    Can I get my lip pierced with braces?
    My friend and I, were planning on getting our bottom lip pierced we promised each other we would get it done. We were planning this for a long time but then I got braces and I don't know if I can get it pierced,and I'm not getting it done in the middle I'm getting it done on the side. Will I be able to get it done so I don't break my promise. I really want it done?

    Yes you can, but I'd recommend that you wait until your braces are off. The combination of braces and a lip piercing can injure the piercing site, depending on which type of lip piercing, and can damage the braces themselves.

    Which sort of piercing did you want?

    How old are you? If you're a minor, who's doing the piercing? Have you talked to your parents about this?

    If you're paying for the braces, do you know how damaging mouth piercings can be to teeth? An expensive set of teeth like those corrected by braces may be too valuable to risk on a mouth piercing.

    Just some food for thought.

    I took a second look at your question, and I do not mean to offend you, however I think you should think a little more about getting this piercing. You will have that scar forever if you ever remove the piercing. That's a big deal. When getting any body modification, you should always think a lot about it. Weigh pros and cons. You shouldn't just get it because your friends are.

    I'm sorry but that is very immature thinking, I am not insulting you, just stating a fact.

    I do not believe you are mature enough to take care of a piercing, especially an oral piercing.

    Another word of advice, do not get a facial piercing unless you have a stable job that does not disapprove of them.

    You're parents are paying for your teeth already, yes?

    If this piercing does something to your teeth, you think they'll just pay to fix that as well?

    Have you discussed this with them? You should seek their consent, they are the people in your life that are always after your best interests and they are wise.

    I'm more mature than you think. I know that sounded stupid but it will just be a little scar you won't be able to see it I had my nose pierced before and I took good care of it and nothing went wrong until my sweater hooked the ring that was the only reason it came out an I'm pretty sure I can fallow the rules for an oral piercing and I had my ears pierced 2 times on each ear. Why would you think I was immature?

    I meant the comment about your parents just paying again.
    That shows immature thinking.
    Also, oral piercings are far different from any other piercing, especially ear.

    But back to the main question, it would not be a good idea to get a labret piercing while having bottom braces. Please wait.

    Yes my parents are paying for my braces, and I think they will pay for it to be fixed.
    I have discussed this with my parents I would never go off and get a piercing without there consent I'm not immature like most 14 year old not saying your calling me immature I'm just saying I would never do that.
