Classic Body Piercings

Piercings have been around for centuries and the practice go back to the oldest human mummy. Piercings have become common in our society and culture, they are a form of self-expression and art. Around 5,000 years ago a mummified person was discovered with pierced ears. Scientist measured his ears to be stretched to about 7-11 mm in diameter. Then, around 2,000 years later King Tut’s body displayed evidence of wearing earrings. This has become a trait throughout history and a practice that was performed throughout time and cultures. Piercings were done for both decorative purposes and cultural purposes. These are the six most timeless piercings, the piercings that will always be classic.

Pierced Ear Lobes

The ear lobe piercing is the most common piercing in the world, it is one of the oldest forms of body modification. Earlobe piercings are done horizontally through the lobe of the ear and take around 6-8 weeks to heal. They have a very diverse jewelry selection and they need to have jewelry in them for the first year, to prevent them from closing. These can be pierced with a straight “stud” or barbell or a circular barbell (with a captive bead).

This piercing gets its name from its shape; it is two piercings connected together with one ring, creating the illusion of an orbit around the ear. The traditional orbital piercing is pierced through the lower piece of the conch, with a circular barbell. This can create a look similar to an “ear cuff” or it can be completely unique and different when done on the upper helix region. Although this piercing is specific to a circular barbell, the barbell can be customized with different colors and the “ball” that connects the circular barbell can be enclosed with different colored gems.
