The announcement of a new piercing trend can come off as terrifying (because hi, needles), expensive, and unrealistic for our day-to-day office attire. But have no fear, constellation piercings, introduced by Beyoncé's personal piercer, Brian Keith Thompson, is one stunning look that can work for literally everyone.
Constellation piercings normally include three or more piercings in a cluster that allow you to mix and match your jewelry for a look that's all your own. If you're not sure where to even begin, we've shared some of Thompson's most recent clients as well as some who have taken it upon themselves to perfect the look.
