I just asked my piercer the same thing a week ago.
I have had a lip piercing for 8 months.
I wanted to know when I could remove it for any length of time.
I was told never for an extended length of time.
That is without it shrinking and maybe healing shut.
Especially on the inside.
Everybody is different so some can leave them out for a long time.
All you can do is try it.
Have a taper ready for reinsertion and good luck.

It really depends on two things: amount of time pierced and gauge of jewelry. Currently I have an 8ga lip ring that I can leave out for around 15 hours. It is a little snug going back in but not painful. Also I've had this piercing for almost four years. Those two things make a big deal.

I got mine pierced a couple months ago; it hurts, but not anymore than a lobe ear piercing would.  I've had the cartiledge pierced on my ears in four different places and those hurt way more than my lip piercing.

i have 2 lip piercings and a teardrop(pointing out and down from corner of eye) and none of them hurt as much as they felt .. good. I dont have a HIGH tolerance for pain I guess I just like it. My first one (middle lower lip) took about 5 months to fully heal and my top lip took only 3 weeks or so. The teardrop has just healed recently and i got it about 2-3 months ago.

The only tip is to clean them! They will not get infected if you clean them with a q-tip with little soap and warm water. Clean it once when you wake up and once before you go to bed and after eating main meals. After it heals, just clean it when you wake up. They are easy and carefree once you get into the habit of it.

I have my lip pierced, and I've had it for 2 months.  I have a very low pain tolerance, but I find that it didn't hurt at all.  It was a little pinch, then it was over.
It healed really quickly, too.  Just be aware of your mouthwash and soap and water, and it should be set in a week or so.

The pain of any piercing or other body modification depends solely on the individual. Before I got my tragus pierced, most people told me that it wasn't TOO painful, or not painful at all, but a few others told me it was the worst [pain-wise] piercing to get. This shook me up a little, though not much, and I felt only a slight pressure when I finally got around to having my tragus pierced.
Infections really aren't as common as everyone seems to think. As long as the piercing is taken care of properly, there isn't much to worry about. Aftercare is actually a very controversial issue, as everyone seems to have different methods and different reasons for those methods, but I prefer to use warm [non-iodized] sea salt soaks. Just be sure to stay away from bactine, neosporin, peroxide, and anything alcohol or iodine based. Oh, and by the way, q-tips are NOT good to clean piercings with, as fibers from the q-tip can get lodged in the piercing, which can cause a follicular cyst.
Katy, how old are you, and why do you plan on piercing yourself? It's not something I would suggest but to a professional or someone with the highest standards of cleanliness and expertise. Please do get your piercings done professionally.

Hey, I'm 14, and I've wanted to pierce my lip for a while. My parents won't let me do it. I have no life, so I can't have another adult take me, and if I pierce it without them, they'll freak, and like freakin' lock me in my room. So basicly, I was wondering if you had N E ideas to persuade them to let me pierce it. They think it looks "BAD" cuz they R really dumb, and what not, so... Thanx

If you pierce your lip without them, I think they have pretty good reason to freak out, considering not only how unsafe DIY piercings are, but if a piercing studio would actually allow someone underage to get a piercing without any kind of consent from a parent/guardian or would allow any random adult to sign for you, they definitely need to be shut down, because not only is that illegal and a lawsuit waiting to happen but it really makes you wonder if the 'piercer' has any kind of morals or ethics at all. I know you probably hate to hear it, because I know how badly I used to hate hearing it, but hey, you ARE only fourteen. You've got the rest of your life to get pierced if your parents won't allow you to, so what's the rush? In my opinion, if someone really wants the piercing bad enough, they should be willing to wait for it, no matter how long it takes, just so long as they get it done under good conditions and professionally. If you have an upcoming birthday or something, ask them. But if they say no, do not rush into it. I think that it's better to wait and get it done the right way than to rush into it and end up with long-term damage and a medical bill, don't you agree?
Also, to Bekah, if you get your lip pierced and you take it out, especially while the piercing is so fresh, the hole will close up. You could perhaps have it pierced, wait until it heals, and then put a retainer in. Healing time should take between 6-8 weeks. As for positioning...well, if you check out BMEzine.com and go to the lip/cheek section under pictures/stories there will be lots to look at and lots to read about.

I got my lip pierced about a week ago, and I want to know about proper care. I know not to use peroxide and the like on the outside, as it will dry up and be more likely to infect, but my question is this : Is it alright to use Listerine or a by-product of this? I have heard that Listerine is bad to use for mouth piercing such as the tongue or the lip, but I haven't heard a reason why.

Thank you for your time, please respond. :)

I just had my lip done the other day, and I'll just answer all three of the most popular questions here.

1) Yes it hurts, how you take it and how badly is completly individual.

2) Aftercare is important, I've read a lot about it and found the most common way of caring for a lip piercing is to clean the outside with an antibacterial soap such as dial and use an antiseptic (non alchohol, such as Listerine) oral wash several times daily (if it's too intense you can dilute it with a little water).

3) Scaring depends on the person, some people heal better than others, but I've never seen anything more than a small dot from lip piercings.

Emma, I don't really know if you're supposed to use an alcohol thingy lol. I can't take alcohol anyway til I'm 18 so I didn't o.O For aftercare I just use salt mixed with water and dab it on my lip. *Shrugs*

I just recently got my lip done on the bottom left side.  I was totally petrified to do it and almost passed out but the guy who pierced it was totally awesome and talked to me forever and showed me all 6 of his lip piercings!!  I finally decided to do it!  It actually didn't hurt at all.  My uncle made fun of me cause I made him hold my hand but I let go before it was even done.  The only part that hurt was him straightening the ring since he had to make it crooked to put it in.  I really haven't had any pain since I did it unless something hits it wrong-- My friend even accidentally pulled it and it didn't hurt that bad!   I am sooo happy that  I didn't chicken out or anything.  I would tell anyone to do it who wants to but remember to not have any alcohol or drugs before you go-- it thins the blood and makes u bleed a ton!!

heLLO! i had my lip pierced about 10 hours ago. I was compleatly crapping myself. I had my nipple dun about 9 months ago, and that one really hurt. Im a bit of a wimp wen it comes to pain and i fainted wen i had my nipple done. I dont like MY blood outside MY body! but i was crappin myself when i was waiting for my lip. to be honest, i think the clamp they put on hurts more! (the clamp also helps because it restricts blood supply and prevents blood loss) When she put the needle through, it was what i expected it to feel like. I was fine while she put the stud in and looked in the mirror, the i started to go white and REALLY hot. my m8s said i went the same colour as when i had my nipple dun and thought i was gonna faint, but sum how, i didnt! i just sat there and waited untill i felt better. The lady who did it was really nice. she wouldnt let me leave untill iwas ok. I got it done in blue banana in cov. Wicked shop! and 10 hours l8er (after smoking and drinking juice and eating which i prob shoudnt) it just feels a bit numb, like when you have a tooth out at the dentis. But i love it and really hope it dont become infected. MY QUESTION, when people go on about aftercare, what is a Q-tip? i Use these sticks with a small amount of cotton on it, it that a Q-tip? Please let me know at murrays_wings@hotmail.com as i dont look on here nemore. Thanxs for reading and happy piercing!!! (go for it!)

by the way i have had my lip done for a few months now and i just want every one to know that the worst thing you can do is use alcohol mouthwash for after care ....by the way this also includes Listerine, Listerine is about 60 % alcoholic and i  highly disrecomend the usage of it ....allso  getting your lip done doesn't hurt at all an i didn't Evan have mine numbed however i do recommend you get it done professionally  thanks 4 Reading this bye bye xxx an good luck !!!

Okay here is my anwser... to some people.. who will bother to read this.
Lip Pieceing can hurt for some and others its cant, depends totaly on the person.
Now  lip pieceing is a oral place and it can become infeced easily, only if it isnt taken care of!
The after care is farly easily  you can use Sea salt, Saline Solution (not contact lens  cleaning solution)  or Natural tea tree oil rinse.
I was told by the piecers that it is beast to use Tea tree oil mouth wash for the first week or so... I prefer it over sea salt it leaves a nicer smell on your breath.

Your lip will sweall and become kinda big, but it can be easily fixed bu rubbing ice on the swollen part of your lip, or you can try slupies freezies or popcials.. but the requires you to rince out your mouth afterwards.. you can also take Ibprofan or tylonal.

Um after the first four weeks try hot sea salt soak.
Now try and avoid Bread products beacuse it irrtates your piecings, try and eat healty for at least a month.  No touching your ring with your finger, unless its clean, you can play with it with your tounge but not to often.

To clean the outside part of your lip is easy, useing a q-tip or perhaps clean ass-whipe rub it on the surface of the hole aswell as the ring , move the ring back and fouth slowly then rinse and pat dry. I forgot what you can use... Um use face wash for acme  or dial soap. id give you more info that thats enof expect no drinking for a month and always ALWAYS clean up after smoking (if you do.. I dont)

i just got my lip pierced yesterday and the only thing that was bad was waiting in the parlor to do it. getting it done didn't really hurt at all. it's a bit swollen, but not really bad, and i like the way it looks, though it's a bit akward to drink out of a cup. hope i don't have a job where i need to take it out, but i wonder if it will heal?  cleaning it is a bit time consuming but has been beneficial.

