Does a Lip Piercing Harm Mouth Gums

Have you ever expressed interest in getting a lip piercing but were faced with comments about them destroying your teeth and gums? We’ve all heard it before, but is it actually true? And if it is true, are there ways to combat the effect lip piercings have on teeth? Keep reading to find out!

Gum Irritation and Recession

A lip piercing that has a bar or ring that constantly rubs against the gums can cause irritation and after a period of time wear.

Body Jewelry Piercing Sizes

Have you ever wondered about piercing jewelry sizes? Many piercings have “standard” sizes that they use for different kinds of piercings. For example, a nose piercing is usually much thinner than jewelry used in a lip piercing. Sometimes this is aesthetic, sometimes this is the safest size to pierce at to avoid the healing period going awry.

Of course, all jewelry and sizes vary depending on each individual’s anatomy and at the piercer’s discretion. Find out how to measure you own jewelry in this post here. Your piercer should take into account the placement of the piercing and your anatomy. But that doesn’t mean you can’t speak to your piercer about choosing another size. They may be able to accommodate you or explain why that size isn’t possible for you.

Let’s get into it!

What is a Corset Piercing?

7/31/2017 11:01 AM

Corset Piercing

A corset piercing is just a chain of surface piercings in at least two or more rows, laced together using a ribbon, chain or anther material that can be looped through a ring. It does not have to be in the shape of corset lacing as the name suggests, but is commonly so. This piercing can be done almost anywhere a surface piercing can be done, as long as there is enough space for the desired design.

Corset piercings are typically not a permanent piercing! Due to the strain that can be caused by consistently pulling on the skin by any threaded ribbon. Actually, ribbons should not be worn in a healing corset piercing at all! The pulling of the ribbons may put pressure or tension on a piercing that may cause it to migrate and not heal correctly.

Heartilage Piercing

A Heartilage piercing is a new ear piercing trend that started to gain traction this year in New York and has since spread worldwide through countless Instagram citing. It was named by the site Popsugar because essentially it's two side by side cartilage piercings connected by a ring that has been bent into the shape of a heart. We're in love with this earring trend and think it breathes new life into an old staple!

How Did it Gain It's Trending Status?
