Be a trendsetter this fall by following this fashionable and edgy fad. A medusa upper lip piercing sits just above the cupid’s bow of your lips, immediately drawing anyone’s attention right to the shape of your lips. This stylish new Philtrum Piercing trend is all the rage now. Gone are the times of simple lip rings. Philtrum piercing is one of the fastest growing trends in the piercing industry. Also known as the medusa piercing, it’s taking teenagers by storm. Not only does it look good, it is also capable of boosting your confidence and self-esteem. When you look good, you feel good.
Why Get a Medusa Piercing?
It’s a beautiful method that you can use in order to highlight the natural beauty of your facial features. While it looks cute and girly on its own, it can look quite edgy and Bohemian when combined with other piercings like eyebrow piercing, belly piercings or ear piercing.
Philtrum (Medusa) Piercing Healing Time
The upside is that it heals fast. It takes approximately four weeks to heal and varies from person to person. Like most piercings, the amount of pain experienced also varies greatly. Some people experience a lot of pain while others say that the philtrum piercing is less painful than some of the other piercings that they have.
While the pain is moderate, it isn’t the most painful piercing to get. It’s bearable and will be worth it in the end. Since the medusa piercing jewelry is situated on the mouth area, these areas tend to heal faster than other piercings. You should still take proper care of your piercing and keep it hygienic and clean. Pay attention to what you eat and avoid smoking for some time.
How Does It Look?
All that can usually be seen of the philtrum piercing jewelry is a small metal ball (tip of the labret stud going through the upper lip.) It is also possible to add something much fancier like a stud with an intricate design. However, if you want to keep it elegant, go for minimalistic jewelry. There are many trendy ways to show off this piercing. Check out the gallery to get a few ideas on how to ooze confidence while sporting this feisty trend.
Dazzle your friends with this fashionable trend. It looks amazing, is edgy and is taking the fashion world to a whole new level. If you love the medusa piercing so much, it is also possible to get a double Philtrum piercing – one on top of the other!
