Also referred to as tongue pillar piercings or soul patch piercings, labrets are a subtle, yet appealing way to add some neat jewelry to your lower lip. Fortunately for those new to the piercing world, labrets are not too painful and usually only small studs are used, making the entire process quick and easy. However, regardless of the underlying simplicity that comes with these piercings, many people have gotten creative with them, and some have even gone as far as to attach them with other rings on their cheeks and ears. Although that may sound rather ridiculous to some people, it is not even the most extreme example, and many are (surprisingly enough) far more intense. So, in order to properly display some of these extremely creative examples, while also catering to the folks interested in standard labrets, we have created the very versatile list below.
Ranging from simple, standard “above the chin” piercings, to ideas that would make anyone’s jaw drop, here is our list of 12 neat labret piercings!
1. An Open Lower Lip Labret Piercing

Appearing almost as a small mirror next to two solid black studs, this piercing sticks out well, and (due to it’s body shape) is defined as a “scalpelled” labret.
