The Madonna piercing sits on the left or on the right above the upper lip.
Because there it gives the impression by a beauty spot it´s also described as Chrome Crawford, Marilyn or Monroe piercing. Because the piercing is stitched through muscular tissue there can arise a bigger swelling than in other parts of face.

The healing takes about 4 to 7 weeks.
