Hi guys,

 

I had a pair of verticle lowbrets done recently (heling very well, no issues as yet), with what seems to be the usual placement, spaced by the side of the chin, roughly in line with the mouth.

It has occured to me that i could get more of these right along my jawline up to my ears almost. I've never seen this and am unaware of any other complications anatomically.

Anyone seen/ had this or got pics?

 

Assumming it's do-able would it still be accurately described as a vertical lowbret?

Is there a better name for it? A jawline piercing? A beard piercing? A mutton chop?!

The Oakbear ?Confused

Sounds interesting to me. I've wondered about doing the same thing actually. I haven't seen anyone with it done or heard of it but I'd love to see such a mod. I personally wouldn't call it a lowbret once it gets to that point so not really sure what to call it. Jawline or beard piercing sounds pretty accurate. Maybe Oakbeard piercing?Cool

It should be called the chin-strap aka "Joey Fatone". Laugh

If anyone has this type of mod, I'd love to see it. It really does sound pretty rad.

I had to google who that was!

 

I should have one soon. I need to heal a few bits first, but then i think that's next for me….

I have no idea what it's called, but if I did it on you, I'd call it the Oakbear. That'd be fun to do. hahaha.

I found a picture of a guy on BME that had something like what you are describing. Not quite as low as the jaw line but its kind of the idea. It says they are cheek piercings to a certain point and the mods further up the face are transdermal anchors. They are calling it a "Cheek Ladder". I would call it the Oakbear. Here is a link:

That's an awesome link!

 

You can't really do cheek piercings all the way up because of salivary glands in the cheeks, but I guess they got around that by doing dermal anchors. Where there's a will, there's a way!

Definatelty lower i'm thinking of. A vertical piercing rather than a horizintal one too….

I've recently seen pics of horizontal surface bars in the jawline position (on Bodymod.org, in the gallery, under unusual piercing placement), referred to as either 'beard' or 'jawline' piercings.

(So another name then?! 'Oakbeard' is growing on me, but i think that's just my vanity!)

At first glance i don't think these look much different from how a pair of vertical labrets would look in this area. The chap has retired them now, some maybe the movement in this area is problematic for surface bars?

 

It may be this week i get these done. Depends on my thoughts on a tongue split though!

I've not taken any yet as the swelling is still pretty bad, and the bars are extra long to accomodate this. (For the record this is not going to be an easy heal, although they're settling, as the swelling is pretty painful tbh).

Any pics might not be too clear as i have big sideburns/beard, from which the piercing emerges. I figure that disguises long bars and that nasty red lumpy healing look, and i'll shave when they're healed!

 

I'll post something soonish though.Smile

 

I had an idea for a name today… Frankensteins. (I got a comment at work about attatching electrodes to them a la Karloff's monster). Thoughts?
