With the new year comes the perfect time to shake up your style. Why not do so with fresh ear piercings? To get you started, here are some piercing types that are foreseen to become a hit this year. A word of advice: It gets addicting real fast—so don’t say we didn’t warn you.
The Year of the Ear Piercings
What’s everyone been interested in these days? Here’s an idea: the keyword Ear Piercings had a 565% increase in 'saves' over the past year. So it seems like we're going to be keeping things on the ear this year.
This one refers to a stud placed directly above your first or second lobe piercing, or even high-up between the two. It’s fast becoming popular because if you’ve got a piercing that has grown down from wearing heavy earrings or that was low to begin with, it makes the deliberate look to punctuate really high and double-up.
The New Daith
This type of piercing involves the small flap of the ear in front, and slightly below, the daith. The best part about this is that it doesn't go out the back of the ear. That also means it’s easier to heal because it doesn't get bumped as often and far easier to keep clean.
Consider piling up piercings along the side of your ear. But don’t stop at your run-of-the-mill lobe piercings—stack them in pairs or cluster them in threes!
A bestseller last 2018, this type of piercing shows no signs of stopping its popularity anytime soon. The placement for this is between the helix and the conch.
Similar to a cuff, the pin hooks over the top of your ear, and the other end fastens into your pierced lobe, giving a safety pin illusion.
