Monroe Piercing

Monroe Piercing Monroe piercing is a popular type of facial piercing that’s both attractive and discreet enough. It is a great choice for people who like their piercings and jewelry to be small and elegant but still noticeable and unique. Monroe is a great pick because it looks very good without ever becoming overwhelming.

About Monroe Piercing

Monroe piercing can easily be described as a lip piercing placed above the upper lip. It is made to resemble a beauty mark. The name of the piercing is inspired by famous actress Marilyn Monroe, who had a beauty mark on the left side of her lip. Some people refer only to piercings on the left side as “Monroe” while those done on the right side are known as “Madonna” piercings, after the singer who has a beauty mark on that side.

It’s not surprising that this piercing is more popular with the ladies, even though there are also some men who opt for this type of piercing to a great success.

One good thing about a Monroe piercing is that it can be somewhat customized. That is, you can choose a position on the upper lip according to your wishes, preferences and your unique anatomy. This is why you should think about different placements you might want and decide on the exact spot you want to have pierced. Depending on the placement and your unique facial features, a Monroe piercing can have many different effects.

The Procedure

Monroe piercing is not difficult to perform, but a special attention should be taken to the exact spot you wish to have pierced. Most piercers will give you a choice of several spots. Typically, the piercer will mark the spot with a permanent ink marker so you may test several placements until you are satisfied with your chosen one.

Once you are happy with the placement, the piercer will prepare you for the procedure. This will typically include rinsing your mouth with mouthwash for sterilization. After this, your upper lip will be clamped.

When all preparations are done, the piercer will perform the piercing by passing a needle through the lip. Typically, a Monroe piercing is done at 18 or 16 gauge.

Once the piercing is made, the piercer will insert the jewelry. The initial jewelry will be longer than the one you’ll later need, to account for swelling. Most piercers will tell you to go back in a few weeks to have a shorter jewelry placed. It’s very important to have that done by the piercer – changing jewelry yourself during this stage is not safe nor recommended.

Aftercare

The aftercare is similar to the aftercare needed for other piercing types. You should clean your healing piercing with a salt solution several times per day. This will clean the piercing and help reduce the swelling, thus making the healing faster.

You should also brush your teeth at least three times a day and after every meal. You need to keep the inside of your mouth clean and sanitized. This will reduce the number of bacteria present in the mouth.

Keep in mind that Monroe piercings are prone to infections is proper care is not followed, so you should take aftercare and cleaning instructions seriously.

Jewelry

The most common jewelry for Monroe piercing is a simple but elegant labret stud. These jewelry pieces are lightweight and practical, so they are ideal for Monroe piercing (and most of the other lip piercing types).

Remember: just because these labret studs are simple, it doesn’t mean they can’t be very beautiful and effective! You may choose between golden, titanium and surgical steel studs with simple beads on the end. Or you may opt for labret studs with sparkly gems on the top. This is the easiest way to make your Monroe piercing decorated! Finally, you may choose a labret stud with a small decorative charm on top, for a really attractive effect.

On the other hand, you may opt for a different jewelry type, such as a barbell.

Belly Jewelry Tips

Belly (navel) piercing is among the most popular types of piercings. Luckily, it also means there are enough quality, body-safe jewelry pieces you can find. Belly jewelry comes in many different styles, materials and sizes, so you’ll sure be able to find something you truly like.

Choosing Safe Jewelry

The large number of different belly jewelry pieces also means that there are many subpar jewelry products you can find. You can buy belly jewelry almost anywhere: at a mall, or even on the streets. More often than not, these jewelry pieces are of poor quality and can endanger your health.

To keep yourself safe, it’s important to stick to reliable stores and only use jewelry made of body-safe materials. This is the only way to ensure satisfaction and to keep yourself safe and healthy. It also means you will have to pay a bit more than for that cheap jewelry piece you can find at a mall, but trust us, it’s a money well-spent. You don’t want to endanger your health, risk allergies (or worse conditions), experience infections and inflammation, or have your piercing rejected, just to save a few bucks. At the same time, you don’t really have to spend a fortune on a quality jewelry piece. There are many reasonably priced but still high-quality products you can find. What is important is to stay away from the cheap pieces (cheap both in price and craft).

