Types of Upper Lip Piercings – There’s no end to being different

Body piercing on any part of the body screams of individuality but with so many followers,  sometimes it gets hard to rely on body piercing for exclusivity. So what do you do then? Simple go for more unusual trends just like the ones that have emerged in upper lip piercing.

Now it’s not only the Monroe or Madonna piercing that upper lip piercing is all about. These days labret studs, barbells and other kinds of body jewelry are put to more unique (piercing) uses.

There’s much more and beyond…

Monroe Piercing – Remember the sexy mole on her upper lip? Well it’s just that but the difference is here a labret stud makes you beautiful instead of a mole.

Jestrum Piercing – In this a curved barbell goes through the philtrum or the groove in the center of the upper lip and comes out under the upper lip.

Medusa Piercing – Here the labret stud goes through the philtrum or the groove under the nasal septum.

Angel Bites -  If a single piercing on the upper lip makes a Monroe piercing then two on either side makes angel bites.

Horizontal Philtrum Piercing – When the piercing goes horizontally through the philtrum. The two barbell beads become visible on either side of the groove.

Cyber Bites – When a Medusa piercing is complemented by a labret piercing, it’s called cuber bites. Trendy and cool, cyber bites are an in-thing these days.

Choose whichever suits you best and be a trend-setter!

Will it be Body Ink or Body Jewelry or Both?

Body jewelry and body ink have never been like north and south, in fact each adds to the appeal of the other. These two trends are the most popular tools of body modifications. While body ink literally inscribes your attitude on your body, body jewelry puts you in the Glitterati club!

Generally those who go for a tattoo also go for body piercing or vice versa.

We’re not going to indulge in ‘this-is-better-than-that’ debates. Tattoos or body piercing or both of them together – are simply what makes people get up and take note of you!

And there’s no limit to how wild can tattoo art and body piercing can get. From getting a tattoo in the most bizarre places on the body to getting your eye ball pierced, body modification seems now to be defying the conventions of the avant-gardist world!

Whether Body Tattoo or Body Piercing – The coolness has to come with age

Like all other unusual things, body modifications does not come that easy. One has to be ready both in body and mind to get either. There is an age limit which many teens try to defy.

Since both body piercing and tattoos involve needles, sharp piercing equipment and obviously pain – a minor would not be able to take it and should not, even if he or she thinks they can. Body piercing or getting a tattoo can lead to health hazards if you do it before age.

Also for either go to a professional piercer and tattoo artist!

Show the world your personality with ink/ body jewelry and dare to be different.
