I was 17 when I was first considering getting a Monroe piercing because I had seen so many of my friends get one and I saw how it enhanced their facial features by drawing attention to them, so I discussed it with my friends and family and they all agreed that I should get it! 🙂
Unfortunately the funds for it were not available at the time so I held off until the summer after my 19th birthday. My friend Andrea and I went to a local place we’ve both been to before to get some information about it and then one Friday afternoon we grabbed another friend of ours and my boyfriend tagged along to watch the process. 😀
Andrea went first getting her belly button pierced while I was choosing the jewellery for my Monroe piercing. The girl who pierced us was very knowledgeable in piercings sporting a few different ones of her face as well as a few others she mentioned getting.

When you’re born with a particular look, the ideal way to look and feel your best is to find out what your best features are and emphasize those features using makeup, accessories, clothing, and even body jewelry! You want to balance the look you have naturally with your individual personality and style.
This girl executes this concept perfectly by adding a combination of flirtatious makeup, a mature-looking necklace, and tough-looking piercings to a young face and adorable hairstyle to show the world that there’s much more to her than just being cute!
The spiked labret piercing gives a bit of a devious twist to the enticingly risqué red lips while the left nostril piercing provides a nice balance for the right eyebrow piercing. The spiked brow piercing enhances the upper part of the face and draws attention to the beautifully groomed eyebrows and daringly intense eye makeup, adding a hard-hitting edge to a sweet and innocent face. All three piercings work together to add a bit of sparkle to the face, brightening the look and complementing the freckles nicely to achieve a mischievous, curious, full of wonderment, and fresh-yet-mature image for this girl.

I can’t seem to stop being amazed at how well some types of body piercing looks on certain types of people!
Just look at this photo of a young girl with crazy violet hair – she has a rather long piece of labret body jewelry inserted right under her bottom lip but it looks just AMAZING!
This particular labret jewelry is a metallic spike, but as you can imagine, this is just one tiny little bit of the larger range of labret studs that are available in online body jewelry shops.
Ours is no different – you can check out our range of labret jewelry HERE and see if you spot anything to your liking! 😉
But if you look very intently, you’ll notice that the girl in the photo also has a nose piercing – it’s just that the nose stud is so small it’s pretty hard to spot it!
And here’s the good news, by the way – regardless of what kind of body piercing you have – be it labret, nose or navel – you can submit your body piercing story HERE and get free body jewelry posted to you!
No kidding, it’s totally true, just check out this tongue piercing story sent in by Svetlana from Nevada, for example! 😀
Just have a look at this amazing redhead!
Do you notice the tiny little piercing just above her upper lip?
I personally think it looks gorgeous and it almost reminds me of Merlyn Monroe and her trademark birthmark on her upper lip which added to her sex appeal! 😉
Did you know, by the way, that this type of piercing is actually called a Monroe piercing? Yes, I’m not kidding with you, they call it Monroe piercing because of its uncanny resemblance to the famous movie icon’s birthmark!
And here you can find some great Monroe body jewelry – you’ll notice the page is called labret body jewelry, but don’t worry – it’s simply because you can use labret studs in Monroe piercings and vice versa.
In case you’re considering a Monroe piercing yourself – here’s some aftercare guidelines to make sure you look after your fresh piercing properly.
