Be a trendsetter this fall by following this trendy and edgy fad. A Medusa upper lip piercing sits just above the Cupid’s arch of your lips and instantly draws everyone’s attention to the shape of your lips. This stylish new Philtrum piercing trend is all the rage right now. Gone are the days of simple lip rings. Philtrum piercing is one of the fastest growing trends in the piercing industry. Also known as medusa piercing, it is taking teenagers by storm. Not only does it look great, it can also boost your confidence and self-esteem. When you look good, you feel good.
Why get a Medusa piercing?
It’s a lovely way to bring out the natural beauty of your facial features. While it looks cute and girly on its own, it can look pretty edgy and bohemian when paired with other piercings like an eyebrow piercing, belly piercing, or ear piercing.
Philtrum (Medusa) piercing healing time
The advantage is that it heals quickly. Healing takes about four weeks and varies from person to person. As with most piercings, the level of pain varies greatly. Some people are in great pain while others say the philtrum piercing is less painful than some of the other piercings they have.
While the pain is moderate, getting a piercing isn’t the most painful. It’s bearable and will be worth it in the end. Because the Medusa piercing jewelry is in the mouth area, these areas tend to heal faster than other piercings. You should still take good care of your piercing and keep it hygienic and clean. Be careful what you eat and avoid smoking for some time.
How does it look like?
All that can usually be seen of the philtrum piercing jewelry is a small metal ball (the tip of the labret stud goes through the upper lip). It’s also possible to add something much fancier, like a stud with an intricate design. However, if you want to keep it elegant, go for minimalist jewelry. There are many trendy ways to show off this piercing. Check out the gallery for a few ideas on how to exude confidence while following this lively trend.
