13 Celebrities that May Inspire Your Next Piercing

These days there are so many piercings to choose from, with newly popular ones, such as the nasalang, appearing all the time. With so many options, it can be difficult to decide what you want your next piercing to be. However, these 13 celebrities may provide the inspiration you need to make a decision.

Eyebrow Piercings

Eyebrow piercings are becoming popular once again, regardless of gender. When the promotions for BTS’ new single “Butter” came out, fans were shocked to see that Jeon Jungkook was sporting a brand-new eyebrow piercing. In September, Cardi B debuted her new eyebrow piercing at Paris Fashion Week.

Navel Piercings

In the ‘90s, belly button piercings were popularized by the pop stars sporting them on MTV; fans were inspired to pierce their navels because Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and many other famous icons showed them off in midriff-showing outfits. Today, a new series of pop icons are inspiring people to pierce their navels. One of these pop icons is Billie Eilish who posted a photo on Instagram of her sporting a bling-filled upper navel piercing. Additionally, Normani debuted her navel piercing in the music video for her hit song “Motivation.”

Nostril Piercings

Travis Barker recently started appearing in tabloids and pop culture news now that he’s engaged to Kourtney Kardashian. However, before his famed relationship, he was known for being the drummer to the pop-punk band Blink 182. For a while, Travis rocked two nostril piercings and hoop through his labret piercing. However, he now only wears a hoop in one of his nostril piercings. Another celebrity who recently got her nostrils pierced is Chrissy Teigen. Since early 2021, she’s been seen wearing dainty silver studs in her nostrils.

Septum Piercings

Septum piercings have increased in popularity recently, especially as septum jewelry had more and more variety. Both Willow Smith and FKA Twigs are known for sporting their septum jewelry. While Willow Smith often wears a plain seamless ring in her septum piercing, FKA Twigs has been seen with a gold beaded clicker.

Nipple Piercings

For many of us born in the ‘80s and ‘90s, it’s hard to forget the Super Bowl Halftime Show where Janet Jackson had her infamous wardrobe malfunction and her nipple piercing was visible to viewers—even if it was only for a second. While that was considered a controversy then, many celebrities have been showcasing their nipple jewelry on red carpets. Keke Palmer was seen wearing a see-through Vivienne Westwood shirt in which her pierced nipples were on display. Additionally, both Kylie and Kendall Jenner have had their nipple piercing jewelry visible underneath clothes they’ve worn to award shows and red-carpet events.

For males who need nipple piercing inspiration, look to Lenny Kravitz. In addition to his dual nostril piercings, he also has his nipples pierced.

Regardless of who you get your inspiration from, you can make your piercing fit your specific style through the jewelry you choose. When your piercing is healed and it’s safe to switch out your jewelry, make sure you browse our large selection.
