Gone Wrong To Right

Lip Piercing Story

I was sitting in class one day and I’ve had my lip done before but it was done wrong because I did it myself so I took it out. Anyways and I thought to myself going to pierce my lip again but this time actually right.

So I went home and stuck a 14g sewing needle not to mention dull as hell into my lip. It was all fine until I couldn’t get the stud through – I got it mostly through but it wouldn’t go through the last couple layers of skin on the outside.

So I started picking at it with a sharper needle to pick it through so I basically dug a whole in my face so the labret stub would go through. I have my navel and nose pierced too but I got my navel professionally and my nose myself again….

It’s been about a week and my lip stop swelling and it’s just scabbing around the ring…but during school at lunch I was eating a wrap – this was the day after I pierced it – and my lip puffed up so much that it was hurting because my stud wasn’t long enough for it to heal in.

So me and my friend went to the bathroom and she also had her lip done but it’s healed and she took out my stud and harshly shoved the hoop she had in through my lip.

It swelling even more for like three days and now it’s fine and look awesome and I plan to pierce the other side for snake bites! 😉

Body Piercing Story - Lip Piercing

Riding down the road minding my own business and this guy in a grey truck is like right behind me.

Mind you I am a beginner skater so, I tried to jump off to get out the road, so I wouldn’t die.

So I get unsquared and I jump off on the fastest part of the hillish type thing.

I fall directly on my face, I remember the sound of my head bouncing off the pavement. I don’t think I will ever forget that sound. I get up and my friend is laughing a lot, he say the whole thing..

His laughter stopped once he say my face. The left side of my face was covered in blood, I mean covered. I busted open my eyebrow, made my nose bleed, mess up my shoulder and have a hole in my lip.

I’ve wanted my lip pierced for as long as I could remember, so my brother convinced my mom to let me have it done if I did all by myself. Well, I did. It hurt really bad, but I wanted it done so I did. And yeahhh… That’s my story.
