Types of Piercings, piercing names and piercing jewellery variants.
Piercing is a trend that has developed into an authentic cultural tradition and has spread across the globe over time. Little by little, new places have turned out to be “piercable”, so that today there are countless shapes, names and designations for piercings on various parts of the body. At this point, we want to give you a small overview of the most popular types of piercing. You can find piercing jewellery for all these parts of the body here in our piercing shop.
list of piercings:
Facial Piercings – Types and Names
Piercings on the face are trendy. The trends here change regularly, but at least for the past 20 years, it can be said that a face piercing has never really gone out of style. For a while, eyebrow piercings were particularly fashionable. Later more and more nose piercings such as the nostril and the septum piercing became popular. At the same time, you could see a trend towards lip piercings. Now, virtually all types of facial piercings are equally present. Only one form of facial piercing is rarely worn. Today, both women prefer an individual combination of facial piercings, for example, Nostril, lower lip and cheek piercings.
types of piercings – Eyebrow piercing
The piercing in the area of the eyebrow already prevailed in the western culture area in the 1990s. Both women and men like to wear it, and in most cases, it heals very quickly. Most piercing rings or banana piercings are worn in the eyebrow. It is essential to use only piercing jewellery with a high material quality on the eyebrow, as on all other parts of the body. In the worst case, piercings of poor quality can lead to skin irritation, allergic reactions or inflammation. We only sell high-quality piercing jewellery that German test engineers regularly test. Here in the shop, you will select the most suitable piercing jewellery for the eyebrow.
types of piercings – Bridge Piercing – Between the eyebrows
As the name suggests, the bridge piercing forms a kind of bridge between both eyebrows. This visual stimulus makes the eyes more visible. Bridge piercing is relatively uncommon and is, therefore, an ideal way to underline your note. Banana piercings are most often worn as bridge piercing jewellery.
types of piercings – Anti eyebrow piercing
The Anti Eyebrow Piercing is placed below the eye, slightly above the level of the cheekbones. When properly placed by a qualified piercing, it usually heals very quickly. You should avoid touching the piercing unconsciously, and when dressing, you should be careful not to get caught on it. Banana piercings in various colours and shapes have proven themselves as jewellery for anti eyebrow piercing.
types of piercings – Nose piercings
A whole chapter could be devoted to the topic of nose rings and plugs. However, we want to keep it short and restrict ourselves to the essentials.
different piercings – Septum piercing
The septum piercing is the nasal septum, the so-called nasal septum. The tip of the nose is very sensitive, which is why the piercing process can be a little more painful. However, setting the septum piercing is often very painless, provided the cartilage of the nasal septum is not too strong. Many different variants can be considered septum jewellery. Everything is currently possible, from classic jewellery pieces like the septum banana or the septum retainer to richly decorated Indian septum clickers. Fake septum piercings are also trendy at the moment. They look like real septum piercings, but you don’t need a piercing hole. They are clamped to the tip of the nose. The whole thing is entirely painless and looks deceptively similar to an actual septum piercing.
different piercings – Nostril piercing
The Nostril piercing is pierced through the right or left nostril as desired. At least in western culture, it came up a little earlier than the septum piercing. Nose rings and nose studs had their first popularity peak as early as the 1990s. In the meantime, however, they are on the way to gaining the same popularity as the septum piercings. You can find high-quality but cheap Nostril piercings here in our nose piercing shop.
piercing types – Cheek Piercing / Wangenpiercing / Joue Piercing / Dimple Piercing
The cheek piercing has many different names. The five best known are probably cheek piercing, cheek piercing, dimple piercing, joue piercing and dimple piercing. In most cases, a labret piercing rod is used. Cheek piercings usually heal very quickly, as the oral mucosa regenerates quickly.
piercing types – Lip piercings
Piercings in the lip can be worn in the upper lip as well as in the lower lip. Piercing rings are usually more popular for lower lip piercings, while labret piercings are often worn in the upper lip.
places to get piercings on body – Medusa piercing
The Medusa piercing is located in the small dimple of the upper lip, below the nose. It is also known as Philtrum Piercing and is enjoying increasing popularity, especially among women. A labret piercing plug is usually worn at this point. However, piercing rings are also occasionally used.
