I am also planning on getting a labret done during this spring break.  I heard that it's not very painful, but you can't listen to other people because everyone has a different threshold for pain.  But I've heard from my friends who also have piercings that as long as you wash the area and use mouthwash (like you're SUPPOSED to, piercing or no piercing) you should be fine.

If you use that local anathestic stuff that the piercers use, it won't hurt a bit.  Just don't get it on your tongue or your tongue will go numb for the next half an hour. I had mine done yesterday and it feels bloody great

I got my labret pierced less then a week ago. It doesn't hurt now and it only hurt a little when he pierced it (not nearly as much as my tongue hurt). I would say go for it. It is well worth it.

I had my lip peirced 4 days ago and it doesn't even hurt anymore. I was worried that mine would hurt A LOT but if you imagine the worst pain possible then it won't hurt at all. Glad to be of service!
P.s. I'm 14 so you don't have to be 16 to get it done at Afflecks Palace in Manchester.

I am 19. I got my tongue pierced 2 years ago. I was so scared because everyone said it was going to hurt so bad. But when I did it didn't hurt. I thought it would hurt when the needle went through but it just felt like a little crunch and it was over. I went and got a big glass of ice. I sucked on the ice constantly and it never swelled up so there was no pain. I;m going to go get my labret pierced on Friday. I'm a little worried about how it will affect my gums and my teeth though because me tongue piercing has caused a little soreness and sometimes some swelling on the back side of my gums. But I'm gonna go for it anyway. Hey, you can always take it out.

heya it'd be inmpossible to cover ur mouth every time u see them, but you can buy clear retainers on the net but you've gotta wait a little while before you can put them in so if i were you i'd have a chat with your piercer... i'm getting mine done in the 10 week holiday after my GCSEs cause my school's really strict on facial piercings and will be using a clear retainer afterwards

getting your lip pierced is a good idea i havent seen anyone look bad with one pierced. ive gotten mine done befor and sports kinda forced me to take it out and it healed up. if you KNOW how to do it i mean really KNOW how to do it go for it yourself you can buy a pack of life 5 piercing needles but be carefull.i did mine myself and it looks GREAT. i saved myself like 40 bucks so im happy ( "dont worry , be happy") but professional is allways the best way to go if you want to talk about it I.M. or email me at tymannkta19@aol.com

i pierced my labret last week, had to take it out though because of my parents. whether it hurts or not completely depends on the person and how tolerant for pain you are. when i pierced my labret, it took me about 4 tries to get it right. and it bled like hell. hahah, oh well. it's sore cause iv'e got an ulcer right over it.. yeah, had to take it out and stuff... anyway, i'll do it again eventually. oh, and if you people are worried about "the pain", either forget it and get it done or never get a piercing done. i see so many people saying "i'll get it done ___" ... just do it or dont.

To everyone wondering about the pain involved with labret piercings: Sure it hurts...for about 1.5 seconds and then you're done (no more than getting a shot).  And to those wondering about hiding it - you can't hide something silver on your face.  However, a clear or flesh colored retainer hides it well (as long as you don't draw attention to it).  Another option for hiding it is to take the ball off the front and pull it back a little bit (this works well - I did it everyday for like 2 weeks).

gettin pierced is the easiest thing. im a total wuss when it comes to needles, but i had my labret pierced once, got that sore inside, not a pretty picture. if u take care of it like u should, then u'll be fine. and the tongue is also easy, "wink wink". after its completely healed, u can put a retainer in it, just be careful that it doesnt come out.

This is for the people asking about the amount of pain with the tongue piercing. I had mine done last year when I was 14 (not for the skanky reason people seem to think girls get it for). I'm pretty wussy when it comes to pain...and needles but getting my tongue pierced hardly hurt, and it was for a split second anyway. The worst part of it was the 4 days after getting it pierced, eating was ridiculously painful, so I pretty much lived off slurpees and ice-cubes. I was really tempted to take it out on the first and second day, but after the 4th day everything got better and i was glad I hadn't. The tongue piercing heals really fast so I changed my tongue stud 10 days later problem-free. Anyways, I hope that helps some people.

Hey.  In Canada you usually have to be 18 or older.  I have gotten a tattoo in almost every province and a peircing in B.C, Alberta, Sask, and Montreal.  Montreal is a little more leniant for age.  But everywhere else usually sticks to their policy.  Good luck trying to fake your age!!!

In answer to the question of "I mean could i take them out during the interview... how long do each of the piercing take to heal up before i have to re-insert them" you cant take it out before its fully healed...i took my earlobe piercing out for about 2 or 3 minutes before it had healed to clean it, and when i tried to put the stud back in it had already grown back enough that i had to pierce it again to get it through. So no...no you can't take you labret out for a job interview before it has healed.