Navel Piercing Tips

To keep yourself on the safe side and to keep your belly piercing clean, you need to stick to a few rules. Here are the basic navel piercing tips to follow:

  • Wait until your belly piercing is fully healed to change your jewelry. It’s true that most initial piercing jewelry pieces are very plain and simple, but there’s a reason for it. It’s understandable that you want to try different jewelry styles, but patience is important here. You need to wait for your new belly piercing to completely heal before you can try new jewelry. Remember, it can take as long as 9 months for your belly piercing to heal completely. In the most cases, it’s safe to change jewelry after 4-6 months, but keep in mind that healing time is individual.
  • Make sure to protect your belly jewelry from being snagged on clothing during healing time. Use an eye patch or hard plastic and secure it over your belly to protect both the piercing and jewelry.
  • Most common belly jewelry pieces are 3/8 inches long, but there are many other sizes to choose from. When picking the best belly jewelry for yourself, make sure that it’s not too small. Short navel jewelry can irritate the skin and it opens the door to infections and inflammation.
  • Always pick lightweight belly jewelry pieces. Heavy jewelry can make your skin sore and it can stretch your piercing even if you don’t want that to happen. Not to mention that heavy jewelry can make a problem when moving or changing clothes. If you really love heavy jewelry, don’t wear it for a long period of time. Never sleep with heavy belly jewelry.
  • Be careful with overly complicated jewelry pieces. There are many gorgeous belly curved barbells with lots of gems and dangles, and it’s understandable you might want to wear them in special situations. However, these jewelry pieces are best not to be worn every day. They can get caught on clothes. Also, these jewelry pieces are there to be shown, so wear them only when you want to have your belly shown.
  • People with the so-called “outie” belly button can have a true navel piercing, where the navel itself is pierced (as the opposite of just the skin above or under it). These people can also wear unique jewelry pieces in their belly piercing.

How to Hide Your Piercing

There are many situations when you might need to hide your piercing. For example, many employers still ask for piercings to be hidden. There are also some situations when you might want to change your style and appear like you don’t have a pierced eyebrow, nose or another body part.

Whatever the reason may be, it’s important to know how to hide your piercing when you need to. One might say that the easiest thing to do is to simply take out the jewelry and mask the piercing hole with makeup. While this may work short term, keep in mind that piercings tend to heal quickly. Even a few hours (or, in some cases, less than an hour) can make your piercing start to heal so inserting jewelry can become difficult. One day without jewelry can make your piercing heal to a smaller gauge, which will make inserting jewelry painful and uncomfortable.

To avoid these problems, it’s important to find a way to keep jewelry inserted but without making the piercing overly noticeable. There are two main ways to achieve this: using special hider jewelry (usually made in skin color variations) or using transparent retainers.

Hider Jewelry

Hider Plug

Hider Plug

Hider jewelry is specially made to hide your piercing. They don’t always match your skin tone perfectly, but they are often close enough not to be distracting. While they won’t hide your piercing completely, they are very plain-looking so they don’t attract attention. In some circumstances, it can appear like you don’t have any jewelry or piercing at all.

Hider jewelry is particularly useful for large gauges and stretched piercings, especially for stretched earlobe piercings. To hide your stretched earlobe, it’s useful to wear a special hider plug made to minimize the piercing hole in your earlobe while still allowing you to retain your piercing.

Stretching your earlobe is a time-consuming process so once you get to a gauge you’re happy with, it can be very annoying to make your piercing heal to a smaller gauge. To prevent this, wearing a hider plug is the best way to go.

Piercing Retainers

Piercing retainers are special jewelry pierces made of transparent materials. These retainers are made to keep your piercing open and ready while making it seem like you don’t have any jewelry. They are not completely invisible, but they are plain enough so they are suitable for all situations in which you are not allowed to wear your piercing jewelry.

There are many different types of retainers. They are shaped differently, based on the type of peircing and the body part. You may choose between eyebrow retainers, navel retainers, labret retainers, and more.

Retainers are typically made of special, transparent materials, such as lucite or bioplast. There are also many quality acrylic retainers. Whatever you do, it’s important to choose a retainer made of a body-safe material.

Retainers also come in handy during pregnancy. Many pregnant women face a dilemma on what to do about their belly piercing, since most jewelry types are incompatible with a growing, pregnant stomack. At the same time, many women don’t want to get rid of their navel piercing altogether. This is why flexible navel retainers are so useful: this is a great way to keep your belly piercing during pregnancy without hurting your stomach and without wearing inappropriate jewelry.

Popular Piercings and Jewelry Types

Piercing is a popular form of body modification and all enthusiast who love various piercing styles can enjoy many different types of jewelry. The choice of jewelry is often a very personal one. In a way, it will depend on the body part and the type of piercing you have. For example, certain piercing types require straight barbells as the basic form of jewelry while others require curved barbells, captive bead rings, flesh tunnels, etc. Generally speaking, though, most piercings can use many different types of body jewelry, so it’s often the question of one’s personal preferences and style.

