Matt Reeves’ The Batman came out in March, and since then there’s been a surge in the daith piercing’s popularity. Previously, Catwoman has been played by Eartha Kitt, Michelle Pfeiffer, Anne Hathaway, and Halle Berry. Each of these women actresses portrayed Catwoman with a unique, signature style. And just like her predecessors, Zoe Kravitz’s Selina Kyle has a unique style that can only be described as “less femme fatale, and more badass than it has ever been” to fit in with the noir direction Matt Reeves gave the movie.
So, if you want to ditch the femme fatal for the badass, keep reading on to learn how a daith piercing can unleash your inner Catwoman.
Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman Costume
In the most recent Batman movie of the DC Extended Universe, Zoe Kravitz actually had a lot of input into the costuming. Working with designer Jaqueline Durran, they made sure that all of Catwoman’s costumes would showcase her dangerous, rock star edge.
When it comes to the particular jewelry she wore in the movie, all of it is intentionally designed to make her look tough and practical. It can double as weaponry if needed.
No matter whether she’s wearing a simple white tank top and slim pants or her famed catsuit, Kravitz’s Catwoman exudes sex, danger, and an all-around badass.
How a Daith Piercing Can Unleash Your Inner Badass
One of the coolest things about the daith piercing is the fact that it’s subtle and showy at the same time. Located on the inner part of the ear, below the rook, it is a central part of the ear and does stand out. However, you can downplay the jewelry for a subtler look, or go really crazy with the jewelry for a more rock ‘n roll-inspired look.
Here are some of our recommendations for pieces that we think Catwoman would sport:
Heart Spiked Daith Ring
This piece is still feminine with its heart shape, but the spikes give it that certain edge that we think Selina Kyle would love.
Gold Kitty Cat Seamless Ring
While this might be, admittedly, a little too on the nose for Catwoman, we are suckers for the spooky-noir vibes the cat gives off and think it matches the aesthetic of the recent Batman movie. It’s the eyes. Plus, the gold will make this piece stand out against any skin tone. However, if you want to give it more of an edge, it also comes in all black.
Black Spiked Hinged Segment Ring
This one screams Catwoman to us. Talk about tactical jewelry, this ring can definitely be used as some kind of weaponry with the sharp spikes on it. And while we aren’t suggesting you wear it with such purpose, you have a secret self-defense advantage.
Centered Gem Hinged Segment Ring
The recent Batman movie gives us more insight into Selina Kyle’s origin and doesn’t depict Selina as the cat burglar she is known as. That being said, we all know Catwoman can’t resist a jewel. That’s why we think this piece would be right up her alley. It features multiple gems, framed with beads. It’s sure to be a head-turner.
Bam! Zap! Pow!
Catwoman is a complex character. She’s an antihero, a certified badass, a jewel thief, a crime fighter, a cat lover, and more. But it’s the intersection of these characteristics that are why she’s so beloved. The latest version, played by Zoe Kravitz, is a darker, more empowered, and badass Catwoman, and we are here for it.
There’s a badass dwelling within you too. Getting a daith piercing may be just the first step to unleashing it. And just know, while the character is named Catwoman, being a crime-fighting badass can apply to all genders.
