my 16g vertical labret - an almost disasterous experience

I got my vertical labret done today. I'm very happy with it but, mind you, today could easily have turned into the stuff that piercing horror stories are made of. I got to the place a little early and went in. They weren't busy but the place smelt like cigarette smoke and they had a little child running around, pulling the laminated tattoo displays off of the walls. The place looked a little dirty and immediately made me uneasy. The guy that got the signs to form didn't know what a vertical labret was and my appointment was only written ... read more

Lip Piercing

I made the final decision to get my lip pierced after my sister in law showed me hers. Now, I had always wanted to pierce my lip, but never could because at the time, I lived with my parents and had promised them that I wouldn't get anymore while I was still living under their roof (though I've gotten most of my lower body piercings and my tongue done at that time.) There was the small problem with my job not allowing facial piercings while working with customers. The thing is, my sister in law was the LAST person I ... read more

Great Labret Experience in Madison, WI

Over the past month I've done a lot of research online/on BME about labrets and looked at tons of photos. Do I want a lowbret? A lip ring? Off to one side or in the middle? Lip rings are not something I like. Being in my 30s, I think that is definitely more of a younger person's thing. I was looking for something I would keep for a long while, like my tongue ring. I liked the idea of it being right under my lip but with how full my lips are and where my teeth are behind the lip, ... read more

Vertical Labret

I had been contemplating getting a piercing for a few months before I decided on my vertical labret. I still remember the first time I saw the piercing, I thought it was unbelievably cool, and I knew that I wanted to have it! I had heard in several forums that it was a very painful piercing (though, I do *sort of* like pain, so I wasn't TOO worried). One of my friend's knew someone at Sinister and had arranged for me to get it pierced there. The night of the piercing, literally 30 minutes before my appointment, I got a ... read more

Didn't hurt a bit!

I've decided for the past while that I wanted my lip pierced. I work in a place that was really against it and told me it was not allowed. I looked through the employee manual and didn't see anything mentioned, plus coworkers had mods so I kept asking and tried to be patient until finally my lovely manager said yes. I kind of decided to do it on impulse. Don't get me wrong, I put thought into it but I decided to do it right before my shift was going to start. Since it was a piercing I didn't have ... read more

The happiest and friendliest piercer's in Chester!

So, basically I wanted to get another piercing as I wanted something more than my existing piercings of my ears and my vertical labret. As I loved my labret so much and got so many compliments off it I decided to get something else near my mouth pierced. As I moved to Chester less than a year ago I was unsure about where any piercers in Chester where. I knew of one near Tesco but that looked a bit amateur and dirty in my opinion. Then after speaking to a friend I learned of The Piercing Bodz who are located ... read more

Crooked smile

Around Christmastime when I was 18, I decided it was time for a change. I needed to add to my forever-growing repertoire of body mods. I already had my septum pierced and wanted to add to my work in progress that I like to call my corpse. My septum piercing was a 'please stop running away now, k thanks' gift from my mother. It took place in my filthy garage by a big biker dude who does tattoos. Piercing was obviously not his forte! He had me sit in a plastic lawn chair and looked very befuddled by his shiny ... read more

Snake Bites, small planet sized lip.

Although I have been into piercings for as long as I can remember, my parents aren't into it, and made me wait until I was 18 to get anything done (although my ears are stretched and I pierced my ears myself, about 14 times...which I have to warn you is extremly unsafe and something you should never do.) so on my 18th birthday my friend and I went to Custom Ink and Steel to get my septum done (my first choice obviously because it can be flipped up.) but I've wanted my lip pierced since I was about 12 or ... read more

After FIVE years, I got it!

About five years ago, my friends and I were very into going to the local arcade and playing Dance Dance Revolution. During our time there, we met some very interesting people, including the first person I personally knew who had a lip ring. He was older than me, and every time I was around him, I fell more and more in love with a lip ring. It didn't help that one of my close friends became friends with a girl who had both sides of her lip pierced (in addition to her nose and her eyebrow). Being around these people ... read more

The best piercing

Just like any other day I was considering a new piercing since I hadn't got one in a while and I was getting very bored with my right lip piercing. I ended up deciding to narrow my many choices down to three; all of them I was going to end up taking out my lip stud for, the three choices were my septum, labret or the medusa. The first place I went to help me decide on my choices was BME. The photos and stories and also friend's opinions really helped me narrow it down to either the medusa or ... read more