Your body jewelry should suit you and make you express yourself in the best possible way. It should show who you are and it should be something you truly like and feel comfortable with. Many people have one style they stick to, while others like to experiment. Some people prefer simple body jewelry types while others go for more elaborate, complex designs. There is no right or wrong way to go here.

There are some popular piercing types and body parts many people choose to pierce, and these piercings often require a certain type of jewelry. Within these types, you are free to choose designs you like the most.

Earlobe

Earlobe piercing is the most common body piercing. It’s so common and socially accepted that it’s often not even considered body piercing in “true” sense. There are many types of earrings people like to wear in their earlobes, and the choice of designs and materials is endless. Rings, dangling jewelry types and other forms are popular.

Special type of earlobe piercing is a stretched earlobe piercing, erroneously known as “gauge”. These piercings are stretched to a larger size so a different type of jewelry can be worn in the stretched hole, such as ear plug, earlet, flesh tunnel, tusk, spiral, and others. These jewelry types are often made of organic materials and they can be very effective. The “trick” when choosing jewelry for stretched piercing is to always choose the correct gauge. Wrong size can put a pressure on your piercing and tear your earlobe, which can lead to infections and other problems. Therefore, before choosing a design you like, you need to make sure the jewelry is of a correct gauge and also made of a body-safe material you can wear safely.

Ear Cartilage

Various types of ear cartilage piercings are also popular. These piercings are suitable for many different jewelry types, so you can choose between rings or barbells, depending on your style. People who have multiple cartilage piercings often like to connect them with the same jewelry piece. The most popular form of this is the industrial piercing, usually connected by a long straight barbell, but there are other possibilities. Some people use spiraled barbells or chains to connect their cartilage piercings. Many jewelry types also incorporate dangling gems or pendants.

Navel

Navel piercing is one of the most popular forms of piercings. Jewelry used for this type of piercing is often known as “belly rings” or “navel rings”, even though the most popular jewelry type for this type of piercing is not a ring but a curved barbell. There are many curved barbell designs to choose from, such as simple surgical steel barbells with spherical balls or more elaborate designs with pendants, gems and other ornaments.

Another popular type of jewelry for this type of piercing is the actual ring. Captive bead rings are popular, but their downside is that they can get caught on clothing. Therefore, they are recommended only for fully healed piercings.

Nose

Certain types of nose piercings are very common. Nostril piercing, for example, is among the most popular forms of piercing. It is a relatively simple piercing and jewelry types used for this piercing are simple but very effective. Many people choose simple studs and nose screws with bright gems on top for nostril piercings. A good thing about this type of piercing is that it can be very understated and easy to hide for work and other occasions: all you need to do is to choose a flesh-colored nose plug or stud. Some people prefer to wear nose rings instead of studs and screws.

Another popular type of nose piercing is septum piercing. It is a bit more complex type of piercing but it’s very effective. There are many different jewelry designs suitable for this type of piercing, such as rings and curved barbells. Depending on the style, a septum piercing jewelry can be simple or bold and more pronounced.

Eyebrow

Another popular piercing location is the eyebrow. Eyebrow piercing can look very beautiful and effective, but the downside is that eyebrow piercing tends to be very sensitive. Remember, eyebrow piercing is basically a surface piercing, which means there’s a relatively high risk of migration and rejection.

Also, this type of piercing has a high risk of becoming infected. For this reason, it’s important to choose jewelry carefully and with some consideration. Make sure to pick a body safe jewelry material and a jewelry suitable to be worn in an eyebrow piercing without a problem. Simple barbells look effective and they don’t pose much problems. Rings are another popular choice but you need to be careful not to make them caught on the clothing or hair.

Lips and Tongue

Titanium Micro Labret

Titanium Micro Labret

Many people choose to get their lips and tongue pierced. These piercings are very common but it’s important to be careful because of the sensitive tissue. Also, another risk associated with this type of piercings come from the fact lips and tongue regularly come in contact with food, so it’s another thing to keep in mind.

Generally speaking, lip piercings usually use labrets. This is a perfect jewelry type for this form of piercing. It’s effective but relatively simple and it doesn’t interfere with eating or brushing your teeth. However, labrets are not the only jewelry type used for lip piercings; many people prefer to use rings and other jewelry types.

