Body Jewelry Face Off – Facial Piercings & New Trends

Facial piercings are cool and really happening (if there are no cuts, bruises or infections). Traditional facial piercings included conventional areas that did not raise many eyebrows. However the new trends in facial piercings are not just about raising eyebrows but shocking you! If you thought labret piercing, nose, nose septum, eyebrows piercing, ear lobes were rebellious enough then you probably didn’t see this coming.

The new trends in facial piercings shining these days are:

Philtrum or Medusa PiercingBody jewelry in this one is attractively perched at the small cleft between the upper lip and the nose. Now snakes has nothing to do with it. It’s also a mere speculation that Medusa had her philtrum pierced.

Monroe or Madonna Piercing – This was perhaps invented by those for who thought moles were sexy and stunning. Imagine having a shiny body jewelry piece lighting up your face instead of  a dark mole. Many body piercing fanatics have found quite a like for such facial piercing. Small body jewelry pieces are pierced in areas around the face where moles are commonly found.

The Anti-Eyebrow Piercing – In this a two-surface body piercing jewelry piece is involved. And as the name typically suggests, this piercing is not about piercing eyebrows but lies diametrically opposing them – below the eye. Usually the first corner is near the corner of the eye and the second is farther back down – like tear drops falling. Sounds like a tear-jerker? Well it isn’t really and has found a place in the book of cool body piercings.

Alright so now you know what’s new in the facial piercing circuit and may be already twitching to try these asap. But keep in mind that facial piercings are (obviously) in your face-obvious, so if you are a professional with a piercing impulse then you may just want to take a moment to think. Others – who have already taken the body piercing plunge and want to go deeper to come out shinier than ever – will find it interesting (if already not tried).

Until then keep up the shine and safety while getting pierced.

Double Eyebrow Piercing – Twice the Attitude

Eyebrow piercing is one of the first off the usual body piercing trends. After navel, ear and nose, it’s eyebrow piercing that is perhaps most common and sought after. And now there’s a unique innovation in eyebrow piercing too – Double eyebrow piercing. It looks funkier, smarter and more daring then your regular eyebrow piercing.

Double eyebrow piercing means two body jewelry pieces  or two piercings through the eyebrow. And the great thing about it, people already having a single eyebrow piercing can go for another too to get the double bling.

What’s Double Eyebrow Piercing All About?

Some people go for vertical piercings in which the piercings are next-to-each-other. Others get horizontal piercings one beside another (especially those who already have a single piercing done). The trend is fast catching up and will soon cease to be a rarity. Right from  barbells, wires to rings all sorts of feasible  body jewelry can be used for double eyebrow piercing.

Say, you go for horizontal eyebrow piercing placed side to side, above the eyebrow, then you would have four barbells visible. Or one could even try the one above and one below the eyebrow piercing for that killer style.

Whichever you choose just make sure that it goes well with your face and personalty.

P.S – The double eyebrow piercing is a great way to set yourself apart from the crowd! So go ahead take it on!
