|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.
