Medusa Piercing

Location: Infranasal Depression
Jewellery: Labret Stud
Healing: 6 to 8 weeks or longer

A medusa piercing is often seen as a mirror reflection of the labret piercing, whereby the philtrum is pierced below the nose, allowing for body jewellery to sit in the area above the top lip. Also known as a philtrum piercing, this is both a lip piercing and an oral piercing, meaning that it requires twice as much care an attention as a cartilage or flesh piercing.

Without Medusa Studs Your Piercing Wil...

One of the most expressive and a rarer type of labret piercing, the medusa piercing is one which is placed in the centre of the natural divot between your mouth and nose, which is technically known as the infranasal depression. Sometimes known as the philtrum piercing, it is often worn in conjunction with other lip piercings. Depending on your anatomy and your preference, you might be able to move a medusa piercing closer to your lip, nearer to your nose, or exactly in the middle of the two. If you havenít already had your philtrum piercing completed then you might like to know that it feels like youíve just had a good whack on the nose, and your eyes will probably water too!

A Medusa Piercing Is A Great Labret Style

There are different types of jewellery that you can wear in a medusa piercing, however the most popular is a labret stud, which is also the safest and most comfortable option. While some people do wear a ring after healing, it may not be a comfortable option for everybody, especially if your anatomy doesnít suit it.
