Have pierced Katie a fair bit over the years and this new addition, the ashleigh/ashley piercing; looks awesome! Pierced w/1.2mm x 12mm titanium labret bar and later changed down (shot here) for an 8mm labret bar. Internally threaded jewellery and PTFE are also good jewellery options to look into for anything on/around the lip. The ashleigh, goes directly through the lip horizontally; so expect some swelling if/when requesting this piercing.
The Ashley/Ashleigh piercing is an inverse vertical lip. I’ve pierced countless lips and several vertical lips, but this was my first and only request for the Ashley. The needle goes through your actual lip and with this we used PTFE plastic due to heavy swelling for the first few days. Once it settled down I think Lisa later changed it for a metal bar. It looks killer and I imagine pretty painful. Very proud of this piece.