I thought the idea of getting a lip piercing was to be individual, but judging by the number of people on here i guess its not so much. Le sigh.
Anyway, here's my question. I went to my local piercers the other day and asked about getting a lip ring and he said that i would have to get a stud (post?) first as it wouldn't heal properly otherwise. Is that true, or is this guy just trying to con me into buying more stuff for my lip?
Also, as i have a job would i be able to change it for a transparent one in the first week or better yet leave it out for a few (roughly four) hours at a time?
Advice would be appreciated.

i pierced my own lip twice but the first time i wasn't really prepared with the correct after care and ring so i took it out... i wouldn't suggest piercing it yourself unless you know what you are doing because i have pierced many of the holes ears and so on just get it done... my mom wouldn't let me get mine which is why i took the liberty to do it myself... i think after a wile she will prob take me to get it done because she claims that mine looks stupid.. except it looks normal she just doesn't like it - anyway just go get it done and it doesn't hurt when you do it yourself but I'm kinda immune to pain so if you wanna find out if it hurts go for it but its not the smart thing to do

Most of you kids are just ignorant and naive. You probably smoke pot or cigarettes, label anyone who wears a lot of black and buys a majority of their wardrobe from hot topic, "gothic", and just want this lip piercing (if you're male or female:) to rebel from your parents, (male:) to look cool and 'fit in' because it's the 'new cool thing', or (if you're female:) because Tom Delonge from Blink 182 has it, and OMG!!1!!! he's so hot, and because you think Blink 182 is 'punk'.

Well let me tell you little kids something, you shouldn't want your lip pierced for any of those previous reasons because then you would be conforming to America, and that is just exactly what they want. You are conforming to this sort of, 'individuality' scheme, which is an obvious oxymoron. First of all, you should want your piercing because you are in love with it, and you want it for yourself, not to prove anything, impress (or infuriate) someone, ot just to 'look cool'.

Many of you are what, 12-15? You are mere pubescent little teenyboppers in middle school or freshmen in high school. You have not yet hit reality, and learned and experienced enough to remotely understand what you are reading right now. (no offense) Your new lip piercing is going to change your usual environment, from your friends, teachers, peers and family's opinions, to the chances of you acquiring a job someday.

I am currently 17, and I will be 18 on June 14th, 2005. My grandma does not approve of my decision to puncture my lips, but that is not for her to decide. Therefore I have to wait until then to get my piercing. Although sometimes home piercings can be highly successful, I would never trust myself in such a situation.

I have been researching lip piercings and care for over a year now, as of Halloween 2004 when I first fell in love with lip piercings on myself. My costume that year was inspired by the song, "Punk Rock Princess", from a band called Something Corporate. They were my favorite band at the time, so I dressed up as a 'punk rock princess'. I put on a little hoop earring on my lip, after removing the metal post, and wore it all night at a party. Everytime I would pass a mirror or be in the bathroom, I would stare, intoxicated by this piece of metal embracing my mouth. It grew on me, hour by hour, and I decided that I loved the way I look with one. I find lip rings attractive yes, but my reason behind my choice for the piercing is not because some hot guy in a band has one as well. That is so lame.

Although I know enough now, and have a friend who is a certified body piercer artist and could have personal access to all the pro equipment to do it myself, or have a friend do it, I still restrain. I want to get it done right, and with confident spirit. After June 14th, I'll come back here and let you know how it went.

Be smart kids. Don't fall victim to America, or yourself.

PS: learn to spell you dumbasses. And to the commonly asked questions; yes it will hurt, but everyone has a differentiating level of pain tolerance, so don't ask how much. There's probably no way to make your parents sign or say okay. Or make them like it when you do it yourself or have someone else do it. Just wait until you're 18. You'll love it more, and appreciate it more, and therefore probably care for it more maturely. And the satisfaction will be like none other. Like sex. Goodnight.

Piercings generally hurt, yes, but to varying degrees. Stop moaning over whether it hurts or not. Of course it will! It's a needle through the skin! But the thing is, it only lasts for about 1 second, IF THAT. I'm gonna get my lip pierced near my 17th, while the right ear's getting 2 in it. I don't care about the pain, only the after care. That's the main concern you should all have. =D

Hey
Im 13, and i had my labret pierced yesterday, it did not hurt at all. And i was really pleased with it.
It did not swell up, nor did it bleed.
But, i have a question for people who have had there labret pierced already aswell.
Just after you'd had it done, where the inside of the bar lays on your lip..did you get like a circle shape kind of dent, where the bar rests on your lip?
Im really paranoid, and keep thinkin i may get some sort of infection, i clean it when i need to, and i have a little scar tissue on the outside at the minute, but thats ok, im just worried about the little circle shape inside my mouth, is this normal?

Please write back. Thanks

i got my lip pierced a few weeks ago and the guy told me that regardless of what anyone says, antibacterial soaps and regular mouthwashes are the absolute WORST things for a new lip piercing. he said that (believe it or not) a shotglass filled with warm water mixed with a tiny bit of salt is the best thing for it. you just kinda tilt the glass to your lip and let it soak in it for about a minute or two. i did that twice a day for the first week and it healed really well. so yep, thats the advice i took and it seemed to work really well. good luck guys!

i peiced my laberet (middle lower lip)by mylsed, with a poppey pin.

i kept the actually pin in it for about a week with it bent over so it stayed in, then i bought a bar whictch was fatter then the pin so i had to squeeze it through and it didn't swell up, just went red and has been lookin better, i've had the bar in for about 4 weeks now and its fine. i used germoline and tcp and other antiseptics to cleanse it.

oh and don't blow smoke to much through it, resin builds up in it lol

it didn't get a tiny bit infected, im prob just lucky i guess but it saved me 20 quid

Hey well i offically got my lip pierced, but I did it myself. I hardly ever go to the cities close to me cuz i work alot. So i did it about 2 days ago. It didn't hurt, which was good cuz i hate pain, i was even scared to get my nose done. lol The think that sucks is i didnt get a proper stud, so now i'musing one for my ears (that i disinfected). Right now, my lip is swollen, and i have a blister from the backing. Is it normal for my lip to be swollen?? I'm only 15. lol

Hey everyone, I'm considering getting my lip pierced, but I woke at a wicked high class restaurant and would need to take it out for work. I only work about 5 hours at a time, at most 6. I was wondering how long it takes to heal, and how long can I leave it out for. I can only take about a week off from work, so after a week could I leave it out for 5 hours and be okay to put it back in after work? thanks!

Okay, i read all these, and by the looks of it, no one has posted anything for a long time. So i just want to put in here what EVERYONE here has been asking about lip piercings.
Does it hurt? - Of course, I have had my lip pierced for god knows how long, but i remember thinking it was gonna hurt so much, and then i had it done, and the clamp hurt more then the piercing.
The aftercare - DONT TOUCH IT WITH YOUR HANDS. Not for a while anyways. You hand is loaded with dirt grease and bacteria, and when you get that on your piercing and your piercing rotates back into your lip which is healing, you wil get an infection. Yes, you will need to take care of it. For at LEAST the first month and a half. You have to brush your teeth at least 3 times a day, to keep as much bacteria out of your mouth as possible, you will get "crusties" as they're called for the first month or so, thats just it healing itself. My piercer told me to use sea salt, and dilute it in distilled or bottled water, and he said i could use q-tips. Wash your mouth out with the sea salt solution, and spit it out. Do that around 3 times a day.
If you have anymore questions, or want to see some pictures of the "locations" of lip piercings, i have pictures of mine, and friends piercings. All different spots, email me at thenextmullen@hotmail.com
Scott.

i pierce my cartlige in the middle myself and i now have a tung bar there! it looks totally cool! but it hurt and they used the same type of needle (to streach the cartlige) you would use for your lip, it hurt a teeny bit but all peircings do eh!
my parents dont care what i do, cos i done all of this without askin them and im only 15 but im 16 soon! so i guess im a lucky 1.
good luck to all you who want it done, i cant wait 4 mine! :)

ok i did my lip almost two weeks ago.I'm fifteen and it didn't hurt at all. just be sure to keep it clean. every time you eat when you wake up and before you go to sleep. i did it myself with a sewing needle. (yes i sterilized it) and gauged it out to a 16 it didn't hurt at all. AT ALL. but that could be just me... if you are planning on doing it yourself: make sure everything is clean... and i'd recommend putting like a chunk of apple or potato between your lip and your gums to make sure you don't poke at them... it's slightly painful... ok so yeah. good luck to all of ya'll and just talk to your parents about it first... seriously. they could be cooler than you think. and if they still say no they prolly have their reasons... don't be afraid to ask them what they are.

peace

um well Ive read most of these and Ive had my lip pierced about a year now but its always been sorta a problem putting the ball in i have my friend do it for me ..shes got three lip piercings. i think it would be better to do a piercing in a professional shop obviously because i did my nose on my own and it got badly infected. the only way i can say to pursuade your parents is to remind them that a piercing is not permanent you can always take it out if necessary but i think its rather idiotic to hide a lip piercing from your parent or parents. the first week or so your lips will be really chapped and it will be hard to eat but it will pass. as for the pain its like i read it depends on the person getting pierce i happen to have a high pain tolerance so for me it was like a little sting and it was over. you must remember to clean your lip ring with mouthwash and brushing your teeth . i did it every time i ate. as for now thats all the advice i can think of.

