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!
Here's another great Medusa, and she's also rocking some serious plugs which look fantastic on her.
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.
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.

This girl has a lot going on and it's all gorgeous, but pay special attention to the adorable dimple piercings!
Of course facial piercings aren't just for girls!
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.
Absolute perfect symmetry, and while there's a lot going on here, you've got to admire it.

These are just so cute!
I know I titled something similarly previously but look at the beauty here: septum aligned with labret and offset by snakebites.
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!

This one is such a simple and gorgeous facial piercing. Depending on the stud you have it you could look so edgy or sweet with this.

Her mouth is a weapon. Total sex appeal!

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!
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.

Like the earlier photo, this is a take on the traditional labret – the vertical labret. So sexy!
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.

When you have two piercings above your upper lip like this lovely girl, they're called angel bites.
Named for Marilyn Monroe, because of her iconic beauty mark, this is a big favorite, especially among women who love retro looks. Some people also refer to it as the Madonna.

Here, the lip piercings are snakebites – because there's one on each side. She's also rocking an eyebrow ring, and a really badass bridge.

Tell me these don't look just as amazing on a guy.
