    I've been eyeing this one for a while and finally decided to do it. I'm admittedly a little vain about my lips and was worried about scarring. After those fears were alleviated ( IF i chose to remove them, I'd most likely only have the typical "hole" on the bottom lip that most labrets leave but no top of the lip scarring) I carted my happy behind down to Koi Piercing Studio in SLC, Utah..my regular trusted piercing haven. I brought along my boyfriend Josh, who later decided to get 10 gauge lobe piercings done.

    Patrick (piercer for today) recommended a flat topped curved barbell instead of jumping right in with the ball sitting on top of my lip. The ball part of the regular barbell really tries to burrow down in the lip at first, especially with the early stages of healing and the flat top is less likely to catch, he explained. I am, of course, welcome to switch to the regular curved barbell with the traditionally seen "ball sitting on top of the lip" look should I desire that later. (and probably will)

    Pain: Wow..you know, this one really hurt. Quite a bit. :eek3: I somehow had expected that I would be able to anticipate the feeling having done my Monroe but..TOTALLY different feeling! lol Please don't let me talk you out of this as the pain is pretty manageable. I did a few mercy gasps though..I'm not too proud to admit that. :rofl:
    A half hour later, and dinner in my stomach...its not painful at all. A little warm..no real swelling at all, although of course I could wake up to a totally different story in the morning.

    As far as aftercare instructions, warm sea salt mouth rinses 3-4 times a day for a few weeks, take ibuprofen before bed (to reduce nighttime swelling) during that time, even if its not painful, and pretty much, thats it.

    Excuse the fuzzy camera phone pictures. Its the only camera i have available immediately.

    The shirt on the bottom picture says "(fuck) you"...in case anyone was wondering ..lol (the "you" is cut off)

    Lip piercings generally take 5-10 weeks to heal totally. My monroe seemed to heal for the most part in about a month but the mild redness around the piercing (more visible on my fair skin than most, I'd imagine) took another couple weeks till I didnt notice it. Im assuming my lip will hold the same true.

    Thanks to everyone for the compliments! I'm very happy with this one! :bigthumb:

    Thanks Mike!

    We just celebrated our 5th year together this weekend. We did a LOT of "practice" on a LOT of things. ;) (Yes..lol..but with no success yet, which is fine)

    I love it too. I have a horizontal labret. I regret not getting a vertical.

    If facial piercings weren't such a bitch to heal I would take it out and start again.

    Update on the healing: (for those considering the piercing)

    Its pretty easy to take care of but the only problem I've really run into is realizing just HOW MUCH i used the top of that bottom lip. Sneezing jars it, Smiling, I realized that when i eat, i lick my bottom lip after EVERY bite, drinking is difficult without putting the glass/straw to the side of my lip instead of in the middle. And to be perfectly blunt and perhaps a bit crass, SEX is different. I can't put my face down in the pillow without turning my head to the side! :rofl: :rofl: Oral sex is OUT of the question. :hs:
    Im sure these will all be non issues once the piercing is completely healed and painless.

    For now, the top part of my bottom lip appears to be the only part having more difficulty, and i think that is due to the amount of wear and tear it takes daily. (ie: the above mentioned) I have slight discharge on occasion and most often after showering, which i consider normal.

    On a pain level, its more mild annoyance when a straw slips under the flat barbell or when i find myself absentmindedly licking at it, both of which cause a low grade throbbing feeling. The swelling is gone and only reappears VERY slightly when i jar it.

    Still quite pleased with the appearance and look forward to its total healing. :bigthumb:

    Thanks for the update. Maybe some pics to see it without the swelling?
