Piercing Trends of 2019

Can you believe that 2018 is already almost over?! It feels like the year just started! But we’re quickly approaching 2019, which means what’s popular this year, might not be popular next year! Trends come and go so quickly these days, and sometimes it feels like it’s hard to keep up. So we’re breaking down what we think will be the piercing trends of 2019. Take a look at what will be all the rage next year!

Ear Piercings

Lets start off with the most common place to get a piercing – the ear. Some of these are currently trending, but will only continue to grow in popularity over the next year. So here are the ear piercing trends of 2019!

The helix piercing is poppin’ right now. It’s super fashionable and can be worn with many different types of jewelry! You can wear hoops, studs, captive bead rings, and so much more in this piercing. You can get one, a double, or triple helix. Cartilage piercings do tend to take longer to heal, so keep that in mind when you get yours done! But don’t let that steer you away. The helix is versatile, and will definitely be one to watch in 2019!

Tragus

Oh tragus, how we love thee! This simple, yet amazing piercing, is a current favorite of our clients. It’s one of the most popular piercings that our piercers get asked to do! And we can see why. The tragus can be elegant with just a simple gem or plain stud, or you can dress it up with something fancy. We have quite a selection of tragus jewelry in the shops, so once yours is healed up, make sure to come check out what we have! The tragus is without a doubt one of the piercing trends of 2019 to keep an eye on!

On The Rise

These two piercings will be the ones to watch in 2019. The piercing on the left is a snug. It’s just above the anti-tragus, and is rising in popularity. It’s pierced using a curved barbell, and it can be changed out to some really cute jewelry once it’s healed.

The piercing on the ring is called a “Shen Men” piercing. It’s similar to the daith piercing, in that it’s supposed to have healing properties. The shen men is a point in the ear that acupuncturist’s say control anxiety. If you suffer from anxiety, this might be one to consider!

Facial Piercings

Septums were all the rage over the last year or so, but they’re slowly phasing out. Now it’s all about the nostril piercing. While the nostril hasn’t really ever gone out of style, it’s being done in different ways now! You can get a single, simple nostril piercing, or double it up on one side. You can also get one on each side of the nose! The minimalistic nostril jewelry is in, but you can get extra fancy with a gem top or a hoop. It’s best to switch to a hoop after your nostril piercing has fully healed.

Body Piercings

Nipples

Nipple piercings are making waves! Women and men of all ages and sizes are adorning their nips. The options for nipple jewelry are ENDLESS! You want mermaid nipples? BAM! Put some shell rings on. Want something fancy?? We’ve got you. How about something funny? We’ve got vampire teeth and handcuff rings! Having your nipples pierced is like a little secret that gives you an extra boost of confidence. This will without a doubt be a piercing trend of 2019.

Navel

The belly ring, as it’s so lovingly called, went out of style with thongs and blue eyeshadow back in the 90s. But thanks to some celebrity buzz, it’s been making a comeback in the last year or so. And it’s not just for petit, young ladies anymore! Women and men of all ages and sizes are getting a navel piercing. Similar to the nipple piercing, it’s a secret little piercing that gives you a sense of confidence. A navel piercing does take a while to heal, so keep that in mind.
