Recent?: If this was done recently it should go away. The blood will be absorbed through the body with time!

Lip piercing: There are always potential risks having non medical personnel pierce any area. Seems the labial vessels were injured by the piercing. Thus the bleed with swelling and ecchymosis. Time will allow this to resolve. But if unsure seek in person mD opinions.
