It's Snakebites my son, go for it, but my advice to you would be make sure you research it, and get it pierced with studs and have rings put in later.

Snakebites

Do they let you do both sides at once? I was under the impression they didnt. Only because I don't know anyone whos had them done both at once though.

They do let you do both at once, but obviously it's not recommended, and that's word i've had from piercers and people who've had it done and not been able to eat properly for days.

Nooooo.... don't do it yourself


You could hit a nerve and it could be really painful. It's not like ear piercing, there's a lot that can go wrong if you try and do your lip yourself.

For the record, cockney way of speaking

Do it yourself? Sure, if you want to wreck your face.

It's a huge NO with snakebites, no only will you end up with a problematic piercing, it'll also be wonky, and after all, the point of snakebites is them being level.

If you listen to one thing, do not do it yourself.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg, so, so many things can go wrong with self piercing, on the ears it's alright, it'll be acceptable, but on your face the risks are huge.

if you hit a nerve it'll f*cking hurt, and possibly numb part of your face forever.

Get a fake id or charm a piercer into doing it. Cos seriously, it can fuck up. The labret guy was probably just lucky.


Though to be fair, it was the body mod thread on UG that talked me out of piercing my lip myself

Laberts are the same, your friend is an idiot.

There wouldn't be much point doing at 14 anyway, you'd have to take it out for school and the like, save facial piercings for college.

If you hit a nerve, the worst you're asking for is paraylisis. If you hit a vein you're looking a big mess, and that's not too unlikely.

I think it looks cool to have two piercings on the same side. I knew a girl with that and it looked pretty decent, she didn't even have a massive mouth. I suppose there is the danger of them ripping into one massive piercing though...

I might actually get a (much) smaller gauge one put in right next to mine... if anyone's seen Paul Gray's lip piercings, they'll see what I mean

I understand where you're coming from, I was there once, but honestly, save the facial piercings until your 16, you could get it done with parental consent, but even if your knocking out A*s, i'd be surprised if your parents let you get it done.

Wait until you're old enough, it's worth the wait. And it does sound like a good set of piercings you've got planned, but make sure you get them done professionally and when you're old enough.

M_I: Yep, that is a danger, but unless you stretch them it's very unlikely it would actually happen

I think that's what she had.

Anyway, I have 3 ear piercings in a row and I don't worry about them forming one massive piercing


And I don't know if glueing your fingers together counts as body modification or stupidity, but this is so gross I had to share it...

Someone, somewhere is going to read that and glue their fingers together with industrial strength adhesive, get in Bizarre and then have a shit life.

And then we'll blame you.

I'm tempted to get my tragus done, but is it a problem for listening to music through headphones?
That's the last thing I want.

Also, first tattoo question; I'm considering getting wings on my back (not amazingly original, I know) but my mum reckons it's a bad idea to "get your first tattoo on your back as it'll kill", is that true or not?

They stretch it over time, although sometimes you can get parts of your ears like...removed for them to fit.
