Love It or Hate It? Monroe Piercing

If you weren't born with a beauty mark, there's a new way to fake one. A growing trend in piercing is the Monroe (named after Marilyn), which places a small stud to one side of the upper lip. What do you think?

The first time I saw one of these was in...2003 maybe? I was in high school and some girl had a monroe. I kept staring at her because it looked like she had a giant, ugly mole or something on her face. I was finally about 6 inches away from her when I realized it was a piercing. Definately not my favourite type of piercing.

I've had mine done for over two years now. I've always liked it. And, personally, I think the word "trashy" is trashy. Stop judging others. Do want you want.

there are certain people that it looks good on imo, but this pic does not do it justice. I for one would not get one but I have seen certain females, who are atractive and classy with them

I'm not in love with it, but to each their own... I dont find piercings at all, just dont over do it.

It's loveable and great and beautiful. I love itt. But a big stud prolly doesn't look all that great with all that make-up. But I love your decision. I WANT ONE!

precious pets, I think she meant the phraze "common" as in Classless types that can be found easily or like the phraze "common prostitute". She has probably only seen "trashy" girls wear it, so she asociates it with that.

I agree with punk kitty. I personally just paint mine on and people think it is real.

I've always thought any face piercing were kinda gross... and belly button piercings should be SEEN only on younger girls with great abs... I've know a few women in their 30's, who in no way should showing their guts to begin with, who have gotten them... and it's just nasty... In response to swwonder: What does "only the common girls at school" mean? Are you royalty? 'cause commoners means people other than royals (as in the UK). I don't agree that only trashy and cheap girls would have them. Everyone is entitled to their own styles and opinions in the USA, which is what makes us the great country we are. Even if I don't like something and someone else does, it doesn't mean they are "common" and I am better than them -- and it doesn't mean you are either I think it's seriously wrong for a young girl to have a tongue pierced, esp. since they are significantly used for oral sex, not fashion -- but doesn't mean anyone else is better than them (but their parents may issues)

with all due respect i think facial piercings seem really outdated. hate it. that said some people suit these sort of piercings and some just don't. i know i could never pull it off.

I know a couple of people that have had this kind of piercing some years ago, and they still have scarring from it :/ Looks almost like an acne-scar.

I had no idea people had named this ugliness after Marilyn Monroe; why not the (Cindy) Crawford piercing?
