    Default I took out my snakebites after a week.

    I've always wanted snakebites and I've had a Labret and side lip piercing in the past so I thought why not give it a try now seeing as it's been so long since I've had any piercings in that area!

    I got it done and it swelled like a mother ducker.
    I'm talking pete burns style swelling.
    My lips are quite full so I don't think that helped things.
    By day 7 they were still mega swollen, the bars were cutting in on the insides of my lip and they would just randomly bleed from the front.
    The right one was also irritating a sensitive tooth which I should of learnt from last time.

    Another detail that contributed to my decision to take them out was that they were very slightly uneven.
    I'm talking miniscule but it bugged me and i'm really obsessive about things being symmetrical (I've had all my ear piercings re done because they were a centimeter out of place!)

    So yeah.. I don't regret it, anyone else taken a piercing out that quickly for similar reasons?

    Took my vertical labret out after 18 hours. It was an impulsive piercing and while I really did love it, it interfered with more important things in my life and I definitely should have thought it through more carefully before getting it.

    My horizontal labret came out after 18 months and switched it to a vertical. Main reason was serious gum erosion.
    But when I got it done for a good week afterwards it was swelling, had to constantly use bonjella and I could feel it corroding my gum so much it bled. Looking back I should have taken it out, but I loved how it looked so much I left it in!
    Even after 18 months I still bit it and it annoyed me when I ate.
    They look awesome but.... noooo for me again!
