Medusa and Monroe (upper lip) Piercings


Medusa piercings are placed in the philtrum on the top lip (sometimes known simply as ‘philtrum piercings’) and Monroe piercings are placed on the top lip in a similar position to Marilyn Monroe’s famous beauty spot (also known as ‘madonna piercings’). Lots of clients prefer to have a gem or opal as their initial jewellery in these placements to really make a feature of their top lip. We have hundreds of jewellery options that are perfectly suitable, including Swarovski CZs, opals and even beautiful 18 karat gold threaded ends. The pictures below show some examples of Medusa and Monroe piercings done at Inkhaus:
