    Sorry to sound harsh, but that attitude site is a complete rip off :) you'll be able to get the same t-shirts off that auction site for a heck of a lot cheaper than off attitude.

    Awful site lol :p

    attitude despite having a lot of stuff is nothing like cheap, as vdsl mentioned fleabay is a good choice, alternatively a local shop/alternative market

    aye, attitude do sell the stuff, but the t-shirts are about £25 a pop IIRC. Local shops or auction sites would be much cheaper.

    push posters i think

    there was a site like star500 or something too... not sure


    btw, why do some people say "that auction site" when some others say "ebay"? i guess saying ebay is not against the rules, because so many people do it.

    Try the actual bands website, most have stores.

    Also you can get fake piercings

    I want to buy a few, not of the same band though, so it could be expensive. I'll have a look though. Maybe their label's site will sell them as well

    where would you get fake piercings from, for lips?
    Thanks

    Earache.com are pretty boss.

    Although I got slightly miffed when they did a limited run of the Iron Monkey '98 tour shirt...It made me slightly less elitist.

    You can but they look gash and you'll have everyone asking you why you have a fake lip piercing.

    How old are you?

    Drop me an email if you want piercing advice away from the forums... <ocuk username>@gmail.com

    I'm guessing that the OP wants this to be temporary as part of a party or whatever. Getting your lip pierced is very dedicated to one / a few nights out :)

    However, if you are actually wanting to do this as a day to day thing, then good luck to you, because you'll look stupid.

    Only want it to see what it would look like. I want one "for real", but want to try it out for a day (not a whole day. About 5 mins). I **wouldn't** wear it outside, just want it to see what i think of it after seeing myself in mirrors a couple of times (and i'm not going to go in a shop and hold one upto my lip, to see what it looks like.) :p. Thanks anyway though for your advice. If i decide to get one I might email you :)

    :) Ill have a look at that earache site.

    Buy a smooth-segment 1.6mm ring from Wildcat (google them - can't remember the URL) of about 14mm diameter (depends how 'full' your lips are).

    When it arrives, remove the segment and pop it on your lip.

    In the middle.

    Put it near the side and I'll kill you with mind bullets.

    Oi.

    Wrong shaven, fat-lobed type.

    You're shopping in the wrong place...

    I just had a 6mm smooth segment ring made for my PA (ID of 19mm. Check it.) for less than £20. In Ti.

    Ok thanks I'll have a look.
    Nah I want it in the middle. TBH i really want a spike or something (ie not a ring) but can't really get fake ones. Unless I glue it on.



    Thanks, sent you an email :)

    In that case, get a spare ball from a piercers (50p or a quid), pop it on your lip with a little dab of PVA or similar.

    I've never got on with rings in my lip.

    It's pretty impossible to wear a ring these days anyway:
