    When you first get a lip piercing you should never start out with hoops. Hoops are (obviously) curved, so your hole will heal along with the shape of the hoop. Which isn't a good thing. So, you want to start out with a stud, definitely. That way you know the hole is going to heal straight, and once it's healed completely and you feel like changing it to a hoop, you can do that without worrying about the hole.

    I think either would look good but I agree, it's much better to heal with a bar than a ring. Rings move around a lot, especially in something like a lip that moves a lot in the first place. A labret will be more likely to stay put. Just make sure you get it downsized to a shorter one after the swelling goes down or it will be too long.

    ^ Actually the reason rings are rubbish is that they can spin/twist, dragging crusties through the fistula and generally irritating it which delays healing. Saying that, some people can get on fine with rings but I'd err on the side of caution.

    I think it would look good, but I'd agree, get a stud for initial healing.
