Want To Get An Additional Piercing? Check Out 33 Different Types Of Piercings You Can Choose From

In these modern times, experimenting has become the order of the day. We wake up today and we want our hair to be purple and we go ahead and make it so. We want to change our eye color and we go ahead and get contacts. Now, dieh the order of the day is to pierce any body part. Gone are the days where we used to see piercings as a thing for “bad b*****s”. Now it’s actually really hard to meet a female without at least one additional piercing to the one we normally have on our earlobes. If you were planning on having an additional piercing but didn’t know where exactly to have it, then you’re in luck. Check out 33 *gasp!* body parts people get pierced including the normal ones, the ones which are not so surprising and the flat-out weird ones !

1. Upper Lobe Piercing

This is the first one most people do because it can be done so easily and fast.

2. Auricle Piercing

Auricle piercing refers to the piercing done in the middle part of the outer rim of your ear. There are nerves at that part of the ear so it might be a little painful.

3. Conch Piercing

A conch piercing is when you have the cartilage of the middle portion of your ear pierced. That’s the spot that has the largest area of ear cartilage. It gets its name because this part of the ear looks similar to a conch shell.

4. Helix Piercing

The helix piercings are made on the ear’s upper cartilage but different styles of these piercing exist. There is Single Forward Helix Piercing, Double Forward Helix Piercing, and the Triple Forward Helix Piercing.

5. Industrial Piercing

Industrial piercings are located on the ear. Rather than one single hole, they use two holes through the cartilage of the ear. The two holes are linked together by one barbell.

6. Tragus Piercing

If you’re looking for something different, these fit the bill. They aren’t as popular as helix or conch piercings are, but they are every bit as cool.  The tragus is the area located in front of your ear canal. Most people are able to get a tragus piercing without any issues. On the other hand, if you have an unusually thin tragus, you might not be able to get your tragus pierced. It could simply be too thin to support the weight and pull of the jewelry.

7. Rook Piercing

A Rook Piercing is a perforation of the antihelix of the ear for the purpose of wearing jewelry.

8. Orbital Piercing

This is absolutely different from the other piercings since it involves two perforations that are connected with a ring jewelry, forming like an orbit of the earth. This is the main reason why it is called this way. When talking about its location, it is exactly done on the helix region of the ears. However, it can also be done on your earlobes, in case you want to.

9. Eyebrow Piercings

10. Cheek piercings

11. Eye Lid Piercing

12. Nostril Piercing

13. Bridge Piercings

They are a surface piercing done through the skin found at the top of the nose, right between the eyes or slightly lower.

14. Septum Piercings

Septum piercings go in the center of the tip of your nose – right between the nostrils. Thanks to the bit of skin you have on the end of your nose, your piercer won’t have to go through cartilage to pierce your septum. It will go through the skin on one side and right out the other side while going beneath the cartilage that separates your nostrils.

15. Mid-Line Tongue Piercings

Mid-line tongue piercings are the most often chosen tongue piercing type that is typically close to the center (horizontally) and about 1.9 cm in from the tip of the tongue.

16. Frenulum Linguae Piercings

They are done through the frenulum located beneath the tongue, usually accessorized by a ring.

17. Tongue Venom Piercings

They typically use a curved barbell so that when the tongue is stuck out, it looks like the head of a snake with the eyes staring out.

18. Uvula Piercings

They are uncommon but involve numbing the back of the throat and the uvula, and care must be taken once it is installed concerning rejection, discomfort and tearing at this point in the throat.

19. Smiley Piercing

It’s a piercing through the skin between the upper lip and the gums.

20. Angel Bites Piercing

They appear symmetrically on either side of the ridged or curved areas over your mouth called the philtrum.

21. Snake Bite Piercings

Snakebite piercings are two evenly separated lower lip piercings that appear on the left and right sides of the lower lip.

22. Viper Bites Piercings

Are a pair of closely placed, off-center piercings that sit on either the left or right of the bottom lip at a slight angle. Spider bites and viper bites piercings are recommended to be done one at a time, with the second being done after the first completely heals, as they are considered more painful than other lip piercings.

23. Canine Bite Piercing

They are four total piercings that look to be a combination of angel bite piercings and snake bite piercings. Canine bites piercings are located symmetrically in a square around the mouth.

24. Cyber Bites Piercing

This is a combination of a labret piercing and a medusa piercing, both of which are pretty interesting on their own. The appearance of cyber bite piercings should be in line with each other, one in the middle of the upper lip, just above the cupid’s bow and the other just below the lower lip.

25. Medusa Piercing

It is centered above the cupid’s bow, between the middle of the upper lip and the bottom of the nose called the philtrum region.

26. Jestrum Piercings

It is done on the top lip, pierced from the philtrum of the upper lip right under the nasal septum, but uses a curved barbell so that both ends of the piercing can be seen externally on the top and bottom of the upper lip.

27. Chest Piercings

They are put anywhere from the clavicle to the ribs. These can be done as micro dermal piercings or sometimes as a surface piercing with a bar that has 2 protruding ends.

29. Neck Dermal Piercings

They are placed on the nape of the neck. Some put them on the side of the neck and in many cases in multiples.

30. Wrist and Finger Piercings

These dermal piercings are not often recommended even though they are popular because both fingers and wrists are in constant use and with the day or so of swelling involved with the piercing, this can make normal activities uncomfortable.

32. Navel Piercings

Navel piercings (often mistakenly called belly button piercings) involve piercing the skin around the belly button. The most traditional navel piercing is done just above the belly button on the ring of skin surrounding it. Note that the actual belly button isn’t pierced.

33. Nipple Piercings

Nipples are typically pierced horizontally, but they may also be pierced vertically or even at an angle. Straight barbells make the best starter jewelry for most people, although your piercer may recommend a curved barbell based on your anatomy.
