Latest Body Piercing Trends For 2021

New looks.

Are you looking for a new ear piercing idea? Perhaps you are looking to have a piercing in a completely different part of your body? In the following post, we are going to look at some of the latest and greatest body piercing trends, so that you can look cool and sexy and still on-trend throughout 2021 and beyond.

Before we jump into the list, it is worth remembering that it is important to choose a reputable piercing salon, like The End Is Near Brooklyn, to make sure you don’t have any nasty infections to fight off while you are waiting for your new holes to heal. 

Conch Piercing

The conch, for the uninitiated of you reading this is the inner curve of an ear. This is still a very fresh and new part of the ear to have piercings but has gained a lot of popularity in recent years. Conch piercings are either placed on the outer or inner part of the conch. Although it takes longer to heal and requires more care and attention, it is still an undeniably attractive piercing. 

Navel Piercings

Navel piercings have been popular for a long time now, but they have an enduring appeal that sees more people getting them each year. The main issues with navel piercings, however, are that they are incredibly prone to infections and can be irritating when they catch on clothing. With the right level of care and cleaning routine, they are such a sexy way to decorate a rather plain and uninspiring part of the body.

Daith Piercing

If you are looking to take your ear piercing game up a level, why not consider a Daith piercing. This involves having a piercing passed through the innermost fold of cartilage of your ear, called the crus of the helix. Generally, people tend to use captive bead rings for this piercing, but circular barbells and seamless rings work well too. 

Nipple Piercings

The mere mention of nipple piercings seems to raise many people’s eyebrows, even now. However, this is a fun and daring piercing you can get without even having it on display all the time. If you are worried about how unsafe they are, we would argue that they are not any more unsafe or uncomfortable than normal piercings. If you look after them and keep them clean, they shouldn’t give you much trouble. 

Tragus Piercing

Ever wanted to know what each part of your ear is called? You may be surprised that the little piece of cartilage that hangs down from your face and covers the ear canal has a name – the tragus. Having a piercing here is a great way to do something a bit more adventurous without being too obvious about it. Some people have got outlandish tragus piercings, whereas others opt for the more try and spot” or blink and you’ll miss it” style of jewelry addition.

Industrial Piercing 

Sticking with the ears, as so many of the popular piercings seem to be placed, for what is called an industrial piercing. Other names you may see describing this include the scaffold and bar piercing. It is basically a single piece of straight jewelry connected between two pierced holes. Normally you will see industrial piercings in the cartilage of the upper ear. 

The important thing to remember about this piercing is that it is going to take a while to heal. As much as 6 months to be exact. As long as you follow the correct cleaning and maintenance procedure. 

It is a very striking and statement piercing, so if that’s what you are looking for in 2021, then give it a try. 

Helix Piercing

The helix is the top corner of your ear, and as you have probably seen on Insta, Facebook, Twitter, in magazines, and on TV, piercings there have become increasingly popular over the last decade. A cuff or a collection of rings are just two ways to decorate this piercing, so your ears look pretty and sparkly.
