I admit, I'm not a huge fan of facial piercings, but I can't deny that they offer wonderful, beautiful ways to express yourself-I just don't see myself being able to pull off any looks and it makes me sad. They're also becoming much more accepted – granted, some more than others, but because of this, it pays to be aware of both traditional and edgier facial piercings. If you're thinking of getting pierced or simply like the look of piercings on other people, check out these gorgeous examples!

1 The Medusa
Here's another great Medusa, and she's also rocking some serious plugs which look fantastic on her.
The Medusa piercing is a type of facial jewelry that has been gaining popularity in recent years. It is named after the mythical creature, Medusa, who had snakes for hair. The piercing is a vertical labret piercing, which is placed in the center of the upper lip. It is usually adorned with a barbell, which is a type of jewelry with a ball on either end.
The Medusa piercing is often combined with other facial piercings to create a unique look. For example, it can be combined with a septum piercing, a nose piercing, or even a web piercing. The piercing is also sometimes combined with a Monroe piercing, which is a piercing placed in the same spot as Marilyn Monroe's signature beauty mark.
The Medusa piercing is relatively easy to care for. It should be cleaned with a saline solution at least twice a day, and should also be checked regularly for any signs of infection. It is also important to make sure that the jewelry is not too tight, as this can cause discomfort and even lead to infection.
2 Nose Piercing
This has to be one of my ideal facial piercings! It's so classic and I would love to have one (I'm probably too old to get it done now) so I just admire them on others.
Ladies, are you curious about the significance and value of promise rings? These rings, beyond being a simple token of affection, convey deep commitments, unspoken promises, and the steps towards a shared future. Don't underestimate the power of this delicate symbol of love and devotion. Be sure to educate yourself on their true meaning!
3 Septum Piercing
This is a different take on a traditional nose piercing. Would you ever get your septum pierced? I wanted it but I'm afraid it would hurt.
4 Dimple Piercing

This girl has a lot going on and it's all gorgeous, but pay special attention to the adorable dimple piercings!
5 For the Boys
Of course facial piercings aren't just for girls!
6 Slightly Tribal
There is something tribal about these piercings, from the color to the double septum. I love the way her nose studs match the Medusa, also known as a philtrum piercing.
7 Perfect Symmetry
Absolute perfect symmetry, and while there's a lot going on here, you've got to admire it.
8 Dimples II

These are just so cute!
Dimples II is a type of facial jewelry that has been gaining popularity in recent years. It is a small, silver-colored barbell that is inserted into the cheek, creating two dimples in the face. It is often used as an alternative to traditional piercings, as it does not require any large amounts of stretching or healing time.
The barbell is usually made of titanium, stainless steel, or gold, and is relatively easy to insert. It typically takes about 10-15 minutes to insert, and the procedure is relatively painless. Dimples II can be worn for up to a year, and can be removed at any time.
Dimples II is a great way to add a unique edge to your look. It can be worn with any outfit, and can be used to accentuate your features. It is also a great way to add a touch of glamour or sophistication to your look.
Dimples II is a great choice for those looking for a subtle, yet edgy look. It is a great way to express your individual style and stand out from the crowd. It is also a great way to add a touch of glamour to your everyday look.
9 Stunning Symmetry
I know I titled something similarly previously but look at the beauty here: septum aligned with labret and offset by snakebites.
10 The Eyes Have It
Here you have an eyebrow piercing and an anti-eyebrow. Very edgy and unique.

I have my tongue pierced but I don't think I could do this. Known as the smiley piercing, this one is very fierce!
12 Single Snakebite

There's some serious symmetry here as well, and it's stunning.

Love the viper bites! And they go so well with the Monroe.
True, your tongue's not quite on your face, but it's … in your face? Besides, it's too popular not to include!
17 Shark Bites
In addition to having his eyebrow and septum pierced, this edgy cutie has shark bites – that's what you call it when you have double piercings on both sides of your lower lip.
18 Vertical Labret

Like the earlier photo, this is a take on the traditional labret – the vertical labret. So sexy!
19 Beautiful Balance
Here, a septum piercing pairs beautifully with a Medusa.
That's actually what this is called, the anti-eyebrow! It's an excellent alternative if you're afraid an eyebrow piercing won't take.
