Lip Piercing - The Most Popular Types

November 05, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 206

Presently, there are various means of self-expression. Someone tries to wear an eccentric outfit. Someone else goes for a less usual haircut. Yet an additional way to express your personality is by means of lip piercing. The reason for this, above all, is the fact that our lips are probably the most expressive area on human face. Next, lip piercing is truly considered to be the easiest and the safest kind of piercing, since there are no major blood vessels located in human lips.

Although it is termed as lip piercing, it's not necessarily located on the lip itself, and can be found anywhere around the mouth. According to the specific position they occupy or graphic images they are associated with, types of lip piercing are named as follows:

• Monroe - located on the upper lip, exactly where Marilyn Monroe had her beauty spot.

• Madonna - this is just on the opposed side of Monroe piercing, named after Madonna's birthmark.

• Angelbites - these represent two piercings on the opposite sides of the upper lip.

• Snakebites - similar to Angelbites, but these are located on both sides of the lower lip.

• Medusa - considered being the real top labret piercing since it crosses the middle of the upper lip.

• Dahlia - another piercing executed on the upper lip, near the crease of the mouth.

• Philtrum - very similar to Medusa, refers to upper lip piercing.

• Cleft - is found on the portion between the edges of the top lip.

• Canine bites - located namely on the lip area. These are comparatively few in number if related to other types which have been previously mentioned.

How to Choose

The major thing you need to do even before you start choosing the preferable position for your piercing is trying to figure out the sensation of having these lip rings or studs inside your mouth. If you manage to understand what it will be like, then chances are that your lip piercing won't influence the way you eat, drink or talk.

Lower lip is much more suggested for piercing for the reason that it doesn't directly communicate with the gums. Thus you can be sure the area will be out of any danger. However, in case you take the decision to dedicate both sides of your upper lip to piercing, you should better use labret studs alone. Check out for the materials these are made of. For instance, it's great to have labret studs made of 18 carat gold, niobium, titanium, or surgical steel. What's more, check out that the jewels you choose for lip piercing are unproblematic to take out.
