Master Piercing Includes Monroe Piercing in the List of Body Piercings Discussed

Master Piercing, a website dedicated to body piercing ideas for both men and women, has included information regarding Monroe piercing. Monroe piercing falls under the category of lip piercing and is positioned on the left side of the upper lip. That particular spot is where Marilyn Monroe’s beauty spot was located and thus, this particular body piercing is named after her. It is akin to the Madonna piercing, which also belongs to the subcategory of Angel bite piercing, which in turn, is classified under lip piercing or oral piercing. Monroe piercing is also called “Crawford piercing,” and it is one of the cutest and coolest lip piercings because it provides the individual with a beauty mark made of a shiny stud.

Those who are interested in getting a Monroe piercing should find a parlor with certification from the Association of Professional Piercers (APP) and have a license for all types of facial piercings and body modifications. It is important to ensure that the equipment is clean and sterilized before it is used.

With regards to the pain, on a scale of 0 to 10, the pain felt for a Monroe piercing is 5. Although it is not too painful, it can ache a bit because the upper area of the lip contains a lot of nerve endings. The twinge will depend on the individual’s pain tolerance but the procedure is fast so that it can be instantaneous pain. Some bleeding can be expected during the piercing process and the lip may be swollen for a few days and continue to ache for a couple of days. Healing usually takes around 6 to 10 weeks. Care should be taken to prevent infection, or else it will take longer to heal.

There are certain things that should be done to ensure proper aftercare. These include: eating, chewing and drinking carefully and slowly so as not to disturb the piercing till it heals completely; removing the crust from the jewelry using only clean fingers or a cotton swab; cleaning gently and not vigorously as it can strain the piercing; rinsing the mouth frequently using an antibacterial mouthwash; using a toothbrush with soft bristles for brushing teeth; dabbing the piercing with moist cotton soaked in warm saline solution; and using an ice cube to reduce the swelling of the lip.

There are also a number of things not to do in order to avoid complications. These include: not eating sticky and spicy food; not removing the stud initially; not using cosmetics near the piercing area; and not swimming in public pools.

There are several risks associated with a Monroe piercing. These include: scarring, infections, gum erosion, and teeth chipping. There will be a visible scar if the piercing is stretched. Infections can usually occur with an open wound, so it is important to be extra careful while the piercing is still healing. And it is advisable to be careful when choosing a stud for the Monroe piercing because if it touches the gums, it can result into gum erosion. Furthermore, the wrong choice of stud can scratch the teeth and damage it through frequent rubbing.

Those who get a Monroe piercing should also be aware of the symptoms of an infection. These include: extreme redness in the piercing area; severe swelling that worsens gradually and makes it difficult to eat, drink or talk; severe pain; rashes or reactions around the piercing area; irritation and itching for a long time near the piercings; and discharge of pus and blood.

To remedy the infection, there are a number of things that can be done. These include: cleaning the infected areas with a clean cotton plug soaked in saline water or antibacterial liquid; not removing the jewelry; consulting a doctor for proper medical care; and following the doctor’s prescription for the specified duration.
