Once the reserve of punks, goths and teenage rebels, piercings are now have become far more mainstream and anyone with the capacity to play air guitar has been pulling them off with aplomb. Snug, upper lobe and multiple constellations are going to be trendsetters in the coming years. Although piercing cannot change who we really are, it doesn’t change the fact that it makes people feel trendy, with the idea that it adds beauty or status to someone.
If you’ve been looking for piercing ideas that go beyond the traditional, here are a few styles that might just inspire you:
When it comes to ear piercing, the daith piercing is currently one of the biggest trends. Stylish and trendy, the daith is immediately eye-catching and a great way to express your personality. A daith piercing is a piercing through the smallest fold of cartilage in your ear, right at the point where the outer ridge that runs along the top of your ear connects to your inner ear, just above the ear canal. In an attempt to replicate acupuncture, the daith piercing is applied to the same part of the ear where an acupuncture needle is inserted. This type of piercing has been done for thousands of years, but can be quite painful due to the bony cartilage and care is required to keep it clean and prevent infections.
Ideal jewelry to be worn in the daith Piercing?
- Captive Ring
One of the fastest growing new trends in piercing is a medusa piercing, also known as a philtrum piercing. The medusa piercing is located above the center of the upper lip, in the perforation of the philtrum. Additionally, many who choose this piercing pair it with other styles, like a labret piercing, to create an alluring cluster of lip jewelry.
Ideal jewelry to be worn in the medusa Piercing?
- Stainless Prong-set CZ Labret
- Blackline Labret
- Stainless Steel Labret
If you’ve been thinking about joining the face-jewelry club, septum piercings are gathering pace. The needle (and then jewelry) pass through the thin, soft piece of skin towards the tip of your nose, between the cartilage and the thicker, rigid skin below it. The once unconventional nose ring, the septum piercing has become the newest “it” accessory for millennials seeking to make a fashionable statement. The best thing about a septum piercing is the fact that, unlike a tattoo, it’s not permanent, and doesn’t leave much of a trace if you decide to take the ring out for good.

- Captive Bead Ring
- Circular Barbell Ring
Choosing the right piercing option is an important decision. Do keep in mind that it is wrong to assume just because a certain piercing style suits someone else, it will suit you too. Go for the dummy version first and then select the piercing style.
