BE STERILE!

You are so retarded "there are no veins in the lip". Even if that was a good thing (because its not, the less vascular an area the more prolonged the healing time) it would mean the cells in your lip don't get any oxygen, because they need arterioles for that!!! Genius... "no veins in the lip".. thats rich. So why does it bleed when you cut it? if lips have no veins, then when you cut your lip open it shouldn't bleed. But it does, doesn't it? Professional piercers take the time to look around and place the piercing so it doesn't hit any larger veins, to lessen bleeding. God, you are all so stupid. Like that other chick said, i hope it gets infected and leaves nasty scars.

OK..well, i have pierced my lip 4 times. dont worry..not all over my lip. In the same spot..parents making me take it out. All i did was soak an earring in rubbing alcohol. Burn a needle. Mark the spot on my lip that i wanted pierced. slightly burned the skin on that spot. and poked the earring in. No problem. the next day i'dbuy a labret stud and put that in..the longest i'vehad mine in was 2 weeks..i was on vacation with some friends. but i'm doing it again tonight..STILL BE CAREFUL! if it hurts to much, take it out and wait til you have the money to get it prof. done!

When you do get your lip pierced, and you are trying to hide it from your parents, bosses, teachers...etc. Get a fishing line (sine it's sharp enough and stiff) and cut a little piece. Tie one end into a knot, so it would kind of resemble a stud. Then insert it in after you're done piercing. By doing this, it will invisible to others. Hope this helps. =)

To the smart ass "Shanae" who figures the actual term for a labret is a reversed labret...your wrong u dumb tit...a reversed labret is when you have a vertical labret peircing...commonly used is an eyebrow ring..pierced once through the top part of your lip right below the opening of your mouth..ending at the bottom where the reg. labret would be....so next time if your going to try and correct someone with a snotty remark..make sure you have your facts right sweetheart.

ok i pierced my eyebrow, all went good. remember, if it's infected, its not a good idea to take it out. see a doctor or

something. cuz then the puss cant get out .. lip piercing. im doing it right now.

first im just poking it with a safety pin ( did it before) then you can wear a sharp good metal fake one to slowly penatrate and moving the veins out of th way. as for

letting a professional do it, yeah that

really doesnt make a difference. and who

are some of u to tell them that they are

doing it bcuz there parents wont let them

maybe they want to prevent them from shock.

breath in, as you do it. breathing out lets

ur toxins, and what not come out/

turn 2twice daily, never touch unless u use rubber gloves, trust me. wash with mouth wash. only listerine. wait 4-7 weeks for healing to be close/completed

Even if you do get it professionally done, theres still gonna be risks, theres still gonna be cases of such things as that. I did my lip myself not because i'mpoor but my mum wouldn't let me get it done. Apart from the swelling and such i'venever had an infection and never had a problem with it at all. I used a sterilised sewing machine needle and some ice...i marked it out and went for it. If you know you have an infection at lest put some stuff to heal it up with dont let it get so bad you suffocate with puss build up.

dude plz ... no one can DIE from piercing their lip, thats gay. I have 3 lip piercings all done by me! and is there an infection after 2 years? NOPE its easy just get a sewing needle and shove it through, well actually take ur time and then at the middle of it take the earring and put it through the back of the lip its better that way. The inside part is prolly the hardest to get through dunno y it just is!

any questions? ive done all my piercings myself so i know what im doing .. i have 8 in each ear, 3 lip piercings, my nose my eyebrow and my belly button but DONT e-mail me if you cant take pain

Ok look. My friends work at this vets office, so they are able to get syringes. The syringes come in a little vile of alcohol and they come in different sizes. One night we had a piercing party thing, and one of the girls did my nipples. I basically boiled the needle then soaked it in alcohol for a while later, in hopes that I will use them again. We did my friends labret that night, but it took us 30 mins to get the syringe through because the dork didn't have anything to put in there. We used a post for the time being and then he went out the next day to get something else.
Basically, my point is is that all you really need to get the perfect piercing is a really clean syringe. Wash the area with some alcohol and pop that baby through!
I totally recommend the nipples...fun!
But yeah I'm planning on getting my labret tonite, using the same syringes. Now, some of you might be all EWWWW YOURE GOING TO GET INFECTED. My nipples are fine because I used this saline solution that I used on my nose. Really people, thats all you need for cleaning.
But if you are getting a job...don't get it done. I have to get one soon, but I might have to take out my nose ring.
I am all for self-piercings...if you can handle them. I did my ears and got my nose and tragus done professionaly. Why waste the money?

well... i had a friend pierce my lip and well it worked but apparently he was doing it the wrong way and it hurt really really bad. i could feel my lip taring slowly as he pushed down on the pin. so my suggestion it do it from the outside in and not the inside out, and have a friend do it because if you try it yourself you will probably end up getting sick and stopping, and im pretty sure thats a really bad thing to do. so yea have a friend do it from the outside in. and you dont need to ice it. when i did it from the inside out it hurt like hell, but we messed that up so we had to do it again and this time from the outside in and that didnt hurt so much.

Go Ahead And Pierce Your Lip. I Did Mine And I Didn't Get Any Infections Or Anything. I Also Pierced Under My Toungue And It's Fine. I'm Planning On Piercing More Parts Too.

Here's What I Did. I Used A Sewing Needle It Would've Been About 16, 18 Gauge. I Centred It And Pushed It Through. It Hurt But Not Bad. Ice Doesn't Help At All. I Put A Regular Earing In And After A Day I Was Able To But A 14 Gauge Ring In. I've Had It For A Few Months. It Got Infected Once But, It Healed. The Worst Thing That Could Happen, You Have to take It Out And Let It Heal.

It's Really Not A Big Deal.

I'm about to pierce my labret myself or with the help of two friends...and Chelsey. I'm using a proper needle, have an actual labret ring and intend on using something to numb it. The same things that they use at a peircing parlour except in my own bathroom. I've peirced a friend's nose with nothing but a sewing needle and the same for another friends navel. No problems, no infections. If your using the right things and have a slight idea of what your doing do it yourself but at least get somebody who knows how to o its advice and the proper equipment.

There's stories and stuff but i pierced mine myself

Basically what i did was take a sewing needle, tie some floss on the end of it and use ice to numb my mouth [both sides] and tie the floss once it gets through.
Its not the pierce that hurts, its when the needle point goes through and the skin has to stretch around the rest of the needle. thats why it helps to ice both sides before you do this
anyways after getting the floss through tie it, and then stick a .20 stud or earring to hold its place
I did mine at night and slept with both the floss and earring in
Then next morning i got up, and took a gage (I think thats what its called, those cone-shaped earrings)
and stretched it to 16g
and boom. I had my ring

But to keep it from getting infected i use a little bit of hydrogen peroxide and clean it out every morning/night when i brush my teeth
you can use vodka or other strong alcohol too if you don't have hydrogen peroxide

oh and cleaning it burns.

but all in all, id say getting stung by a bee is worse

so, back in april, i pierced my own nose with a sterilized safety pin.  i felt the smallest amount of pain that you could possibly feel from sticking something sharp and metal through your flesh. then, about a month ago, i put a second hole in each of my ears with a sterilized safety pin and it didn't hurt AT ALL.  i also regularly re-pierce my cartilage because i'm impatient and don't like to wait for it to heal.  anyway, i pierce myself because i like it, not because i'm not old enough (i'm 18) not because i'm cheap (if i really wanted to go get it done, i could pay for it) i guess i just like the pain... or maybe it's the lack of pain i feel.  anyway, my nost has never given me any problems and neither have my ears.  i plan on doing my tragus of my lip next, i can't decide.

to pierce your labret yourself, first get a sterilized piercing needle(not a nail)and put some rubbing alcohol on it. Then take the needle and some rubber gloves and pierce it going from the soft part, going out. Then quickly replace the needle with a sterilized barbell etc. and mouth wash vigorously. Remove barbell and repeat. Some peoples' lip may swell, but this is normal and it will pass once your body gets used to it. Then your done. Be sure to take it out every night and mouth wash and sterilize your barbell etc before you put it back in. i also advise leaving in your barbell etc through the night to prevent it from closing. To all you piercing your labret or any part of your body with a rusty nail or a common household safety pin, the probability of it getting infected is fairly high and infection is not very fun. It is common for it to result in the affected area to create pus and scab. this unsightly wound will definitely impact your social life and will leave you weary about piercings. Just remember, piercings are a form of expression and if done properly, could be very adventagious.

ok. I'm considering piercing my lip. It's good. I'm a bit scared but whatever. I just felt I had to stay something to the kids who want to be able to take it out. You have to understand the pros and cons and if you want to be able to take it out to hide it or whatever, than I don't believe that you are ready for this. You commit to having a lip ring or nose ring or whatever. You have to be mature enough to handle the consequences that come with it.
That's all. Good luck to you guys.

