11 Unique Piercing Ideas That Are Anything But Basic

Move over basic ear studsโ€”we found the most unique piercings to rock everywhere on your body. Even if you're afraid of needles, these piercings will have you ready for some new holes.

Piercings are perhaps the most versatile and gorgeous accessory around (next to handbags, of course). You can customize them to your liking, your personality, and best of all, they're attached to you (hopefully)!

Most women have the traditional lower ear lobe piercing, but there's so much out there beyond little studs and hoops. Basically, if there's skin covering it, you can pierce it.

Whether you're heading off to college for the first time or just feeling adventurous, these piercing ideas are sure to stick with you. Remember, if you want to try any of these unique piercings on for size, make sure to seek out a qualified professional in a clean, sterile tattoo shop or piercing parlor.

Have you ever seen anything so beautiful? If it's shaped like a colon, we're in.

2. Eye Candy

Jeepers Creepers, where'd you get those peepers? From the Netherlands at a cost of about $3000, that's where...๐Ÿ‘€ This is an image of an extraocular implant: a platinum heart inserted within the superficial inerpalpebral conjunctiva of the eye. It was first carried out at Netherland's Institute for Innovative Ocular Surgery (NIOS) in 2002 as a new form of body modification then Lucy Luckayanko had it done at Safesight in NYC. I have to say, it's not for me! But it's heart shaped so it makes my Valentine countdown โค #remains2beseen #anatomy #valentinesday #bloodyvalentine #heart #valentinescountdown #valentine #eyepiercing #eyejewelry

This alignment is so stellar (and can be easily hidden with a long 'do).

Which one of these pierced wonders is your favorite? And remember, if you don't like your new studs or bling, at least they're not permanent!
