What Kind of Piercings use Labrets?
There are many different piercings that use labrets (labret studs). The most popular ones include lip piercings. These piercings are both oral and facial so the labret designs works great to protect the inside as well as the outside of the mouth. Other piercings that use labrets are some ear cartilage piercings and some nose piercings.
What is a Typical Labret Design?
Labret is also known as labret stud. This is a jewelry piece that has a straight shaft (rod). One end of the shaft has a bead, sometimes plain but more commonly with a gem or another decoration. The other side of the shaft has a flat end. This side goes inside of the mouth.
The Difference between Labret Piercing and Labret Studs
There is some confusion about labret studs and labret piercings, since both are commonly referred to as “labrets”. Labret studs are jewelry designs that are ideal for most lip piercings. Labret piercing is the most popular lip piercing: this is a centrally done piercing on the lower lip. This one uses labret studs as the main jewelry but many other lip piercings use these jewelry pieces as well.
