Dimple piercing is one of the cheek piercing ideas. It includes piercing the cheeks but in the dimple region. In a dimple piercing, there is penetration of the tissue of the dimple area into the oral cavity. It is mostly done on both dimple area rather than in only one. Thus, dimple piercing has to be symmetric and on both dimple regions.
The piercing is possible with the little damage of the nerve thus, giving you some dimples. By name you should not confuse yourself that for dimple piercing you need natural dimples. Either you dimples or not, you can get some dimple piercing.
Though by piercing it means the penetration into the cheeks, but with an alternative microdermal implants, you do not need to do complete piercings. This will help to avoid the odor of the saliva like secretion in the cheeks. But, this can leave behind a larger scar that might not heal until a long time.
DETAILS ON DIMPLE PIERCING!
While making dimple piercing, 1.6 mm flat labrets studs are used so that the jewelry might not get off due to unintentional biting or touching with teeth or tongue. Moreover this avoids the new internal tissues to grow and cover the internal piece or end of the jewelry. This is helpful in both way. Even the internal region of mouth is free from damage from the jewelry.
The healing time varies from person to person. Overall the healing time is a lot. There is more comfort with flat back. If the person who pierces will cut the barbell out from the inside of a mouth, the healing might be problematic. There can also be minor swelling. If the jewelry is shortened, there are no problems once the healing is achieved.

6. CAN YOU GO BACK TO REGULAR LIFE WITH DIMPLE PIERCING?
In order to go back to your regular life, you might require a good one year of time. Even after that, you might not be solely habituated to every regular stuff you were doing before the piercing! Adding moisturizer or cream will still be a tough job. You still feel the jewelry on the inside of your mouth, and what else? Even if you forget that the piercing exist, a stranger will point them out and ask about them!
Even after being healed completely, the piercing region can swell and be infected because of pollution or other regions. You need to be extra cautious to make every step in a wise way. Therefore, getting piercing is giving birth. You can never go back to the time when you had no baby. So, piercing brings a big responsibility along with amazing look.
Some people take their piercings so lightly. You can do that as well. This is how you forget that there exist some holes in your cheeks. For that you need to avoid complaining about the trouble it brings and adapt to new changes. Also start convincing people that you are fine with the piercings, and eventually you will be! If there is no going back, make it worth it.
7. HOW WILL PEOPLE JUDGE ME WITH DIMPLE PIERCING?
First of all, you are doing it for yourself, not harming anyone, so, you should not worry of how will people take your piercings as! They will judge you no matter how well you convince them. That is what people are good at. And, they will not judge you in a good way.
Our society consists of people who are rather concerned with certain choices as the standard ones. People who tattoo or pierce somewhere besides ears are considered different and somehow bad. You might find it difficult to get jobs or even admission in the school or college.
But keep it straight! There are certain industries like that of designing and fashion, who would not judge you on the basis of your appearance because they have already make a huge step a head than others.
Moreover, your family will not support you at most. Your friends might, but not the random people you meet in the everyday rituals. There are people who find it cool to have piercings in dimple but will not prefer to get it done on themselves. But this is a matter of choice.
Dimple piercing has nothing to reflect about your personality. Though mostly skateboarders, rock stars, tattoo artists, emo group, etc. seem to be having it, but again, it does not reflect anything about your personality.
No one has a right to pass a comment that will hurt the other person. If you are passing harsh comment on someone who has dimple piercing, you are the culprit and the other person is simply a victim.
It is fine for the strangers to ask questions like “Does it hurt?” or “Where can you get one?” but the strangers who unkindly touch the piercing or get more into it, that is again not accepted. Old people are often making frowning face when they see the youngsters getting piercings. They are also passing comments like advises to not get further piercings or get the current one out as well.
Society has a lot of people, more than half, who are minding others business and taking it seriously than looking after their own damn life. This is the reason behind all the hatred and nonacceptance.
