Multiple Piercings – How Many is Too Many?

We’ve all seen the latest craze in body piercing: multiple piercings in different places.

With so many new and interesting piercings popping up all the time, it’s hard not to want to try some of them out, and many of us will attempt a new piercing whether or not we keep it because (let’s face it) you won’t be sure if you like it or not until you try.

Piercing combinations, especially in the face and ears, are practically endless.  There’s nostril piercings, septum piercings, bridge piercings, vertical bridge piercings, lip piercings, labret piercings, monroe piercings, tongue piercings, eyebrow piercings, anti-eyebrow piercings, and many others, just on the face alone.

For the most part, this trend is beautiful, provocative, and interesting, but when piercings begin to reach excess, many have been recently asking, “how much is too much?” and where do we draw the line?

Tons of facial piercings

The answer?  It really depends.  Some who have multiple piercings may be ascribing to a different aesthetic than what’s currently mainstream.  Just check out our friend here.  Several large, gauged piercings worn with plugs may appear odd to some people, but the smile on his face tells me he’s pleased as punch with this interesting look.  And who are we to disagree?

And look at this gorgeous set of multiple ear piercings.  Recognize this famous female ear?

Kate Moss's Multiple Ear Piercings

It’s Kate Moss!  And she’s not the only celebrity who has a serious love of ear piercings.  Scarlett Johansson, Miley Cyrus, and Rihanna all have several piercings as well, along with a ton of other celebs both male and female.

So when it comes to multiple facial piercings, it’s still a matter of beauty being in the eye of the beholder, and at least for now, we can keep the hollow needles coming.

    I pretty much agree with this. Tons of piercings, like way too many, is something I would never do, but what matters is that you are pleased with yourself and how you look, and if you like how it looks then all the more power to you.
