The VMA’s are known every year for shocking and entertaining the masses. From controversy to fashion, people all over the world tune in to see what kind of fabulous their favorite celebrities will bring to the red carpet each year.
We’ve compiled a brief list of a few favorite modified celebrities for your viewing pleasure.
We’re dubbing Rihanna our new favorite queen. Outside of her amazing talent, the girl’s got body mods we just can’t get enough of! Tattoos, multiple ear piercings, her septum and the newest addition to her collection seems to be a nipple piercing. Her laid back style (if you caught her all pink outfit on the VMA’s last night) with a twist makes us feel all kinds of cozy, but this girl can do sexy bad ass just as well. Fashion #goals… anyone?
Isn’t it great to see Britney back after all these years?! And looking absolutely great, we must add. Britney’s past VMA looks have proved to be shocking and wonderful. Think belly piercings, belly chains, and tons of sparkling gems. Even her older and more sophisticated style still boasts an “I’ve got it, I’m gonna flaunt it” attitude. It’s no coincidence that she’s inspired some pierced and proud babe’s out there.
Christina’s piercings may be a thing of the past, but no one’s going to forget that easily. Tongue piercing, loads of ear piercings, nose, lip… phew! Also known to rock the nipple ring, Christina took is a step further. Scandal broke out around her intimate piercing at one point. What’s more inspirational than being a woman who’s not afraid to get a little bit “Dirrty”!? (Sadly, she’s since then removed nearly all of her mods, but we still love her for them nonetheless.) PS – Colorful clip-in extensions. That’s some style inspiration we still stand behind!
Let’s take a second to appreciate the body modified dudes of celebrity culture. Stretched lobes, earrings, tattoos. He’s also in on the nipple piercing trend, too! It may not be much of a stretch (pun intended) when you consider his grunge rock brethren, but proving that piercings and tattoos can be a well respected part of mainstream culture for men is iconic.
And we’re back to the bad ass females. Amber’s no stranger to controversy, and her bold nipple piercings are the perfect compliment to her give no f*#%s attitude. Her celeb spotlight is often drowned out by lovers past (Kanye and Wiz Khalifa), but we think it’s great to point out Amber’s strength! Women empowering other women, and doing it with style that screams confidence and pride? We’re on board.
