Fashion and Piercings

Piercings seem new and trendy in the west, but they have existed for centuries in many parts of the world and have stood the test of time in many countries, particularly India. In the 1980s and 1990s, punks took on this piercing, and from there it became popular throughout the entire globe.

Piercings are not only for angry or rebellious teenagers, they can also be worn as a fashion statement. Piercing can also be chosen for simple aesthetic value, to highlight particular areas of the body, as a navel piercing may reflect a woman's satisfaction with the shape and condition of her stomach. Some people pierce, permanently or temporarily, to enhance sexual pleasure because apparently genital and nipple piercings may increase sexual satisfaction. Whatever your reasons, try to find a reputable piercing studio that provide clients with written and verbal aftercare instructions, this website it's very helpful regarding body piercing information and aftercare.

  1. I think closest piercings and haute fashion ever came together is Givenchy haute couture from Spring 2012!



  2. Great post Victoria! Love these shots and even though I only have my ears pierced (though I think even they may have closed over) I always find piercings so visually interesting, especially on someone unexpected :)

    Take care,

  4. I love piercings, I had one in my eyebrow. It was awesome. Unfortunately my job doesn't allow me to have one :( only in places where nobody can see which doesn't satisfy me :)

  5. I don't think that piercings would work on me, but I love seeing them on other people =^.^=

  6. I love piercings had my nose and belly button done in my teens, it was the rebel in me x

  7. These piercings are gorgeous - of course, I would say this as a piercing enthusiast and I think these models add a depth of gorgeousness to this! (Yum)


  8. you're right that piercing has been around a long time. i think it's changed culturally and means different things to different people. it seems more widely accepted in U.S.A. than it use to, but people still have misconceptions, and preconceptions.