I really would not advice doing it yourself, not that it will stop you.

Whichever way you choose to do it, aftercare really is important. Use a cotton bud and a sea salt water mixture and gently clean around the bar/ring. These mixtures can be bought in bottles in pharmacies or drug-stores. A normal ear piercing cleaner is just as effective. It may sting a little, take this as a good sign.Clean around it in the morning, when you've eaten, At night or if you think you can feel it scabbing.Most cannot feel this, But i advice you clean it if so.After around 2 months the piercing area should,(depending on the person) be a whole lot softer and easy to touch.
This is basic, but do NOT play with the piercing or area around it with your hands. This WILL cause infection, unless your hands are clean.
On the age matter, I would advice waiting over rushing into it at a young age, My parents never gave me consent for it and i felt awful for a very long time. To avoid this, See their point of view and realize a piercing should not be a fashion statement or accessory. It will be a part of you even when its gone.
Thank you.

people are always freaking out about piercing themselves because of the risk of infection. if you buy a sterilized piercing needle and clean the area with alcohol (before insertion of the needle) there's not much to worry about. i pierced my lip last night. it's kind of odd doing it yourself, because the skin is kind of tough, plus i have a big lower lip. it didn't hurt that much going in, but i'm sure if you go to a professional piercer it won't hurt as much. because they know what certain nerves to miss when piercing, that culd cause the person alot of pain. afterwards it doesn't hurt, it's just a little tender (atleast it is for me) but i do advise anyone who pierces themselves DO NOT use safety pins. use a STERILIZED needle. i reccomend using this aftercare product: H2Ocean it's always sterile and you can just spray it on. no need for q-tips or anything. you can also use it on the inside of your mouth, it won't hurt you it's just purified salt water.

nekky, how'd you get your lip pierced without your parents approval? did you do it yourself, or professionally? if so, can i have the name of the place?? i recently pierced my lip myself and my mom freaked and made me take it out, going on about infection and such.. if infection was such an issue for her, getting it done professionally should sway her, i think. anyway, please respond with an email to pessimisticgloom@aol.com

Well recently I peirced my own lip, and It came out pretty good.

All you need to do is, after every meal Gargle with mouthwash for 10-20 seconds.

Clean it whenever you feel it should be cleaned with an ear swab.

also, when you take a shower, use a mild soap on it.

hope that helps, cus i works for me.

Hi-ya.I'm 14 and I periced my lip last night... well tried.. i did ever thing right but i didn't keep it straight.. it kinda went in and up... so i took it out and blood came rushing out... so i panicked and cleaned up the bathroom because my mom didn't know i did it... after i was done cleaning up, i put a ice cube in my mouth and sat down.. as soon as it stopped bleeding i got up and looked at it... but then blacked out and my hearing and my vision went and i was shaking alot....after about 10 or 15 mins i cleaned it again then told my friend who started freaking out. so today my lip is black, purple,and red, and my friend says i hit vains and nicked a nerve....

I got my lip pierced yesterday, It didn't hurt at all. There was a slight pinch and it was done. I got a 14 gauge instead of the regular 16 rings...It still doesn't hurt but it's so swollen. Sucking on ice isn't helping either. It's swelled almost around the entire ring. Anyway, I'm pretty glad I got it done, I just have to deal with looking like a chimp for now.

DON"T~~ Do it your self!!!!!!! PIERCING IT YOURSELF IF YOU HIT A NERVE YOU COULD NOT BE ABLE TO TASTE ANYMORE! I did mine myself but i never lost my taste. anyway you clean it after all the things you eat. use a nice mouth wash. it is not hard to stop infection if your careful you will have a 5% chance of getting a small infection.

Hey, I'm thirteen and I want to get my lip done like Sonny Moore from FFTL. Now, he's got two piercings. They're more in the middleish. I know my parents wont allow me to, but I'm willing to wait until I'm 'of age' I was just wondering if the parlor would do the two at the same time. And also, would it hurt more than to get them done separately. (I've got a high tolerance to pain) (Sonny Pic: http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://fftl.net/gallery/albums/userpics/10088/thumb_100_2769.JPG&imgrefurl=http://fftl.net/gallery/thumbnails.php%3Falbum%3Dlastcom%26cat%3D0&h=91&w=100&sz=10&tbnid=QaBnYToONkkJ:&tbnh=70&tbnw=77&hl=en&start=16&prev=/images%3Fq%3DFFTL%2BSonny%26svnum%3D10%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official_s%26sa%3DG ) Just to give you guys an idea.

Well, the best advice i could give you is just to keep it clean with saline solution. you can make this your self, salt and water... its all i did! I have my lower left lip pierced and i did it myself... It was really easy, no infections. If you do it yourself just keep it clean!!! the right mouthwash, soap e.t.c needs to be used. But if you do it yourself, get the proper tools to do it with!!! I have to have mine re-streched to about 1.6 mils again because i left it out and the previous jewellery will not go in!! duhhh lol

hey, i had my clit pierced about a year ago, it was really painful having it done it felt tingly in a way so bad i couldn't barely move for 1hr,like pins and needles but worse.however after that initial suffering it was completely painless. i was told it hurt extra because i was 1 day from getting my period. i want to get my tragus done a regular one(the bit of cartilage in the ear ajoined to the head) i have a feeling this will hurt more cos its solid cartilage and not just a bit of thin flesh but then again clits are meant to be sensitive! can anyone give me a comparison of pain? also how long does it take to heal and how long before you can take it out, change the jewelry? is it more expensive then getting the clit done-using the cheapest jewelry each time? thanks Simonea

Hey everyone. I just got my lip pierced today. It hurt a bit while it was being done and the numbing sensation feels AWK-WEIRD!! But...it's pretty cool. Uhh, it still kinda feels funny and I'm a little worried about infection but so far so good I guess.

I got my lip pierced 6 hours ago.  It was not nearly as bad as I thought. And I am a wuss when it comes to pain. I even asked my piercer to make sure the door was shut so the others wouldnt see me cry.  Surprise I did not cry.. However i did flinch when i heard it go through. i wont say it wont hurt because each person is different (as a nurse i understand this) but its not all its cracked up to be.

hi, i have had my top lip pierced for about 2 and a half months. It did hurt when it went through but in a weird way! It hardly bled at all, but it made me feel ever so dizzy and i nearly fainted. When you have it done, make sure you have a bottle of water close by to wash yourself down with. However, I knocked it out by accident, and had to repierce it myself! Total nightmare! In terms of aftercare, wash your mouth out with a mouthwash, or, even better, salt water (put a teaspoon of salt into a glass of water and mix it round). Also, if it really really hurts, ice cubes are an amazing way to take swelling down and ease the pain. I'm a tad worried about mine however, because it sometimes leaks a yellow pus. I'm hoping this will subside with time so I'll update you soon.

oer!! i've been thinking about getting my tongue or lip pierced for the past few months but besides the fact that I never have enough money, I am not allowed to do it! Should I just go right ahead and do it without permission or wait a couple of years for when I'm old enough? And what are the risks?? I'm leaning more on the lip idea (it's so hot on guys who can resist?) But is that going to affect my eating/talking/kissing? And anyone know a good place to go to?

You know, I've got something to say to that dude who claimed you have the rest of your life to pierce yourself. You don't really. It's something you have to get now or never. Jobs aren't gonna let you have a piercing, unless you want a specific job that does and not everybody does or can do that. So I say we have to hurry.

Hey, I just got my lip pierced about two weeks ago. It was nothing. It was my very first piercing, and I was scared as hell.  It turned out to be nothing more than a pinch. I didn't even believe the guy had put the needle through.  Small tip though, wait a while before getting rough with anyone, it doesn't feel good when it gets bit and it will swell up quite a  bit.

hi I'm soph n in 15.i pierced the left side of my lip myself on Wednesday. i used a sewing needle (non sterilized stupid i know!)and i left it in for a while then tried to get the bar in but it wouldn't go in coz i pierced with a needle under a mm wide and the bar was 1.2mm so i put a thick safety pin in it and went to the piercer the next day who stretched it a little and put the bar in for free. non of which hurt at all! I'm just cleaning it 3 times a day with a salt water solution and it is doing fine! I'm doing my ears for a 3rd time in a min.

Hey, I'm 15 and I really want to get my lip pierced, on the right-hand side. I realise I cant have it in school so i'm willing to wait until the end of this year, after my exams. The only problem is my parents are totally against it. They didn't let my sister get her lip pierced until she was 18 and it seems the same for me. Has anyone got any good information about lip piercings and risks etc that I can use to try to change their minds? It's worth a try...

Everyone who has been asking about lip piercing, i can help.

im 14 and i'vehad my lip pierced for a year and some odd months. and i also grew up with piercings. and i'vedone all 16 piercings i have. IM sorta what you would call a "Professional street piercer".

