Jestrum Piercing Jewellery

Jestrum Piercing Procedure
Ready to get a Jestrum piercing? Use our store locator to find your local Blue Banana Studio. There’s no need to book an appointment; you can simply go to the store of your choice and be pierced on the day.

Make sure to check the jestrum piercing age restriction before coming to store. It can help to avoid any undue disappointment. In a Blue Banana studio, the Jestrum piercing age restriction is 16 (ID may be required). Lip piercings are not available with parental consent.

Once you’re all booked in, you will have some forms to fill out. A member of Blue Banana staff will go through the steps and can help you pick out jewellery. Then you can meet the piercer! They too will give you a quick consultation and briefing before discussing the Jestrum piercing location.

Jestrum piercings are usually pierced with a curved barbell. Your piercer will pass a cannula needle through the piercing site and then insert the jewellery. It is important to get your Jestrum piercing done by a professional piercer as alignment in essential – the piercing needs to be in the centre to achieve the intended aesthetic effect.
Jestrum Piercing Aftercare Advice
A Jestrum piercing can take 2-3 months to fully heal. The exact healing time varies from person to person and will need top aftercare to ensure successful healing.

After the initial piercing, your lip is likely to swell and can be quite sore. During the healing process, you should avoid spicy food as this can cause your piercing wound to re-open. During healing, avoid smoking, alcohol, and kissing as this may introduce unwanted bacteria into your piercing wound. 

When cleaning your Jestrum piercing, use a saltwater solution or Tea Tree Oil to gently bathe the piercing twice a day.

Choosing Jestrum Piercing Jewellery

There are plenty of options when it comes to Jestrum piercing jewellery from Blue Banana. Some popular styles include:

  • Jestrum Piercing Barbell
  • Jestrum Piercing Jewellery

There are a range of colours and designs to choose from in our lip piercing jewellery range. When choosing your piercing jewellery there are a few things you should consider:

  • Jewellery Size – Make sure to find out from your piercer the size your Jestrum piercing jewellery should be.
  • Jewellery Material – piercing materials differ not only through their look but also how they could react to your skin. If you have sensitive skin that is prone to irritation, one of the many Titanium jewellery options is recommended. This material comes in a variety of colours and is durable too!

When searching for a piece of jewellery make sure you know your measurements.  We display the piercing jewellery measurements as Gauge first (displayed in millimetres) then Length, e.g. 1.2mm x 8mm.

  • Gauge – this is the thickness of the jewellery itself.
  • Length – the length of the piercing bar, usually not including the ball.

Make sure to check out the tips from our piercing guides for information about changing and removing piercing jewellery.
