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 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.

Besides the ears, another types of piercings most people have seen on passers by are nose or eyebrow piercings. They have been constantly growing in popularity. The nose piercing does require extra care due to the amount 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 too 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 upper lip), angel or snake bite (opposite sides of the upper lip), smiley (upper frenulum above front too teeth) and frowny(it is the opposite of smiley i.e. it is located near the bottom teeth.
While most generally jewelry used for piercings as rings, the body jewelry available for these piercings include rings, studs, posts and barbells. Eyebrows or ears lend themselves for display of dangling body jewelry while nose and mouth stick to rings, posts or studs.