So, I've wanted to get my lip done for a whileeeee now. I've pierced my ears [1st, 2nd, 3rd holes & cartilage]. I've pierced my nose too. But as soon as my Mom saw my cartilage & my nose ring..she IMMEDIATELY told me to take them out..which i did. I loved piercing my ears because they didn't hurt a bit. Just a little ice to numb it. But now that I've been wanting my lip done..which i need to somehow HIDE from my parents. I'm 15 now. My parents told me I can get anything done when I turn 18. But I seriously don't want to wait that long. So; I've been thinking of doing it myself; I mean..it can't go that bad, right?

being a profesional in tattoo and peircing, ive done every single one of my 40 some peircings by my self. it realy depends on your experience and equipment. you sould ALWAYS!!!!! make sure your everything is cleaned corectly! if not, you can bet anything it will get infected! trust me, when your partents say "take care and clean your new percing or it will fall off" they mean it! and i mean it. ive seen it happen. also a bright side to peircing yourself is cost,prices can be way to high sometimes.

now i honestly prefer doin it proffesionaly as i dont trust myself doin it im kinda a clutz plus i have no way of buying the proper needles and so on as my dad once again gets in the way, im goin into 11th grade and ive always wanted piercings and recently i figured since my dad wont let me dye my hair blue i could possibly convince him to at least let me get my industrial...

does anyone have any advice on convincing parents to let you get a piercing or dye your hair? ive been doin loads of yard work and work around the house for him and its workin so far plus ill be payin for the piercin and or dye myself but PLEASE if anyone convinced their parents please tell me how (im me with any advice)

People listen to me. Do not use a sewing needle or an earring. It will leave a very bad scar plus the hole will be to small and you will not be able to get the earring in. You need the proper earring back (WHICH IS FLAT). You will mess up your gums. you really need to look into getting the right earring for it because some of the foods acid can affect the metal which can make you break out. The proper earring for it cost no more than $18.00. trust me people, DON'T DO IT. RESEARCH JUST A LITTLE BIT MORE.

i've never pierced anything on my face before until a day ago- my lip. i'm used to piercing my ears or surface piercing or like color bones and stuff. the outcome of that is just a little pain. i've had my lip piercing for more than 24 hours and the swelling is to the point where i can't close my mouth. yesterday, the swelling wasn't visible. i'm wondering if it's an infection. i clean it everytime i go to the bathroom, after a shower, after brushing my teeth. i brush my teeth after i drink/eat something. i'm thinking it's from pressure from my piercing, i guess i'll have to wait it out.
<img src="http://myspace-066.vo.llnwd.net/00180/66/01/180781066_l.jpg">

minors trying to hide your piercing-ask if you can go to the mall, go to hot topic and buy a labret retainer for about 6.00. it's barely visible. don't try to cover it up with makeup. i've watched a friend do that, and that night her piercing for all pusy and there was makeup inside the wound. it was actual quite disgusting.

peircing you lip is very easy, there isnt any hard cartilage to get through and its mostley muscle it should be done with ether a 18GA or 16GA needle always use a peice of jewlery made for lips if u try one for and ear it pinches and causeing excess swelling and soreness a pair of peircing forceps make it alot easyer also because it will give u a straight shot easily...if u need any of these supplies you can usually find them on ebay or some online stores or even some tattoo/piercing shops i hope some of these tips come in handy have fun LaTeR...

I'm planning on piercing my labret here shortly, and I'm kinda worried it will get infected. So what do I do to clean it? Also, can I sterilize the needle by letting it sit in peroxcide? If so, how long does it have to sit?

alrite.. for one thing .. you'd have to be pretty stupid to do it yourself, and not make sure you cleaned it.(im sorry to hear about your friend) like .. as long as you clean it at least 3 times a day, nothing bad will happen. as for teh puss .. thats just sick. but if you get witch hazel, or sea salt, and put that on your peircing for 5/10 minutes, it'll heal it up. i recommend witch hazel for belly button peircings. alrite .. for ear peircings, i would rather do it myself then get it professionally done because the people who do it, are usually dumb frieken blondes (sorry to those who are blondes) but .. when theyre peircing the top part of your ear, they usually do it with a gun, which is WRONG! because you have cartillage in your ear, and if you do that with teh gun, it fractures the cartillage and you get a bump behind the peircing. ive peirced my ears a bunch of times, and it hasnt gotten infected. at all. as long as you have it cleaned. (if you hear a popping noise as you're peircing your ears, dont worry. its just tissue breaking. so dont freak out, and pull out the needle, just keep going. and do it quick) anyways.. as for lip peircing. i did mine myself. it turned out wonderfully. alrite.. as long as you dont do it crooked, and clean it. you'll be okay. you dont have any major veins in your lip, so dont worry about hitting it. mark a spot on your lip with a marker, and look to see if thats the part you want it, then go for it. make sure teh needles sharp enough, and have everything staralized... i have my nose done, but i had it professionally done. but it didn't look too hard to do. just shove a cotton ball up your nose (that way if you shove the needle in too far, it wont poke the other side of your nose) and shove a needle through.  then quickly switch the needle, and put in your stud/ring. eyebrow .. no veins. probably the easiest, in my opinion. pretty much teh same as all teh others. steralize. keep it clean. dont touch it with dirty fingers (MEANING, ONLY TURN IT WHEN YOU WASH YOUR FILTHY LITTLE FINGERS WITH SOAP AND WATER) and yep! labret.. well that ones the most painless. do it quickly tho, because the hole closes really quick. and voila.

Okay, listen. Reading through all of these posts et cetera one thought was in my head. A lot of you can't even spell, or use punctuation. If you can't do something that you get taught in early grades (k-3 are basics dearies) then how can you trust yourselves to do piercings correctly.

I know that a lot of you have done the piercings yourselves and they've gone fine. Although I suggest looking into it and thinking about it thouroughly before actually going through with it.

That being said and done, a few years ago I pierced my ears more than fourteen times (not on each side--that's combined) a few got infected, but with the propper care they were  healed. I got my nose done professionally.

GET YOUR NOSE DONE PROFESSIONALLY BECAUSE THERE ARE NERVES IN YOUR NOSE. At least study where nerves and major veins are placed throughout the body, especially where you are planning on piercing. That's what professionals spend years studying, to keep you safe.

Do not do your tongue, or eyebrows either. (I'm training to be a piercer)

Lips and labrets are usually alright to pierce yourself with the right materials.
A hollow, sterile piercing needle, gloves etc. It's always good to have clamps, as well.

I'm not here preaching you not to pierce yourself. But do it at your own risk and you can't blame it on anyone but yourself if you get an infection (it happens with most piercings eventually, even if done professionally)

My suggestion however is to wait to get it done (until you legally can sign off for it) because your mind can change and you have less risks and will have more explained to you than you could find online.

ciao.

No, Come on. Just dont wash your needle in dirt, clean it off if you want. I didnt.

I just pierced it a few hours ago, and I must say, it is a bit high on the outside and I may reposition it, but overall, I think the middle was actualyl the worst, but it isn't that thick.

Materials? Safety pin that has been laying on this desk for about 3 months now.

I was talking on the phone so I wasn't really conentrating, so it took me about 10 minutes. No mirror till the end, no alcohol, no flame, no boiling.

Easy. Though, if your parent will let you and you have money, go out to the mall and get it done. Much nicer experience, and they know what they're doing.

you guys are all dumb asses. don't you think there would be a reason as to why your parents wouldn't want you to get a lip ring? ever tried getting a job with a weird facial piercing? but whatever..

if you absolutely HAVE to pierce your lip TRY to find someone who has a professional piercing kit. if you're in high school chances are someone will have one so just ask around. if you don't want your parents to find out go get a clear retainer. if they ask about the hole say you were wearing a clip on.

