Dimples are small natural indentations in the flesh on a part of the human body, especially in the cheek or on the chin. In some societies, they are considered an attractive feature.

  • Then did she lift her hands unto his chin,
    And praised the pretty dimpling of his skin.
    • Francis Beaumont, Salmacis and Hermaphroditus, line 661; reported in Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations (1922), p. 194.
  • In each cheek appears a pretty dimple;
    Love made those hollows; if himself were slain,
    He might be buried in a tomb so simple;
    Foreknowing well, if there he came to lie,
    Why, there Love lived and there he could not die.
