in the end i want a ring in but is it better to have a stud put in first cos of swelling and stuff ?
A "stud" is usually the word used to describe earlobe jewellery with the butterfly backing. The usual jewellery for lip piercings are labret studs which are barbells but with flat backs. If this doesn't make sense to you, please please do your research before you go getting piercings!
I would use a ring. The studs imprint on your lip, so as its healing it might make it sore. Your lip will puss as its healing and a ring will be easier to clean the puss, crust, and in general. In my opinion, rings are better for healing. Long studs used at first are ugly anyway.
No, it's always best to get a barbell first for healing. Rings, or BCRs, move around a lot which isn't good for a healing piercing.
It actually shouldn't puss as it's healing...
is a barbell like a stud ?
