Lip Piercing

The form of lip piercing and various body jewellery is hugely popular in the modern age. Although this art is considered a relatively new-wave trend, lip piercing and body decorating with jewellery have been around since the beginning of time. There are many locations that can be pierced in this area, including each side of the upper lip, one or both sides of the lower lip or a combination of both can be used for lip piercings, depending on what people require!

Anywhere you go, lip piercings can be seen on anyone ranging from the average person to the most famous celebrity. Getting any type of body piercing requires a person to have a certain disregard for the mundane and average. The type of person who gets this procedure done loves to find creative ways of self-expression. One of those ways is though lip piercings and the wearing of fashionable body jewellery.

Depending on what lip piercing you require, the procedure and cost will vary slightly, as will the type of jewellery you choose. Gold lip jewellery will cost more more than silver, titanium or surgical grade stainless steel. All of these factors affect the total price of lip piercings so make sure you ask about cost beforehand.

The best lip piercings are done safely in a reputable studio with a well-trained piercer who practices high standards of cleanliness throughout the whole process. The procedure for lip piercings typically follows these steps:
1, many studios will ask you to sign a consent form before any type of piercing. This should be no different with lip piercings.

2, Before the procedure begins, you will be asked to pick the jewellery you want. The piercer can recommend and assist you when choosing the correct jewellery for that particular type of piercing.

3, You must then choose and confirm where you want to get your lip pierced. Making a mistake at this stage can leave you regretting your decision so now is the time to make sure. The condition of the skin will be examined to make sure you are suitable for the procedure.

4, It is then likely you will be asked to disinfect your mouth by using a sterile mouthwash. The outside of your skin will be disinfected.

5, To ensure your lip piercings are done in the correct place, the piercer will mark the entrance and exit point of the puncture with a sterile, disposable marker before clamping the skin taut with sterile, surgical steel forceps. This procedure helps to hold the puncture sight in position and helps with pain control.

6, The lip will then be pierced with a sterile, unused needle. During withdrawal, a plastic sheath will temporarily remain inside the puncture until the selected jewellery is threaded through.

7, Once your lip piercings are complete, you should be given aftercare instructions to ensure the risk of infection and rejection is reduced.

Eyebrow Piercing

An eyebrow piercing is relatively common type of facial adornment in the western world. Like most surface piercings, it is contemporary in its origin. They tend to be safer then other forms because of the absence of excess irritation. However, makeup and beauty products applied near the eyebrow can sometimes cause an eyebrow piercing to become infected.

There are many types of jewellery used in an eyebrow piercing. The most common types include captive bead ring (BCR), barbells and curved barbells. Each of these types of jewellery put various amounts of pressure on the pierced area which can lead to migration and irritation in freshly pierced skin. Surface bars are fairly uncommon in an initial eyebrow piercing, although some may choose to use them.

Most people get eyebrow piercings in a distinct location. This usually at the outside corner of the eye and usually at a 40 degree angle. However, it is common for people to get their piercing anywhere above the eye to the edge of the eyebrow. An eyebrow piercing placed horizontally beyond the location above the eye can cause damage to sensitive nerves and should therefore be voided.

An eyebrow piercing takes some time to heal. When a person gets such a modification, he or she is looking at a healing time of 6-8 weeks. In some cases, it may take longer to heal from this type of piercing. They will only heal quickly, with few problems, if the proper care is applied. Once healed, a person can change his or her eyebrow piercing without much pain or discomfort.

After an eyebrow piercing heals, it can close within 48 hours of removing the jewellery. This is because the skin in the eyebrow is very thin. It's important to keep in mind that there are occasions where it may take longer than 48 hours for a piercing to heal. However, the length of time depends on many factors such as the length of time you have had the eyebrow  piercing, how quickly your body heals and how your body reacts to the removal of the jewellery.
