New Piercings for the New Year

getting new mods for 2014“Kiki,” by Tristan Savatier

Now that the holidays are finally coming to a close and life is a little less hectic and demanding, everybody’s minds are probably turning to one thing: the new year.  If you’re anything like me, you’ll be thinking about New Year’s resolutions, going shopping with all those gift cards (score!), and of course what new mods you want this year.

Two new tattoos and some ear piercings are on my list, but for those who aren’t sure exactly what they want, here’s some things I’ve seen recently that are super cool, still pretty rare, and definitely bound to be serious contenders in 2014.  Hope you like them as much as I do!

The Transverse Lobe Piercing

It’s basically like a horizontal ear lobe piercing; it goes sideways through the lobe.  The really great thing about these is that they can be done even if you already have a regular earlobe piercing, or in some cases, even if you have several.  Stretched lobes can be worked with sometimes too, and there are some who have purposely pierced through well-healed stretch mods to create a really unique look.  Pretty neat, right?

The Lip Surface

These are called by a few different names including “lip surface piercing,” and “horizontal lip piercing,” but no matter what you call it they’re fairly new and interesting.  Unlike a traditional surface piercing, they’re usually worn with a small curved barbell, but variations have recently started to emerge.  Whether you have other lip piercings already, or just want something a little different, this type of lip piercing is pretty sweet.

The Rhino

 vertical nose tip piercings

Although they’re not completely new, rhino piercings are definitely still one of the rarest nose piercings.  The nice thing about being around a while though, is that all sorts of styles have started popping up.  There’s even rhinos being done as single point piercings, which is a cuter, more feminine version that looks great on women.

What do you want to get in 2014?  Let me know if you’ve got any cool or really unique ideas!
