I did my lips myself?!?!?

By Angela, from Savanna, Il.


Piercings are a great artform in todays society and most people leave it to the professonals but theres a few set of people that do it themselves!

And i am one of them i wanted to get my snakebites done so i first got a set of 14g horseshoe lip piercings and sterilized them then i got out my curved sowing needle and sterilized that and a 16g horsehoe to stretch the holes to make the 14g go in easier then i marked the holes with a permanent marker and used a ruler to makeshure they were exact length apart and madeshure it was an half of an inch away from my lip.

Then i pushed the sowing needle in going fast as to not prolonging the pain if u cant deal with pain al too much use ice or a toothache pain reliever to num your lip then after i got the sowing needle all the way in i pushed the 16g horseshoe in to stretch the hole and left it in for abt an hr then i pushed the 14g in and i did all this to the 2nd hole and once they were in i sterilized the holes and kept doing tht for abt 3 weeks makng shure i didnt get them infected this is not an impulse thing if you do it yourself u have to plan these things out or it will get infected if things are not planed out its a great piercing and i feel accomplished knowing i did it myself.

  1. There’s so much wrong with this.

    16g is smaller than 14g, it wouldn’t stretch anything. Even if you went from 16g to 14g, you would be dead stretching, which is the worst type of “stretching” there is.

    I’d like to know how you “sterilized” everything, since safety pins can’t be sterilized, and by “sterilize” you probably just mean you used a bit of rubbing alcohol.

    Have fun with the scars.
