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 haven’t already had your philtrum piercing completed then you might like to know that it feels like you’ve just had a good whack on the nose, and your eyes will probably water too!
A Medusa Piercing Is A Great Labret StyleThere 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 doesn’t suit it.
