You recently may have noticed that surface piercings are becoming a commonplace body modification, but what do we do once standard body piercings start to become old news? Simple. Put them in the most interesting places possible, like the hands. Hand, finger, and lower wrist piercings are becoming the neatest, most interesting trend in years, and surprisingly enough, the most versatile as well.
Starting with piercings of the fingers, this new piercing style quickly moved from standard surface bars, onto dermals that emulated diamond solitaire rings, and finally to…
…well, I’m not really sure what this is called, but I like it.
As a contrast to the more mainstreamed look, some even started piercing the underside of their fingers instead, usually worn with a horseshoe that fits around the finger like a makeshift piece of adjustable fashion jewelry. Then it was piercing of the thumb rather than ring finger or middle finger that had it’s day.
Now the funnest thing seems to be piercing of the hand “webs,” the areas of flesh between your fingers. Web piercings first started showing up in the large, thin area between thumb and forefinger, being pierced with either a barbell, horseshoe, or BCR.
Then they gradually made their way to the remainder of the finger webbings, and even upwards onto the area of skin between the knuckles.
Piercings at the top of the wrist or back of the hand followed as well, and there you have it.
Wanna rock the hand piercing trend without the pain and healing time? Go for the next best thing: fingernail piercings. Whether the nails are real or fake, a nice coat of lacquer and some small, cheap captive rings, and you’re in business. No trip to the piercer required.
