These Constellation Piercings Will Make You See Stars

Whether you're looking for simple and elegant, or edgy and tough, you'll LOVE this new earring trend.

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. Pierced cartilage or just your lobes, edgy or elegant, modern or classy — this decorative trend is perfect to create a unique look for any occasion or mood!

Use some of these styles for inspiration and find which combination best fits you!

Make it simple and fun but still keepin' it classy

Start off with just a few piercings at a time. As cute as they might be, you still have to correctly care for them!
