It’s almost back to school time and for many BJS customers that means one thing – hiding your piercings! But never fear, here at BJS we have plenty of great piercing retainers to help you hold onto your piercings through term time. From clear piercings jewellery to safe metal-free studs, there are lots of options to suit you, your piercing and your school.
Over the next week I will be showing you which piercing retainers are the best for different types of piercings. Today I am focusing on lip piercing retainers. Lip piercings are very popular and they are banned in most schools. It’s easy to see why schools have such a problem with lip piercings – they are highly visible and literally in-your-face. Some schools have banned lip piercings all together while more moderate schools are happy as long as you use a discrete lip piercing retainer. Lip piercings are relatively difficult to hide but if you choose the right lip piercing retainer you can make your lip piercing very hard to spot.
Labret studs are designed to be worn in lip piercings but they can be worn in lots of other piercings as well. You can wear a labret stud in tragus piercings, ear lobe piercings, monroe piercings, helix piercings, auricle piercings conch piercings and many more! They are really comfortable to wear and jewelled labret studs are one of my favourite types of piercing jewellery.
Jewelled labret studs are a great way to update your look – they are cheap, comfy to wear and come in a great choice of colours and materials. I have a collection of at least 10 jewelled labret studs that I wear in my lip and ear cartilage piercings. They are especially good for ear cartilage piercings if you like to wear big headphones – the back plate doesn’t get pushed into your skin like a barbell ball can.
Steel Jewelled Labret Studs
Steel jewelled labret studs are great value. These labrets start from just Â£1.95, so you can always afford to update your look. Surgical steel is biocompatible and comfortable to wear. These jewelled steel labret studs are perfect when you want to show off your piercing or youâ€™re getting bored of the same old look. My favourite is a jewelled labret studs set on the left â€“ you get seven different colours for just Â£6.95 – one for every day of the week!
Whether you’ve got regular ear lobe piercings or an unusual ear cartilage piercing, there is a huge choice of ear piercing studs you can wear. Ear piercing studs are widely available in almost any design you can think of, so itâ€™s easy to update your look, add a little sparkle or make a statement. Because of the shape of your ear, there are lots of different types of stud you can wear in ear piercings, from cute ear studs to funky body piercing jewellery.
Classic Stud Earrings
Classic stud earrings are the most common type of ear piercing stud. They have a butterfly back and are usually a very small gauge – either 0.8mm, 1mm or 1.2mm. This type of earring is usually very cheap but beware of ear piercing studs that are made of cheap metals. Some high street ear studs contain nickel that can really irritate your ears. We recommend looking for silver or steel ear posts which are much more biocompatible. It is also recommended that you only wear these stud earrings in ear lobe piercings â€“ not cartilage piercings.

Labrets as Ear Piercing Studs
Although they were originally designed for lip piercings, labret studs make excellent ear piercing studs. The flat back plate of a labret sits neatly against the back of your ear and wonâ€™t poke your skin â€“ this makes them very comfy for sleeping in. They are suitable for both ear lobe and ear cartilage piercings. We recommend surgical steel, titanium or BioFlex labret studs for your ears. They are also perfect for giving your ear lobes a chance to recover from being irritated by cheap stud earrings.
A Labret piercing is located underneath the lowel lip,Â most often the placement of a labret piercing is in the centre of the face, between the chin and the lower lip line. Labret piercings do not have to be central and some people even have multiple labret piercings.
