    Do you want to get it because the girl wants you to get it, or because YOU want to get it? If it's the former, not worth it, IMHO.

    She wants you to get it, it's not her choice, your body. Lip rings aren't the nicest piercings, you could get an infection at first and have a swelled lip for a few weeks. Plus everybody has them, even though I wouldn't get a piercing and am more of a tattoo guy, if your going to get one then get a nose ring, looks cooler IMO.

    I never quite got the lip ring... one of the uglier ones in my opinion... had the nose, eyebrow, the nip.... the nip is the only one left... get it if you want it though and if it gets you some bonus poon then even more reason to do it... ;)
  6. Get your balls pierced. Lip rings suck.

    for the longest time i wanted a lip ring (or two :rolleyes:). but then i started biting through my lip in my sleep, and i'd have painful 'sores' for weeks, and considering that's all a lip piercing is (without the biting), i decided it's not worth it. you can get a lot more infections from a lip ring than from say a bellybutton/eyebrow/whatever is being done these days (unless you maintain very good hygiene for the time that the 'wound' is still open).

    but then again, i'm only 16 and lazy.:p

    I wouldn't get it. Piercings look gross to me

    Plus it can get infected badly, which I've seen happen around here
  9. Don't do it... you're not badass enough to pull it off.

    Eyebrow is way over done IMO, nothing special.

    Do the lip. they tend to heal in faster and less rejection than with eyebrows in my experience. I've had both several times and prefer the lip and never had the excess of infections that was mentioned... you need to be more carefull with them for a week or two, but the overall healing was easier than an eyebrow.

    He's just looking out for you, man. Do you want to get something that you can't pull off because you aren't badass enough? Do you realize how terrible that would be?

    And my opinion is, no. You shouldn't. Because lip rings are nothing special, and I've seen very few people pull it off. I also wouldn't go for the eyebrow or the nose. All over done. Now, if you did all three, and had a chain running from each, then you'd look so ridiculous it'd be kinda cool.
  14. Has the ship sailed on the balls idea?

    I would crown you a pure badass if you got the twins sliced. :D

    First comes the lip ring
    Then comes the ear spacers
    Then comes the dyed hair
    Then comes the constant whining because "The Government is out to get you".

    Don't do it.
  16. My opinion? I'm not a big fan of piercings, even on girls. I mean other than the usual ear piercings, but those don't even really do anything for me. I'm really not a fan of piercings on guys. If I ever get anything it will be a tattoo.

    It's all WAY too cliche at this point. Really wanna stand out? Don't get anything pierced and don't get any tattoos. Then, you won't look like a trendoid fashion victim.
  18. I would rather see young people get piercings than tattoos. Tats require a lot of thought and are permenant. I cringe when I see people in their teens with neck tats. I have lots of ink but didn't get started until I was in my 30s. Piercings will always close up, unless you get HUGE ones.

    Go for the lip dude!! Just remember to take it out for job interviews, etc. :D
