If you have a piercing, you know they rock, but if you’re still over there in just-have-my-ears-pierced land, you’re looking over the white picket fence and wondering if the grass is just a little more badass on this side.
The answer is yes, my little turtle dove, and it’s time you joined the dark side, because piercings are f$*king awesome. Here’s what you’re missing out on.
#1 – Sex Appeal
Oh hello, it’s just me over here, with my sexy little lip ring I just can’t stop flicking with my tongue.
Piercings are hopelessly sexy – they invite people to take a closer look, to notice the subtleties of your anatomy and explore further. Whether it’s a guy with the bump of a nipple ring under a tight t-shirt, or the glimmer of steel in a girl’s mouth when she laughs, there’s a certain sexy intrigue that makes people with piercings just a tiny bit more irresistible.
#2 – Being Unique
“But people will staaare.” – Let ’em look.
Getting piercings means being so confident in your own skin that you dare to be different, it’s the bee’s knees feeling that on top of the world. Whether your look is edgy or preppy, when you get a piercing, you’re redefining how other people sum you up and challenging the social status quo.
Piercings are a statement of your fearless embrace of who you are, following the radical idea of self-love, and adorning your body like the temple that it is.
Just try and stereotype me, beyatch.
#3 – Sparkles
Remember in the 90s when stick on jewels were all the rage? Man, I miss those days.
*immediately starts looking for some on eBay*
Sparkles and glitter, haters be damned, are the bee’s knees, and piercings let you put the bling anywhere you can hack the pain. They look particularly killer under the flashing lights of a club setting, and on a sunny day, you’re a beam of sunshine all your own.
#4 – Bombdotcom Accessories
When you get hooked on piercings, normal jewelry and accessories just feel…kinda boring. Sure, layered chokers are adorbs, but it’s just not the same. There’s a certain intimacy that body jewelry has to it, no matter how innocent the location of the piercing and the jewelry you wear with it sets off the look in ways even the raddest jewelry just can’t.
#5 – Bikini Season
Belly button pierced babes rejoice – bikini season is upon us, and it’s time to let it all hang out. There’s nothing sexier that defining your beachside look with a crazy beautiful belly button ring.