-sigh- how I miss being so young.

but yeah. just cos so many people here say that theirs went fine doesn't mean yours will. there's always a chance that something can go horribly horribly awry so if you can wait, don't risk it.

ok you CANNOT die from getting your lip done ... believe me im a peircest with 20 years experience. I cannot really talk as i did my ear 5 times ... my tonge.. my lip and my tunnel by myself before i had the proper training. But i WOULD advice you guys to get it done professionally cause it can be dangerous but believe me the person who said her mate died is talking sh*t. In all my life have i not heard such a stupid thing! but if u really want to go the rebel way and do it yourself heres some tips....

1) sterile your equipment e.g safely pins by getting a match or lighter and heating the metal a. this will sterile it and b. it will make the needle/ safety pin go thro quicker.

2) make sure the area around the place were u are peircing is clean. Use antiseptic lotions or wipes or hot salt water to do this.

3) if when you are doing it it starts to bleed heavily, the area around the area you are peircing goes numb or has a stabbing pain in it STOP. This means you are not peircing it right e.g youve hit a vain. Which is NOT good.

4) make sure you are going to be comitted to looking after your new peircings. The amount of times ive seen a customer come into my store with infections, scabs and puss boils is wayy to many. If you dont look after it right... there is side afects but once again you CANNOT die.

5) clean your peircings with salt water or aticeptic lotions or wipes.

PLEASE NOTE I DO NOT RECOMEND ANYONE PEIRCING THERE TOUNGES BY THEMSELVES. THIS IS A VERY DANGERIOUS THING TO DO AND IF IT DOES GO WRONG YOUR SCREWED.

anyway hope this can be of help and if anyone has anymore questions please email me at ... rockyroadspeirings@hotmail.com

Well i think that getting it done by a pro means having everything sterile like someone else said in here. But if you have the right tools and every thing is clean you are set. And when i say the RIGHT tools i don't mean saftypins and earrings for lips. I mean hypodermic (meaning has a hole through the center) needles and labret rings. And i did mine with the right tool and fine to this day. Man i could be come a pro.

About 4 days ago i pierced my lip in my room. I didn't even really think about sterilizing it or looking for veins. I grabbed my pink safety pin earring and just stabbed it right through. See, i had just gotten back from the dentist and had Novocain numbing my whole bottom right part of my lip, so i didn't feel a thing. But i used an earring and the back of an earring for a day or two but the back began digging into my lip. So if you are planning to get a stud or Labret soon but need something quick and for now, i recommend cutting off the back of an eraser and sticking it on the back of the earring. It helped me so much, but it makes it a bit hard to eat and talk. So far, I've been lucky and didn't hit a vein or have run in with any troubles. But i recommend being very careful if you pierce something yourself. Other than that, have fun!

I pierced my lip 8 months ago and its fine, i just took a needle and pushed it through, it didnt hurt but it was aggervating when you got it almost through because the inner layer of your lip is tough to go through. I had my boyfriend shove a 14g labret piercing through it. After that i just left the labret piercing in it until it COMPLETELY healed and i washed around it and washed my mouth out with mouth wash after everytime i ate or smoked or drank anything other than water for a few weeks. Mines fine though just make sure every thing is cleaned properly because im sure its easy to get some kind of infection.

I just pierced my labret last week with a safety pin (i cleaned it first of course, with rubbing alcohol). I would have gotten it profesionally done but my parents would never let me, so I did it myself without them knowing. I put in a normal earring too and it has been fine. I clean it every day and piercing it didnt hurt one bit. The only problem is i pierced it a bit sideways, but i guess its ok. If you do have a problem when u pierce it, like if it swells for more than 2 days, let it heal before you try again

if you want to do it, you dont have to go to a professional.... all you got to do is go on ebay, they have forceps for piercing on there. the best needles to use are the 14g hollows. theyre what the pros use and theyre amazing to use, ive done piercings tons of times, havent had a problem, i pierced my face up about a year ago on my own, all sterile and packaged seperatly, and i had not one problem. except when i did my bellybutton and did it too shallow, but i didnt plan on keepin that anyways. so if you want to, go ahead, just dont be disgusting when you do, be safe and clean.

DON'T pierce your eyebrow by yourself. there's optical nerves which go through your eye and eyebrow, and if you hit them, you'll paralyze your face. don't do it. and this isn't because i'm 'wimpy', i've pierced my ears 6 times and my center lip myself. just don't do your eyebrow, tongue, septum or bridge by yourself.

ive been wanting my lip pierced for quite a while and checked this site, about 10 mins ago i just pierced it with a sterile sewing needle, figuring it would hurt bad i marked it and slowly pressed it it, other than a few little pinches it didnt hurt at all, i took it out a second ago cuz it was uneven and plan to redo it when i get the proper jewelry + there is no major vein that u can hit in your lip so no worries

Hi I'm in 7th grade and I pierced my ears by myself 5 times already (a pair on each lobe, and one at the top). The top one hurt really badly because of the cartilage, and I've been reading about how the lip is nothing compared to that. I've also been reading about how to sterylize the lip, keep it clean, everything, and I know what to expect. I really want to pierce my lip by myself because my mom would never take me to a proffesional, so if anyone has tips e-mail me at No.Transitory@hotmail.com

I did my lip my self with a hat needle you know the ones they use for like sewing or dissection lol anyways i sterilized it with alcohol and just put it through i did swell a lil bit but that is only for a week or so, you will develop a bump on the inside of your mouth because that skin has been pushed out of the way. Just be sure to clean the out side with alcohol and rinse your mouth out with salt water or peroxide and you'll be fine.

Piercing yourself is stupid and dangerous.  If you can't afford to treat your body the way it needs to be treated, you should wait until you CAN.  Not only can you NOT have a sterile environment in your house, but you can't 'sterilize' ANYthing with Alcohol.  Duh.  Alcohol barely kills anything, and nothing bloodbourne.  Using a safety pin is just dumb.  If you want a proper placed, clean and safe piercing, go to a PROFESSIONAL and have some pride.  And I don't mean any HACK in their basement or tattoo shop.  Check out safepiercing.org to find someone GOOD.

I notice how no one answers any of the questions. I'm probably not gonna post back or come back to this for anything.

I've had my left side of my lip done professionally. So I decided to do the otherside. I did it, just I couldn't get the ring in after piercing. I took out the needle and tried to put the ring in, bad idea. I got a hollow needle from my dentist, a horse needle basicly. 14 gauge maybe. I'm planning to do it again, but I heard stories about people losing feeling in half of their face. So I'm affraid to do it again, but I think I will none the less.

Just heres some tips.

Firstly, get a hollow needle, don't be retarded with a pin or sewing needle, losers. Next, probably get the closest thing to proper tongs. Little holes work best, if you want, get barbaque tongs. Get some latex gloves, mouthwash, and some disinfectant pads. Then your 14 gauge ring.

Put the tongs, needle, and ring into a pot of water, and heat it on the stove for awhile. I don't know how long, but for me I'm gonna do half hour to an hour when I do this again. When that's done, drain the water, with the tools, and then take the tools off and put them on a cookie sheet, then put them into the oven to heat for 30 mins to half an hour too. When that's done, leave them on the sheet, and take it to where you want to do your piercing. Wait till it cools, put on your gloves, wash your mouth with mouthwash (non alcohol mouthwash). After that, keep your mouth open and wipe the area clean with the disinfectant pad, making sure your mouth is still open, keep it open. Place the tongs on where you want it done with pressure and pulling your lip out, keeping the mouth open. Stick the needle in, look at pictures online to find a place where you think would be good on you. When the needle is in, you can remove the tongs. Leave the needle in your lip, just becareful of the tip of the needle hitting your guns or whatnot. I suggest peircing from outside in. I forgot how the pro. did it for me, I'm pretty sure he did outside in. Next get the ring, without the bead, and attach it to your lip from one of the sides (smallest part of the lip) and shimmy it next to the needle where the new hole is. Next slowly remove the needle (this will probably be the worst part) and as you remove the needle from your lip, push the ring through. If anything, decompress the ring so that it's easier to manouver into the hole, and then after compress it to get the hoop shape it needs. Then afterwords, use disinfectant pads to get rid of any blood, There will be blood, you can count on that.

Aftercare, all I used for my first one was non-alcoholic mouthwash, and disinfectant pads. I also always touched it to keep it from getting stuck from the crust. I don't recommend it, but make sure that it doesn't get stuck. Don't eat spicy foods, smoke, drink alcohol, or have any oral contact, or oral sex for 4-6 weeks. Don't change the ring till after 4-6 weeks. Probably a bit after theres no more crust and it's easily moveable.

