Cool Body Piercings

You consider yourself pretty well versed when it comes to piercings. You’ve read up on them, you’ve looked into them, you even have a few! You may have run across the piercings listed below as seven of the unique piercings you hadn’t really thought about, but did you really consider them? Here are seven piercings you may just be itching to try after you read this.

Bridge Piercing

This could technically be two dermal piercings or a surface piercing, depending on how exactly you’d want to go about it, but this piercing runs across the bridge of your nose. There is some variation as to where exactly along the bridge of your nose it is done, but it is very commonly placed right between the eyes. This one is definitely different than your average nose piercing, but if you’re looking to get something truly different, you may have just found your piercing of choice.

New Piercings

You’re looking to get your first piercing. You’re ready to go but there is one major decision in your way: where on your body should you get pierced? With so many different piercings out there and so many options, the decision of what piercing to get can be quite daunting. Here are eight different first time piercing locations that vary from the super simple to ease you in, to a little more daring to flip the switch on first time piercings.

1. Earlobe

Odds are you may even already have this and you’re looking for your first non-earlobe piercing. In the event you don’t have this already, though, the earlobe is a great place to start. Often considered one of the least painful locations to be pierced, the earlobes can be a way to ease into the piercing lifestyle. Not to mention, the diversity in earlobe jewelry is never ending! If you don’t have this piercing already, go. Get it done, and let the piercing world unfold before you in no time.

You’re looking for your next piercing and you really want to just go for it this time. You want to step out on a limb and pierce outside the box. What do you choose? In a world where the needle is the limit, the possibilities are truly endless. Deciding on some new needlework can be tricky, and it’s a very important decision to make. If you’re looking to show your adventurous side, here are 5 piercings to get when you’re looking to shake things up a bit!

1. Transverse lobe

This is such a different take on what is typically considered your run of the mill piercing. Everyone has their earlobes pierced, right? Right. Not everyone, however, has the transverse lobe piercing that pierces more vertically along and through the side of the earlobe. Take an average piercing spot and make it grand with a different take on the ear piercing.

Forward Helix Piercing FAQ

2/13/2018 12:23 PM

Forward Helix Piercing Guide

A helix piercing is located on the upper outer rim of cartilage of the ear, while a forward helix is positioned opposite on the inner upper rim of the ear near the “side burn” area where the ear and the head meet. Because of the positioning of this piercing, it can be quite dainty. It can even be done as a double or triple forward helix along the entire rim of the ear.

What Jewelry is Worn in a Forward Helix Piercing?

Just like most cartilage piercings, a small ring, circular barbell (that won’t impede hearing or mess with any other ear piercings nearby) or a small helix labret stud. A helix stud consists of a ball end or flat back end, a post and a jeweled front that screw on and off.

Stud Piercing

Stud earrings are the most popular kind of piercing jewelry, because so many people have their ears pierced! It’s the piercing most of us grew up on, and is probably the piercing that started out our addictions for other body piercings. Even though it was probably your first piercing does mean it has to be left behind. Maybe you’ve noticed but we’re obsessed with layering ear piercings. But while styles like the constellation ear trend may be pretty feminine in style, here are some stud earring options for whether you’re a girl or a guy!