Tongue piercing is more complex and the healing time is longer, so it requires special attention. Jewelry used for tongue piercing must be made of high-quality, body safe materials because it comes in contact with sensitive tissue.

Genital Piercing

While not as common as other type of body piercings, genital piercing has many proponents. Both men and women choose different types of genital piercings and jewelry types. As a general rule, jewelry worn in a genital piercing must be made of a high quality, body-safe material. Most jewelry types are relatively simple in design and have a smooth surface so they don’t pose a problem while walking or sitting. One advantage of genital piercing is that it can be used to enhance sexual pleasure for both partners.

Common Piercing Myths

Tongue Piercing There are some common piercing myths many people believe in. To enjoy your piercing, it’s important to know the truth and disregard these common misconceptions.

Some of the most common piercing myths include:

Nipple piercings prevent breast feeding. Nipple has numerous milk ducts and piercing damages only a few of them. In other words, you can easily breast feed with your nipple piercing. Warning: it’s strongly advisable to remove the jewelry during feeding so the baby won’t get hurt on the jewelry. Other than that, nipple piercings don’t prevent breast feeding.

Oral piercings always lead to infections. If your piercing is done by a professional, if you follow aftercare instructions and if you use body-safe jewelry, you won’t get an infection. Tongue and mouth are sensitive so they may be slightly irritated by certain food or beverages (such as alcohol), so this is why it’s not recommend to consume these foods or beverages during the healing process. However, it doesn’t mean that these piercings are prone to infection – it all depends on the aftercare. Most people never experience any problems.

Belly piercing is a problem during pregnancy. Pregnancy itself doesn’t affect your belly piercing. However, you need to think about the jewelry. Certain types of jewelry may cause discomfort during pregnancy or can’t be worn with a pregnant belly. This is why it’s important for all pregnant women to use special navel retainers or soft jewelry made for use during pregnancy. These jewelry types are soft and flexible, so they can be safely worn during pregnancy.

Multiple piercings can cause allergies. The allergies are caused by improper jewelry materials, so this is why all professional piercers and jewelry stores stick to body-safe materials only. Certain materials are safe to be used, such as titanium, niobium or high-quality surgical (not stainless) steel. Certain other materials, such as 14k nickel-free gold are also safe for most users. The number of piercings won’t cause the allergy, as long as the materials used are body-safe.

Piercing gun is a quick, safe way to get pierced. Piercing guns are damaging for your body and most professional piercers never use them. Piercing guns increase the chance for infection and damage the tissue, so it’s best to avoid them.

Body jewelry should be rotated during the healing process. This is an old myth, but it brings nothing good. You should not rotate your jewelry during the healing process. It will destroy the gentle healing tissue and actually put the dirt back in the piercing hole. The best aftercare is to clean your piercing with a saline solution and leave it alone. You should not touch your jewelry during healing, except to clean it.

Body jewelry sets off metal detectors. It depends on the jewelry used. There are many non-magnetic jewelry materials or jewelry not made of metal. These types of jewelry are safe to use with metal detectors.

Tongue piercing damages your taste buds. A tongue piercing won’t affect your ability to taste. Taste buds are numerous and they are constantly being replaced.

Vertical Labret Piercing

Vertical LabretVertical labret piercing is a popular and very effective piercing style. Unlike the most common labret piercing (positioned below the lower lip), a vertical labret goes through the lower lip itself, vertically. This piercing is actually parallel to the tissue inside the lip.

Benefits and Disadvantages

Vertical labret offers not just a different visual style than the regular labret piercing, but it also offers some advantages. It’s important to understand that a common labret piercing has a hole on the inside of the mouth. It means that the back of the jewelry sits near the gum line, so it can damage it. Another problem is that it can damage the teeth. With vertical labret piercing, no part of the jewelry sits inside your mouth. The barbell simply goes through the lip, from top to the bottom. It provides more comfort and less risk to any gum or teeth damage.

On the other hand, vertical labret piercing may take longer to heal. It also tends to be more sensitive and requires more aftercare. Some food can irritate the piercing so you need to be careful during the healing process. Once it’s healed, however, vertical labret piercing offers unique visual style and it poses less risk to your tissue.

The Procedure

Vertical labret piercing requires a pretty straightforward procedure and it typically doesn’t last long. Your lip will be marked and measured. A clamp will be used before the needle is inserted. The actual piercing is made using a needle and the whole process takes about five seconds so it’s over pretty quickly.

Typically, the piercing is done from bottom up, with a 16g needle. The pain depends on your tolerance level but is typically not that bad and it’s quickly over.

