Just when you think you’ve seen it all… here are some piercings that will leave you collecting your jaws. I’ve seen many who try to impress with their a million piercings that are all what we are used to. So why not get these unique one’s? PS: you’ll only need one.
The Valley piercing.
You might be wondering what exactly a valley piercing is, but the second you hear it, the name will automatically make sense to you. This a surface that rests just over the tailbone; basically, right above the center of your derrière.
The Transverse Lobe.
Tired of the same old ear piercings? If you are looking to get a less common ear piercing that looks cool and has minimal pain then this might be the one for you. A transverse, or horizontal, lobe piercing is an ear piercing that is done the long way on the earlobe instead of piercing from front to back. The length of the piercing is parallel to the sagittal plane, or vertical plane, of the lobe. The transverse piercing does not pierce the cartilage, but goes only through the skin of the ear lobe. The jewelry sits as horizontal as the anatomy will allow. When wearing a barbell, one ball emerges on each end and sits on the ear with no shaft exposed.
A “smiley” is a piercing of the thin strip of flesh that attaches the center of the upper lip to the gum plate. This piece of flesh is called the upper lip frenulum, and the piercing itself is consequentially also known as “lip frenulum piercing” or alternatively “scrum per piercing.”
If you know where your uvula is, you might be astounded to hear that it can actually be pierced, but that’s exactly what a uvula piercing is. For those who don’t know, the uvula is that dangling extension of tissue at the back of your throat, right in between your tonsils.
The ragnar piercing, also called a “deep snug,” is a modification of traditional snug piercing. This is a piercing of the ear cartilage at about the point where the lobe blends into the helix, but unlike a regular snug piercing, the ragnar extends from the traditional snug point and goes through the cartilage of the helix (the ear’s outer rim) coming out the other side. As a horizontal piercing, this makes it appear as though there is one ball at the inside ear rim and another resting on its outside edge.
The Ashley piercing, also often called by it’s more technical name, “inverse vertical labret,” is a modern lip piercing in which one end rests inside the mouth (normally in the area where a standard labret would fall) and the other end is visible in the center of the bottom lip. Although there are variations of this piercing done in pairs or to the side of the lip, unlike most others of its kind, all of them are generally referred to by the same name.
The Nasallang, a tri-nasal piercing, is a piercing of all three major points on the nose at the same time: the left nostril, right nostril, and septum. This is performed as a single piercing through all three places with the same needle and uses a single piece of barbell jewelry, kind of like an industrial, but for your nose. Because the needle (and afterwards the jewelry itself) will have to pass through the upper portion of the nasal septum, a nasallang will usually be done lower on the nose than standard nostril piercings; placement will vary slightly depending on the individual shaping and extension of nasal cartilage.
The Marley is an oral piercing of what is called “the tongue web,” or more accurately, the frenulum linguae. This is the thin strip of tissue underneath the tongue that connects it to the lower gum plate. Most people can get this piercing fairly simply, however, due to the varying thicknesses and positions of the tissue, a small amount of persons will be unable to get a proper Marley piercing.
The Daith piercing.
The daith is a piercing of the upper ear cartilage close to head. This is one of the few piercings that has more than one placement (mostly due to the variations in cartilage shape from person to person) and is called by the same name in all of its orientations. There are two primarily accepted positionings for a daith piercing, which are in the thin flap of cartilage where the helix meets the scalp, or more traditionally at the portion of the cartilage that crests between the tragus and rook areas of the ear. In accordance with the piercing’s placement when it was first invented, a true daith must be placed in a very specific manner on the crest, so that one end of the jewelry appears to be emerging from within the ear canal.
