So I wanna get my Monroe done,, but I’m not shure if I wanna get that done or just my lip because my Beauty mark is on the top and I’m not shure if it would look dumb if I did my piercing on the top left :/ 2 years ago
Entries from everyone
I’ve been wanting this piercing for a longg time. My parents won’t let me get facial piercings for a long while, but I’m working on getting my friend to do it for me:)
I’m sick of wearing fake monroes all the time :d 3 years ago
I got my monroe pierced when I was 17. I had wanted it since I was in jr. high and I finally convinced my mom after telling her that I would go and get it myself in a year anyway. The first tattoo shop we went to wouldn’t do the piercing because it was considered an “oral piercing,” meaning I would have to be 18. But another reputable shop did not have that policy.
My mom cried.
I didn’t flinch.
I didn’t swell up too bad either, which was surprising. I got scared going into the piercing shop because the girl before me who had returned due to complications with her piercing had the hugest swollen lip.
Now, a year later, I’m still very happy with my piercing. I use a push-in rod made of plastic that doesn’t irritate my gums or teeth like the metal. I usually wear a small 14k gold star. My boyfriend thinks it’s cute and it reminds me of jewel stone beauty marks of the 18th century. 4 years ago
I want to get my monroe pierced to make a statement about piercings in general. I want to prove that not everyone with a facial piercing is a “freak”; I want to show that I can still be a “good girl” and have this. I also want to show another side of my personality and show that there’s a lot more to me than people see simply at a glance. I want to show that I’m different and do something “bad”.
But, I’m nervous about scarring and manipulating my “natural beauty”. I’m also afraid of the pain/swellig involved and whether I’ll really regret this or not.

This was my first piercing, other than a misguided ear piercing when I was 16(!) that got infected and grew over, so I was a little bit nervous going in (needles and blood and pain, oh my!). But it went beautifully and now I’ve finally got a foreign object embedded in my face and a highly disturbed mother, so all is well.

i finally got my monroe done yesterday! it didnt hurt at all. i saw a lot of people that said it hurt but for me i didnt even realize it had gone through yet. i absoutley love it. although it didnt bother me till today the back is uncomfortably hitting my gums but im hoping its just because the bar on the piercing is too big. anyways if u want it, get it! 5 years ago
