What Piercing You Should Get Based On Your Star Sign

Are you a septum piercing or a daith piercing person?

MOST POPULAR

Virgo: Upper ear lobe

Ever the realist and practical, you'd go for the upper lobe piercing. Whether you're choosing the double lobe piercing or something like an inner-double lobe piercing, you've figured that the upper lobe is the least likely to get in your way while healing, and the one you're least likely to regret. It's just practical! Plus, you can always add piercings anytime.

Libra: Septum - AKA in between your nostrils

You're a sensitive, artistic type, so you're drawn to the septum piercing for its versatility. You love that you can flip the piercing up and hide it, or pop it down and have it be on display. Aesthetics are especially important to you and can have a hand in defining your moods, so having options is always a plus.

Scorpio: Both nipples

A lil' bit of a masochist, nipple piercings for you are less about fashion and more about trying to enhance nipple sensitivity. You love the idea of having them be more "on call" during sex, and the idea of having this sexy little secret that only you and your partners know about, is pretty neat too. You can be cagey with your trust (and rightfully so, who isn't a traitor these days?), so you like the idea of selectively choosing who can and can't know about this part of you.

Sagittarius: Belly button

Sure, the golden age of belly piercings may have passed, but you're not someone who takes themselves too seriously. Whether you had one in your youth, or you always wanted one but your mum wouldn't go for it, now is the time to bring back the ironic belly ring. You're the one person in your friend group who could rock a dolphin belly ring in 2017 and not only get away with it, but elicit jealous "where did you get that?"s. Respect.

Capricorn: Daith — AKA that 'innie' part of your ear where the cartilage meets your head

As a tastemaker and influencer, your friends always look to you to start the trends and popularise new things. Remember when Sarah started wearing chokers right after you? You always have your finger on the trends and sure enough, a few months after you debut your new daith, you can count on seeing them everywhere.

Aquarius: Genitals

As someone who's always marched to the beat of their own drum, you know what you want when you want it. You'd see having a genital piercing as a big ol' "Here I am!" sign. You love the idea that a genital piercing would be something that not everyone else has. Sure, everyone can rock a cartilage piercing, but how many people can bravely saunter into a piercing shop solo, drop trou, and not even wince? You, that's who.

Pisces: Rook — AKA that little fold in the middle of your ear below the cartilage

Since creativity is often the driving force behind you decisions, the subtle chicness of the rook piercing was made for you. You're an individual, but you take pride in how caring you can be for other people. No one could ever accuse you of being selfish. You love how dainty the piercing is, and how it can stand beautifully on its own, but how it also complements other piercings so well. Kinda like yourself, when you think about it.

Aries: Tongue

Fiery and independent, you know the only person worth listening to is yourself. Getting a tongue piercing indicates to everyone around you that you know who you are, and that you're worth paying attention to. The tongue piercing is especially fitting, because you take pride in your wit and your words. That extra sparkle whenever you open your mouth to say something just feels right.

Taurus: Helix — AKA upper cartilage

You love the elegant simplicity of the helix piercing. As someone who believes that less is more (no one could accuse you of being extra), you're drawn to the piercing for its nearly unlimited jewellery options and timelessness. You take pride in your stability and your practicality. You probably even invested in headphones that don't touch your upper ear before getting the piercing, you're that detailed.

Gemini: Orbital — AKA middle of your ear piercing

As someone who wants it all, but can sometimes get caught up in the decision making process, the orbital piercing is perfect for you. Smack dab in the middle of your ear, the orbital traverses the line between cartilage and lobe. Perfect for indecisive twins. Depending on your mood, you could call it a cartilage piercing, or an upper-upper lobe piercing. It's justifiably either!

Cancer: Nose

As an emotional person, you have the capacity to overthink decisions. All your choices are vetted thoroughly, and for how emotional you are, you also put a lot of wise thought and care into your decisions. That's why you'll love a nose piercing. Whether you want to wear a hoop one day, or a stud, you have options! You can get two piercings, next to each other, or just rock one piercing, or one on each side of your nostril.

Leo: Just one nipple

Never one to shy away from the spotlight, you know that the whole reason to get a piercing is to show it off. Following suit from celebs, you'd go for the most of-the-moment body piercing these days. You love the fashion statement the singular nipple piercing brings. Calling out one of your nipples celebrates uniqueness and asymmetry in a way that feels very you.