Anyway. To answer the Pain question to people. Pain is an oppinion. but a lip piercing does hurt less then some piercings because your just piercing threw fatty tissue, like lobes. and for god sakes, your putting a damn needle threw your lip, of course that's ganna hurt some. but you want it pierced don't chyea?  then stop being whimps. pain isn't permanent. if you want it so bad you should actually want to go threw the pain. if your to whimpy, then i guess you really don't want said piercing. and if you really need to take it out, i would sugest a retainer. they are clear, plastic and rather small. and i perfer a clear O ring around the top. then it's really invisible. you can usualy pick one up from a piercing store or Hot topic.

After care. Simple. Listerien after every time you eat. and wash  the outside of the hole with Dial anti-bacterial soap with new toothbrush. "Crusties" form on the outside and you don't wanna move the crusties into the hole cuz it can ruin the healing proccess. so clean the outside as much as you can. even wetting it works. and i'ddeffinatly get a captive hoop for the healing process. but that's if your ganna clean the crusties. but if you don't like to clean, get a labret barbell and clean it like once a day. but i still like the captive hoops better. but if you need to hide it, or worry about ripping threw the hole with a crusty then go for the barbell. healing takes about 2 weeks - 2 months. You can heal fast by taking a Zink Tablet with every meal.

i hope i'vehelped a few. Any questions IM me @ DeathBlackRose79. That's my AIM or email me at lil_girl_on_wings_of_fire@yahoo.com

You will need to buy something like Glyoxide or a generic brand of it.. (oral aseptic) use that while you brush your teeth. Also you can get either Tech 2000 or a non-alcoholic mouth wash to use after you eat or drinking anything besides water.. I had just got my lip pierced yesterday.. but i had researched things about it. Also i would not do it yourself. It will probably increase the risk or infection or inflammatory

I just had my lower lip pierced so for all those with questions I am going to put some honest info.

1) did it hurt? well they use a needle what do you think? but pain is minimal and only lasts as long as the needle is piercing which is a matter of seconds.

A professional puts in a larger bar/ring to allow for swelling and if healing goes well after a week you go back to have a smaller bar/ring fitted.You should always go back after about a week for any piercing for a free check up anyway to make sure it is healing okay.

2) do they use local anesthetic spray? Yes one on the inside of the mouth and also on the outside.

3)Can you use alcohol mouthwash? Well if your not allergic or anything then it should not be a problem after all alcohol is a natural antiseptic and was used in surgery for years for that and as an anesthetic. My piercer is very professional and great at what he does so if he says its safe I trust him fully as he's done all my piercing and I've never had a problem with any of them.

4)Can you take them out for periods of time? Yes, in fact my piercer had his out today (he forgot to put it back in hehe) although common sense should prevail and you should wait until the lip piercing has healed properly which can take a few weeks to a few months and should not be left out for really long periods because the hole will start to heal especially on the inside of the lip.

5) will it become infected/what are the risks? well any risk of infection is minimal so long as proper after care is carried out and the piercing is done by a professional in sterile circumstances. Clean the outside 2 times a day using warm soapy water or an antiseptic spray such as savlon using a good quality Q-tip. On the inside use a mouthwash on a morning on a night and after main meals.The mouths natural enzymes will also help to keep the inside clean.

The biggest tip is to use a professional piercer, to find a really good one always ask others who have had piercing for recommendations. Do your homework, always check on what the piercing entails including proper aftercare. A professional piercer will always make a point of showing that everything is sterile and in sealed packs and will destroy the needle in front of you so that it cant be used again. You will need to sign a disclosure form to say you are of legal age..NO PROFESSIONAL PIERCER would ever pierce anyone who is or appears to be underage unless with parental consent. If you use one that does or because they seem cheaper then you are risking your own health. If you are younger it is always recommended you wait until legal age, for one thing your body is still changing it is often better to wait until that is complete. If you are intent on having it done don't do it behind your parents back they say no with good reason, why not suggest that they come along to see the premises of the piercing studio so they know its safe but if they still say no then I would say listen to them and wait till legal age after all, all good things come to those who wait and if your serious about the piercing then you wont mind waiting.

As for kissing (and other things) I hear its pretty enjoyable hehe and shouldn't be a problem with the piercing.

I hope this helps answer some of your questions guys and gals :-)

So far I'm liking my lip piercing, but my fellas in for a shock as he doesn't know I've had it done as he's away with work for the next 3 1/2 weeks hehe cant wait to see his face.

I have piercing and tattoos. The most painful piercing I have had and my piercer says brings tears to the eyes when done) was my nose and that was done by a friend (well I was 14 at the time and didn't know better).

I have had tongue, eyebrow, nose, belly button and now lip done.

For the person who asked about tongue it doesn't hurt, depending on the person it can bleed a little (mine did) its weird to get used to at first especially when eating but you get used to that.

Say you had a lip piercing in for a long time (let's say..10 years as an example) and then you wanted to take it out forever. Would it still close over even if you've had it for that many years or would it leave a hole forever? The only reason my mom won't let me get a lip piercing is because she says it still leaves a hole after many, many years of having it o_O.
If I have proof that it won't leave a hole, then I can probably get it done. :)

hey, im 16 n got my tounge pierced a fair while ago. for those who are planning on getting it done it is painless. i am being totaly honest. my peircer told me herself that the tounge piercing is one of the most painless. it will feel awkward as the needle goes throught n there will b blood but dont worry. just make sure u have a big meal the day u get it cause u might find it difficult to eat during the swelling. i wasnt able to eat for 3 days, but i found chewing gum helped. i used listerine to clean, i watered it down slightly. and i also used a salt wash, (sea salt rocks, deluted in warm water) do this n u should be fine!

Yout really shouldn't pierce your lip yourself. It's very dangerous and could potentially lead to a life-threatening infection. If you mess it up, then you are screwed because you might get an ugly scar. I have had my lip pierced 4 times, and I've always gotten it done professionally. It barely hurt at all, and I have an extrememly low pain tolerance. I have never gotten an infection or experienced any problems. Just save the $40 or whatever it is to get your lip pierced, it's totally worth it

Hey yall I'm new here, but anyways I pierced my own lip. NO PAIN what so ever. It's awsome. My bro calls me a freak. Does a lip and eyebrow piercing make you a freak. Yes I also have my eyebrow pierced; I also did it! My family don't like it at all. What can I do to make them except it and quit calling me name.  PLZ resond.  Thanx.  angelface22490@yahoo.com

Hi all. ^^
I got my lip done about 5 weeks ago, so to answer some people's questions and ask one of my own, (lol)......
It didn't hurt for me at all (lower lip right hand side). There were no fancy procedures or even a clamp - the guy just cleaned it, marked the dot, told me to open my mouth and then stuck the needle through. There was just a tiny... sensation is the best way I can describe it. And I've not got a particularly high pain tolerance.

I was told no kissing for 2 weeks and not to take it out for at least 4 weeks. It didn't interfere with my eating and drinking at all - I was just a little careful not to move the ring around too much. For 10 - 14 days it was a little sensitive on the inside. I could feel it pull if I grinned too broadly! But all in all - absolutely fine. And that was the first piercing I've ever had, not even had ears done.

For aftercare I just used a Listerine mouthwash twice a day and rinsed the outside in clean water. It remained as clean as a whistle, didn't swell up at all and caused me no problems (even when I accidentally caught it while I was sleeping, which did hurt a little!)

Luckily my work place is cool with it, and I'm 26 so I don't have to worry about parents ^^ (they like it anyways!)

Now for my question. It's about changing/taking out the ring. (It's a plain ring with a ball closure.) The other day (after the 4 weeks was up) I took off the closure with a view to changing it for a spiral ring, but couldn't get the ring off and was forced just to put the ball back on again. >< The gap wasn't wide enough to enable me to remove it. What to do? Do I just need to prise the ring wider open until it comes off, or is there something obvious I'm missing? Opening it doesn't hurt any, but it gets a bit sensitive if I mess around with it too long.

I'm getting my lip pierced on april 14th or 15th..not sure yet. at first my mom wouldn't let me do it b/c i'm only 13 and it would give a bad impression, so i just told her that i would do it on my bday and that everyone i care about knows that i don't do drugs, i don't drink, and i don't smoke..so everyone else can just kiss mine!!! that probably doesn't make any sense..sorry.. but i'm getting a stud on MY left side.. b/c i part my hair to the right, and i just thought it would look better.. but yeah. i finally got my mom to say yes...i was feeling really crappy and i was crying and my mom said that she would do anything to make me happy and i told her that i wanted to get my lip pierced as a bday present!!!

