Lip Studs

Picking Out Lip Studs & Rings
It is important to choose the right size and material for your piercing jewellery as your body may react differently to different materials. Getting the right size of labret stud is important for the health of your piercing.
  • Size: Lip studs and rings are measured by the length and gauge. The first number is the gauge (displayed in mm) and the second is the length or diameter e.g. 1.2 x 8mm. To measure the length of a lip stud, measure from one end of the bar to the other, without the add on balls.
  • Material: Choosing a high quality material such as titanium will provide you with a hypoallergenic material that is perfect for everyday use. Surgical steel is also a good choice for healed piercings as it is durable.
Most lip studs are internally threaded which means the screw is at the end of the add on ball and the hole is at the end of the bar.

Inserting/Removing Lip Studs
Before handling your piercing, always make sure to wash your hands with antibacterial soap. 

Changing a lip stud is a simple process that can be done at home but if you would like help, especially the first time, then it is best to visit a piercer.

It is important to be patient and not attempt to change your piercing jewellery before the wound is fully healed as this can cause complications. However, once it has healed you can start exploring your options. Your piercer will usually use a lip stud to perform the piercing which can then be changed to a lip ring once the piercing has healed.

To remove your lip stud, simply unscrew the ball on the end of the bar. You will then be able to remove the bar from your piercing and replace it with a new one. Gently move the labret stud through your piercing until you reach the end of the bar. If you find it hard to remove the ball then jewellery pliers can help.

When inserting your new labret stud make sure to push the bar gently through the piercing hole and keep going until it is in a suitable position. Always make sure to screw the ball tightly on the end.
