A chin labret piercing is placed in the middle of the lower lip. It is also known as a centered labret piercing of the lower lip. It is the exact counterpart of the Medusa piercing on the upper lip. When both a Medusa and a chin labret piercing are worn at the same time, they are known as Cyber-Bites.
A chin labret piercing can take between 24 days and 2 months to heal completely, rarely longer.
This type of piercing can be seen as both an external and an oral piercing, and should be cared for accordingly.
Like other mucous membrane piercings, in the first three weeks it should be cleaned with ProntoLind spray twice a day, and then with a ProntoLind mouthwash.
It is important to wash your hands before touching the pierced area and the jewelry itself—the hands should be kept away from the mouth.
ProtoLind mouthspray tastes good and helps to freshen your breath. It is ideal for when you’re on the go and should be applied after every meal in order to disinfect and cleanse the piercing area.
Disinfectant solutions containing alcohol or chlorine should be avoided. Mouthwashes are no substitute for proper care and should therefore be avoided.
The right nutrition is vital for oral piercings, and you will find detailed information on this topic in the care and maintenance section.
As with the labret and Madonna piercings, this one uses a labret stud. An open stud or a captive bead ring are both great alternatives.
This piercing will have a different look depending on the jewelry chosen by the customer.
