Monroe piercing started developing a small bump right on it?
ANSWER #4 of 13

You can not paralyze your face by piercing it wrong.
The only chance of anything going wrong is if you pierce it without considering the alignment of your teeth it can screw up your gums and teeth.
It's safe if you have the right things. Do not attempt to do it with a safety pin, be smart about it. Even have someone hold the clamp for you just so you have more control over the needle. Be sure to clean it and take good care of it, and everything should go smoothly. Also, its best if you use a hollow needle which gauge is bigger then the jewelery so it can fit in the end and slid in perfectly.

Be safe. I hope it turns out well.

What ear is the straight ear to pierce?
ANSWER #6 of 13

I pierced my lip twice...
and my nose
and my bellybutton...
fine everytime
just make sure you do it yourself
dont use anybody else's jewllery!
use an old earring or something
and then leave the earring in for a few days then put yourself in a lip labret and it should be fine.
however if it gets really infected keep cleaning and wait a week or so... if this continues or gets worse then just remove it and wait awhile before you try to re-pierce.
hope this was helpful.

Nipple piercings on small breasts?

lips (and that area) are more sensetive so I wouldn't recommend it. snakebites/venoms/monroes/lip piercings are more lkely to get infected. if you clean EVERYTHING really well and know what you r doing I guess you might as well go for it tho.
