How to pierce your labret

Selecting a reputable piercing studio that has many years of experience in lip piercings is important. After the professional piercer cleans the lower lip, you would be given an antibacterial solution to rinse your mouth before the procedure. After the entry and exit points are marked, the bottom lip is clamped to pass a sterilized, hollow needle through the center. The jewelry is carefully inserted into the pierced spot.

Labret piercing pain

Although this bottom lip piercing hurts, handling it would not be difficult if you have a high pain tolerance. Localized swelling, bruising, and intermittent bleeding of the lower lip might occur for few days. However, these are normal consequences of piercing that do not pose any serious problem.

Labret piercing infection and complications

An infected piercing is marked by severe swelling, redness, soreness, and yellow discharge. If the symptoms get worse then taking quick medical aid is necessary. There is also a risk of teeth, and gum damage as the back disk of the jewelry keeps rubbing against the surface of the gum, causing erosion. Wearing jewelry of the right size might help in preventing the problem.

In some cases, poor placement of the piercing or use of wrong jewelry increases the chances of rejection and migration. Visit the piercing studio immediately if you experience severe irritation and discomfort.
