A side lip piercing is a labret piercing placed towards the left or right side of the lip. The term "side lip piercing" usually refers to piercings on the lower lip - upper side lip piercings are called Madonna or Monroe piercings.
Labret studs, BCRs and circular barbells can be worn in your side lip piercing. In terms of healing and care, side lip piercings are very similar to labret piercings. There is a risk of tooth and gum damage due to jewellery rubbing against teeth and gums. This damage can be permanent so it is vital that you consult a professional piercer in the event of any change to the area. This damage can be avoided by wearing a soft Bioplast labret stud. The outside of the piercing should be cleaned daily with saline solution. Rinse with suitable mouthwash twice daily and after eating. Avoid alcohol and smoking until fully healed.
Side Lip Piercing Healing Time: 4 to 12 weeks
