Were earrings the only jewelry you thought you could wear above the neckline? On the contrary, the number of options for piercings today can help draw attention to your face in an attractive fashion.
While piercings have existed historically, the professional procedures used today are relatively safe and painless, thus making it a good option for those who like to explore what they do to their skin and face. Moreover, piercings may help add to your looks, providing a trendy edge, and you can leave them without jewelry when you no longer want them.
While ears continue to be the most popular place for piercing for men, women, and children alike, multiple ear piercing going right through the ear lobe to the tragus have been trending for a while. Almost everyone has seen at least one person with a series of piercings going up against their ear. With so many piercing options available, the ear remains a popular and obvious choice, especially for those who are not too experimental with their overall appearance. Thus, the most easily available body jewelry with a wide range of choices to select from is for your ears; from earrings to studs, there’s never a time when you cannot find jewelry for your ears.
Besides the ears, other types of piercings most people have seen on passers-by are nose or eyebrow piercings. They have constantly been growing in popularity. The nose piercing does require extra care due to the number of bacteria associated with the nose. While the conventional nose piercings were on the sides of the nostrils, you might come across the piercings on the septum (between the two nostrils). Nose rings and studs are available in a variety of choices. Mostly seen on the outer edge, eyebrow piercings can be along any part of the eyebrow. They are extremely fashionable at the moment and have been much a trend with both men and women. Eyebrow piercing, however, tends to close really fast and must not be left without jewelry for even as long as 48 hours.
Besides the conventional ear and nose piercings, the mouth area provides for quite some space for trendy piercings. While some people might get their cheeks pierced or even their tongue, the more popular ones include the labret (below the lip and above the chin), Monroe (named after Marilyn Monroe, off-center of the upper lip), angel or snake bite (opposite sides of the upper lip), smiley (upper frenulum above front to teeth) and frowny(it is the opposite of smiley, i.e., it is located near the bottom teeth.
While most generally jewelry is used for piercings as rings, the body jewelry available for these piercings includes rings, studs, posts, and barbells. Eyebrows or ears lend themselves to the display of dangling body jewelry while nose and mouth stick to rings, posts, or studs.
