It’s been a while since we’ve heard any significant news about Amanda Bynes … that is, she’s managed to avoid acting weird in public for attention for a few weeks now. As you may recall, we learned back in November that homegirl joined Instagram and started sharing personal photos with fans … that way she can share her weirdness directly to her followers. For the past few weeks, she hasn’t really posted anything interesting … until now. Apparently, Amanda went and got a facial piercing … or, at least, she wants us to believe that she got pierced. Amanda posted two photos that show her with a supposed piercing on her left cheek. Click below to see the photos in full and see what you think of her new look.
It’s possible that Amanda went and got this piercing done but it’s also possible that she’s faking it for attention. With the first black and white photo above, Amanda called the piercing a “subdermal” … which it is not. A subdermal is a piece of body jewlry that is placed beneath the skin so that it creates raised bumps on the body (it looks like THIS). If this is real, then it’s just a piercing typically referred to as a Beauty Mark or the Marilyn Monroe (because its placement on the cheek is where a beauty mark might be found). The fact that she doesn’t even know what she got on her face leads me to believe it’s not a real piercing at all … that it’s a piece of jewelry held in place by a magnet. Fake or not, I can’t say that it’s a bad look … I know lots of cool chicks with Beauty Mark piercings. My guess, tho, is that Amanda just wants us to think she’s being different so … if that’s the case, I can’t say that I’m impressed very much :/
UPDATE: I stand corrected, many of you readers correctly reminded me that the Marilyn Monroe piercing is one on the upper lip, not cheek. This is merely a dimple piercing, if it’s an actual piercing at all, and is still not a subdermal.
