A Madonna piercing is an upper lip piercing placed on the side of the lip. It is also known as a Monroe piercing, beauty mark piercing or Marilyn piercing.
Labret studs are worn in Madonna piercings, often with a relatively small threaded ball. Micro jewellery can be used for Madonna piercings and this piercing can be done at 1.6mm or 1.2mm. There is a risk of tooth and gum damage due to jewellery rubbing against teeth and gums. This damage can be permanent so it is vital that you consult a professional piercer in the event of any change to the area. This damage can be avoided by wearing a soft Bioplast labret stud. The outside of the piercing should be cleaned daily with saline solution. Rinse with suitable mouthwash twice daily and after eating. Avoid alcohol and smoking until fully healed.
