Whenever you go in for a Monroe piercing, the piercer will take a needle, usually either a 18-16 gauge, and pierce your lip with that. It doesn't leave a big hole at all. But, if you want to gauge your Monroe, then you could have the piercer pierce with a bigger gauged needle, or just gauge it out yourself.

Can you pierce your lip with a sewing needle?

You can but I suggest boiling it first or using a lighter to get all the germs off- also, you need to remember that a sewing needle is super skinny so unless you can find jewelry that's the same size of a sewing needle I wouldn't do it. I pierced my own lip before but it was with an actual piece of ear jewelry so I knew that it would be the gauge I wanted it to be- plus a sewing needle kind of hurts your finger when you're trying to push it through, so I'd also suggest putting an eraser on the end of it so it doesn't stab your finger. Sure you can if you want to get an infection. Boiling it doesn't do you any good. The water allows more bacteria to collect on the needle. Also, it only sanitizes the needle. Professionals use autoclaves which completely sterilize the needle. The sewing needle is way too small to have a comfortable transition between the needle and the jewelry. Fact of the matter is that you are not trained to pierce yourself. DON'T DO IT. Wearing ear jewelry in a lip piercing is a bad idea. The back of the earring will most likely become embedded in your lip. Save up the money to get it done by a pro. Just because some people are lucky enough to not get infections doesn't mean you'll be just as lucky.

Do you have to use a hollow tip to pierce your belly button?

Well all tri-beveled piercing needles are hollow. If you are asking more astutely if you can use a sewing You wouldn't be able to slide a 14g piece of jewelry after having pierced it with a more than likely 22 or 16g sewing needle, and then you would have to stretch the fresh piercing (which you don't do). Even if you were to find a needle of the same size as the jewelry, it can be quite tricky to transfer the needle out and the jewelry in when doing this. The hollow piercing needles work quite well for this, in that you can place the end of the jewelry in the divot, thereby making it go through quite easily.

What gauge needle to use for 14g belly ring?

You answered your own question. If the jewelry is 14ga, the needle should be 14ga too. I should say though, you don't want to pierce your bellybutton yourself.

It would be a better and safer idea to go a professional to get it done
