Most types of lip piercings don't actually pierce the lips themselves; instead, they're usually placed horizontally through the skin immediately above the upper lip or below the lower lip, with two exceptions: vertical labret piercings and lowbret piercings. Vertical labret piercings are placed vertically through the lower lip so that the top ball sits centrally atop the lower lip and the bottom ball sits centrally below the lower lip. Lowbret piercings are placed horizontally through the skin below the lower lip, but further down than most lower lip piercings--usually immediately above the point where the inner-lower lip meets the gum line. The other types of lip piercings from which you can choose include upper lip piercings, lower lip piercings, and "bites", which are pairs or sets of four lip piercings. If you just want one lip piercing, you might consider these options:Horizontal Lower Lip Piercing - A lip piercing that punctures the skin beneath the lower lip horizontally to the ground, so that one side of the jewelry is in the mouth and the other side is visible. Horizontal lip piercings are typically placed on the left or right side of the lower lip; when centered, they're called labret piercings. Captive rings, circular barbells, labret studs, and labret lip loops can all be worn in horizontal lower lip piercings.Labret Piercing - A horizontal lower lip piercing placed centrally beneath the lower lip. Labret studs are the most popular style of jewelry worn in labret piercings, but captive rings, circular barbells and lip loop labrets can also be worn in labret piercings. Those with stretched labret piercings can wear plugs, too.Medusa Piercing - A horizontal upper lip piercing placed through the central upper lip tissue, called the philtrum. Labret studs are the only ideal jewelry for Medusa piercings. Monroe Piercing - A horizontal upper lip piercing placed through the skin above the right or left side of the upper lip. Monroe piercings--which are also called Madonna piercings or Crawford piercings--get their name from the way they mimic these stars' upper lip moles. Labret studs are the best type of jewelry to wear in Monroe piercings. If you want your Monroe piercing to look like a mole, you can get a BioPlast labret stud with a flat, black end. Nearly all of the different types of lip bites piercings you can choose from are comprised of either two or four of the individual types of lip piercings detailed above. Bite piercing options include: Angel Bites - Angel bite piercings are actually a pair of Monroe piercings; one is placed through the skin above the upper lift to the right of the philtrum, and the other is placed to the left of the philtrum. Labret studs are the best type of jewelry for angel bites piercings. Canine Bites/Shark Bites - Canine bite piercings, also known as shark bite piercings, include two upper lip piercings and two lower lip piercings that are placed through the outer sides of the upper and lower lip in a rectangular pattern. Angel Bites and Labret Piercing | The four puncture points mimic the pattern a larger animal's bite would create, which is why this arrangement of lip piercings is known as either canine bites or shark bites. You can either wear labret studs in all four piercings, or use labret studs in the two upper lip piercings and hoops or circular barbells in the two lower lip piercings. Cyber Bites - When you get a Medusa piercing and a standard labret piercing simultaneously, this arrangement is known as cyber bites piercings. You can either wear labret studs in both piercings, or wear a labret stud in the upper lip piercing and a captive ring, circular barbell or lip loop labret in the lower lip piercing. Dolphin Bites - This arrangement is actually a pair of horizontal lower lip piercings placed closely together through the skin beneath the central lower lip. You can wear labret studs, circular barbells, captive rings, or labret lip loops in dolphin bites piercings. Joker Bites/Dahlia Bites - This is a pair of lip piercings placed through the skin to the right and left of the corners of the mouth. These bites get their name from the way they elongate a person's smile, making them look like the Joker from the Batman comics. The alternate name of Dahlia Bites comes from the Black Dahlia, in which the corners of the victim's mouth were cut. Although some people wear captive rings in joker bites, labret studs are really the most ideal jewelry for this type of lip piercing, because they're less likely to get in the way when you eat and talk. Snake Bites - This pair of horizontal lower lip piercings placed through the left and right sides of the lower lip gets its name from the way the two piercings mimic the bite marks a snake's fangs would make. You can wear labret studs, captive rings, circular barbells, or lip loop labrets in snake bites piercings. Viper Bites/Spider Bites - These are horizontal lower lip piercings placed closely together beneath the right or left side of the lower lip. These bites get their name from the way they mimic the smaller, tighter bite of either a spider or a viper. You can wear labret studs, circular barbells or captive rings comfortably in spider bites piercings.lip Rings,labret,labret jewelry,lip piercing jewelry,medusa,madonna,monroe,crawford,dahlia,labret piercing,snake bites,philtrum piercing,piercing labret,spider bites,shark bites,upper lip piercing,angel bites,body jewelry,dolphin bites,cyber bites, canine bitesRebel Bod has a wide selection of jewelry made from 316L surgical stainless steel, titanium, solid 14k gold, acrylic and BioFlex / Bioplast.
