New Piercing Trends – the Valley Piercing

You might be wondering what exactly a valley piercing is, but the second you hear it, the name will automatically make sense to you.  This a surface that rests just over the tailbone; basically, right above the center of your derrière.

Tail Bone Piercing

Much like surface piercings of the hips and abdomen, valley piercing started off relatively slowly before beginning a meteoric rise to the top for one very important reason: function.  The piercing itself and the choice of available surface jewelry make the perfect accent to lower back tattoos, just like surface piercing of the stomach accent tattooing or navel piercings.  And oh what an accent!

Tattoos Accented by Lower Back piercing

Although the majority of valley piercings are simple and discreet, some choices of gems and coloring will definitely make the lower back stand out in a crowd.  Just look at the possibilities!

Different Valley Piercing Jewelry Styles

Because of their location, valleys take slightly longer on average to heal than hip piercings, and the risk of migration or rejection is about on par with piercings meant for corsetry.  But aftercare is fairly mundane, and because this piercing hasn’t hit the mainstream yet in the stricter sense of the word, there’s definitely fun to be had when it gets noticed.  Generally these are worn as either a movable barbell or a dermal.

Now all we need is needles specially made to pierce the tender flesh above our behinds, and there’ll be no limit to the popularity of this interesting and feminine slice of body modification.

Found – Best Holiday Belly Rings

So, everyone wants a little something special and fun to wear for the Holidays that’s unique and different right?  And especially in places where the weather remains above freezing all year long, more and more that special and interesting item is a belly button ring.  Well, in my search for my own amazing Christmas belly jewelry, I came across some of the cutest, most amazing, and one of a kind new styles, and after my journey was over, If figure, why not share?

Christmas Belly Piercing Jewelry

This is hands down one of the neatest new navel jewelry styles I have ever seen, and even though it’s pretty neat and new, there’s already enough of a variety out there that you might just want to grab three or four.  (I know I did.)  It’s called a super spiral, but I called super cute!

Wacky Cool Spiralled Belly Rings

The other new style that I came across that was super Christmasy and super fun involves actual jingle bells hanging from the belly ring.  Now, I know what you’re thinking.  This probably isn’t the most discreet.  But the little bit of noise these beauties give off is actual part of their charm.  It’s really festive.

And last but not least, here are a few new updates of old standards.  Have I mentioned how in love I am with snowflakes?  What could be better for Christmas than a touch of crystal, shine, jingle, and a little snow?
