For decades piercings in India have been adorned by both men and women. While women wore ear, belly and nose piercings, men like those in Rajasthan flaunted earpieces to show off strength, valour and a sense of royalty. Over the past few years, the interpretation has changed; piercings in men now have a more carefree undertone, to showcase character- whether it is the ear, nose or eyebrow piercing. Men are now adventurous and are trying spacer plugs instead of normal earrings. Pop culture has played an incessant role which has subsequently created a form of art to showcase one's own personality which is accentuated with great looking jewellery that is available in the market.
So if you are looking for your first piercing and want it to be stunning, this article is for you.
The 5 Sexiest Piercings for Men
Here are the top 5 sexiest piercings according to Mr Piercer. An artist who has been practising piercing in India and all over Europe for the last 17 years, Mr Piercer is also credited as one of the oldest and best piercers in India, with clientele and students from all over the country.
The Septum Piercing
A septum piercing is a type of nose piercing. The piercing goes through the area between your nostrils which is called the Nasal Septum. The jewellery used is generally in a horseshoe shape but can also be a bar or a hoop. It is also commonly referred to as the Bull Nose Piercing when a piece of hoop-shaped jewellery is used.
The Tongue Piercing
A tongue piercing is made directly through the centre of the tongue. The tongue piercing is a popular piercing that has made a comeback in recent years. Tongue piercings are discreet piercings and have a charm like no other.
The Nostril Piercing
Nose piercings are quite trendy for both men and women. They have a tendency of bringing attention to your face. Even the smallest jewellery will be noticed and will give your face an aesthetic and edgy appeal. These piercings are quite easy to get done and will heal quickly too.
The Eyebrow Piercing
An eyebrow piercing made somewhere on the eyebrow is quite subtle and desirable for men. An eyebrow piercing will give your face a rather fun and funky look. Post the healing process, changing the jewellery can add to your aesthetic and give you a sexy edge if done right. With the eyebrow piercing, placement matters most and must be discussed with your piercer before making the piercing.
Curated piercing is an art form. It involves multiple piercings that compliment each other and the shape of your ear. These piercings are unique to each ear and can never be identical. These piercings can be sporadic all over the year, along the entire edge or they can be clustered together. Even the type of jewellery you choose can be carried. This type of piercing looks great and brings out the contours of each ear.
