Hello!

I'm sort of new to body modification, and I just had a quick question about my stretched labret piercing. I have to take it out for work purposes, and I currently had it at a 12g. Will it shrink back/heal completely? Or will there always be a small hole?

In addition, I'm currently stretching my ears. I was wondering what the largest size you can stretch to and have it shrink back to (relatively) normal would be. I was considering 0g, but I don't want to be stuck with 6g holes at the smallest if I decided to go back. I was told for some people they stretch fine and can stretch back to normal completely, but for others they'll stay somewhat large.

Thanks!

I dont know how accurate it is but ive heard that up to 2g it can shrink back down to pretty much a standard piercing.  As for the lebret no clue that one hopefully one of the pros knows.

With your labret, If you wanted to close it, then it should close just be fine with minimal scarring.

The point of no return with lobes is generally around a 2-0 gauge, although that is different for everyone.

What she said. I had my labret for years. Took it out for a few years. When I went to put in back in had to pop it again. I would tell you how it looked as in being healed but I havnt seen my chin in years. Haha.
We're all fucked now!!