This might help you, might not, you paralyze your face, it's your own fault, you took the risk, don't blame someone else. If you're stupid enough to do it, then you'll have to take the consequences if any.

Hey Guys..
Well Iv pierced my lip twice now.. but both times i couldnt get a ring in, as the gauge was way too small - Basically, DO NOT use a safety pin! Its way too small! But another problem i came across, is that a bigger safety pin is very much harder to pierce with... Im gonna attempt with a regular sewing needle tonight, as i have bought a 1.2mm ring [11], and last time i was trying to get a 1.6mm through. Hopefully it will work! I just wanna say, i did mine both times without ice, but pleeeeeeeeeease sterilise the needle! As my friend was off school for 3 days because hers swelled up, due to a non-sterile needle! And as a tip, make a little dot where your planning the piercing, it helps =D

Love to you all X

Btw, dont JUST push to get the needle through, once its pierced the first layer of skin, twist it =]!

So of course I thought everything would be chill after reading some of this, but I guess I didn't factor in that I'm a huge stickler for pain. So I did everything, I cleaned the area, I sterilized a needle, I rinsed with listerine, etc, etc. So I'm halfway through, and if you aren't pressing the needle through really hard, then it's going to take a while to get it through. My face started turning extremely white, and I immediately had to take the needle out (at this point, I could let go and the needle was hanging I was so far into the lip) which hurt a lot, and then I proceeded to puke because of the pain. For now I'm waiting it out with the needle in halfway through, so I can finish it, but just remember this process takes a little while if you're a chicken about it.

I had my lip (not to be confused with labret) pierced a little over a year ago by a professional for $30 (including jewelry) and while I think that most times you would probably be okay doing at home IF you take good care of it, I would still recommend getting it done by a pro for many reasons. 1.) It's a sterile environment 2.) The piercer is skilled and has knowledge of you anatomical structure 3.) A good piercing parlor will tell you all the does and don'twhich can be even more important when dealing with an oral piercing However if your that hard-up for cash Ill give you some tips...Use non-flavored anti-bacterial mouthwash often, sea salt=good, soap and water are also good IF you rinse out very well (or else the soap can actually cause an infection) DON'T use alcohol and DON'T use neosporean or other creams.

Listen people! The Pro's Know What They Are Doing That Is Why They Are paid So Much, Besides The Costs Of Clean needles. The Only Way To Actually Clean a Needle Is to Autoclave it. The Reason Why You Should Not Do It YourSelf Is that 90% Of Those That Do It Themselves Do Not Put It In Strait, And 30% That Do The Piercing Right Still Get Infected Just Because They Do Not Know Proper Care. I Have Been Horrified At What I Have Heard On Here, I Do Not Think Those That Have Died Over An Infection Are Going to Be Posting Here ^tp above m^ Is Right People Die From Infections All The Time, To Think You Will Be The Lucky One Like A Lot Of These Folks Here Is Stupid.

Hi there. I pierced my own Labret. But not with an earing or anything. I got a sterile 14g needle, and the labret bar. I didn't do it center for the reason that I wanted 2. I pierced one on the center left, and one on the center right. I clean it and wash with salt water and whatnot. I would like to know though if there are any risks that I still need to worry about. I sterilized everything. If its still sore in about 7 days, should I worry?

I really enjoy doing piercings myself but what are the pros and cons from you guys with it done, could I hurt myself really bad if I hit a wrong nerve or something. Or just let me know how much I would have to dish out to have it done professionally.

i'm 20 years old, and just dont feel like paying for something i can do myself. sterilize the nail, safty pin, whatever you choose to use with flame and then alcohol. keep the pierced area clean. all should be fine. infections are the result of poor hygene.

It isn't the piercing itself but the aftercare that determines the possibility of infection. Having it pierced by a professional does not have hardly anything to do with whether or not it will become infected. As long as you use the proper gauge needle that is properly sterilized, such as those that you get from BMEShop.com, you will have no issues. Be sure to use the proper jewelry for the piercing too, because an 18-20ga ear stud is not going to heal the piercing properly. I have done several of my own piercings now, and have had no problems at all while following simple guidelines. I prefer to be pierced in the privacy of my own home instead of being touched by strangers that charge $60 in markup.

Hmm i think that anyone who trys to pierce anyn part of there body should at least get it done by a pro.. and id you plan on piercing your tounge by your self.. THINK AGAIN there is a 80% CHANCE OUT OF A 100% that youll die.. so eh.. i say get it done by a pro.. but if you want to do ears and maybe nose i guess its ightt to do it by your self but if your not planning on dieing anytime soon DONT pierce your tounge.. and you might not want to take a chance with your belly button.. cause it gets really easily infected.. and puffs up HUGE.. as i had expiernce:P haha butt eh hope you read this .. xoxPiercedxox

piercing your lip is bad. depending on where you pierce it. mine is was on the center left side of lip. half a snake bite. :) but it got infected. but when you pierce, your able to hit a nerve and possibly could end up paralyzing half your face! lol. i chew tabacco and that doesnt help either. it made it burn...

Hi,

Between the lot of us we have over 60 piercings, We advise that you DO NOT do it yourself, if something happened, you would be screwed!  There is a lot of stupid people out there, that think they know what they are doing, but they don't.  Save a few euro each week (or whatever currency you have) and get it done then, at least with that you get the after care and security, that if something went wrong you can go back and it will be sorted for you!!!  If u rush into it, your obviously not a 100% sure about it.

Come on, kids. Is it so bad waiting for a few years till you're actually allowed?
Piercings aren't all they're hyped up to be, either.
Why don't you babies talk 2 your parents instead of potentially wrecking&scarring your face and causing unnecessary pain 'coz you'll just take it out any way?
I know you wont listen to me because you haven't listened to anyone else. If you're going to do it, it's your choice. Just think about what you're doing and if you do really want to pierce yourself.

maybe its just me but i dont c the point in getting things prof done, all they want is your money, get it prof if its a dangerous one. but ears eyebrown lips nose's , just go for it and b safe. i have 7 cartilage piercings, 2 at the top 2 in the middle my tragus, conch, rook. most of which i did myself, (DO NOT DO YOUR OWN ROOK IT WILL HURT HIKE A BIT*H)  and 6 lobe piercings i also have my tongue done (prof) belly (prof) nipple (unprof) eyebrow(prof) lip which i did last might. if that adds to 18 then yeah woo. :P if your not confident about where to pierce then find out first, dont b daft n use sewing needles safyt pins or (nails):{, thast just dangerous. just go look online for a piercing sit ethat will ship to where u live and does not require you to be a buisness or over 18 unless you are, also buy alcohol wipes, and preferable stainless steel clamps. as that will make life much easier n there not expensive, i bout everything i needed for 5 piercings for £15  and there allfine. i ait to sure bout my lip. i did that yesterday and its really swollen and it bled alot, but if it starts to go septic or gets fatter the ring is out in a flash. oh yeah, do not use unslerile or wrong sized jewelery ur just asking for regection or migration. (falling out through the skin) or infections, the skin needs to be able to get proper blood flow or the skin bein trapped will die of oxeygen starvation. i aint no piercer i have just done my reaserch. i am 16 if anyone wants advice on any of the things i have mentioned or want aftercare msn me sarahrenton0489@hotmail.com. becasue i think ive rambeled here long enough. lol.

I peirced my bellybutton a few weeks ago. and it didnt hurt at all... i numbed it with ice first! but make sure, that when you peirce anything you have hot water near by... after you poke a whole pour hot water on it and it opens the whole a little bit so it heals quicker and i stuck an earing in there and it was alot easier with the hot water. but i dont sugest peircing your tongue oe bellybutton by yourself. tongue- you can hit a major vane... and bellybutton.... you can peirce it in the wrong place and never have kids again...  just be careful!

