Keep It Classic

There’s something admirable about old Hollywood glamor: the dark red lips, the heavy mascara, and we can’t forget the beauty mark. If you’re looking for a piercing that will mimic the look of having a beauty mark in the area and avoid having to draw it on with make-up every day, we have the perfect solution for you. Presenting our 16G PVD Black Round Top Internally Threaded Flat Back Steel Post. The smooth and round black top of this piece will look exactly as if you have a beauty mark.

In the movie Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Marilyn Monroe sings the song “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.” Why not take inspiration from this song and add some sparkle to your monroe piercing? At Urban Body Jewelry, we have a lot of options for jewelry that mimics the look of a diamond.

First, you could go with one of our top-rated pieces, our CZ Prong Titanium Internally Threaded Labret.

But if you want to really add some bling, you can’t ignore our 14KT White Gold Clear CZ Ball Labret.

Get Stoned

While you certainly could get a gold threadless post and pair it with our 14KT Gold Hemp Leaf Threadless Top, that’s not the type of stoned we mean here. Instead, we’re referring to actual stones.
