The cheek piercing allows you to emulate the dimpled look even if you don’t have dimples. Dainty jewelry styles sit where your dimples would be, and when you smile, they’ll pull in a little bit, offering the brightness to your smile that natural dimples would provide.
Their location makes them difficult to heal because your cheeks tend to swell quite a bit, food can get stuck in the healing piercing, and there are some complications that can occur. Beyond the potential healing and health complications, if you want to remove your cheek piercings after a while, chances are that scarring will be more substantial than with other piercings. Unlike other piercing types, the cheeks often scar after removing the jewelry, and when they do, it’s noticeable.

Your initial jewelry for your cheek piercing will be either a labret stud or straight barbell that’s around 1” in length to accommodate swelling. Since it’s so large, you will need to be careful not to accidentally chomp on your jewelry. Once the swelling has gone down, you should switch to a smaller size.