Y'all sound like little school girls. "Will it hurt" "what about the Veins" "My parents don't agree" If your so scared THEN DON'T DO IT. Don't any of you have common sense? Of course there are disadvantages. Especially for your lip. Get it done professionally. Yeah, you have to pay a little bit, but don't let that stop you. Thats why kids have money, to spend it on them selves. Would you rather give up 20-30 dollars or take the risk of paralyzing your face. And don't think that thats not a risk, because I can guarantee that NONE of you are doctors (providing that you ALL say that you either are getting you lip done or already are)so unless you have had years of training you never know what awaits you and that needle underneath your skin. As of pain, think about it, you are sticking this thick needle through your face. Through you lip (did you know that your lip has more nerves then any other part of you body?) OF COURSE its going to hurt! Jeesh!

its really quite simple, all you need to do is get the right equipment, don't use something as small as a thumb tack though, because your lip tends to stretch back as the needle is going through, your best bet is a safety pin, followed by a nice barbell, preferably 14 gauge as that will slide through OK, you can go to the mall and buy barbells, just check hot topic and pacific sun, and keep it nice and clean, I've pierced my own lip once and my own ear 27 times, i have had negligence issues with my ear, and it has gotten extremely swollen, so once again, just keep it clean, like the guy that posted above me stated, you can die from a piercing that is left unkept, and there are no veins in your lips, just many nerve endings, if you hit one of there it will feel like something popped, and perhaps hurt a bit, and a bit of swelling in any piercing is normal, the only things i would strongly advise against you piercing yourself is tongue, eyebrow, and the penis/ clitoris, as well as surface piercings that are on the wrists, etc such things exist as veins people just be sensible

You can do it by yourself but sterilize and if doing something with known veins check it out first. But the lip is fine no major veins to look out for.

or you can all pay the $25.00 and get it done professionally.  or spend the 2 dollars and buy PIERCING NEEDLES! Ive had my lip pieced professionally 2 times (one on each side) and i would do it again.. it doesnt hurt at all. if you are dumb enough to do it yourself or too cheap to pay someone just make sure you keep it clean, and make sure you actually clear the colored portion of your lip... and please use jewelry designed for your lip.. it will save a lot of pain and lower the risk of infection... anyways.. i still stress to get it done by a pro.. they're called professionals for a reason!

I pierced my lip a few weeks ago. I'm proud to say I didn't numb it or anything. All i did was stab a needle through my lip, then put in the ear'ring. ( For now. I get my labret in a day or so. )I suppose using a regular ear ring is fine. I haven't had any problems yet. If you do decide to do it, then i suggest you clean it VERY well everyday. I rinse my mouth with salt water ( water with a teaspoon of slat ) after I eat, and stuff. I love my labret. Everyone comments on how wonderful it looks too. So...My advice....Well...You get it.

If you plan to do it yourself, be careful.
Make sure you have a long enough ring for it, and make sure the area and the needle is steral. (sp)
Take a lighter and light the end of the needle, [it's going to get hot, beware] and apply ice to the skin.
Make sure to slick the needle in straight. I didn't and it looked retarded as hell.
-.-
I would say go to a professional, I'm going in a couple days to get it re-done.

For all of you younglings out there who are wanting to hide a LIP piercing from your parents...don't bother trying. Just wait until you move out, it's the easiest way.

As for me, I have a quick question: I had snake bites, did them myself, healed up perfectly, no problems, blah blah blah. Well, when I went to jail(won't get into that..)they made me take out all the piercings. The snake bites healed up, and scarred over, since when I got out my mum had lost all my studs, and I never bothered buying new ones. My question is, is it dangerous to re-pierce straight through the scar, or should I just leave it alone? e-mail me your answers, please. EclipsedMoon@hotmail.com

MY STORY N ADVICE! Well i did my lip a few days ago, i used a  needle [ normal sized ] firstly i put ice in a tissue n placed on my lip until very cold. then i removed the needle from the boiling pan of water positioned it and began the unpainful process. It didn't hurt, there was the occasional ouch but nothing over the top. to help pierce i twisted the needle occasionally. The last bit of skin was a little difficult - not to much, i just pushed the needle and skin against my teeth and it went straight through.It is easy to hide also because my mom would go crazy if she new i had it done, At the moment i have a earring in it however, i am going to change it because the earring back can get annoying. if ANYONE needs any help or advice, dont hesitate to ask me on msn [ holliefox@msn.com ] ill help you with anything :D

ok umm i dont believe the story about someone dying..
anywho i just did mine this morning
i got worried at first because there was like swelling and a red spot around it,but then i remembered i was holding ice on it for about 10 minutes.its fine now. my friend told me not to use alcohol to clean it,to use antibacterial solution instead. [like the kind they give you when you pierce something]so yeah
it didnt hurt at all just felt uncomfortable because my lip was numb but hell i think i put it in a wrong place by mistake,but its all good. i did it to my right side.

Your friend must be dumb, you shouldn't pierce your lip yourself if you aren't going get help if it gets infected. I can't stress enough how dangerous it is to get an infection and not tell a parent or doctor. Doctors have things called: Doctor Patient confidentiality. So if you don't want them to tell your parents they can't unless its life threatening/fatal. On another note your friend sounds like a Rebel without a cause and was stupid. Plain and simple: Don't Pierce anything yourself unless you are willing to tell someone and get in trouble if gets infected. If your parents don't want you to, then if you do do it be sure you can tell them or someone. If you can't afford it then still tell someone. It is dangerous, if it gets infected. - Morbid Ewok, Omnipotent Ruler of Webspace

i pierced under my lip myself. you wanna know how i did it. i got a safety pin and put it in fire until it was red hot then i stuck it in rubbing alcohol. i grabbed my lip and jammed it through then i waited a second then i pulled it out i grabbed the barbell and stuck it in. i woke up the next morning but the bar was not there the bead was on my bed and there was something in my throat. so i ended up sticking sterilized earing in there. if you do do it your self just keep it clean.

What is wrong with you people?  Do you have any idea what you're really doing to yourselves?  You can't pierce your labret with an earring stud.  First of all, it's blunt, causing more trauma to the body than is necessary.  Secondly, all piercings, especially oral ones, tend to swell.  The posts on a regular earring are far too short to accomodate the swelling that is sure to happen.  And how are you healing these piercings?  I've read that you use alcohol, neosporin, and listerine.  All of these things are BAD NEWS.  The alcohol is just going to act as an irritant, the neosporin isn't intended for puncture wounds, which is precisely what a piercing is (just look on the label), and listerine is too harsh to use on a fresh piercing; it kills all of the bacteria in your mouth, some of which is needed by your body to maintain an equilibrium.  So, for all of you twelve year olds out there shoving dirty needles through your skin, I can only give you two pieces of advice.  One, wait until you're actually old enough to get it done professionally.  Two, ASK YOUR PARENTS.  If they know that you could be harming yourself by piercing yourself, they would be more willing to take you to an actual piercer.  So please, before you end up scarring your bodies, at least read a little, and think about what you're doing!

Foolish things.

1. A sewing needle or a safety pin are not very sharp at all, and so self piercing with one of those actually hurts more and takes longer.

Go to a pro. It hurts less, it's quicker and safer. The needles used are sharper and therefore pass through easier.

2. Earrings are not suitable jewellery. You'll end up with gum erosion which can lead to loss of teeth.

3. You can't sterilize with boiling water and alcohol alone. It won't do much at all.

4. Your parents may be against it, but waiting a few years so you can take yourself to a studio is worth it. Research your piercing online and try to educate them too, reassure them it's safe when done in the correct enviroment by a pro.

5. A lot of people self-pierce. Those who end up with good, healed, well placed piercings are the ones who understand the piercing process and who buy the correct tools. End of the day, it costs about the same as getting done by a piercer.

6. If you're still insistant, then go and talk to your local studio, and ask them about the procedure. Each piercing is slightly different. You don't have to pay or have anything done just to talk to them, and you might be able to buy sterile jewellery at least.

7. Research! Research! try bmezine.com

Piercing your lip yourself is stupid. You can develop infections, make it crooked, likely you don't have the correct type of needles or jewelry to put into it, and often will do it slowly enough that you will more then double the amount of irritation caused than you would have had to deal with had you gone to a professional. You will hit veins when piercing your lip, thats why it bleeds. BUT, what that question likely actually meant was that there aren't any major blood vessels in your lip that will cause major blood loss. Also, I'd like to point out something about the comment above mine. As sad as someone dying is, they didn't die from piercing their lip. They suffocated due to not taking care of a minor injury. Aftercare is an important key in having a GOOD piercing. You cannot rely comepletely on others, there is a degree of personal responsibility involved with getting/keeping a piercing.

