Body piercing has become far more socially acceptable over the last decade as more people are choosing to shun the traditional ear and nose piercings for something a little more exotic. As long as the piercing is performed by an experienced artist, it will usually heal perfectly and leave little to no scarring when removed. The following weird and wonderful piercings are sure to help you stand out from the crowd.
Named after Hollywood legend Marilyn Monroe, the Monroe piercing sits just above the upper lip on the left or right hand side. A small silver or black bar is usually used for this piercing to create the impression of a beauty spot. Although a Monroe can be quite painful, it usually heals quickly in a relatively short time.
