The Smiley piercing is aptly named. Indeed, it is on the small piece of skin connecting your superior lip to your higher gum, which is also called "Labial brake". This piercing is invisible until you smile. Smiley piercing is one of the most fashionable and original piercings of the moment and is suitable for women and men. The essential piercing to wear at the smiley is horse riding! But you can also wear a ring there.
It is important to clarify that not everyone can be pierced there, some people with a small brake for example. We advise you to request the advice directly from your piercer To find out if you can opt for the Smiley piercing.
Does the Smiley piercing hurts?
Whether at ear cartilage (Hélix, Tragus, Conch, ..), in the smiley or in the nose a piercing will be a minimum pain. However, we will never fold it enough, but the pain is specific to everyone. However, the Smiley piercing does not hurt that and is even one of those who are most bearable. The explanation is simple: the skin is quite fine at this place and there are few nerve endings, which makes it less painful than a cartilage piercing for example. But do not worry, The pain only lasts a few seconds! Compared to a ear piercing you won't feel it pass. So do not stress and offer a friend to accompany you if it can reassure you.
Print of the Smiley piercing
Your perceur will give you an antibacterial solution to rinse your mouth before drilling. The piercing is carried out with a sterile needle and the perceur systematically carries gloves. Finally, the pierter puts on the jewelry through the hole with a horseshoe or a ring according to your tastes.
If you want to combine the Medusa and Smiley piercing, do not forget to warn your piercing so that it can pierce in the best possible trajectory. Because the labret (bar) of the medusa would risk clinging to your horseshoe or ring at the smiley. We advise you to wait for the healing of one or the other so as not to hinder the second piercing.
What is the price of a smiley piercing?
It will take between 40 and 60 € for a smiley piercing, the price will often be the same as for other ear piercings. The price generally includes a classic installation jewel according to the piercing salons. We advise you to go to a pierceur that uses ASTM-F136 titanium jewelry for installation. You can also select a high -end gold jewelry that will start an additional cost during the drill. Know that we strongly do not recommend the so-called "surgical" steel which contains nickel, only the ASTM-F138 grade steel is considered to be implantable and can be used as an installation jewel, it still contains traces of nickel.
Maintenance and hygiene rules
You should never play with a piercing under healing, even less dirty hands. If you move the jewel too much, you may create lesions at your Labial brake and complicate healing. You must also be careful not to play with your jewelry with your language. We understand that it can be tempting, since you are not used to this new accessory, but you must leave your jewelry quiet during the healing period. Appropriate cleaning and care is essential for the right healing.
Here are some tips to apply:

We do not recommend:
- Touch the piercing or play with the jewelry

- Use mouths or toothpaste containing alcohol
