Vertical labret piercing

What is a Vertical labret piercing?

Have you been putting much thought about going into one of those body piercing salons? For the past few decades or so, surface piercing or as it is more commonly known as body piercing, has been gaining back its popularity. Now there are several types of body piercing that a person can choose from. Say for example, a vertical labret piercing.

There is one thing to remember though, if you really have set your mind into getting a body piercing done and you walk into a shop and ask around, if they tell you that they would be using piercing guns; you better step out and look for another salon to go to. Since piercing guns can not be properly sterilized, using it for body piercing does not assure you of being safe from infection at all.

Although the most common of body parts that people have pierced first are the ears, there are several types of body piercing that are available these days. There is nose piercing, navel piercing, nipple piercing, nape piercing, tongue piercing and the labret type of piercing.

So what exactly is a vertical labret piercing?

Vertical labret piercing is the kind of piercing that can be found on the lower part of the lip area. Over the course of the years, this type of piercing has undergone a lot of changes. The labret’s name came from the type of jewelry that is usually worn with beads. Vertical labrets are jewelry that is pierced through the upper side of the lip and down to the lower part. The lowbret type of piercing on the other hand has a piercing all the way down to the chin. The medusa is located on the upper lip right between the center ridge of the lower lip.

Now if you do decide that a piercing is something that you really would want to do, you have to keep in mind that you should never try to pierce yourself or even ask a friend to use one of those Do It Yourself piercing kits. It is always advisable to go to a professional piercer’s salon and have it done there. There is such a high risk that the wound would get infected if you try piercing yourself.

Healing after a vertical labret piercing

You have to remember that when you have already had your piercing done, it would require a lot of aftercare on your part. This will ensure speedy healing. Do not use anything that the piercer did not recommend and do not do anything that they did not instruct you to do.

Vertical labret piercing, as well as other different types of piercing can be very sensitive and would need to be taken care of properly. Stay away from drinking alcoholic drinks and smoking as this slows down your body’s processes to heal itself. Wash the wound only twice in one day with a gentle antibacterial soap and clean water. Make sure your hands are very clean when you do have to touch your piercing.
