Twist on Tradition – the New State of Ear Piercings

Ear piercings are supposed to be some of the most common piercings on the face of the earth, right?  So I decided to go in search of the fun ways that people were taking these now “old news” piercings and reinventing them.  And some of the neat things I found are anything but ordinary.  Check it out:

fun new ways to wear ear piercings

Happenin’ Helixes

Some of the things that people are doing to decorate their multiple helix piercings are absolutely amazing.  Sometimes it’s hard to tell exactly what types of jewelry are being coordinated together (like with this spiral/stud combo).

Extreme Stretch

It seems that stretching multiple ear piercings, whether in the lobe, helix, or other cartilage areas, is becoming a pretty big trend.  I love the multiple stretched piercings with the spiral barbell wound through, don’t you?

Industrialized Nation

cool new industrial piercing styles

As industrials become more and more common, new sets of industrial style piercing that go through multiple points does too.  Just take a look at the helix-rook-tragus industrial here, and the fun jewelry being worn in verticals (like this cute trident made of an industrial bar and a stylized horseshoe).

In the quest for the coolest ear piercing/jewelry combo, it doesn’t look the race will be over any time soon.
