I Heart Valentines Day – Hearts and Piercing Culture

Valentines Day is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than by having a virtual party featuring one of my favorite things: the heart!

Alternative Valentines Day

Hearts and piercing culture have long been interwoven, especially in the world of pierced retro pinups and fabulously fun scene girls.  A symbol of romance, sweetness, and youthful femininity, it’s no wonder that the phrase “we love it,” has been almost entirely replaced by “we heart it.”  And just so everyone knows, I happen to heart hearts!

From dermal piercings, shaped and stretched lobes, and sassy circular lip rings, to body art, color tattoos, and everything else involved in alternative culture, one of the most prevalent and universal motifs in the world and the alt world is the heart.  So much so that all of us seem to love it, even when it’s broken.

So I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ll definitely be spending this Valentine’s Day having a seriously heart filled celebration.  (And a heart shaped box of chocolates might not be so bad either.) ♥
