Left is loose, right is tight. A pair of latex or nitrile gloves helps with slippy fingers. Remember the classic "Righty Tighty, Lefty Loosy". If you want to loosen something, you want to spin it counter clockwise if you are looking at that piercing directly from the front. If you are loosening your own, since you are facing the back, turn it clockwise, or to the right.

What is the piercing called where its below your lip and its to the side but its not called a lowbret piercing picture please?

labret is the only one i can think of, snake bites if they're done on either side. unless you're refering to a monroe, (left upper lip) or madonna (right upper lip) or "angel bites" for both. i hope this helps Edit: Snakebites: When you have one piercing either side of the bottom of your lip. Angelbites: When you have one piercing either side of the top of your lip. One above your lip in the middle is a madonna. One above your lip to the side is a monroe. One in the middle at the bottom is a labret. Two on one side at the bottom of the lip is called a spiderbite. One to the side at the bottom of your lip is just a lip piercing i guess. (:

If you are using the correct type of piercing equipment, you should not have to numb your tongue at all. Numbing the area before piercing could affect the healing process, and leave more opportunity to become infected. It is best to get a piercing done professionally, but if you are piercing at home, be sure to use the right sterile needles and tools. There should be little to no pain, making numbing unnecessary.
