Amanda Bynes Cheek Piercing Revealed on Tumblr

| by

Actress Amanda Bynes showed off a new cheek piercing by posting a photo to her new Tumblr account earlier this week.

The photo shows the bleached blonde celebrity smiling with oversized sunglasses, showing off her pierced dimple in a self-photographed profile shot.  

The “What I Like About You” and “Easy A” star self-proclaimed her retirement last year after a few run-ins with the law. Bynes was charged with a DUI last June, and managed to fit in a couple hit-and-runs and two charges of driving with a suspended license before the year’s end. The paparazzi also managed to nab a few photos of her smoking what looked like a pipe in her car.

To say the least, the star needed a new lease on life and so told People magazine last fall that she was retired—at the ripe old age of 26—as an actress and that she was moving to New York to “launch her career,” supposedly as a fashion designer.

But perhaps the move to New York and new clothes line wasn’t thrill enough to rival her dodgy vehicular past, and so motivated the daring reveal of her cheek piercing.

The 26-year-old millionaire, who made the Forbes list as the fifth highest-paid celebrity under 21 back in 2007, has so far been successful at flying under the radar since her run-ins with the law, but time will only tell what New York may have in store for her.
