The New Piercing Fashion Rules
This year I feel like the piercing rules have changed from previous times. Gone are the days where it’s dare to be seen as showing your rebellious side or even a little grungy. Say ‘hello’ to the current trends such as low-key studs, multiple ear piercings and all manner of metal in your helix, tragus, daith and rook (yes I had to google image a diagram of an ear to learn what these parts were called)!
The beauty of piercings is if you change your vibe, you just take them out. Simple! They’re individuality on an entry-level scale and without the life-long commitment of such things like tattoos.
I myself currently just have the first and more traditional holes done in each lobe, but in the past I have had my nose pierced with a very dainty sparkly stud and in the good-old Britney days, my belly-button was pierced also.
I am now revisiting the idea of getting more piercings and keep finding myself drawn to such looks as in the above mood board I have created and get a lot on inspiration from the Instagram account of Maria Tash.
Maria Tash is jewellery designer with stores based in London and New York, who specialises in body piercings, inspired by Indian and Pakistani designs. Her piercings that they offer are not only beautiful and very on style but are delicate and quite elegant looking, thanks to the dainty pieces you can choose from, as well as the materials used such as diamonds and opals.
As much as I love her pieces, sadly I don’t really have the budget for her bling, however can draw inspiration from them and create similar looks myself with local piercers and stores.
I really like the look of the constellation piercing style, which is often a small cluster of piercings on each lobe. I am considering getting my second holes done in both ears on the lobes and then just one of my ears to have a third hole in the lobe, the helix and forward helix done. I think this look with the right jewellery can look simply stylish and is a great way to change your look without the commitment of having them in forever.
I just wonder how painful these will be…?!
If you have any of the piercings done I have mentioned, please leave me a comment and let me know how you found them and also what the healing of them was like once pierced.
