Ear Scalpelling is one of the most controversial body modification procedures. The piercer makes a small scalpel cut outward from an existing earlobe piercing to enlarge a piercing very quickly. This takes the wait out of stretching. Scalpelling is often done by a piercing professional at a standard Tattoo/Piercing shop and requires consultation for pricing and jewelry choices. Below is a freshly cut and stitched up lobe:
Since this is a more invasive procedure, listening to your piercing professional aftercare instructions are very important. Scapelling is not recommended by doctors however, it is still taking the piercing world by storm as the fastest way to get those glorious larger plugs and tunnels in your lobes.

The best ways to show off your perfect bout besides lipsticks, are lip piercings. Lip piercings have been around for ages and mainly started within South American and African cultures. This practice often used a plate inserted into a widely stretched hole at the bottom of the lower lip (Ouch.) symbolizing fertility and maturity.
With the evolution of this fashion staple, you now have multiple options to decorate your piehole, no stretching required. Unless you want! 😀 Here’s a chart to show you the way:
Labrets, Monroe and Medusa piercings are by far the most popular. Labret is a stud that sits under the bottom of your lower lip. The Monroe sits at the top where Marilyn Monroe’s beauty mark was located (hence, the name) and the Medusa sits right in your cupid’s bow.
Vertical Labret piercings are on the rise to popularity involving a curved barbell that goes through your bottom lip. Often the same barbell used for the eyebrow ring.
Snake, Spider, Angel, Cyber, Dolphin, Dahlia, Canine and Shark bites all involve multiple piercings around the lips accentuating your mouth’s beauty from all angles.