I really want to pierce my lip.
But I have a lack of cash at the time and my mom won't let me have it done.
So I figured I'd do it myself.
I've just been heard that if you pierce it in the wrong way you could hit a nerve which will result in you drooling uncontrollably.
That's not the outcome I want.
I really want to know where I should pierce my lip?
And if there is a right and wrong way to do it?

if any of u ppl are geting a tongue or lip ring done u shouldnt use a achoholic mouthwash use oral b non acohol mouthwash and for tongue piecings i recomend no dairy food, no kissing, no oral sex, no spicy food and no smoking for 2 weeks. if u use the mouthwash aswell there is practicly no chance at all of it getting infected . xox

Right, it's not the pain I'm worried about; I currently have 11 piercings.. 9 in my ears, nipple & navel. It's the fact that although I'm 16 & I'm legally allowed to get pierced, my parents don't want me to.. so, is there anyway i could disguise it so they don't see? & for school etc. because according to websites the healing time's a few months, so I'm guessing taking it out during that time is a no =]

I had peirced my lip myself when I was in 7th grade because I really wanted it.  I knew there was no way that my parents would allow it, but it was a spur of the moment decision.  So I tried peircing it with a safety pin, but it didnt work too great because the needle of it was long and flimsy.  Then I used a pushpin, but had to start on the inside of my mouth and push it through. It hut really bad, but I was determined to do it.  After the push pin went through I put the safety pin back in, and It hurt even worse after being done. I slept with the safety pin in and than wore a regular earring to school.  Whenever I was around any member of my family or anyone who would tell my family I would take it out.  My mom noticed the swelling and she thought it was a huge zit, she always tried popping it, and I couldnt just tell her "Its not a zit, its a peircing" so I let her try and pop it, even my aunt tried steralizing a needle and popping it.  I eventually told my aunt because she was cool and she wouldnt tell on me.  I decided that it was very stupid that I had to hide it from everyone, there didnt seem to be a point to having it, if whenever I was around family I had to take it out, or having the fear that someone in my family was going to somehow walk in on me while I had it and freak out.  So I wrote a note about it to my mom cause I was to scared to tell her to her face, and I was way more scared to have my dad know.  My mom wrote back to me on the note and told me to take it out.  So I did, and we never even talked about it and everything seemed fine.  Then, now in 9th grade, I decided I wanted it again, so I peirced it again, with a pushpin, and again out a normal earring in it.  I went to school the next morning, avoiding my mom, but knowing that I was going to have to tell them this time cause I really wanted to keep it.  After school I went right to my friends house to go to "When A Stranger Calls" its opening day.  At around 10 that night I had my mom come pick me up, very nervous since I was going to show it to her, when I got in the car my mom noticed and told me to get out of the car and that I wasnt welcome home with it in.  We talked about it, and she hated it, she thought it was ugly, but knowing that there was no way in hell that my dad wouldnt flip out on me she told me I could keep it if my dad said I could, but couldnt wear it around her.  Well I was gunna tell my dad when I got home, but in the car my mom made me take it out anyway, I couldnt tell my dad when I saw him, which It probably wouldve been a good time to because he was way drunk, and the only time he's ever nice is when he's drunk.  So the next day I went to my aunts and we went to a parade and a hotel.  I wore the lipring/labret that night hoping my dad would come and see it and not flip out since our family was there, but he never came.  The next day was the superbowl and as soon as I got home I was gunna go downstairs and show my dad, but I was way too scared I was shaking, so I went in my room, turned my light on and tried to sleep so that my dad would be able to see it when he came in to get me when my cousins came over.  He came to get me and I thought it was so weird cause he didnt say anything about it, and I was scared again because I didnt know if he didnt see it or if he just didnt care.  I came out and I saw and talked to my dad like 4 times when he Finally was like "Whats that? It better be glued on" And I told him it wasnt and asked him "Isnt it pretty?" He was just like "Not really, youre a WEIRDO!" I Knew my dad must have been way drunk.  So the next day my parents were talking about it and my mom didnt want  me to keep it, but my dad told her she could decide cause he couldnt care either way and I was just like "Whoah, my dad must have a hangover!" Well my mom just said she wouldnt put ANY money towards it and I wasnt aloud to wear it around her, but I do wear it around her, so we'll see. Right now I am wearing a nose stud, because the earrings back was taring my gums so badly, and they dont have any labret rings in this gauge.  When It heals I get to put in a 14 gauge flat back i think theyre called, that I bought.  Now I still need the mouthwash for it, which sucks cause I need to hurry and start using stuff to make it heal.... But I have 2 friends with their lipped peirced that can get me some, or my best friend whose getting her lip and eyebrow peirced with her sister this weekend. But Im obsessed with my peircing and I am glad I did it myself! Wow I wrote alot!

i just had my lip done today. Bottom lip, left side, yes of course, tom delonge style,and i found it did hurt, but definitly not as bad as i expected.
I got all worked up and i was reading all these stores and some people would say it hurt and some would say it didnt. But in my oppinion, i found it felt as if i bit my lip hard. But everybodie handles pain diffrently. I'm fourteen and i was allowed by my parents. My mom was acctually there with me, along with my two best friends, But they wern't allowed to come into the piercing room with me, which did not help calm my nerves. She put the clamp in my mouth down by my gums and folded my lip over, after she had marked where i wanted it, than she took the needle which was about the same size as a sewing needle and pushed it through the back of my lip. She pulled the needle through and than put the ring in,which was painless. Than she put the ball on and closed it with another clamp. It never bled at all, nor did i drool. Which was good.
At the moment, it's been about five hours since i've had it done, and it feels sort of numb, but i can move it. I just replaced my old toothbrush with a new one and brushed my teeth, and rinced with lysterine, which you should only do at the most five times daily or you can get a yeast infection in your mouth. Tonight before bed im going to dissolve some sea salts in water and soak my piercing. Tomorrow while im in the shower im going to lather it with body wash and turn the hoop around, and than im going to repeat the sea salt process, as reccomened by my piercer.
I hope this information helped, and i do reccomened getting your lip pierced if your parents allow it.

If you get it done, even if you take it out when your dad's around, or if you get a retainer, you can still see it! i had mine done for 2 months, had a retainer that was too big and it hurt to put in. I don't recommend getting it done when you know you'll have to hide it. You have to wait till it heals until you can replace it with a new piece of jewelry. If you don't let it heal, you're gonna get an infection or mess up the hole. I have a scar, and I only had it for a short period of time. So, yeah it hurts it looks cool on some people, but dont get it just to get it done. there is a lot of cleaning and maintaining it. and if you know someones gonna flip, dont do it!!
Thats my best advice
just wait till you know you can get it, for sure.
HOPE this helps!

I've had the bottom right side of my lip pierced for a little over 2 weeks. The actual piercing doesn't hurt unbearably, it's like a pinch. Though I will say, the first week having it is very painful. I had to resort to eating soft foods and drinking through a straw. If the piercer doesn't give you anything to clean it with, I suggest use ear piercing solution, which is what I have been using and has been healing well. Rotate the ring so the solution gets into the hole to help heal it. DO NOT use ointments like A and D Ointment or anything sticky/gooey as it will clog up the hole and wont let air get to it...it will breed bacteria and cause an infection. Make sure you rinse with mouth wash every time you eat something, in the morning when you wake up and before you go to bed. Avoid playing with it. And also, don't pick at the crusty stuff on your lip, that's part of the healing process. But do carefully remove any crust that might be on your lip RING with soap and water. If you absolutely must remove the ring for some reason, do not remove the ring by yourself during the healing process. Have your piercer do it..they have special tools to do that.

I really suggest that you DON'T pierce it yourself. By piercing in yourself the chances of ruining your lip, and getting an infection are very high. I have done many piercings myself too, and i've had my lip pierced as well, but with a lip piercing you should go get it professionally done especially if you don't want to risk ruining your face. Theres a chance of migration/rejection, also if you don't use the right size ring or the stud starts to get caught on your teeth, it could keloid.
Get it done by a pro.

I had my septum pierced like 3 weeks a go by a professional and it hurt so bad. I didnt look at the needle which probably helped =/ i really want to get my lip pierced. My septum is totally fine now. I think that people leave it too long thinking about it and building up all the worry. The pain only hurts for like 10 seconds anyway.

I am a total wimp and had watery eyes and everything. It's not like people havent seen people cry anyways =P i was sitting next to a man getting his neck tattooed and he was crying like a baby!

Just remember that if you get a piercing done professionally.. it wont hurt as bad.

Heylo, all. Things suck. It is my birthday on April 16th, and I will be 15. The thing I want more than anything is to have my bottom lip peirced (so that I can totally freak out my friend when I see her again :P plus, I like lip rings are totally hot) but my mum says "You'll never get a job with a great big thing hanging off your face!" What can I do to change her mind??? I'm a teenager - it's to be expected that I have peircings! I'll probably end up taking it out by the summer, but my mom doesn't want to hear anything more about it. (she got really mad and told me to be quiet and go away.) I am willing to go as far as to drug the brownies I will make tomorrow with Exlax, but perhaps I shouldn't be so drastic so soon.
  Anyways... What can I tell her to make her change her mind? (My dad, unfortunates on her side) Any help would be greatly appriciated.

PS: my parents will allow a belly-button ring, or another hole through my ear, (or possibly even a nose ring, if I fight hard enough) but my friends have already done all that and I kinda want to do something they haven't done yet.