I have 16 piercings, 2 tattoos and a high pain tolerance. ive done all my peircings myself except for two. I have my ears done 11 times, 4 holes stretched, my web (under my tongue) my belly button 3 times and then now, my lip. it doesnt hurt at all. the only reason i found this is because i was told not to clean it with hydrogen peroxide or polysporin (like all my other peircings) so im looking for what im suposed to clean it with (other then mouthwash)my friend sais plain soap, without perfumes or dyes. but im wondering about aloe vera? anyway. good luck with it.   pain is beauty.

I'm 14 and i got mine pierces about a month and a half ago.It doesnt hurt any more than the ears do i.m.o. .Just make sure you take care of it with Listerine or some other mouthwash.For the first week or so you might get little crusties around it.Also try saline water on it.And about the job interiew thing,after i left my lip ring out for an hour,it was hard to put my 14g BCR in.

Hey getting your labret pierced doesn't hurt at all.  I was really scared it would and after i got it done i threw up because i was so nervous, but it is very rare to throwup.  I've had mine done almost 3 weeks now and i'vnever had a problem with it.  Smiling doesn't hurt,it just feels a little wierd, not after a couple days anyway.  And when you eat at first it feels a little wierd but you get used to it.  Alot of times i don't even know it is there.  once you've had it for so long it doesn't feel right to take it out. It feels like your naked without it.  If you want it done, i think you should go for it, it looks pretty good on mostly anybody if you have the right one and not some kind of crazy ball or something in it.  Well, i think you should go for it. :)

I'm not allowed facial piercings at school its strict catholic but I just took the ball off and left the bar in which isn't that noticable although one teacher did make me take it out 4 a lesson...OUCH!! But I'm going to get a retainer!!

getting your tongue pierced does not hurt...well for me it didn't, the more you anticipate the pain the more scared you are going to be and then you going to think its not worth it! but if you want it done badly then go for it....you will feel good afterwards...see I'm getting my labret done today and I'm not trippin a bit...a lil pain never did any harm...im sure you have been in a lot more pain then having your lip or tongue pierced with a needle!!! but yeah like i said its not that bad!

i'vegot m libret, nipples, tounge, ears, and a prince albert... the libret peircing was very simple and didn't hurt at all. it does swell up a little bit but mostly just that day.. for all my peircings i use ONLY Sea Salt and water... nothing else!!! you can call the Blue boutique in Salt Lake City and they can help. if your going to get this peircing though, make sure you don't have to hide it for work, or if your a guy you can just grow a little hair right there, and that does pretty well at hiding it.

I have my labret pierced (only little over a week old) and when I did it I had a stud piece in.  The next day my lip was swollen (well I know the swelling is normal) but the back of the labret was pushing through the back of my lip a bit.  So I switched to a hoop and it still pushes through a little but not as much.  I clean it and what not.   What type of jewelry should I use for my piercing?  Should I wait longer and see what happens with the hoop?

and i know how that girl there feels about the no interviews thing. everyone gets the wrong inpression about people with piercings. its not fair, but oh well.

I guess i'll just have to wait to see what i choose. hope its a good choice!

I think you should go ahead and get it done. I actually just got my lebret done and plan to go back and get my lips done on boths sides! I honestly didnt feel anything when i got it done. i got mine done by a pro who had been trained and trust me that makes a difference. dont let your friend do it cus it WILL be screwed up!! :0 if you get it done professionally its so fast that you cant even feel it and its just a little sore afterwards. but overall i really didnt regret having it done! the piercer said i was totally psyching myself out about the whole thing cus i already have my ears stretched!! so my answer is YES!! GO RIGHT AHEAD!!

Okay, well, Labrets DO normaly have a high risk of infection, I mean c'mon its in the mouth. I did my own labret with a darning needle, I do not recomend doing this. It didnt hurt for me, but I have a high tolerence for stuff like that.

It might get red, thats healing. Clean it with sea sault, I didnt do this. I used rubbing achole and Mouth wash.

If your worryed about getting jobs and stuff. There ARE clear rings you can get, I did and you cant even tell its peirced. Dont take it out, you can scar your lip, and or it might not go back in.

Mine took me about 3 weeks to heal.

Get it done by a good professional. If your really young and your parents say no, listen to them. Or state that it will heal, looks good on every one, you can get a small gague ring. Clear rings.

