This monroe piercing story was submitted by Melanie Fairon.
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.

Well my first piercing ever was my monroe.
I had pierced it myself under a being a rebel act. You can say I was bored and the regular parents said no, pretty much made me do it even more.
I sat in the washroom using a earing of mine to pierce my lip, it actually worked too. It didn’t hurt one bit either, so you can say i thought i was cool for doing so too. I got cuaght by my step-mother and i had to take it off. But it did heal and i had no infection even though i didnt do it how it needed to be done.
Some months went by and i went on vacation, I went and got it professionally done and i also got my belly button pierced also at that time. It was funny because i had one guy piercing my lip while the other was piercing my bellly button. I began to cry thinking they already had pinched me when i come to find out they have not even started. I felt like such a dork and the guys where luaghing because i freaked out and they didnt even began to pierce.
The guys where really funny and got my mind ofthe piercing part and also told me how to take care of my piercings too. I wont ever pierce anything myself ever again because you just never know. And the guys warned me not to either!

okay so it was about a month ago i decided to bug my mom again about getting my monroe pierced.
i had been wanting it for about two years already we were driving to pick up my oldest sister from work and i just went for it. suprisingly she said yes but i had to pay for it . so after we got my sister we went to the shop closest to my house which was skin graphics tattoos located @ 1255 SW LOOP 410 STE 140 SAN ANTONIO TEXAS .
we went in and we filled out the papers and stuff then my super hot piercer said follow me 😉 and as soon as he said that i froze! but after about 15 seconds of me standing there i followed him in and he explained to me what he was gonna do.
then he marked it and then he put the needle through from inside to out! 😯 it hurt a little bit! but i got over it really quick. then afterwards he gave me a little bag of sea salt to rub on it until it was fully healed . he was a really sweet guy.
i think i might go there and get more piercings from him. it took my monroe about two weeks to heal but before it healed it would get really swollen up at the night and mornings so i ate ice cream and sucked on ice for about 4 days until my swelling went away.
everyone who has seen it says it looks really good on me but hopefully when school starts again i don’t have to take it out! ❗
