Last year, the rook piercing was popular but now the forward helix is a rising trend. The forward helix is a cartilage piercing situated above the tragus, where the ear meets the face. You can wear a ring, barbell, or banana bar in this piercing and it’s a really cute look for girls or guys.

We have seen a rise in teenage girls at our piercing studio requesting smaller gauge jewelry in pinks and purple with diamante balls, taking septum piercing from biker to babe this year. Worn by celebrities such as Scarlett Johansson, an added bonus is that the septum piercing can easily be hidden by turning your jewelry upwards into the nose or by wearing a retainer to keep the flesh tunnel open.

Located where the outer labia meet below the pubic mound, this intimate piercing does not offer any thrills with its placement but it looks very pretty all the same. This is a surface piercing, often performed with a curved barbell or surface bar, and is a good alternative if you do not have the right anatomy for a hood piercing. The downside is that it can take 3-4 months to heal and due to the placement Christina piercings are often rejected.

Back dimple piercing is popular with teenagers right now, probably due to the fact that you need a slim physique to do this look any justice. The back dimples are located on the lower back where the body dips in either side. A small micro dermal gem is the preferred jewelry for this piercing as the movement in this area often causes surface bars to reject. Wearing crop tops and low riders really show this look off, but it is important to consider the placement before jumping right in to have your back dimples pierced. The placement makes them awkward to clean and clothing can snag them causing damage to the piercing site.

Whatever the look you are after, please ensure you think your piercing through carefully and ensure that it will fit your lifestyle. Always visit a reputable studio and research the piercing beforehand. Don’t have a piercing just because it’s in fashion, get a piercing you love that will look great on your body.