My friend is going to do snakebites for me here in about 2 weeks. I'm a little nervous, because reading through all of these, I've noticed the majority of people who say "It didn't hurt!" got it done at a shop. The girl who will be doing my piercings has done lip piercings before, and I have full confidence in her, but there are some things I'd like to know from people who do have/had liprings. I would ask my friend, but she has never gotten her lip done.
1. I read something about a clamp. I realize it resricts blood flow so there will be less blood loss, but how could we subsitute this for something? What I mean is, what can I use to act as a clamp? Or, what can be done to decrease how much blood there will be.
2. Let me get this straight. After piercings, wash the inside of your mouth with a non-alcohol wash, such as Listerene or salt water, and on the outside use soap, but no Q-tips or anything that can become lodged in the hole.
3. I've also read that it swells a lot. Does it scab too? And also, for how long do these little injuries last?
4. What is the longest amount of time you can leave a lip piercing in after it's been done(and I mean almost directly after it's been done. I don't want to choke on liprings in my sleep) before the hole closes up to the point where you need to get it repierced to get it back in?
5. Is there much of a hazard to getting snakebites with braces? My friend Ciera has braces and snakebites, and has never complained, but I want to make sure it's not an individual thing.

I'm sorry about asking so many questions, but I'd rather know now and get answers from a few people than have my friend not know and cause permanent damage to my face. For the benefit of others, you can reply to my questions here, but it would be most appreciated (since I don't come here much, and most likely would forget the link) to email it to me. xupxinxarmsx@gmail.com. Much appreciated!

Okay, to everybody who's been wondering abour pain and infections of lip piercings - Take some advice from someone who's done it.

See, a lot of people at my school had DIY lip piercings because otherwise they couldn't pay, and their parents certainly would not take them. So all this lead up to me and my best friend piercing our lips. Other peoples' turned out fine, why couldn't ours? So we did what they told us to do: got sewing needles, and I took care of the sterilization.

Well, to properly sterilize a needle, my mother, being an oncology nurse, taught me to put the needle over a hot flame and wait until it becomes "white hot". When it reaches this stage, all the harmful bacteria will have been killed from the extreme heat. (CAUTION: Don't be dense, now. The heat will transfer throughout the needle. And it will burn. So be careful.) Also, if you have alcohol preps, those slightly wet little pads that doctors wipe your skin with before you get a shot, sterilize the needle with that after using the "white hot" tactic. Don't forget to cleanse your skin and disinfect it.

As for pain, well, I've found this much to be true between myself and most people I know: As the needle first pierces the skin layer, it will hurt. And getting it through the flesh, well, it doesn't really hurt at all, but it's kinda frustrating, since it's hard to push through. And it kinda hurts when it finally goes through the other side. Note that you should not replace the needle immediately with a ring, give it a little time. One or two hours. And when I first got mine, I remember I had a lisp. So if you're trying to keep it secretive, avoid words in which contain the letter "s". Lol. ^-^ That's all the advice I have for now, I'll be back frequently to answer more questions.

To those asking if it will hurt:

You are shoving a piece of metal through a body part. That should give you a hint to how much it will hurt.

I have 5 piercings, and I will not lie, it does hurt. Sure, you won't be writhing in pain, but there is a strong pinch. It's common sense.

Lip Piercings, if performed correctly, should be less painful than a cartilage piercing and about the same as a lobe piercing.
Some people bleed but most do not.

My lip hurt for the second that the needle was inserted but even that was just a scratch. After, it should not hurt unless played with (which you should avoid even though its fun)

The reason for use of a non-alcoholic mouthwash when cleaning the inside of an oral piercing is because alcohol prolongs healing time and although it kills bacteria, so do all antibacterial mouthwashes (obviously).
If all you can get hold of is alcohol based mouthwash, mix 1 part mouthwash with 2 parts clean water. For the outside saline solution is best (1/2 pint of hot but not boiling clean water with 1/4 teaspoon of pure sea salt [not rock salt]). Although some people say not to use cotton buds (Q-tips), it is absolutely fine.

Healing time depends on the person and how well the piercer performed it. Generally a bar heals faster than a ring because of less movement when eating etc. Diet affects healing time more than you might think, so if you dont already take supplements you could consider it.

People who would need to take a lip piercing out regularly for over an hour should be advised that the inside of your mouth heals very fast and re-inserting a ring or bar can be more painful than the initial piercing.

I hope this has answered as many questions as possible!

Si

A lot of people here have talked about doing their own piercings. Firstly, that is a lot harder and I think it's worth paying some money and getting it done properly with autoclaved (best form of sterilization) jewellery and professional hands! Also, my piercer told me it was important he checked the position in the lip so that he didn't pierce through any little glands or vessels that shouldn't be pierced. Piercers know about the flesh and the best way to pierce, so don't do it yourself- you don't know everything you need to know!

I have had my lip pierced for a little over a month now and I absolutely love it.  It took me a while to persuade my mom to let me get it done, but now that it's all over she likes it too.  I am the biggest chicken in the world though and the night I went to get it done I was scared to death, I don't like needles.  Not to mention the fact that I have probably the lowest tolerance for pain ever.  I made my friend come with me because shes been there before and she was like my moral support and I was like shaking and flipping out and stuff when they told me that I could go into the back room and get it done.  So I walk in and there was this really big leather chair in the middle of a room with tons of mirrors, which made it worse.  But I sat down and the girl came in and she was like tell me where you want it and I showed her (on the right side) and she drew the dot and then told me to close my eyes, so I did and she instructed me to inhale and exhale and it was done, that was it, I was shocked because it didn't hurt at all!  I honestly did not feel anything.  She told me that she was going to pull out the needle and stick the ring in and that didn't hurt at all either.  It was an exhilarating experience and though I never want to go through it again I AM glad that I got it done.  It was a little sore for the rest of the night but in the morning it was pretty normal feeling despite the swelling which was pretty minimal.  I'm very pleased with it and I got many compliments on it.

Anyone else had this expirence and know what to do? I've been cleaning it everyday and I see no reason why it would be infected so badly.

I got my lip pierced today. It hurts when the needle goes through but not too much. The stuff they used to help clean the area was about 70% alcohol so if its a skin allergy then id say check with them first. Mine didnt bleed at all and the person who did it was good at talkin an makin me feel ok about it, i wasnt really scared or anythin but i would assure people who are thata they are good at makin you feel better. First piercing too.

I just wanted to say I got my nose pierced recently & the dude got my lip when the needle went through my nostril. If a lip piercing feels anything like that I say screw it! I've always wanted that done too but Im surely reconsidering it now!

I just pierced mine myself. Its not even very swollen or red. I use peroxide...like swirl it around in your mouth and spit it out.

just make sure after you eat you have mouthwash or peroxide...then it'll get pretty infected. Like a tongue ring really.

i just got my lip pierced a day ago and it didnt hurt AT ALL if ur thinking of doing it go for it! mine looks rad. for aftercare all u need is see salt mixed with water and some saline solution (the stuff u use to clean contact lenses) the stuff in the presurized can is better. with the saline solution just rinse the peircing every day and rinse your mouth with sea salt and water mixed together to keep the new peircing clean. TRUST ME i got this info from my peircer. any other questions just ask your peircer.

Hey so im planning on piercing my bottom lip on the right side. I cant have the ring in at my new job which i start in a week so i would have to wear a clear one there since i obviously shouldnt take it out and leave it out a week after getting it done. i was told that you can leave a clear barbell in for about 8 hours after a week or so as long as you keep it clean and take care of it which is about how long i would need to wear it. is this a trueism?

I had my lip pierced a few months ago (the same place as Davey Havok - and he saw it!!) sorry... anyway it was swollen for a few days then was fine, then I got some pus, then it randomly swelled up (possibly coz I got a ring put in too early...) it's fine now though (I hope!).

Anyway, I was wondering... my ring goes towards the side of my mouth. how do i make it face inwards? do I get a smaller ring? also, I think the piercing may have shifted upwards... does anyone know if theirs was pierced slightly upwards so when your mouth is at rest, you can see the inside of the ring? or is mine weird?! cheers

I got my lip pierced  bout 3 years ago, and i never really bothered to clean it that well, and it's be fine. but i guess i was just lucky. My mate got his lip pierced(by a pro), and it went septic, and he had to let it heal over. When u get your piercings done you get told all about the after care, and they tell you all you need to know. Unles you do it yourself, and i could ramble for ages but i cant be bothered, so toodles people, and have fun poking rusty safety pins in your body, why they call then SAFEty pins i have no idea!

hey everyone. i'vebeen wanting to get my lip done for about 4 years now and i'mpretty sure it's the right thing to do. the only problem is (along with the pain, but i'mnot really too hyped up about that because everyone is different) i will be getting it done a few weeks (maybe 1 or 2) before i go on holiday. i was just wondering if i will still be able to go in the sea and pool and stuff. or if the piercing will still be swollen?

oh. and when i had my belly button done, i nearly fainted and i can believe that the lip piercing will be worse. is there anything i could do beforehand to reduce the risk of fainting? like eating sugary foods or something?

thankssss. x

i got my lip pierced today, lower lip, in the middle with a ring. it hurts a bit now. didnt hurt much at all when he put the needle in, just when he put the actual ring in, it hurt. i hope it doesnt become infected. i have found it a little difficult to eat, but i wore no socks to go to the piercing studio, and got a blister. the blister hurts more than the piercing. weird eh?

this was my first piercing, i intend to get more in the future.

here is a picture of it me / the piercing.
im 16, nearly 17, but don't look it.

