While there are no rules when it comes to piercings, there are still trendy piercings that come and go. For example, how many people did you see get their septum pierced last year? I saw a lot! It’s crazy to think that a piercing that many of us think of as permanent go in and out of fashion, but doesn’t that make it all the more fun?
Piercing trends make us think about piercings in new and exciting ways. Here’s what to look out for in 2017! Hopefully with awesome new twists.
Septum’s are Still Going Strong
While it seems like less and less people are getting their septum pierced that’s only because we already have! I’m sure this year the septum is not going to go out of style anytime soon. But we might see it have a more elegant and simple comeback in opposition with the bohemian craze of 2016.
Dainty Nipple Piercings
A surprising trend is the uprise in the amount of nipple piercings happening! You might not see it happening but it’s there. But along with other piercings like the belly button – what with the whole nineties craze – it’s getting a dainty make over with rose gold tones, simple jewelry and feminine accents.
Nineties Nose Studs
Speaking of the nineties, not all of the trends for 2017 are so hardcore as nipple piercings or an ear full. It seems we’re back in love with a simple nose stud! Check it out on Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato already this year!
Multiple Piercings – Ear or Otherwise
I’m pretty sure we stole this idea from layered septum piercings. You know, using multiple smaller hoops in larger sized piercings for an awesome look. Well, this year will take this to the next level. We’re talking multiple nose piercings and ear piercings – especially the conch!
Just check out all the amazing ear cuffs at Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2016 show. It was all about mimicking multiple ear piercings. Even classic brands like Dior were all over it.
This is a great trend to replicate if you aren’t willing to dedicate yourself to the long-term care of a piercing, what with the range of faux ear cuffs that do the job just as well!
Honestly, looking at pictures from just January of 2017 I’m starting to think that 2017 is the year of piercings! There’s going to be lots and it’s definitely going to be in your face. I know I’m hype to see what comes of it. What about you?
