    Default Stretched Labret

    Im seriously considering stretching my centre labret piercing. It seems alot more radical than my stretched lobes that are now at 22mm, so I'd like to know if as like ear lobe stretching, theres a point where I'd still be able to retire it or at least downsize back to around it's original size(1.6)?

    Ive 2 holes in my lip at present, one from a 3.2mm vert labret, and the other from a 4mm left side lip piercing, i currently have a 3.2mm right lip.

    The holes do close, but, they scar - badly.

    I think with lip being such a visible piercing, stretching it really has to be something you're going to stick with unless you want to take a huge risk. With lobes there is a supposed point of no return, but it's not true to everybody, so it's always possible that your lip may not shrink back either - but it might.

    If you're sure you want it though, go for it, stretched lip piercings look amazing.

    I wouldn't do it if you think it'll only be a temporary thing. It's just not worth the risk.
