See the ball in the middle of the dude's chin? That's having your labret peirced, I believe.[/quote]

Thanks for the info. Now I can be hip and talk knowledgeably about labrets. I was just thinking about how double piercings were so edgy when I was young and now it's labrets (see how casually I slipped that into the conversation??). I've seen some really wild things like people forking their tongues. Soooooo, what is the *next* generation going to do to themselves to be edgier than their fuddy-duddy labret-piercing, tongue-forking parents??

Hehe, Amy I think you found BME, which is an extreme body modification site, they have some freeky looking pictures on there. I only have my nose done (on the side...no septum for me...my mother would kill me!) and my ears. Labrets are cool, but I'd advise you before you get it done to not take Asprin for at least a week...being a blood thinner I'm sure you can guess the results.

If and when you get older and decided that you've grown out of it, you're going be stuck with one NASTY looking scar
I am getting a SMALL guage (one step up from the smallest they can do) and I don't plan to expand it... so the scar won't be to bad. About the same as ears that have closed, maybe a bit smaller. my tattoos will be much more freaky and hard to explain to the grandkids

For anyone considering piercings, do NOT get them done with a gun. Have a REAL professional do it with a sterilized needle and cork. Never go to those earring places that have a "professional" to use a gun. They're not professionals. Being shown how to do it a couple of times, then being set on your own is not training. A real professional knows how to look for veins, skin types, etc. Also, those guns can carry diseases (which slip my mind at the moment - i think one is tuberculosis?). It costs more, of course, but this is a mutilation to your body.

Ah, good ol BME...how many hours have I spent looking through thee?

If you rub Vitamin E lotion, or even break down the capsules and rub it on the scar once you take it out and let it heal, it can reduce the appearance of the scar quite a bit.

And yes if you are going to get a piercing get it done at a proper place. Guns can't be sterilized, so essentally you're piercing yourself with the equal to a dirty safty pin, considering the earings they pierce you with with those guns are dull... (Side note, if you're pierced properly you should not have a lot of scar tissue, yes you will have some, but not as much as you would if you had it done with a gun)

Sorry, my rant of the day is over

To each his own ... but I don't get it.

I do have two earrings in each ear and would like to pierce my nose, but my dh would kill over...giggle ... I must save him from the shock...
