Piercings have been around for a very long time and archaeological evidence has uncovered body piercings in mummies which are over 5000 years old. Piercings are on trend, but they also have a long history. Lips and tongue piercings belonged to African cultures and American tribes years ago, but the Romans knew a thing or two about nipple piercing. Yet, it’s only in the last twenty five years or so that piercings have become really popular.
One of the prettiest piercings for girls must be a discrete nose piercing with a small diamond which just catches the light but it all depends on preference. One thing to consider is those wishing to find employment may well want to think carefully about how many piercings they may wish to have on public display. But a subtle stud can look extremely attractive as it catches the light.
With the right stomach on show too, navel piercing can look extremely attractive and is actually quite common amongst young girls and often causes a second look, which after all, is what is intended. A delicate bar with pretty stones can really accentuate tanned skin too.
Back in 2005 a survey conducted on just over 10000 people aged over 16 found that 10% were in possession of body piercings in places other than ears and women made up 42% of this statistic. The navel was actually the most popular site and it is interesting to note that those with plenty of less traditional piercing were probably most likely to be involved with counterculture too. Certainly lip, eyebrow and face piercings do tend to express a desire to be different.
Tongue piercings have been considered very attractive in girls and the quick flash of metal glinting momentarily is very sexy and there are plenty of styles to choose from which will create exactly the right impression for individual taste.
Certainly with the development of hypoallergenic body piercing jewellery has helped to make piercings safer and they can be used to celebrate a landmark event or birthday which is also a neat way for parents or guardians to become involved and even supervise piercing sessions if they have any concerns or hope to offer some advice without sounding critical.
Eyebrows have come into and fallen out of fashion, although they can look quite pretty but need to be carefully sited and the jewellery also carefully considered. Therefore the top five piercings for girls are: ears, noses, tongues, navel and eyebrows.
So if you are thinking about a new piercing and want to explore other options than traditional earlobes it’s worth checking out just what options and jewellery are available and actually do some research so that you can be satisfied your choice is the prettiest and most attractive it can be.