The most common jewelry used for vertical piercing is a barbell. It’s possible to choose between straight and curved barbells. Curved barbells tend to be more comfortable and easier to wear, especially during the healing process.

While vertical labret piercing procedure is not difficult and it doesn’t last long, one common problem is swelling. Be prepared for a lot of swelling after getting your piercing done. This is why most piercers recommend longer barbells for your initial piercing. The swelling should go after a few days, but you need to follow the aftercare instructions carefully.

Typically, the healing period takes 8 to 10 weeks. Make sure to clean your piercing several times a day. Sea salt solution works the best, or you may use a regular salt solution or a mild anti-bacterial soap. It’s important to touch your jewelry as little as possible: don’t turn it and don’t play with it. It’s best to touch it only while you’re cleaning your piercing and then leave it alone.

Jewelry

Since vertical labret piercing is not the most common piercing type, it’s not easy to find jewelry specially made for this type of piercing. Luckily, it’s perfectly comfortable to wear standard jewelry made for many different piercing types, so it’s not difficult to find suitable jewelry for your vertical labret.

Straight and curved barbells seem to work the best. There are many different styles to choose from: the simple and elegant barbells or the more elaborate styles. Most of the times, the lip jewelry tends to be simple but effective.

When choosing jewelry for yourself, keep in mind to shop at reliable stores; it’s important to use only high-quality, body-safe jewelry. Another thing to keep in mind is the barbell length- it will largely depend on your lip.

The Beauty of Nipple Shields

Heart Nipple Cover

Heart Nipple Cover

Nipple shields are very beautiful and popular among fans of nipple jewelry. These ornament pieces have a long history and they appear in numerous cultures across the globe. Modern nipple shields are popular with many body jewelry enthusiasts so there are many different types and styles to choose from.

The main purpose of a nipple shield is to highlight the nipple (in case of women, the whole breast, too) and to make it more aesthetically pleasing. Some nipple shields are specially designed to lift the nipple and keep it erect, which can be used for erotic purposes. A nipple shield will always encircle the nipple and cover the areola partially or fully.

Nipple shields serve several purposes: they ornament the nipple and are highly aesthetic, they provide nipple stimulation and they can make a part of a more complex nipple jewelry system (nipple piercing jewelry).

Common Types of Nipple Shields

Broadly speaking, there are two common types of nipple shields, depending on the way the jewelry is held against the nipple: nipple piercing shields and non-piercing shields. As their name suggests, nipple piercing shields are made for pierced nipples. These elaborate pieces of jewelry are constructed as a part of a piercing jewelry system or are made to connect to nipple piercing jewelry.

For example, a nipple shield can be made to encircle a nipple and to connect to a straight barbell that goes through the nipple piercing. This is the most common type of nipple shields made for pierced nipples. In these cases, a nipple shield can come attached to a straight barbell or it may be sold separately. These nipple shields are made in beautiful designs and often use materials different than pieces of jewelry that go through the nipple piercing. This way, it’s possible to achieve many different designs, styles and effects. Some nipple shields come with attached nipple chains or pendants. It all depends on the design. With so many different nipple jewelry styles, it’s possible to find the one that suits you.

Nipple shields made for non-pierced nipples are a bit different. While the designs themselves may be similar to those used for pierced nipples, the shield has to be stuck on a nipple by a different method. Usually, these methods include friction, suction or body-friendly glue. These types of nipple shields, however, are less popular than shields made for pierced nipples.

Styles

As mentioned above, there are many different styles as well as jewelry materials to choose from. When choosing a nipple shield, it’s important to take several things into account: your preferences, the occasion and materials. Your preferences will tell you what kind of style you like and which piece of jewelry you like the most. The intended occasion in which you’ll wear your nipple shield will dictate how large and elaborate a shield can be. Large, heavy shields and overly ornamental shields are not comfortable to be worn under heavy clothes, so it’s best to reserve them for special occasions when you expect your nipple shield to be seen.

Also, you may think about the function your nipple shield should have. Is there another reason to wear it, apart from anesthetics? You may wish to use your nipple shield as a sexual stimulant to massage and arouse your nipples. In these cases, a nipple shield can keep your nipples erect and provide erotic stimulation during sex.

Finally, the choice of materials is also important. It’s always crucial that you choose jewelry made of materials that are body safe. Since nipple shields don’t go through the piercing itself the allergies are less common. However, remember that the shield will touch sensitive parts of your skin so it has to be made of a material that’s safe for you to wear.
