All Pierced UP

By Nellie Given

The past couple of years have seen a growing trend in our favorite little accessories, ear piercings. Girls are getting super creative with their ear lobes and the payoff is adorable. This trend is so fun because you can go as big or as small as you want. It’s time for me to start bedazzling my ears!

The trend started in the celebrity realm with actors Emma Stone, Miley Cyrus and Kylie Jenner and has since blown up everywhere. Ear piercings are redefining the word “class” because of the elegant designs popping up every day.

Piercings are the new tattoos, a new art form. Also, they are permanent, but not quite as permanent as ink on the skin. The nice thing about these trends is that you DON’T have to get another needle puncture! There are a bunch of faux-earrings out there, from ear cuffs to stranded posts, that will let you try out the look before saying I do.

If you are loving these looks than go for it! Don’t let you second-guess yourself because you can totally pull it off. Plus, college is the best time to try new looks, because you probably won’t try many new things in the start of your career. Have fun and happy piercing!
