hey y'all, i'm new to the community, and i wanted to ask y'all a question.

i got my lip pierced a little longer than a month ago, almost a month and a half. i didn't really have many problems with it; i took Motrin all the time for swelling, washed it out with mouthwash everytime i ate, etc etc. it got a little dried-out looking around the outside sometimes, but i was working outside at a girl scout camp this summer, so i just figured it was from the heat or something. that got better, though.
i noticed, though, getting a little bit of tissue build-up on the inside of my mouth under the piercing about a week ago. i pulled it out, because it was sort of not attached? it didn't bleed, so i thought i was okay. i just started college and within the last week forgot to check up on that tissue build-up, and now i'm not sure i can pull it out this time without pulling actual mouth tissue, or something....
here's what it looks like...Collapse )
it's an annoying build-up and looks kind of weird? and i want to know how to get rid of it and how to stop it from growing back. any suggestions? please?

Almost three weeks ago I got the cartilage in my ear pierced. I've been doing a pretty good job of cleaning it, keeping my hair away from it, trying not to touch it too much or getting it bumped into, etc. But this morning in the shower I accidently caught it when I was running my fingers through my hair, and pulled it pretty hard. When I got out of the shower and started cleaning it, I noticed it was bleeding a tiny bit. Once I was done cleaning it I didn't see anymore blood, and I plan on bathing it in sea salt tonight, but should I be worried? Is there anything else I need to do? I really don't deter the healing process or, worse, get an infection. Thanks!

I Need Advice ... [28 May 2005|01:09am]

[ mood | confused ]

Okay, this is going to sound extremely lame, but what do all of your parents think of your labret piercings ?

I have a number of piercings and tattoos, but today when I mentioned to my mother that I was thinking about getting a labret done, she looked at me and said 'Don't you dare ! Don't you dare ! Your father and I have been pretty lenient on your piercings and tattoos, but DON'T YOU DARE.'

I'm over 18 and all, and I am 99% sure that I am going to get it done, but I am going to feel so bad when my parents see it and think 'Jeez, thanks for listening.'
They will be extremely pissed off.

I kind of just want to tell them that I am going to do it because I can and to just deal with it. But then again, they are very, very sweet parents that HAVE put up with a lot.

I am attending cosmetology school in June and I did call them to ask if facial piercings are allowed and they said 'of course' ... the only problem is that I work for my parents (they own a hotel, bar, and restaurant) and I cashier and host in the restaurant and I have a feeling that this piercing will have some effect on my job.
We have older customers, so I don't know how well they will take to a lip ring.

Gah ... I don't know what to do.

Any advice ? ? ?

I ventured into my piercers today as I had planned for a madison idea I wanted on my chest, using 2 surface barbells. My lovely piercer Tanya was happy to listen to my lovely ideas and oblige to pierce me as there was no reason for it not work.

The calmps were very painful, even moreso than my last madison. The needle wasn't so bad, yet getting the corners of the surface bar in was a bastard nightmare, pardon the french.

Onto the pictures anywho. The piercing is not wonky, even though it may look it in some photographs, also, the scars you see near the insides of the middle balls is the scarring from my old madison, not scaring/damage from this one.

Sorry about the bad photos, I will get some better ones when I can, also some submit-to-BME worthy.

And more piercy goodnessCollapse )

I am not sure which way around the picture is, but if you hadn't figured it out, both barbells go diagonally.
