a labret piercing
Its usually 16ga but some piercers don't go smaller than 14ga. You can either call your piercer and ask or just measure it yourself. 16ga is 1.2mm and 14ga is 1.6mm.
Yes a vertical labret is on the lip surface to the lip edge, a labret is on the lower lip below the lip edge so having the two should not be an issue.
well i have not had my lip pierced but i have had the Labret which is very close to the lip and i have my tongue pierced you cannot feel your tongue being pierced, but its almost immpossible to eat for about a week . The labret hurt like hell though.
Lips are pierced with barbells all the time, generally bent barbells for vertical labret piercings.
No. Vertical labrets don't touch the inside of your mouth at all. The holes wouldn't match up.
Yes it's called a vertical labret
Of course! You're originally pierced with labret studs to accommodate the swelling and to ensure that the piercing will stay straight, but after the initial healing time (6-8 weeks) you can change them to rings if you'd like. :)
For a short time after it's pierced, it might feel numb or tingly. It's not normal if you've had it pierced for quite awhile and it's still numb.
It really depend on where you get it pierced cause different place use different sizes unless if you want it to be a certain size. Typically a Monroe, Madonna or Medusa are all done with a 16g micro labret stud.
Labret is french for lip