I'm 14, soon to be 15, and I pierced my lip myself. I've wanted it since I was 10, literally, and I knew the only way I would be able to get it was if I did it myself. It was totally worth it. I used a safety pin & an earring with a sharp back. I gradually stuck the pin through my lip, starting with the outside. It seemed like there was an empty space between the outside layer and the inside layer. Once I got through the outside layer, I poked it through the inside layer. Even though it didn't hurt, that was the most painful part of it all. Then I put the earring in. I looked up on lip ring care and it hasn't gotten infected, yet. It swelled up a little, but that's gone down a bit. I hid it from my parents for two days, so that meant taking the ring out and putting it back in. I kept it out for about 45 minutes once, and the hole didn't even start to close up. But it probably wasn't the best idea.

I'm 15 and a guy, and I just got my lip pierced about a week ago. It didn't hurt at all really, the clamps they put on actually hurt more than the actual piercing. You feel it tear through your lip but it's not a painful feeling, its just like a pin going through sheets of paper. The mindset is what will hurt if you believe that it will hurt.

Iceman-  a new piercing would close up quite quickly so you probably wouldn't be able to do this. You could wait for it to heal and then wear a retainer as these are less noticeable than a coloured bar.

oh wow. it's actually quite amusing to read all of these comments.
I personally, do not think that piercings hurt at all. What so ever.
And i think that it could be that way for everyone if you have the right mindset.
You can think yourself out of pain.
It's true kids.. ah ha. I do it all the time.
:]
Ive had my labret pierced, my belly button, my ears 3 on one side, 4 on the other, my nose, and my lip.
I CURRENTLY.
Have my lip, ears, and nose pierced.

I will say one thing though.. don't EVER take out an infected piercing. That is quite possibley the dumbest thing ever.
Considering you've paid to have it done, and if you haven't, you've still gone through the effort of piercing it.
Don't take it out, it's gotta get worse to get better!

Oh boy, do i love piercings! :]

Ive had my lip Done for about 2 months now, Origainly i had a ring put in and then After  a month and a half switched to a Labrete.
And On the Inside Since Swictcing to the labrete There seem to be a little Bump On the inside And its Kinda Hard. Im just wondering if this is something i should be concerned about. I think the bump was caused by the labrete sucking Into my lip on the inside but Im not really sure.
Any Info?
Thanks.

I'm 13 I peirced my lip bymyself and it didn't hurt at all until like a day after and it got really red and sore infection persisted but I took good care of it i don't have a big labert but I'm wearing a eyebrow ring it's comfortable and it's big and clear it feels weird going in but I mean thats just cause i just got it and it needs time to heal so I kan gauge it to a 14 it's a 16 as the eyebrow ring says but I'm fine  hopefully it will heal and i won't have any problems I'm gonna go to skool to become a peircer and become part of the APP

erm i'mfourteen and i had my lip pierced a few days ago, it seems to be coming along well as ive been cleaning it regularly, on the outside with saltwater and i use listerine for the inside!

the place i got it done in was a bit dodgy although it was better than piercing it myself and it was quite hygenic so i found it OK.

it wasnt sore at all, my lip wasnt froze or anything, she just clamped it and the needle went through, just a pinch really!

so if your thinking of getting it done, go for it!
just make sure you look after it,
and the place it hygenic
Oh and dont forget parental consent
happy piercing haha ^_^

Hey you all... So I got my lip pierced a week ago and I just felt that I should anwser some of your questions! First, I have an extremely low tolerance for pain and getting my lip done didn't hurt at all. It felt pretty weird eating with it the first day but other than that everything else was fine. My swelling is gone and about the kissing question my boy and I made out a couple of hours after I got it done and it really didn't effect anything at all.. haha, I hope that makes you feel better!! So, overall so far I've had a really good experience getting mine done and if your thinking about doing it I would totally recommend it!

I got my lip pierced yesterday by a friend, but it was totally sanitary.  It didn't hurt much.  I only felt this weird feeling, like pain, but it's tolerable.  It didn't bleed, and didn't get swollen.  Afterwards, though, I felt like I was going to pass out, though.  So, I had to lie down and they gave me a lollipop and I took deep breaths.  The feeling was gone in one or two minutes.  For aftercare, I brush my teeth, and rinse with a mouthwash.  Then I clean the outside and around it with anitbacterial soap, and then dab some mouthwash on the hole with a Q-tip.

That's my experience.

hey guys, i got my lip done about 4 weeks ago and today it doesnt hurt. i do however have white tight skin around it but that only when the piercing has pressure eg pushing it out with my tounge. Id advise everyone go to a proffesional so much easier and quicker i try and clean mine at least once a day but some times i just forget its still ok had nothing more than the ocasional bit of pus coming out however i advise(something i should have done) anyone who smokes to clean it a lot more and to not be slack with it, if i had known i think mine would have healed a lot quicker. x

Hey.
For all those guys wanting to pierce their selfs. I pierce my friends. I use GAMMA STERALISED, equipment U should never use anything that is not steralised!
Firstly U need a gamma-steralised needle u can buy these on ebay and other internet site for really cheap prices.
U should always wear medical latex gloves. Expecially if ur piercing someone else! Draw a mark where u want the hole. And make sure it's correct.(U'llhave less of a chance of messing it up) then one u have cleaned ur skin with a Anti-Bacterial wipe. Insert the needle through the hole u have marked then as u withdraw the needle place a ring/stud into the hole. MAKE SURE THE STUD/RING IS STERALISED. U can buy steralising tablets/disinfectant ie:-detol and use hot water too.
Make sure u clean the piercing twice a day. A saline solution salt + water is best.
Don't remove the piercing for at least 4-6 weeks. Due to this being ur mouth area it will heal quickly because of the emzimes in ur spit.
Any mouth wash is fine to use aslong as it is an Anti-Bacterial one.
And Never use a needle more than once!

Hope this helps any of u
If u ever need advice Hit me up on

Good luck....

Okay. if your piercing shop doesn't provide you with good Aftercare info, Go somewhere else. My piercer explained the whole process, and the whole after care process to me, as i sat there in the chair it was really comfortable and he took away all of the anxiety rather easily, as for pain, it feels like you bit your lip rather hard, and then you feel a pulse for a bit on it.It kind of bleeds for a bit but not too much the needle is about 1 inch long. and if your piercer is good it's out and your Ring is in in under a minute. It doesn't hurt much but i was a bit anxious at first, one thing i recommend is not thinking about it and the thing that was the most panicky for me is when he put the needle in and grabbed the ring and i saw my lip with i one inch needle sticking through my lip. So if you're a bit queasy about needles don't look. when i left the piercing place, i bought a bottle of water and a bottle of scope, drink or pour out half the bottled water.and then top off with scope, this works fine to keep it moisturized and clean. buy some Dial liquid soap and place it on the inside and the out side of your lip and rub the ring back and forth, then rinse with Warm water, making sure you remove all of the soap. Aside from this do not touch your freaking piercing, just keep it moist and clean it twice a day, i used about three bottles of mouth wash in the first two weeks, just keeping it damp, it only hurts if you. Let it dry out, do not pick it wash it off. If that's not all of the info you need, well then ask your piercer.

Aftercare is simple salt water mornin and night and mouthwash after you eat big meals or again morning and night!also ive heard da qtip rumour b4 but ive neva had ne problems wit ne ov mi piercings!!! Also iceman i dnt fink its very wise to take a fresh piercing in and out, not only might this b painful but risk of infection will be higher, could u not get a clear retainer fing, im not sure how soon u cud change it, but its an option i spose.

I just got my lip pierced a few days ago. The pain was highly tolerable. I recommend just breathing in, and breathing out slowly. If you do it without moving alot, it won't affect the piercer. I barely felt it, it felt like a little pinch on your lip. I got the left side done. However! It gets infected pretty easily take care of it!

I recommend H2Ocean products. And glyoxide.
P.S. MINE'S INFECTED NOW, AND IM DOING FINE!

I got my lip pierced 2 days ago, and i can tell you that the pain i felt when i got it done (about as painful as clipping a clothes peg to your skin) was no where near as painful and annoying as it is now. i have wanted this done for 2 years and i finally got it done, but now i have to deal with work (i work in a food prep area), school, ballet and everything else. i thought i had given a lot of thought into getting pierced, but now that i have it, im not sure if i want it. So make sure it is absolutely what you want before you get it and weigh up the pro's and con's. = )

Punkypiratess - Never pierce something yourself. There are so many risks involved. Please, just go get it done professionally.

Iceman - No it would not be possible to take it out for that amount of time immediately. You may be able to take it out for short durations of time after you've had it for a while. If you're worried about people seeing it then use a retainer.

Murray! - Yes, a stick with a small amount of cotton on the end is called a Q-tip or a cotton bud. Don't use them to clean your piercing...

Punkypiratess,

don't pierce it yourself,

1.) it could get infected
2.) you probably don't have the right jewelry

and
3.) if you hit a nerve it will paralyze your lip, and if you hit a saliva gland you can get blisters all  over your lip,


just get it done professionally!

