I want to get one but my dad would kill me if he saw it. I'll probably see if I can get a glass retainer put in, but my cousin suggested getting a real one and taking the little balls off the end when my dad's around, but will that actually work? Bored Again, don't make false assumptions and try to belittle people just because you have nothing more fulfilling to do with your life. You have absolutely no idea what my situation is, you have no authority to judge. Retainers are not invisible and taking the balls off just increases the risk that it will fall out.
The Vertical Labret Piercing: Everything You Need to Know
How to Hide a Lip Piercing from Parents or Bosses: 14 Steps
While the labret piercing consists of a single puncture through the skin directly below the lip, the vertical labret piercing is made of two punctures that go through the lip itself and exit below the lip where a labret piercing would be placed. Perhaps the most unique aspect of the vertical labret piercing is that it never touches the inside of the mouth. If you have oral issues such as a receding gum line or enamel wear, then this might be the lip piercing for you. The vertical labret piercing is also perfect for those who want a stunning style that stands out. Since the vertical labret piercing has two puncture points that go directly through the sensitive lip skin, this piercing is slightly more painful than other lip piercing types.
Once the piercing is healed, retainers are the best option. Septums on the other hand, can be pierced with a retainer so that hiding them is incredibly easy and safe. The retainer, made of surgical grade stainless steel, 14 karot gold, or titanium, can be flipped up inside the nostrils and noone will ever know! Plus, once the piercing is healed, all kinds of cool and colorful retainers are available made of acrylic, metal, and glass. Piercings done anywhere around the lip are some of the hardest to hide, because your mouth is constantly moving, but removing a ball or tip, especially in a new piercing, and allowing the barbell to slip under the skin surface is a major no-no!