piercings types – Madonna Piercing / Monroe Piercing
Madonna or Monroe piercing are two names for the same type of upper lip piercing. The name comes from the fact that this piercing jewellery is modelled on the mole on the upper lip of Madonna and Marilyn Monroe. Here, too, a labret piercing plug is often used. This is placed where the beauty mark is on the two famous ladies, namely diagonally above the upper lip.
piercings types – Labret piercing
The term labret piercing has two meanings. It not only refers to the piercing stud with a flattened back but the term labret is also used as a synonym for the lip piercing in the middle below the lower lip.
places to get piercings on body – Jestrum piercing
The jestrum piercing is still relatively unknown, at least under this name. It is a vertically pierced Medusa piercing, in which a piercing banana is usually used as jewellery.
different body piercings – Snake Bites Piercing
As the name suggests, this type of piercing is modelled on a snakebite. With Snake Bytes, a lower lip piercing is set on the left and right of the lower lip. Two are better than one. Depending on personal taste, both rings and labret plugs can then be used in the lip.
different body piercings – Angel Bites Piercing
While Snake Bytes are placed on the right and left under the lower lip, Angel Bytes piercings are located on the left and right above the upper lip. Angel bytes consist of two Madonna piercings.
piercing areas – Piercings in the mouth
There are also all sorts of things to pierce in the mouth. The advantage over other parts of the body is that the saliva in the mouth has a wound-healing effect and contributes to accelerated healing. Nevertheless, mouth piercings, like all different types of piercings, carry a specific risk.
different types of piercings – Tongue piercing
The tongue piercing is placed vertically in the middle of the tongue. A straight piercing rod (barbell) is usually used as jewellery for tongue piercing. The healing time of the tongue piercing is 4 to 6 weeks. It is crucial to avoid alcohol and nicotine during the healing phase not to endanger the healing process.
piercing areas – Tongue ribbon piercing
The tongue ribbon piercing is currently a rarity among body modifications. As the name suggests, it is stabbed horizontally (across) through the ribbon under the tongue. Classic piercing rods are usually used as jewellery, only that the rod length is chosen a little longer than with tongue piercing. Besides the straight piercing bars (barbells), curved bars (banana bells) are also often used.
list of piercings – Smiley piercing/lip ribbon piercing
The smiley piercing or lip frenulum piercing is pierced through the thin ribbon that connects the upper lip with the upper jaw. In most cases, all types of piercing rings and banana piercings or, in rare instances, straight bars are used as jewellery.
all piercings: Piercings on the ear – types, names and variants
Among the most common types of piercing are the various types of ear piercing. Earrings have been part of peoples’ cultural heritage all over the world for many millennia. In the following, we want to introduce you to the most critical piercing locations and the names of these piercings in the ear area. In addition to the classic ear piercings, there are also so-called fake plugs. They are worn in the earlobe but do not count among the traditional ear piercings, flesh tunnels or earplugs.
all piercings – Lobe Piercing & Upper Lobe Piercing
The lobe piercing is pierced through the earlobe and is commonly referred to as an earring. On the other hand, the upper lobe piercing is also used in the earlobe, just a little higher. The lobe piercing is the most uncomplicated and low-risk of all types of piercing.
pierced body parts – Unstretched Lobe & Upper Lobe Piercing
As the name suggests, the classic unstretched lobe piercing and the upper lobe piercing are either pierced with a needle by the piercer or set with a piercing gun. It then remains unstretched and has a diameter between 0.8mm and 1.2mm. In the unstretched lobe and upper lobe piercing, either any loud jewellery or classic earrings and ear studs in all possible variants can be used.
pierced body parts – Stretched earlobe piercing (flesh tunnel/ear plug)
The stretched lobe piercing has only established itself in European culture in the last 20-25 years. Before, it was largely unknown here. With the stretched lobe piercing, the earlobe is gradual, step by step, with the help of stretchers for tunnels, plus expanded to the desired size. Matching tunnel jewellery can then be worn in the earlobe. There are two types of tunnel piercings. The so-called flesh tunnels, which are similar in shape to a sleeve and in which the middle part of the jewellery is empty, and the ear plugs are more like a plug or plug, and the central piece of the jewellery is filled. Both forms of tunnel jewellery are equally famous for stretched lobe piercings and extended upper lobe piercings.
