Madonna is a lip piercing done on the upper lip. This is one of the most popular lip piercings in the world. Madonna piercing is very similar to the even more common Monroe piercing and can be seen as a variation of a Monroe. Both piercings are very similar in type and the only difference is the placement. While both of these piercings are performed on the upper lip, they are done on the opposing sides of the lip. While Monroe piercing is done on the left side of the upper lip, Madonna piercing is performed on the right side. As such, Madonna piercing can be defined as a lip piercing done on the right side of the upper lip.Madonna piercing typically uses labret studs as jewelry, though some people choose to wear Captive Bead Rings or other ring types in their Madonna piercing.
Madonna piercings are always done off-center, on the right-hand side of the lip. However, you can choose whether you want to have it done higher or the lower on the lip, though the exact placement is best to be left to your piercer to decide. Just like Monroe piercing got its name from Marilyn Monroe’s beauty mark, Madonna piercing got its name for Madonna’s beauty mark that’s located on the right side of her face. It is possible to have both Madonna and Monroe piercings done. This combination is known as Angel bites, which is one of the co-called “bites” piercings.