Good luck to all.

im a profeional tattoo and body peircing artist.i have over 40 peircings,including the labret. people who say peircings dont hurt are lieing,of course it will hurt, its a sharp object tering your scin apart, there will be some pain. but also, it depends on how scweemish you are. if you tell ourself its going to hurt it will hurt worse, its always best to peice or tattoo when your calm,and to think good thoughts if your woried.   the labret is pretty much the same level of pain as your lower ear, but, as it is a part of your mouth,some infection in the first stages of healing is expected. IF YOU REALY REALY WANT IT, YOU WONT BE SORRY AFTER YOU GET IT. YOU SOULD DO IT.AND If you deside you dont want it later , you can always take the thing out.

I had my labret done the other day. Within a couple days the plate had sunk into my skin causing issues. We ended up replacing it with a bar which is kind of annoying in my mouth and it slips out sort ofplus you just want to play with the stupid thing. Mine probably would have healed properly if I would have followed instruction; dont drink, smoke, suck guys off that sort of stuff. I would rather get another tattoo than have that one pierced again. It hurt and the soaking and rinsing is quite annoying.

Hey, to everyone 18 or younger who wants to get their lip (or anything on your face, really) pierced, DON'T DO IT. Right away, anyway. You might not want to admit it, but your interests change a lot when you're young. I wanted to get a septum (nose) piercing when I was 15 and thought that it would be the coolest thing and I would love it forever, but only half a year later I decided that it would be a bad idea. And if I had gone through with it, I would've been stuck with a permanent hole or a gross scar in my face. I'm not saying piercings are bad, just make sure it's something you really truly want and it's not just a spontaneous sort of obsession that you decided you wanted only a month ago.

ON LABRETS,

I pierced my own labret the other day, which some may say is dumb but if u don't have the cash, what you gotta do right?
Anyway, it has turned out fine, a little swelling, but I did make some mistakes, so learn from them:

1. My needle wasn't sharp enough, and the inside skin of your mouyh is tough as nails, so I really had to force the last bit.

2. I decided to leave the needle in untill it healed, but pull it through so that it was just exposed outside. The I used plier's to cut out the excess on the inside.  
The first error was making it too short, and because it has expanded from swelling it's a constant battle to keep it in.  So use something long enough!

3. I was so nervous about the pain (which ended up being a minor issue) that i wasn't thinking about the angle, so it is at a slight angle but it's no biggie for now. Just make sure it goes straight.

4. I was alone. Get a friend or someone you trust to be close by in case something goes wrong or you need help, but it is easier if they don't watch the actual piercing.

I think, and I'm new to this, that doing yourself is fine if you keep it clean and sterilize everything you work with.  I have friends who do it all the time and they would never go to a pro.  However, if you are willing to spend the cash, a tried and trusted pro is better.  If you wanna ask me more or just chat about your piercing mail me at findtruth12@hotmail.com
HAPPY PIERCING!

Hey,

I've been thinking about getting my labret pierced for a few weeks. I have quite a high tolerance to pain (I have my eyebrow and 3 ear lobe piercings-none of them hurt) so I'm not really worried about the pain of the actual piercing. But I have some other questions :-)

1) How long (roughly) is the healing period?
2) Does it affect the way you talk?
3) Is it really annoying when trying to eat/drink?
4) How bad is the swelling?

Any help would be appreciated!

Oh, and for the person wanting to know how quickly it heals when you take it out, not very long. The stuff in saliva helps it to heal pretty quickly.

Hey.. I'm thinking about getting a labret, I really like it and think it looks nice. I've been wanting my eyebrow pierced too, and my dad says I'm allowed to get my tongue or my eyebrow pierced, but not get a labret.. hmm.. it's a tad unfair, but I said to him that I will get my eyebrow pierced on this Friday, and get a labret when I'm 16 (about a month and a half), because he can't stop me when I'm 16 lol :P Soo.. does your eye brow hurt? I heard it doesn't when you get it done.. but I'd like an honest answer lol thanks guys love you all xx

I just got my labret done about 2 days ago, and it hurt a little bit (when the needle for going through) but it was totally worth it. I mean, it bleed a little, but it didn't swell up or anything.

I got my eyebrow done a while ago too, and I must say that an eyebrow hurts more then a labret (in my opinion)
I also have my nipples pierced (I did them myself) and it totally saved me about 55$, and it was pain-free, which totally surprised me.

Now I'm planning on getting my septum done soon, does anyone know if a septum piercing hurts?

Hmm. I got my tongue done when I was 13 and it didn't hurt at all. There are no nerve endings in the center of your tongue, hence the no-pain. You feel a slight pressure on your tongue but that's it. Then about 2 months ago I got my labret done and it hurt a little, but definately far less than any of my other piercings. I have 12 right now, including my nape (the worst one pain wise) and it's definately worth the bit of pain. As for healing times, oral piercings heal quicker than any others. My labret was completely healed in less than 2 months which is really good because I have to wear a retainer when I start the day shifts at my job tomorrow. I was on the overnight shifts, so facial piercings weren't a prob, but now I need to wear retainers for them. And it also depends on your body. Different people heal differently. I heal really fast, so piercings and tattoos aren't really an issue with me cuz they heal so quickly. And yea, I live in LA and I don't know anywhere DECENT around LA that will pierce ANYONE under 16 (with or without parental signatures). Not as of about 2 years ago. When I had mine done 7 years ago it wasn't a prob, but nowadays it is! Shady places will do it, but I personally would not risk my health for something like that. If you can't get a reputable studio to pierce you because you are too young, then you need to wait until one does.

lip piercings don't hurt at all. and for that person that said it's meant to be the most painful, that is utter cr*p. Try getting your septum done. I have 13 piercings so far, lip was least painful. It just felt pure nice.

Hi,

My name is Skylar-Reska. Im 19 and I have a lebret piercing along with many others. For all you people who are worried about pain or whatever I will tell you some facts:

Ok, does it hurt? yes I'm not going to lie. The pain is NOT unbareable you don't cry or pass out, but it has a small ammount of pain.

No you cannot hide it from your parents unless you get the lebret stud and when your parents are around take the ball off. It looks a bit like you've got a black head.

Lebret piercings can get annoying.

When I got mine pierced it got really infected it wasn't really painful it just looked like a had a HUGE ulcer in my lip.

I don't know about the place that you live. But any proper professional piercer should not let you get it done unless you are over 16 or have a parent with you.

After you get it pierced you should leave it in for about 2 months. My boyfriend got his done and in the same day he had 2 take it out and put something else in there, it hurt a lot and it could damage tissue.

Hope this answered any of your questions. I think you should all go ahead with getting it done, think logically 1 minute at the most of pain for a life time of happiness =)

Cheers,

Skylar xox

wow, you people are crazy, and not in a good way, I don't think that it's a good idea for anyone to get piercings besides like a tongue (if you really want one that badly) or your ears, or tattoos, because when you grow there's the chance that the tattoo or piercing will stretch or migrate, which would just be horrible, think of it this way, if you get like a dolphin at 13 by 18 it'll look like a whale.

Basically piercings are bound to hurt, at least a little, but they won't be as bad if you don't stress out about how much they hurt or it will be worse than it really is. Also, I'd say that facial piercings, (I have my nose, septum and eyebrow) don't hurt quite as bad as gauging your ears. If you're going to try and convince your parents, maybe tell them that it's just a piercing, which can be taken out easily, unlike tattoos which are harder to get removed. Honestly, it's not even a big deal.

I'm 16 as well and i decided to do mine at home with a friend. She used a piercing earing, which was way less sharp than a needle is and it didn't hurt. Seriously, and i feel pain a lot easier than most people. She just had me put a carrot between my lip and teeth. It just feels weird and then u feel it pop through. She took the piercing earing out but didn't have the earing follow it through so she was digging around trying to find the whole. so we ended up having to re-pierce it. she didn't have the carrot there so that hurt a lil. but really, it doesn't hurt and they look so tight. Go for it!

Ive had many piercings and tounge is by far the least painful, until afterwards, labret is the oppisite. About the job interview thing, they have clear 'retainers' on the internet on plenty of sites mspiercing.com or bodycandy.com that have them. they are clear pieces of jewlery that u insert into the area and are barley visible. thats my advice.

I've pierced both of my eyebrows by myself the first one with a piercing needle and the second one with a 16 gauge sewing needle, suprisingly the one with the sewing needle didnt bleed but the one with the piercing needle bled alot,as i said i did both by myself i couldnt do them really fast so i just worked my way through after numbing with some ice for 10-15 mins and they hurt a lil but it hurt less than getting your earlobes pierced...ive herd that eyebrow piercings are the least painful piercing there is, but it all depends on the piercing.ive also got my tongue pierced and both lobes done twice,along with both cartilages of my ear.my next piercing will either be my nose or my lip and im debating whether i want to do them myself or get them done professionaly,so far the two piercings ive dont on myself have turned out excellent and any piercing is worth getting.

Im 16, and have wanted my labret done for a while, it probably sounds weird, but I dont really trust the professionals, because they do it fast, and im scared theyd go through a nerve or somthing that couldnt be fixed.. im doing it myself with a pin.. ive done my belly botton my nose and 6 on my ears all with a pin.. so hopfully this one goes well too=] ps. i had no infections with any of the piercings i did myself.

