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

Self done lip ring

One day, my cousin had mentioned to me that she thought it was cool to get a lip ring. I had only had my ears done twice, and two piercings in my cartilage, but i thought it was a cool idea for her. After a while I kept thinking more and more about it, and thought it would be pretty cool to get it done for myself too. I had had friends that had their nose pierced, and belly button pierced, but never lip. I figured it was something different to try. When i decided I wanted to get my ... read more

Positive Labret Experience ♥

First the boring background. Ever since my obsession started with Disturbed I had wanted a labret, also my father has one. My mother has always been REALLY against piercings, but said I could get one on March Break of 2008 (turned 15 in December). The labret completes my appearance. It really adds to my personality, so I suggest going for it if it's one of the piercings you stare lovingly at, you will NOT regret it. THE EXPERIENCE. When March Break came my mother was driving me and my sister to Hardcore Piercings & Tattoos to get our birthday piercing ... read more

Once a lip ring, now snakebites.

I know it says six months, but it's actually closer to 9. There's no option for that, but since it's closer to six months than a year (only by a few days!) I figured that's what I'd go with. For three months, I'd had a lip ring on the right side. For a bit over a month and a half, I'd been absently thinking that hey, snakebites are cool. For about three weeks, I'd been thinking that damn, snakebites are awesome. I should seriously think about getting the other side of my lip pierced. For about a week and a ... read more

My first piercing

I don't have anything pierced, not even my ears. Ever since November of 2007, I've had his strange obbsession with snakebites. I was convinced that they'd look good on anyone. But my parents wern't. I tried talking them into snakebites for the longest time, but they wern't giving in. I asked for them as a Christmas present. No luck. It didn't take long for my obbsession to die down a bit, and, obviously, my parents were pretty happy about then. But then it started up again in January, and I wanted them again. And more than before. This time I ... read more

My DIY centre labret piercing!

First of all, I'd like to say that this happened six days ago, not a week ago. But close enough. Hehe. Second of all, I'd like to stress that while I performed the procedure myself, I had done several months' worth of research, and ordered in all the correct equipment. I do not condone people jabbing random safety pins through their face in a serious attempt at self-piercing, even though I did something similar with this. I have been known to act stupidly. Right, now, on to the experience. I'd decided that I wanted a new piercing about three weeks ... read more

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

How To Make Mistakes

This is one of the experiences that you do not emulate by any means necessary. Unless you enjoy swollen lips and being grounded. This is to show you what NOT to do when you desperately want a medusa piercing, as I did. It all started early this past October. For whatever reason, I became hell-bent on procuring a medusa piercing. I did plenty of research, and then promptly ignored the dangers of misguided do-it-yourself jobs. I went on to hound my parents endlessly. In retrospect, I realize that this was perhaps not the best course of action. But I, being ... read more
