Choosing Your Next Piercing Based on Your Zodiac Sign | Piercing Trends
From memes to dating profiles, astrology has become a huge trend these days. Whether you check your Co-Star app for your daily horoscope or read a website for dating advice based on your sign, the stars can provide you with much-needed advice for just about anything. While constellation piercings are one way to involve the stars when it comes to piercing, have you ever thought about choosing your next piercing based on your zodiac sign? Whether you’re indecisive or want to try something new, let the stars decide your next piercing.
Aquarius (January 20th to February 18th): Septum Piercing
An Aquarius is known to be eccentric and free-spirited, which is why a septum piercing is a perfect match. If you’re an Aquarius, chances are you’re already making statements with your unique fashion choices. So, why not spruce up your face with a flashy septum piercing? The best part of a septum piercing is how many jewelry options you have to choose from to go with your quirky, yet sartorial, style. From rose gold hinged ring to flashy gemmed clickers, black horn septum spikes to mint coated stainless steel captive bead rings, there’s bound to be something that makes you all the more unique.
Pisces (February 19th to March 20th): Orbital Piercings
A Pisces is known to have his or her head in the clouds. Ruled by an active imagination combined with a passion for helping and caring about others, an orbital piercing is a great match. An orbital piercing is actually two piercings that are connected by a singular piece of jewelry. Unlike an industrial piercing, which connects the two holes with a bar, the orbital piercing joins the two holes together via a hoop. Those who are Pisces are always about shared experiences, so what better way to match that than with an orbital piercing?
Aires (March 21st to April 19th): Nostril Piercing
The ever-optimistic Aires is also known for being low-key and courageous. To highlight the electrifying joy for life of an Aires, why not get a nostril piercing. Although minimalist, a nostril piercing has plenty of customization options: For example, a truly minimalist hoop ring or something a bit more flashy, such as a 14k gold snake to add to a post that will highlight the fiery side of an Aires.
Taurus (April 20th to May 20th): Rook Piercing
A Taurus is known to be headstrong, but also extravagant; they tend to have a regal quality about them. Therefore, a rook piercing is a perfect match for this star sign. Going through the cartilage in the highest ridge in your ear, the rook piercing is quite an attention grabber. Rooks can either be pierced with hoops or curved barbells, giving you plenty of options to look as flashy or extravagant as you want. For example, you can choose a clicker with beautiful cubic zirconia gems, a curved barbell with beautiful opal ends, or even a golden clicker with a cute bumblebee on it.
Gemini (May 21st to June 20th): High-Low Lobe Piercing
The high-low lobe piercing is perfect for those whose astrological sign is Gemini. Because Gemini means twins in Latin, it makes perfect sense that the high-low lobe piercing is the perfect match. Often containing two or more piercings stacked or clustered together on the earlobe, the high-lobe piercing reflects the duality of Gemini. And because a Gemini is known to be playful and curious about nearly everything, the high-low lobe piercing gives you plenty of options to mix and match jewelry. Whether you want a simple gemmed end paired with a hoop earring, or you want to pick jewelry to go with your outfit of the day, this piercing provides you with the variety you need to match the Gemini indecisiveness.
Cancer (June 21st to July 22nd): Navel Piercing
Astrological signs rule different parts of the body, and Cancer rules the stomach. Additionally, Cancers tend to be nostalgic and navel-gazers, so it makes perfect sense that the piercing to match this star sign is the navel, or belly button, piercing. Remember in the 90s to the early 2000s when it seemed everyone had their belly button pierced? Now you can bring that style back. From dangly anchors to a large gemmed end similar to what Brittney Spears wore for the “I’m a Slave 4 U” MTV VMAs performance, you can revive the best moments of the past 30 years.
Leo (July 23rd to August 22nd): Tragus Piercing
The animal matched with this astrological sign is the lion, commonly referred to as the King of the Jungle. Known for always wanting to be the center of attention and extreme confidence, a tragus piercing is perfect to match this sign’s personality traits. Because the tragus, which is the little piece of cartilage before the ear canal, is a bit more painful to pierce since it’s thicker cartilage, only the confidence of the Leo would be able to have the confidence to deal with the pain and pull this piercing off. The best part of a tragus piercing is the fact that there are so many options to draw attention to your ear. From cute elephant ends to extravagant floral tragus clickers, there’s something to match the regal, yet playful, nature of the Leo.
Virgo (August 23rd to September 22nd): Forward Helix Piercing
A forward helix piercing is a great match for the Virgo’s modest nature. It’s a piercing that’s decorative, but not over the top. Located on the upper outer cartilage closest to your face, these piercings are typically small and simple. Whether you want to match Scarlett Johansson, who has been seen wearing a very subtle and thin silver hoop, or you want a tiny gem to adorn that area, this piercing is the perfect sensible yet creative piercing.
Libra (September 22nd to October 22nd): Lobe Piercings
Libra represents the scales. Those who are Libras tend to prefer things to be balanced, so why not get a set of matching lobe piercings? In addition to balance, Libras also like to make things aesthetically pleasing. Fortunately, lobe piercings are extremely customizable, with thousands of options for jewelry to put in them. Whether you adorn your ears with hoops or matching black onyx earrings, you can’t go wrong by adding symmetrical lobe piercings to your style.
Scorpio (October 23rd to November 21st): Conch Piercing
Powerful, mysterious, strong, and independent are all adjectives that can be used to describe Scorpios. Additionally, Scorpios are drawn to things that are thrilling or risky. Therefore, a conch piercing is a perfect match for Scorpios. One of the more painful piercings because they go through the thick cartilage in the center of the ear, conch piercings are extreme attention grabbers. Whether you want an inner conch piercing adorned with a flashy end, like the sign for Scorpio, or you want an outer conch piercing to put an eye-grabbing hoop through, the stars say, “go for it.”
Sagittarius (November 22nd to December 21st): Helix Piercing
A fire sign, a Sagittarius is rebellious, independent, and ever-changing. Just think of Miley Cyrus, who embodies many of the Sagittarius personality traits. The helix piercing is perfect because it’s rebellious enough but won’t detract from the natural magnetizing quality those who are a Sagittarius have. Located on the cartilage farthest away from your face, the helix piercing can be adorned with captive beads, studs, and more to match your always-changing style and mind.
Capricorn (December 22nd to January 21st): Stacked Cartilage Piercings
Ambitious yet practical, stacked cartilage piercings are perfect to match these Capricorn personality traits. Whether you’re going for a chic look and want to get matching shiny studs, you want stacked helix rings for a more minimalist look, or you are a bit more ambitious and want to get a bunch of stacked helix piercings along the outer cartilage, much like Kylie Jenner has been known to sport, there is a range of sensible options to choose from.