Please don't take this the wrong way.  I've been young and pierced myself with little consequence, but it's NOT a good idea.  Without the proper sterilization equipment, tools, and training, you can end up infected, scarred, and stuck with a crooked or misplaced piercing.  Professionals are not just "taking your money".  They have a lot of experience, plus proper knowledge of sterilization techniques, cross contamination, anatomy, and proper jewelry choice.

1) Ear studs or hoops (the kind you get at Claire's) are NOT appropriate jewelry for a lip piercing.  They are for the most part too short and too thin.  Plus, they're made out of cheap metal that may irritate you.
2)  Sewing needles and safety pins (and...nails?!) are not good to pierce with.  A hollow beveled needle is like a circular scalpel.  It cuts a neat little rounded hole (side note: it doesn't remove a tube of skin) with minimal trauma to surrounding tissues.  Ever heard someone say that skin breaks like glass?  Forcing a blunt needle through yourself tears your skin into submission, leading to scarring and a longer healing time.
3) Sure, you can kill some germies with a lighter or some rubbing alcohol.  But to make something sterile (as in safe to insert into your flesh), you need an autoclave.  Your local piercer should have one.
4)  Alcohol and peroxide kill forming cells.  They make your piercing take longer to heal.  Neosporin doesn't allow enough oxygen into the piercing (also making it take longer to heal).  Anti-bac soap is just plain irritating and unnecessary.  Use warm salt water (1/4 teaspoon to 1 cup warm water), and soak your piercing in it once or twice a day.  Clean it real good with water in the shower.  That's plenty.

I'll get down off my soapbox now.  Thank you.

Self-piercing can be quite risky, those who say it isn't are quite ignorant to the actual facts.
First of all: the lip -in most cases- contains veins that if you hit while piercing, can cause major defects. "Proper" sterilization is obtained only through an autoclave or a chemiclave (and if you don't know what one is, chances are, you don't know about proper sterilization), and ear studs are not proper jewelery (they're not made to accommodate swelling, are never the proper gauge to pierce with and just are very "sketchy" so to say).

I will admit, I pierced my own lip. But I also used gloves, proper needles, proper jewelery and I'm training to be a professional piercer.

Heed my words, I know what I'm talking about.

By the way: safety pins are NOT proper to pierce with... They're not made with the proper metal to pierce with/wear (a rule of thumb is to stick with surgical stainless steel or something along those lines), and again, they're not the proper gauge (unless you have the ol' honkin' type).

There is so much stuff that you people really need to take into consideration here.  Blood born pathogens being one.  If you have contaminated tools a lighter is NOT going to properly sterilize things.  The other is long term effects such as this, http://encyc.bmezine.com/?Gum_erosion, which will eventually lead to tooth loss.  An ear piercing stud will lead to this much faster and also has risks of growing into your lip, http://encyc.bmezine.com/?Embedded_Labret which will then have to be surgically removed.  I really recommend going to a professional, and if you aren't old enough wait.  Or you could show your parents some of the bad images and maybe talk them into consenting to help keep you from hurting yourself.

Wow. Just wow. You people are terrible.
Let me start off by saying that I myself am a self-pierced 15 year old. The different between me and most of you is that I did my homework. You didn't. I ordered the proper stuff. Kept it clean as possible. Researched the complications, common mistakes and consequences of everything. I waited almost 2 years from when I first wanted it to when I did it. You're all being EXTREMELY unsterile, and you're disobeying your parents. And chances are, you aren't doing any of these things as a personal want. You are probably following the crowd and want it taken out in 2 monthes anyways.
Wait until you can get it done proffesionally or until you 100% know what you are doing.
And wait until you are allowed to and until you are doing it for the right reasons.
Seriously.

Okay, guys. Seriously, listen to this, okay? I'm 18 years old. I turned 18 in February. I have pierced myself (only my lobes) and stretched my piercings. I currently have 5/8" lobes, 6 gauge, 10 gauge, 10 gauge, 14 gauge, and one 12 gauge standard cartilage piercing (which my friend did with a sterile, beveled needle. I would NOT  recommend piercing anything but your earlobes and maybe your cartilage by yourself.  Seeing as I am 18, I could get anything I want do (I have 2 tattoos and my nipples pierced, BOTH DONE PROFESSIONALLY) but I still live under the roof of my parents.  My parents will also be paying for my college education.  Until I no longer need financial support, I am respecting their wishes and NOT getting some of the piercings I want. Long story short, WAIT until you can get any piercings you want done professionally.  If you don't have the money, go babysit for a few nights.  It's not that expensive to get it done right.  In regards to the person  who said they got it done professionally but it turned out terribly, make sure the shop you go to is a respectable, good shop.. also, PLEASE make sure the piercer is competent and knows what he or she is doing! I cannot stress enough how important it is to WAIT until you have access to a good, professional shop.  Piercing yourself with safety pins, sewing needles, etc.. and using EARRINGS in a lip is INCREDIBLY STUPID.  Please, WAIT until you can get your piercings done professionally or at the very least, use the correct jewelry and needles!!!

I own a tattoo shop and am a professional piercer, and I started by piercing myself.  This was a bad idea.  Take it from someone who has been on both sides of the needle.  You run a risk of serious damage both from incorrect jewelry and from infection.  If you take an infected piercing out it can close on both sides and trap the infection inside.  When this happens you will be lucky to have to go to the doctor and have it lanced with an eight guage needle.  If you aren't lucky you might end up like lostcontinent'sfriend.  Don't be stupid, and if you're going to, it's irresponsible to encourage other people to risk their own health.

oh my god... seriously. do NOT pierce your own lip. there is a reason why professionals are CALLED that, and there's a reason why they have stringent safety methods they had to adhere to, and not just pick up the nearest sewing needle or nail (?!) and stick a lighter underneath it.  a lot of people seem to be asking how they can do it at home because "their mom and dad are mean and wont let them get their lip pierced!" ...you do realise that they will probably look at your face at some point, and see the infected gaping wound that will be your lip if you shove an earring through there. aside from being incredibly unhygienic, that just doesn't look good either. so if the idea of it getting infected doesn't matter to you because you're too OMG rebelli0us 111!! then how about because you will look like an idiot. i cant believe how stupid some kids are to risk  scarring themselves permanently just because they are too lazy/cheap/unwilling to go against the 'rents  to go get a piercing done at an actual piercing studio. get a clue, kiddos.

You guys you guys you guys. What are you all like, 12-16 right?
First of all, since nobody has answered other peoples questions..if you hit a vein, your face will not get paralyzed, but you WILL know, because there will be blood. and lots of it.
you should NOT use a normal earring, because those are usually only 18-20 gauge. By a professional, the smallest they will pierce your lip is 14G, because even at 16G, it is so small, that if it gets tugged, you are risking getting it ripped out.
Lastly, you guys shouldn't be piercing things by yourselves anyways! If your parents say no, it's because they know what they're talking about. Get it done by a pro when you're 18. You can wait. You're not gonna die if you DON'T get it done.

DONT THINK THERE ARENT RISKS BECAUSE PEOPLE SAY SO ON THIS FORUM!!! THEY ARENT PROFESSIONALS. The only good advice was the person who recommended BMEZINE.COM, and the ones who recommend you dont do it! Please all the people who look at this. Don't be an idiot and pierce with a sewing needle, earring post, or safety pin. They might turn out okay, but there are too many risks involved to take a chance. If you are going to pierce yourself, at least do it with a real piercing needle (and dispose of it correctly) and read the DIY on bmezine.com. Also, the information on bmezine is in NO WAY instructions on how to pierce yourself. The professionals there would recommend that you go to a REPUTABLE! shop, but they know people will do it themselves, and have posted some safely precautions and risks involved. If you cant spell permission and allow and STERILE, or use spell check (theres a little check box right below the post form), you probably shouldn't be piercing yourself.

Fast answer: you can't do it safely at home with items you are likely to already have.  

