This is similar to the vertical labret, but runs through the upper lip instead. The entry point of the piercing is the groove where the Medusa piercing is placed; the exit is in the middle of the upper lip. This piercing can also be done off-center, that is, not in the middle of the upper lip.

Most customers, however, opt for the middle of the upper lip for this form of piercing.

Depending on the customer’s lip shape, the piercing may not be worth doing at all.

Healing and care:

A justrum 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.

Jewelry:

This piercing uses sterilized titanium banana barbells which can be made longer or shorter depending on the customer’s preference. The balls can have a diameter ranging between 2.5-4.0mm.
