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!
It’s good to know what can go where in the piercing world, especially if you are new to it and unsure of the different types of face lip piercing available for example. The face lip piercing can be filled with studs, retainers, or rings and the great thing is that you can also use face lip piercing jewellery for various locations such as in the centre of the bottom lip, top lip and snakebites which are placed either side of the lip. Ball closure rings, circular barbells and labret stud can all be used in a face lip piercing, giving you plenty of choice.
Face Lip Piercing Lip Studs
The lip studs are great for piercing low down on the lip, as the design has a flat backplate which sits comfortably against the teeth and gums, this also prevents irritation and damage to the mouth. Lip studs come in various materials, so whether you like the look of gold plated or comfort of BioFlex you can pick and choose to suit your mood.

When you think of lip many people just think of labrets but side lip piercings are increasingly popular as an alternative piercing. Lip piercings can be placed almost anywhere around the lip and look great planed on the side of the upper or lower lip. When placed on the top lip, side lip piercings are called Monroe piercings or Madonna piercings, due to the fact that both women had a beauty mark on the side of their upper lip. Bottom side lip piercings do not really have a proper name, except if there is one on either side, which is referred to as â€œsnake bitesâ€.
Side Lip Piercing Rings
Rings are suitable for wear in any side lip piercing that is near the lip line but they are only usually worn in side lip piercings on the lower lip. Most people can wear a ring in the side lip piercing but it is important to get a ring that is the right size, or it might be uncomfortable to wear. To get the right size youâ€™ll need to measure the distance from your piercing to the top of your lip, and add a millimetre â€“ you will need a lip ring with the same internal diameter as this measurement.

Side Lip Piercing Studs
A lip stud is probably the most comfortable piece of jewellery that you can wear in a side lip piercing. These studs are available in a huge choice of styles, materials and sizes, so youâ€™re sure to find plenty you like. They are less likely to catch on clothing or cause damage to your mouth. Jewellery rubbing on the gums or teeth is always a risk with lip piercings. This can cause dental problems, so if you have any discomfort or notice gum recession we recommend switching to a Medilabs labret or a BioFlex labret stud. Both these studs are softer than a regular metal stud â€“ especially BioFlex studs â€“ so there is less chance of damage.
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.
are very popular and are located just below the lip piercing. A labret piercing is most commonly in the centre of the chin area, however, can also be pierced off-centre along the lower lip line. You can even have multiple labret piercings.
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.