I've recently had my lip pierced and to those who are really worried about it, it's not really that bad and thats coming from me who hates needles.

Id also recommend as other have done above to seek a professional if your worried about infections and so on, this way your in better hands and can get alot of questions answered.

Id also look into what your getting pierced before you do it, i did the mistake of not doing so, so everytime something changes i get really worried about it.

And my question is, how do i know if my lips infected? I currently have a stud just to make the hole as the guy who did it recommended it incase it swelled fast, and it did.

But i currently have a black blood coloured blob totally covering the back of the stud, will this go away, or is it infected?

My lip also split and squirted a little blood which sucked alot.

Anyways yea, i just need to know what the blood coloured blob is and what are the signs of infections :)

When I was 14 I decided to pierce my lip by myself. My parents didn't approve but I still did it. If you would like to do it your self go ahead just make sure you know how. I searched for months on how to do it the right way. Took notes and all that stuff. Mine went very smooth. I didn't hit anything no blood and barely any pain.


Just make sure that you soak the needle in rubbing alcohol before you do it. Put the needle in fire (the whole thing) And back into the alcohol. And when you're ready to pierce it look up some professional pictures or how to'son where to put it. And when you finally put the ring in be sure that it's a LIP ring. Not an EAR ring. The ear ring backs will tear the inside of your lip. That's the dumbest thing anyone would do with a self piercings. they put an EAR ring in something but an ear. Specific rings are meant for specific places. E-mail me if you have any questions.

Hey, Im 13 years old and i have been wanting my lip peirced since i was 12. I was talking to my dad about letting me get it and he seemed pretty chill about it. My parents have been talking about it for a while. Plus i have my nose peirced that i got done in 7th grade. So i dont really see the problem with getting my lip done. But my only major concern is that if i were to get it done what is the best method of cleaning it and will it leave a scar. Im not to worried about that scar. its more important to me about taking care of it. so please let me know if u have any advice on cleaning. thanks!

Love much and always~ Lexy!

Pain:
personally it really didnt hurt for me it was quick and painless,just a little prick it felt funny in my mouth and was sore for about a week sea salt soaks are the best for healing and also a spray called h2Ocean. i have had it for about 5 weeks now and it is doing great.

it requires sea salt in a mixture of water. bactine will destroy the scar tissue, so just use sea salt in some water. MAKE SURE IT IS NOT TABLE SALT because it contain iodine:not good: :]

meeeep...i really want my lip pierced but as most say there rents won let them have it..well same here...
I'm petrified of needles and i have a low pain tolerance...i have my lobes pierced  and my cartilage it didn't hurt at all i actually started laughing...if anything it hurts more now i got that done about 6 months ago....i stretched my left ear lobe from 0.6 to 4 mm...that sorta gave me a high...wasnt really a pain hurt was almost like an owwwww but meeeep...it lasted for about 5 seconds...
i have a few issues with getting ma lip done...
school,
and sports...i play county netball( no comments)and i play at high levels...they accept no peircings...would there be any way of disguising it Cos lip retainers seem silly cos there almost exactly like ear stretchers because of the black rubber bands...surely there more noticeable than a lil silver stud...blacks way more striking....

i think that the best option is to get the see Thu studs which u can get off ebay really cheep...

i hope to get ma lip peirced by christmas...gives me an excuse not to eat Brussel sprouts *vomits*...

i think its really silly and stupid to get it done without Ur rents concent...and i also think its stupid to DIY coz the risks are really high...

i'm only 14 so yeah don't take what i say if u don't want advice...bet hey would u rather have a lip piercing that looks decent or an ob job spare of the moment think thats gunna scar u for life....
yeeeep if anyone has anything to say check out my myspace and leave me a message explaining who u r and what u have to say realy....
http://www.myspace.com/funeral_for_a_friend_rox

well thats all i really have to say...take care....and use ur brain and give it some thought...

I got my labret pierced 3 years ago.. it didn't hurt at all but I got over it in about a month.. I took it out and it closed up pretty much straight away although it did scab a little. There is no scar there now unless you look really carefully..
I also have a couple of tats that didn't hurt either.. but a couple of months ago I got my lip pierced (bottom right) and it hurt like hell. But the way I figure is it's worth it.. after a day it stops hurting and then you have this thing for as long as you like..
People who want to do piercings by yourself, I'd say don't be a tight-ass.. get them done by a pro cause it's your body and if you screw it up you have to live with it..
Aftercare - don't stress too much.. if you overdo it you'll just get it infected. Clean it with salt water (just dissolved kitchen salt is fine) when you wake up and before you go to bed. twist it a few times during the day but don't play with it too much.

You'll be fine.

Hello people. I believe I'm not the only one that has visited this web page during the past few months. So... I decided to post a message hoping other people may do the same so that the site stays alive. It's almost Christmas, a great excuse to ask your parents for a gift, and what's better than a piercing? Anyways... I'm hopefully getting my done in about a week and like every other person, I have panicked about the pain and procedure. I have confidence, and am decided to do it and (although it sounds EXTREMELY cliched), I don't want to look back. For more motivational stories, I'll tell you how my lip piercing went and will keep you informed okay? WISH ME LUCK!

Im 13 and I got my lip pierced November 7. It WAS NOT painless... But it wasnt painful. I didnt cry I was just really terrified. I sugest praying before your piercing it takes away some of the fear and maybe the pain. Yesterday I changed my lip ring for the first time from a stud to a hoop. It looks awesome. It hurt a little to change it but it was all good.

i've had my lip pierced for like a year now.
it didn't hurt.
yes i did it myself &&i like it that way.
but there are certain things that i would
not do myself. i also gauge my ears myself
when everyone else suggests that you should
goto your piercer &&have them do it for you.
&&i did my eyebrow myself too.
I know what im doing, i do have sterilized
different sizes of piercing needles &tapers &whatnot.


if you want to get your lip pierced,
go for it.
it does scar (from a previous lip piercing before the one i have now)but you cant see it only if you look at yourself real close in the mirror.
the only thing that sucked about getting your
lip pierced &&the only pain in the ass
was the swelling.

I just got my lip ring done 14 gauge ring in the middle and it didn't hurt at all.

I was kinda nervous but when I got there I was more anxious than nervous.

As to all the people that want to know if it hurts.....NOPE I have four earing's and two are on the cartilage and the cartilage  hurt wayyyyy more than my lip did.

So to everyone who wants one good luck and to everyone that has one kudos's.

Peace out.

alright.
1. personally, i wouldnt do my lip myself. i have both sides done.
one is fairly fresh, the other almost 3 years old.
any piercing has risks and you put yourself in danger of potential infections.
being uninformed and doing this yourself only increases those risks.
go pro.
2. pain factor. i found the first one to be almost entirely painfree. i think it was becuase i was syking myself up so much, expecting alot more. the second time hurt a little bit more. but only like a small pinch (i almost literally didnt feel the first one) i think i felt the pain of the second one becuase i was expecting no pain, so it sort of suprised me.
3. to all you 13,14,15 year old kids whos parents wont let them get it done, but you're dead set on it anyways:
wait. until your old enough that piercers will actually do it without parental consent. look at it this way, if in 2-5 years-ish (whatever the piercing age is. 16 where im from 18 other places) you still want the piercing, go for it. becuase you can. it also gives you time to think about if you REALLY want it or not.

but other than that. go hard. i love my snakebites.

I had my lip (lower left)and right eyebrow pirced 5 days ago. I am such a wuss!! I do not do well with any kind of pain. I was soooo scared! Honestly, the anticipation is the worst part. All I felt with the eyebrow was the girl pinching my skin, that's all. It happens so quickly. Maybe your body doesn't have enough time to send a pain signal to your brain, or something. She said, okay.. you're done. And I was like.. What? You did it??? The lip, on a scale from 1-10 is about a 3 1/2. If you've had a blood test, then you can handle a lip piercing. Honestly, a blood test hurts worse. Go to Youtube.com and search for lip piercing or whatever you're getting done. It's a huge help to see other ppl getting it done. I do have a question... The lip piercing is getting a little annoying. I keep bumping it and it's getting in the way. (no infection or any problems like that) just in the way. Do I need to go back to my piercer to have her take it out, or can I take it out myself? You can email me at kimmeister18@yahoo.com Thanks :-)

Im 16 and i have my tongue eyebrow lip n nose pierced, theyve been peirced for a couple years, and i regret probly about 2 out of 4 of em. all i have to say is that if you really wana get it done. you should think about your future. im sure youve probably heard this from ur parents, friends, etc. but just listen. i mean seroiusly. i wanted my lip pierced so bad when i was 14. so i did it myself. it didnt get infected. but it took longer to heal. and now that ive had it a couple years, and im trying to get a job, its like the hardest thing to do. Employers dont like it when their employees have peircings, mostly because older people arent used to "our" generation. but if i had a choice now, i would have never pierced it, cuz if i take it out, theres always guna be a scar, i mean dont get me wrong, i love piercings, but just think it over before you go sticking needles into yourself, and if you have a choice, get them all professionally done. they know what theyre doing.
