Piercings have been around for the most of the 21st century, yet unlike other trends that come and go, they’ve remained relevant. They started first as a fashion accessory. Today they are a fashion statement; more importantly, a fashion statement that’s bound to stay in vogue over time.
Looking for a fashion piece that’s guaranteed to remain trendy for years to come? You can’t go wrong with body piercings.
- Piercings are a great way to showcase your personality
Are you the rad type, the calm collected nerd or the reserved introvert, whatever your personality is there’s always a fitting piercing style to match. If you’re nerd looking for some ‘nerdy’ piercing to emphasize this fact, then try the tongue piercing on for size. It’s detailed, sophisticated and unique; just like you. Rad individuals, on the other hand, need a complementing edgy piercing and nothing screams I’m the edgiest kid on the block than a well-executed septum piercing. If you’d rather have a more reserved look, then hitch onto the belly button piercing train.

And that’s putting it lightly. For the most of their existential history, body piercings have been a distinguishing fashion piece. Royals used it as a mark of their royalty, the rich used it to demonstrate their affluence and even today celebrities adorn with piercings to remain at the center stage of paparazzi camera shutters. Want to be the center of attraction at your next social event? A nose, tragus or daith piercing will go a long way in making you stand out from the rest
