What exactly is lip piercing?

A body modification that involves piercing the lips is called lip piercing. It can be done on your lips or around the area. You can decorate your lip opening with gorgeous jewelry

You have at least 14 options for lip piercings. Most of the options fall into the category of “bites”, but every bite is positioned differently, and there are several other lip piercing types besides bites that you can get. Let’s take a look at each of the lip piercing types, what differentiates them from each other, and what kind of celeb lip piercing you like.

There are many types of lip-piercing

Labret

Labret means a lip-piercing with one puncture. This is located underneath the bottom lip. Although ‘Labret’ is actually the name of the jewellery piece itself, it is also the location of the piercing opposite of the Medusa which sits in the middle under the lip. This piece can be worn with either a circular or ball-closure ring, or a labret.

6- to 8-week healing

Cost: $40-$65

Monroe

One facial puncture is located just above the lower lip, on the left side. The monroe lip piercings, which are probably the most well-known lip piercings available, were named after Marilyn Monroe. They mimic her beauty spot on the upper lip. You can place it on your upper lip or anywhere else, although the popular one is usually the right.

Pain: 3/10

Healing can take 8 to 12 weeks

Cost: $30-$50

Medusa / Philtrum

Medusa can be described as a single, under-the-philtrum piercing. It is found above the upper lip. The piercing is done just below the nose septum, which is called “philtrum”. Medusa lies in the groove beneath the upper lips and is therefore well-emphasized.

Pain: 4/10

Three weeks for healing

Cost: $40-$85

Vertical labret

The lower lip puncture is located between the bottom and middle lip. Vertical labret punctures go directly below the lower lip, while labret piercings are made from the bottom of the lips. However, vertical lapret piercings reach the top of your lip and go all the way up to the top. These lip piercings typically use short, straight barsbells.

Pain: 6/10

Healing can take 8 to 12 weeks

Cost: $40-$70

Jestrum

A single puncture is made, centering in the upper lips.

Pain: 5/10

The healing process takes 3 to 6 weeks

Cost: $40-$85

Dahlia

The mouth corners are the place for double piercing. The Dahlia is located just outside the corners of  the mouth and can be worn by a labret, ball closure rings and a circular barbell. This type of piercing is often done in pairs which give the illusion of ‘bites’!

Pain: 7/10

12- to 20-week healing

Cost: $20-$80

Cyber Bites

Cyber bites piercings can be found in the groove below the lower lip. It’s actually a combination of a Medusa piercing and a standard labret piercing. In most cases, the piercer will insert labret screws in both piercings. If you are happy with the results of your labret piercing, you may switch to either a loop or circular barbell, as well as a captive ring. It’s best to stick with a labret stud for your Medusa piercing, though, even after it’s fully healed.

Pain: 5/10

6- to 12-week healing

Cost: $50-$80

Angel Bites

A double symmetrical puncture is located just below the upper lip.

A pair of upper lips piercings called an angel bite are located to the left or right of the “philtrum”, which is the part of your lower lip that is rigid below your nose. Labret studs serve as starter jewelry for angel piercings. Labret studs are ideal because they have a flat backing on them on the end that’s inside your mouth and resting against your gums, and those flat backings tend to be less irritating than balls would be.

Pain: 6/10

Healing:  7 to 9 weeks

Cost: $50-$80

Dolphin Bite

The openings for the dolphin bites piercing are two, located below your lower lip, and very close together. The piercing is located immediately below the lower jaw, and fairly close together in the area that would house a labret.

Pain: 5/10

6- to 8-week healing

Cost: $50-$80

Spider Bites

Double puncture below the lower lip. The spider bite piercing involves two piercings placed close together, just below the corner of the mouth.  You can use hoops or circular barbells to place spider bites close to the lips.

Pain: 4/10

The healing process takes between 4 and 12 weeks

Cost: $40-$80

Snake Bites

Double puncture the lower lip. The lower lip is at the same distance as the middle and looks like a snake bite.

You can insert labret studs and hoops when you are pierced by a snake bit. Choose soft and flexible labret studs made of PTFE. They’ll be less likely to cause your gums to recede if the jewelry is constantly rubbing against your lower gum line. If you accidentally bite down on your snake bites piercing jewelry, there’s a high risk for chipping a tooth if your jewelry is made of stainless steel or titanium, which is another good reason to opt for PTFE labret studs, at least during the initial healing process. Once you’re fully healed, your piercer can insert more closely-fitting labret studs that are less likely to cause irritation or accidentally get bitten while you’re eating.

Pain: 5/10

Healing takes 6-8 weeks

Cost: $50-$80