I got a spike in my labret two days ago, at Nottingham's Access All Areas, and it didn't hurt what so ever. I have a low pain threshold but they numbed it well and the only thing you felt was pressure and a sharp prick, hurt, but not much at all. It's just a bit sore at the moment but it's a bit wonky. HOPEFULLY it'll come back to normal once it's healed and once I have a proper metal replacement (it's got a plastic bar at the mo)

Anyone know if it'd straighten out?!

i had my tounge done almost 3 years ago and i'm now 17. the best piercing ever. there was a small amount of pain but for me not nearly as bad as biting your tounge and healed up after a week although during that time eating is the hardest part and avoiding not biting it with your teeth. i've also had my ears pirced 3 times, my eyebrow done twice in 2 different places and the the webbing between your pointer finger and thumb, although the eyebrow and hand one's didnt work out, the tounge piercing has stuck by me now for 3 years. only problem i've had was the bar was too short and my tounge started to grow over it, SOLUTION: just buy a slightly longer bar or a bigger ball and your fine. definately think anyone considering a tounge piercing should get it done. the pain is bearable and very easy to take care of aslong as your committed (which you should be if your considering a piercing) hope i helped anyone out much love xoxo

I got a labret Monroe piercing. I love it.. i got it done 3 days ago, WHATEVER you do.. don't change the starter ball to a smaller stud until the swelling is down. lol i had a lil issue with that last night.. i was sick of the big ass one so i put a little diamond in.. it was fine until i went to sleep. Woke up in the morning and the diamond was half in my lip.. so i put my starter ball back in and am now waiting for the swelling to go down again so i can have my little one! SO JUST WAIT FOR THE SWELLING TO GO DOWN BEFORE CHANGING IT.. also, use either saline solution.. or you can make your own. Do 8 ounces of water and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. I even took a  q-tip and rubbed the salt water around the piercing.. it stings but it helps. Do that twice a day (So it gets all the yellow crust off around it)... and Rinse with the watered down mouthwash.. Its looking great and im excited:) i also pierced my belly button by myself and have had that for 4 years! SO GOOD LUCK:) just take care of it is my advice

definetly want to get it done, but im afraid it'll do something to my teeth or gums? also a lot of employers look down on it, and I'm 18, so i have to be able to pay for university. I want to get it done, but right now, those concerns are taking over, and have been for the past 3 years! If you want to fool around with it, I just put a magnetic earring in to see how it would look and feel. Everyone thought it looked great, a little odd, but thats probably because it's out of character, but otherwise it looked great.

Ive never heard of a 13 year with a peircing other than their ears, in the UK you have to be 18+! I have I have over 11 peircings included a labret, tongue, nose and other places I wont divuldge with children reading! I dont think anyone can advise whether they hurt or not as everyone has a different pain threshold and it also depends on how worked up you get before hand! What is important is how you look after it while it is healing as an infected peircing where ever it is, is gonna hurt!

I had my labret pierced for a couple days. It didn't hurt at all, I didn't even realize she did it. Just a little pressure. My ink hurt alot worse. I recommend using sea salt with any piercing in the mouth. If you use mouth wash it kills the skin around the wound and it will take longer to heal. You cans also use lavender oil as it kills bacteria, relives pain, and promotes healing. If you want take two IBprophin right after it is done to help pain. As for passing out during this piercing, You wont. Unless you are really bothered by getting pierced in which case you shouldn't get any piercings anyway. Since I have had mine I have a little trouble eating because it gets caught on my teeth and gums.


The most painful piercings are the industrial, nipples, any genitalia, and the nose.  

If you go into any piercing thinking it is gonna hurt then it will definitely hurt and you will probably pass out. Something I have done is to never ask how much it hurts because you will always psych yourself out. The human mind is a very powerful tool. You can think about being sick and develop a temperature or think about getting pierced in a painful area and pass out. Just think that there was a time when they operated without any painkiller.

Have fun modding your body!!!

Don't worry about getting your labret pierced. The pain completely depends on the person. And I deifinately don't think it's the most painfull piercing, getting my medusa done was way worse than my labret. But they heal amazing and they're totally worth it. If you want to get pierced, go for it! (I'm 18.)

I'm getting my nose and labret done in a couple o' weeks...without parental permission. That's gonna be fun.

And I'm probably gonna get accused of copying a couple of my friends who are older, so managed to do it before me.

But if you reeeeeally want something, like I do, stuff like that and the pain of getting it done won't matter.

So just go for it, yeah?
