Traditional Piercing

1. Monroe



Generally, a black barbell is on the upper left lip as if it is a birth mark. It is better only for those with thick lips. It is named after Marilyn Monroe who did it to represent her late sister's birthmark.


2. Madonna



Madonna lip piercing is the exact opposite of Monroe where the barbell is placed to the upper lips at the left side. The famous singer Madonna made it popular. 


3. Medusa



This is another popular lip piercing where the barbell is placed at the center of the upper lip. A centered nose piece jewelry above it goes well with this piercing. 


4. Jestrum 


It is a modification of Medusa where one more additional barbell is placed at the center of the top lip. Sometimes, a long circular bar with two barbells at the opposite ends is used instead of two separate barbells. 

5. Centered Labret 



The barbell is placed just below the lower lip and exactly in the center position. It adds elegance, style and acts as a boost for confidence. This is the most preferred lip piercing type.


6. Vertical Labret



Along with a barbell at the center of the area just below the lower lip, a barbell is also placed on the bottom lip just above and centered labret. It is best for a sharply pointed chin. 


7. Horizontal Labret

Bite Piercing

8. Dahlia Bite

Two rings are used for getting snake bite piercing. The circular rings have two studs on both the side that protrude out of the bottom lip and the ring is pierced from inside. Alternately, studs can also be used.

11. Angel Bite



It is same as snake bite, but it is done on the upper lip. It looks great with a nose piece ring.


12. Dolphin Bite


Dolphin bite is designed for males, and it consists of two black or stainless steel studs in the middle of the chin end and lower lip. It looks good when you keep shades of beard around it.
