The Smiley

This funny name makes allusion to the exact occurrence that happens once a person smiles: the piercing shows. This piercing is done inside your upper lip, on that little web. The jewelry is incognito and only appears if the person smiles. Even though it heals quickly, it’s always important to keep in mind that piercings in the mouth are delicate and should be considered thoughtfully when getting one. This piercing seems to be coming in strong for this year 2016.

Instagram is overflowed with snaps of girls and women flaunting multiple piercings. The trend seems to mix-and-match jewelry in different locations, such as ears and nose. Having more holes allows you to have more places to put pretty jewelry. It’s easy to tweak and gives you a super personal look with easy healing piercings (if you go with the ears).


Of course that we couldn’t leave out of the top 3 this piercing. Even though it made its big appearance last year, it’s still coming in strong this year. Artists are easily making 10 to 15 septum piercings a day. We offer some rocking looking septum rings that are worth checking out.
