I can remember going to get my ears pierced with my mom and grandmother. I was so excited and loved having the big responsibility of taking care of my new piercings, even if they were just tiny little fake ruby studs from Claires. Since then, I’ve gotten my earlobes pierced again and had my cartilage pierced once on each ear. Each time I get my ears pierced for another time, I worry that my parents will be mad at me but they’re actually OK with it; “just no body piercings, all right?” is what my mom always says.
I’d never even thought of piercing any part of my body, except maybe my nose. Lately, I’d been thinking the body piercing trend was “out,” until I stumbled upon a huge collection of creepy piercing photos.
Apparently piercing random parts of your body is still in style. And I don’t mean places like your eyebrow or bellybutton–I’m talking your back, chest and hipbones, neck, etc. I can’t even imagine what my horrified face looked like as I scrolled through photos of so many outrageous piercings.
I’m all for doing whatever you want with your body and that includes tattoos, hair color, piercings, etc. But I honestly just don’t see what the appeal is for some of these piercings.
Lovelies, what do you think of this body piercing trend?
