Labret Studs

Sizes for Labret Piercings

It is very important to get the sizes right for labret piercings, especially if you are wearing it in the lip. You do not want it to be too long, as it may become a nuisance in your mouth, and even get bitten on occasion. Make sure you know your jewellery sizes. If you need a hand with measurements you can check out our piercing sizes guide.

Benefits of Bioflex

Bioflex is an increasingly popular material in labret studs. Its flexibility is ideal for piercings such as the lip, where there is a lot of movement. It is also suitable for anyone with a metal allergy, and softer than metal so it won’t damage your teeth if it is a lip piercing. For a complete detailed account on bioflex, you can check out our materials page.


Nose

It might be a bit trickier to insert, but smaller labrets make a good nose piercing.

Conch

If you get a longer labret stud, it can be suitable as a conch piercing, as long as it’s not too tight.

Tragus

The flat back of labret studs makes them particularly comfortable for tragus piercings as they won’t get in the way of earphones or hats.

Lobe

Again, the flat back is actually very comfortable compared to the usual bulky back studs of an earring.

Helix

Finally, the flat back is again the reason labrets can be a great helix piercing. The piercing won’t dig into the side of your head like bulkier jewellery.

Aftercare

It doesn’t matter what kind of piercing you get, you must take proper care of your labret piercing wherever it is. This is especially important if you are trying a new material such as surgical steel.
