Jewelry is for women and women alone, at least according to beliefs which were prevalent some decades back. Things are different now. Contemporary men have ushered in the new age and are proud of their body piercings and jewelry. Men now flaunt different jewelry pieces which adorn their many piercings. Body jewelry and piercings are no longer a woman’s world!
Ear piercings are the most common, even when it comes to men. With so many different styles and jewelry pieces to choose from, it is no wonder that there are so many men out there sporting all kinds of ear piercings and body jewelry.
Male body piercings have now progressed much beyond just the earlobes. It is not uncommon to see men with their nose pierced in several places, with a stud or a ring making it definitely noticeable. Eyebrows, septum, lips, tongue, nipples, genitals, all are equally pierced by man and women. While some piercings remain more common than others, trends are fast catching up. Navel piercings are probably the only ones which are seen much more on women than men (we do come across one or two males with navel studs though).
Body piercing styles differ from culture to culture and country to country. Male body piercings first started in the African and Indian cultures, and in these places they are still a commonality. In western cultures, piercings were first introduced by people who engaged in alternative lifestyle. Men associated with the music and fashion industry were probably the first ones to experiment with piercings. With the trend at an all time high today, it is not uncommon for gentlemen of all ages and professions to sports piercings, and to do it very proudly.
Witnessing the growing popularity of male body piercings, jewelry manufacturers are now coming up with more and more pieces for men. Jewelry is no longer all delicate, flowery and dainty. There are pieces which are specifically for males, like some of these.
Jewelry is now as much for men as they are for women!