  To start with, alcohol doesn't sterilize.  Period.  You *can* get cold-sterilizing solutions from medical supply companies, but they are extremely toxic, difficult to use properly, and require a rinse with sterile water.  (Why?  Because if you don't rinse them, you are putting highly toxic chemicals directly into your fresh piercing, and if you use tap water, then you've just undone the sterilizing.)  Sewing needles and safety pins are an exceptionally poor choice for piercing for many reasons: they aren't the right gauge, they aren't really sharp (not in the way that, say, a syringe needle is), and you can't adequately clean them.  (Why?  Because with the exception of ETO sterilization (which you absolutely, positively can not do at home), all sterilization methods will cause them to corrode.  This is a Very Bad Thing.)  Jewerly is another issue.  Body jewely that you are likely to find outside of a reputable piercing studio tends to be either a low grade stainless steel or chrome plated, and be improperly made.  Low grades of stainless steel and chrome are NOT biocompatile; this means that piercings tend to not heal, which in turn means that you have an open wound subject to infection.  And don't forget cleaning the area properly; again, alcohol is a poor choice.  You could probably find a good iodine-based scrub at a decent medical supply store, but aren't likely to have it at home.  Cleansing the area properly is *very* important; otherwise bacteria on the skin could be moved into the piercing during either the intial proceedure or during jewelry insertion.

There is no easy, safe way to do your own piercings at home.  If you choose to do so anyway, you take risks that range from minor (priecings that aren't where you wanted them, scarring from poor quality jewelry, rejection of piercings) to very serious (systemic, life-threatening infections).  At a minimum, to try and do things safely at home you would have to spend somewhere around $150 on supplies.  Or you could go to a good piercing studio and get the same piercing for about $50 (Try http://www.safepiercing.org to find a reputable, skilled piercer.)

For what it's worth, I currently have 28 piercings, and have had somewhere over 100 (most lost due to rejection).

I know it sucks when you are underaged and your parents won't let you get a piercing.  But piercing yourself is NOT the way to show them that you are mature enough for a piercing!  Your parents will FLIP OUT if they told you no piercings, and then they discover that you did one yourself.  Furthermore, doing piercings on yourself can be incredibly stupid and dangerous.  Yes, some people can do it safely.  Most people can't.  Using a lighter to heat a needle doesn't really sterilize it; you need an autoclave (a professional pressure item that sterilizes jewelry and piercing supplies)!  Using the wrong jewelry can be very dangerous, as well.  You should never use an earring for a labret piercing, because of the sharp inside part of the earring, and if they are just a typical earring, they aren't the correct gauge or length.  

That being said, I myself have done a few self-piercings.  I pierced my own belly-button at age 14.  I know now that the way I did it was incredibly un-safe: I used a safety pin that I heated with a lighter, shoved it through my bellybutton, and then stuck an earring through after it.  I had to take it out within a few days because I was a soccer player.  When I was 19, I pierced my tongue web myself.  I again pierced with a safety pin, but at least this time I had the correct jewelry, and let this piercing heal until I removed it a month later because it was annoying. . .probably because it wasn't at the correct location in my mouth!

Anyway, you should try to just wait until you are 18 and can pay for a piercing.  It's just not worth it to screw up a piercing.  Do you really want terrible scars or infections?  Think about it.

piercing yourself, unless you are in a sterile environment and have the RIGHT equipment and the proper knowledge, is both ignorant and dangerous.

Post earrings, safety pins, nails or sewing needles are not proper jewelry/piercing equipment to do a labret or side lip piercing with. With home piercings such as these you run a much higher chance of infection in the piercing, or having the piercing reject (a very painful and SCARRING process).

And for your information? Heating a needle, using rubbing alcohol, or soap and water, are NOT going to sterilize whatever object you all are trying to pierce yourselves with. In a professional environment needles are put in an autoclave and practically BOILED to make certain that they are clean. Then they are placed in sealed packages where they remain in that state until they are used, generally by someone wearing surgical gloves.

So really kids, wait to get it done, either until you can convince mommy and daddy to sign for it, or until you turn 18. Any piercing done with a household object is ridiculously foolish.

God guys... At least get an older friend to get you proper supplies online. As a piercer, I would like to say this: a safety pin, or a sewing needle, whatever, is NOT a viable option. Use REAL piercing needles that have been autoclaved, rubbing alcohol and a lighter won't do a damn thing to sterilize your needle! It's dangerous and just plain stupid. Please, just read this and do it right: http://www.bmezine.com/news/edit/A50901/artdiyig.html
Self piercing IS a big deal. I did my nostril, eyebrow, navel, clit hood, and ears myself. But I did them RIGHT, with sterile needles and a sterile process. If you can't get access to sterile supplies, then well, 18 isn't too long to wait.

Okay me again,
I just read some guy about his eyebrow.
Now this is a beast, because eyebrows are prone to grow out, which is basically your body rejecting the piercing because it's close to the surface.
Soo, same as what I wrote before.
But clean it an awful lot.
And good luck really.

I pierced myself once. My best friend and I wer in his basement. We found a nail gun that still worked so we blew the dust off it and plugged it in. He used close pins to hold my ears up, and we picked up a rusty nail off the floor. I didn't want tetanus, so we dipped it in clorox bleach and he licked it off and stuck it in the nail gun.
Then he shot my ear. He missed the first time so I have two holes. My ears turnig green but I can't feel it anymore.
I think its gunna be okay.

this is to all the dumb ass emo kids that are trying to pierce themselves.
1. a lighter is not an effective way to sanitize...
2. your parents WILL notice, don't even try to deny it
3. earing studs at clairs and malls etc are made from scrap metal and are no where near medical implant grade
4. a safety pin, sewing needle, etc is not meant for skin
5. don't trust sites on the internet for "self piercing kits"
......
......
and the list goes on and on and on

do it professionally get your parents approval (they like it when you act mature and treat them with any kind of respect) or wait till you are out on your own paying taxes and in a state of mind that doesn't involve blunt scaps of metal ripping through your flesh  and nerves

Wow, I'm a professional piercer and I had no idea you could 'sterilize' a needle with a lighter. Guess I wasted that $2100 on the auto-clave.
I have a few pieces of advice here.
1. If you have to ask on the Internet how to do it, don't.
2. You need an auto-clave to sterilize a needle (there are some chemical ways of sterilization, but none of you - or me, for that matter - would have access to those methods and they are even more expensive)
3. ear studs are not appropriate jewelry for healing anything. You need surgical stainless steel or titanium, properly fitted jewelry.
4. Cleanliness is very important in piercings. Did you know that a simple staph infection can lead to gangrene? It turns into necrotizing facitis, look up some pics and see what I mean. Guess some of you will find out when the surgeon removes all the dead tissue from you lip/eyebrow/navel/whatever.
5. 'trainee' piercers are called apprentices. An apprenticeship usually lasts a year. After that year, you generally get to learn genital piercings, surface piercings, etc. It seriously takes that long to learn what you need to know and practice enough to be competent. A pro or apprentice will not tell you to do a piercing yourself, it's too dangerous and there are too many possible complications. So the idiot claiming to be a trainee probably works at claires.

6. Pay the damn money to get it done by a pro. If your parents won't let you get it done, then wait until you are old enough to get your own place and set your own rules. Basically - grow up

Unless you happen to have a rather advanced knowledge of anatomy and sterilization, it is not a wise idea to pierce yourself. You may get lucky and not have any problems, but it is always smarter to be pierced professionally. If you care about yourself and are serious about piercing, wait until you can get to a shop.

Let's see...I went in Wednesday and got mine pierced at a SHOP. It's the only SMART way to do it. You guys really do need some professional help if you think that doing this yourself is safe and sanitary. It's pitiful that you are going to risk serious infection by using nonsteril equipment. It's better to pay a bit of money and have it done right the first time. I paid a whole 40 bucks for mine, not that bad and totally worth it.

As the fiance of a professional piercer, and the "bearer" of several piercings myself (2 helix in each ear, 2 normal lobes, 2 10g lobes, eyebrow, anti-eyebrow, Monroe/Madonna, Christina, and septum) I think I can speak up and say that your health and safety is more than worth the money of having a piercing professionally done.

Sewing needles and safety pins are NEVER a safe thing to use on piercings, because unlike hollow surgical needles, they do not allow a place for the flesh to go. Instead the flesh around the area is ripped through, and can be permanently damaged. Another thing is that even if you burn or boil the needle, you are not guaranteed that it is sterile unless it comes in a hermetically vacuum sealed package.

DIY piercings run the risk of developing abscess, which, if gone unrecognized, can dislodge and move through your bloodstream and can kill you if one were to reach your heart or brain.

I have seen numerous piercing disasters, almost 100% being due to improper care and DIY piercings, from loss of the tissue around the piercing, to heart failure due to abscess.

I know that kids will be kids, on that want what I want when I want it principle. But it's better to spend the money to ensure a sterile environment and safety than to have to pay for it later in pain and medical bills.

