Looking for a new spin on your old piercings? Look no further. We’ve got the goods on the latest innovations that are bringing seasoned piercings up to date, and how your old jewelry is being worn in amazing new ways.
The bridge piercing is relatively new to the scene, but even in its infancy innovations are already coming through. For an updated look check out the double bridge piercing, and the vertical bridge or “third eye.”
Ear piercing is by far the oldest know type of body piercing, with mummies from ancient Egypt discovered still wearing earrings. Gauging or stretching those piercings is thousands of years old as well, but some of the fun new ways to wear ear piercing jewelry are spicing up this ancient tradition and giving it a modern spin. Here we have a BCR worn through a tunnel, dangling pierced earrings worn through a tunnel, and even multiple gauged ear holes spun through with a spiral barbell. These folks are definitely keeping their look fresh.
Even in lip piercings new trends are emerging. From regular lip rings, to snake bites, and now the double lip hoop is having its day. This trend is less interesting and exciting, but it certainly gives a new, modern twist to the good old lip piercing. And two, or even three lip piercings placed extremely close together when worn in a single color gives a neat, almost stripy effect to the piercing.
Innovation in the world of piercing and body jewelry is continuing to spread, and I can’t wait to see what piercers and those who are modified come up with next!
