lilfry10 asked: You may get this a lot, but I'm interested in stretching my labret. But I've been doing my research before I fully decide to do it. My first question is do you notice any gym recession? Of so, what type of jewelry do you notice it more with? And lastly did you stretch yours to 11mm, or did you scalpel or punch method? And in your opinion which is better? Sorry for all the questions, like I said I just want to do my research. Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks again!:)
Well you’re definitely starting out right. Research as much as you can before you make any commitments :)
Personally, I have not experienced any gum erosion or even minor irritation. I know this can vary a hell of a lot between different people and I’m one of the lucky ones!
I have always worn oval jewellery, and I notice no difference in comfort between my stone or delrin pieces. In fact, I barely notice my jewellery at all :)
I had my labret scalpelled straight to 9mm, and after 18 months I stretched it a further 2mm to my goal size of 11mm (7/16). If you’re worried about gum erosion, my advice would be to stretch your labret slowly so that you can gradually adjust to larger jewellery. I’d always recommend scalpel over punch :)
Hope that helps!
americanlass asked: Hiya :). I'm curious, what size is you labret at? You are beautiful and I love you blog :).
My labret is at 11mm which is my goal size :)
medisonman asked: Do you ever model?
To be honest, no one has ever approached me regarding modelling and I’ve never been confident to seek anything out! But it’s a compliment that you’d even ask!
La Dispute (via whateven-areyou)
It’s strange for me to read these lyrics. They used to mean so much so me. I used to listen to this song so much because it was comforting to hear someone else’s voice reading my mind, during a period of my life that was so suffocating and grey.
But now everything is yellow and orange and gold and warm, and I’m so happy and comfortable and secure.
I feel strong because I overcame my own mind.