I feel really sorry for the moron who said 'those who won't pierce themselves are just to wussy'. The reason we don't do it ourselves it because we actually have brain cells, do the research into piercings (check out www.bmezine.com) and know that professionals are really the only answer.

For those of you tempted, WAIT UNTIL YOU ARE 18 AND GET IT DONE PROPERLY. You will really regret it if you mess up and are left with messy scaring on your face.

Wow, grow up kids. I saw one person who called those who say it's stupid to pierce yourself "wimpy." It's not wimpy.
There are people who are just trying to watch out for immature kids who don't know what they're doing, trying to be "rebellious" because their parents don't allow them to get piercings.
If your parents won't let you get it, then leave it alone. You'll turn 18 before you know it and it will be much safer to get it done professionally in a clean studio.
And using a flame over a safety pin does not consider it "sterile." Piercers use chemicals and autoclaves to actually sterilize their piercing equipment, and things found around the home are not even near enough to make something sterile.
If you aren't intelligent enough to know what the hell you're doing, or intelligent enough to even spell correctly, then you really don't need to bother with getting a piercing.
Grow up a little first, and give it more thought.

"I'm piercing my eyebrow myself and i want to know if it is dangerous. i am also planning on piercing my lip, is that dangerous?"

Well, if it's done incorrectly your eyebrow will sag and only have a chance at normality with surgery. Sounds fun doesn't it?

Kids, lip piercings are easily infected so use your judgement when you shove foreign objects through them.

Good luck.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with doing DIY piercings...As long as you have the right equipment, have researched what you're doing and realize that things can go wrong.
With that said...Do NOT use nails, sewing needles or any of that crap. XO Not to mention...My god, Sterilizing them with a lighter? How stupid could you be. :\ That's one of the worst things you could do. It's not cleaning it, It's adding more germs.

Well...this is stupid....all you kiddies on here who are going against your parents need to grow up.Think about it before you do it. Will you be able to keep up with the aftercare? Take the consequences when your parents find out? I thought I could, but I thought about it and let it heal.Doing it in a bathroom is unsanitary by the way. There are more germs in there than any other place in the house. If you insist on doing it and doing it by yourself, check out local shops and get your gages or what ever you use except earing, to be disinfected by an autoclave, it will kill all of the bacteria.
If you think about stretching the hole after you just get it done, trust me, advise that you let the area heal entirely or it hurts worse than the normal small quick leaving pain from the healed area.

it is pretty easy to pierce your lip. i did mine by myself but all i suggest is to first numb it with ice for a while and when it feels numb get a needle and start from the inside of your mouth(because if u start the other way it is harder, trust!) and then stick it in fast and it will kinda feel warm and then get a lip ring and stick it in after ok. bye

if you want to Peirce your lip yourself here are some tips.
1. Make sure that all of your tools you are using are sterile.
you want to prevent any type of infection.
2. Make sure that your hands are clean and that you have gloves on.
3. Do not use a regular earing from your ear.
Go purchase a lip ring
4. Make sure you are relaxed and in a quiet room
5. Have paper towling around.


Finally
Go get it done Professionally

peircing it yourself is prefectly fine and easy. but PLEASE make sure to get a sterile needle, which means it`s in some sort of packaging. (i used a 16g) use ice if you`re afraid of the pin. get a labret post, usually looks better and works faster. stick it in as soon as you`ve put the needle out and clean the peircing with some type of antiseptic immediately after and you`ll be fine. I`d really not suggest peircing it with a needle or with the earring itself unless you just really don`t care. do it saf, and it works prefectly and without much [or even any] pain.

labret posts ---> www.bodyartforms.com -- cheap and awesome quality

sterile peiricng needles ---> www.bewild.com [great quality needles, among other things]

i pierced my lip last night.
i just took 4 ibeprofen, numbed it with antiseptic gel, and put ice on it.
i didn't even feel it.
it's way swollen today but its going down with ice.
and they're no veins in your lip so don't worry about it.
make sure you brush your teeth a ton though
and clean it with bacetracin.

it doesnt hurt at all. and as for the person who said that people who do it themselves should get an infection, i think you can go to hell. i did mine myself for personal reasons, and as long as you practice even moderate aseptic technique, its just the same as getting it done pro. the only difference is you run the risk of doing it crooked, which can easily be avoided with a ruler, some string and a sharpie marker to mark the centerpoint.
  my labret turned out better then many of my friends who payed 50 bucks to go and get it done pro. all you need it a saftey pin, a lighter, and a bottle of alcohol.

I've just been reading through here as I'm looking to pierce my labret myself. I've had all my previous piercings done by a professional, who is absolutely brilliant. (They arn'tall just there to take your money). I wouldn't trust anyone else to do my piercings though as i'vebeen going there for so long.  From what i'veread I felt a bit worried about half the people here who are so afraid of their parents. Its your own body the worst they can do is forcibly make you take it out, but they probably wont care once its done (been there did that)  If your sure of what your doing, then go for it, but I recommend getting something done professionally first so you can at least see the process and realise they use certain tools for a reason.

I pierced my lip, it looks fab! not much pain, a little sore, and when you first do it your lip swell up like mad lol. When you do it disinfect your lip and the sewing needle then get some ice and put it to your lip and wait until it hurts because the pain of coldness will overwhelm the pain of the pin going through, the last piece of skin is really tuff and painful so take some paracetamol or neurofen (painkillers) twist the pin forward further and further until it go's through then keep it there for about 5 - 10 mins so it will mold around the shape of the pin. Then when ou have what you want to put through preferably a labret stud or ring or even a disinfected earing quickly ease the pin out and put the stud/ring through and clip it or twist it tight, you should do it when your alone for the day or night so you can keep it in for a fair while without your folkes seeing it, im only 14 im not a professional so if i were you i'dget it done by a real pro and save your lip from maybe getting infected. Or you can be stubourn like me and do it yourself at 11 o clock at night lol. thats my guide, bye bye P.S GET IT DONE BY A PRO! CYA !

Alright let's get one thing straight. If your going to pierce your lip "Your self" You should probably find a friend who has all the right equipment. It's fast and clean. The needle goes straight through. No twisting or weird things like that. It should be a piercing needle not a safety pin.

I pierced my lip two years ago and it's completely fine. Never got infected, never even hurt after I did it. I also used a regular sewing machine needle which is about a 14g, but i keep a 16g in it. I dont recommend using one of those needles but i'm just saying that it worked. Just remember to clean the area before and after you pierce it. Also swishing salt water around in your mouth helps clean the inside. I will try to answer any further questions on AIM, my sn is bluerpsnow

well.. it depends whether the type of person you are. so be it if you want to go pierce it yourself. its your own face and body. i say do what you like but i strongly advise professional piercing. although there are very strong precautions to take.. if you do do it yourself just making sure everything is clean and sterile. do NOT use fire at the tip of the needle as this does leave carbon. sounds yummy as that goes through your lip. remember to clean the piercing area with strong alcohol, or say mouthwash. and its much easier if you do get it done by a pro as they use clamps and it stops the flow through your lip (not as painful!)
so do take care and precautions. and think wisely. GO PRO! :)

I love piercings and I have done my nose, 7 piercings on my ears (I have also streched my earlobes in a matter of weeks), I have pierced my own belley button and my nipple. I suggest when doing a piercing do your research on how to do it properly. and if you really want to do a good job, go to a piercing parlor and ask them for advice

hey sup. To pierce your labret (lip) what you need to do is first get a sterile hollow tri beveled needle of 14g or 16g. Clean your lip with some kind of cleansor. Choose your placement and mark it with a water soluble mark. Clamp that spot with forceps. Check for veins. Position your needle and just push it strait through fast. Stick in your labret jewlery (use a long stud for when it swells) and put it into the hollow end of the needle. Pull it through with the needle and than screw on the ball and voila your done. You have to use a labret stud and NOT an earing or when the lip swells the earstud will be engulfed by your lip. That at least is the aproximate procedure but i still recomend that you have it done by a profesional unless u cant ie your too young. Hope this helps. EKS

I want to get my lip pierced, but my parents are against it because it might get infected, and that it might inter fear with the fact that I play trumpet. So here's what I need to know:
-Does It Hurt?
-Will It Get Infected?
-After It's Pierced, Can I Put One Of My Earings In?
-Will I Still Be Able To Play Trumpet?

Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
