The idea behind threadless jewelry is that the “screw” or threading of a barbell doesn’t go through the piercing. … You only need one labret post to fit multiple different threadless ends!
In this way, how do you remove a threadless labret?
To remove your threadless style jewellery yourself hold the back disc with one hand, hold the front with your other hand and pull the two pieces apart. Make sure you’ve got a good grip on both pieces and don’t do it over your bathroom sink unless you’ve put the plug in first!
Likewise, can I use labret as earring?
Because labrets are made for lip piercings, wearing them as earring studs means you’re limited to designs that are meant for your lip. … So, naturally, labrets are not usually available in those designs.
Why is internally threaded better?
Internally threaded jewelry avoids any risk of scraping your skin with sharp threads, which is especially important with new piercings. They pass through the piercing smoothly without irritating it or aggravating the pain.
Threadless jewelry uses tension between the end and the post to stay together. How does it stay together? The removable end has a small insertion pin (see picture above), which is slightly curved on all straight-shaft threadless jewelry, or unbent on all curved-shaft threadless jewelry.
To remove your flat back earrings, hold the post (the back of the earring) with one hand and then gently unscrew the front piece from the post. Once the front piece is loose, gently pull it away from the post. Screw the front back into the post when you’re not wearing it to prevent damage to the threading.
Can you use a piercing gun to pierce your nose? Piercing guns are not designed to pierce noses. Not only are needles much safer, they’re also cleaner, more accurate, and less painful.
Labret studs have a flat back plate on one end and a threaded accessory such as a ball on the other. … They are most associated with lip piercings – often called a “labret piercing” – but labrets are also suitable for wearing in ear and nose piercings.
Threadless jewelry became well known and perfected by a brand called Neometal. … How threadless jewelry works is the “design” or topper you choose for your piercing has a little pin on it that you bend slightly. This top fits into a hollow post and stays in place due to the tension from the bend on that pin!
You can mix and match the ends without removing the post and the post itself has no external thread which can catch on the piercing when you first push it through. … The removable end has a small pin which is very slightly bent by yourself to suit your required tightness of fitting.
Yes, you can! In fact, some people find labret-style piercing jewelry more comfortable to wear than the typical nostril screw because the flat backing sits flush against the inside of the nose.
It looks good – most piercings look pretty good from the outset. A small amount of redness is not uncommon, but this should subside within a couple of weeks. You may notice some dry matter at the entry or exit of your piercing. This is called “exudate” and is a byproduct of the healing process.
If you experience that it’s difficult to put in, here is a simple trick:
- Use an earring stud that you already own and insert from the front as usual.
- Once through, the stud will act as a guide to find your piercing.
- Place the back piece of your piercing jewellery on the labret and push both forward.