Helix piercing – kinds of piercings
The helix piercing is placed in the upper area of the ear. It is one of the so-called cartilage piercings that generally heal somewhat worse than piercings in the earlobe. Nevertheless, they are extremely popular with women, but now also with men. Piercing rings of all kinds are primarily used, but banana bells are also seen more often.
all types of piercings – Tragus piercing
The tragus piercing is now as popular as the helix piercing. It is pierced into the tiny tip of the cartilage in front of the ear hole. Piercing rings or short sticks are also primarily used as jewellery for the tragus of the ear.
all types of piercings – Anti – tragus piercing
The anti-tragus piercing, in turn, is pierced into the cartilaginous part of the earlobe above the upper lobe piercing. It is currently still one of the less common types of piercing but is increasingly popular. In most cases, the same piercing jewellery as the tragus piercing is used as jewellery.
piercings types – Industrial piercing
The industrial piercing consists of two helix piercings that are placed at a greater distance from each other. Then these two piercing holes are connected with the help of a long piercing rod. This loud jewellery on the ear appeared in Europe and the USA as early as the 1990s.
piercings types – Daith piercing
The Daith piercing is said to not only beautify the ear but also to help migraine patients. This is because this type of ear piercing is stung through a so-called pain point. According to Chinese medicine, this is also where the needles are placed in acupuncture therapies. The Daith piercing is inserted into a fold of cartilage in the auricle. Piercing rings are mainly used.
different types of body piercings – Snug piercing
The snug piercing is pierced parallel to the edge of the ear in the inner bulge of the cartilage. Everyone can’t have this type of piercing, but only if this cartilage bulge is particularly pronounced.
different types of body piercings – Rook piercing
The rook piercing sits vertically in the antihelix of the ear above the ear hole. It is also one of the cartilage piercings and has experienced a significant surge in popularity, especially since the 2010s.
all kinds of piercings – Conch piercing
The conch piercing is pierced directly through the auricle at the level of the ear hole. Often a straight piercing rod is worn afterwards. Often, however, piercing rings are also used, which are then worn around the outer edge of the ear, similar to helix piercing jewellery.
all kinds of piercings – Orbital piercing
Orbital piercing is also one of the increasingly popular types of piercing on the ear. The name comes from the fact that with orbital piercing, two helix piercings are pierced next to each other and then usually connected with the help of a piercing spiral (twister). With a bit of imagination, this piercing jewellery resembles an orbit in orbit. Orbital piercing is one of the more original and individual forms of piercing.
types of piercing – Piercings in the genital area
Genital piercings have also become more and more popular in Europe in recent years. Before you get a genital piercing, however, you should consider a few things and think carefully about which type of piercing jewellery you should consider. You should be just as careful when choosing a piercing studio.
Genital piercings for women – kinds of piercings
There are innumerable possibilities of piercings in the intimate area of women. Whether in the clitoris, the clitoral hood or the outer and inner labia. Many different types of genital piercings for women have emerged in the history of body modification. Here you will find all kinds and information: Genital piercings for women.

In addition to the face, ear, and genital area, a few other parts of the body can be modified. Here, belly button piercings and nipple piercings are the most famous two types of body beautification.
types of body piercings – Navel piercing – list of body piercings
Navel piercing is one of the most popular types of piercing. It is much more common in women than in men, but more men have dared to wear this type of body jewellery in recent years. We have compiled all information and suitable jewellery for the navel for you here: navel piercing.
different type of piercings – Nipple piercing
The nipple piercing is also known as a nipple piercing or nipple piercing and is also one of the body piercings. It is found a little more often in women than in men. From piercing rings to practically all types of piercing rods, almost any form of piercing jewellery can be worn in the nipple. All information and which jewellery shapes are particularly suitable can be found here: Nipple Piercing.
different type of piercings – Dermal Anchor / Microdermal – Piercings
Dermal anchors are a particular form of piercing, but they are also becoming more and more popular. With her, small mini implants are placed under the skin and then the actual jewellery, so-called dermal anchor attachments, are screwed on. Dermal anchors allow you to wear jewellery in places where piercing would otherwise not be possible. The most common places on the body where dermal anchors are placed are the neck, back and décolleté or in the hand area. Dermal anchors can be placed anywhere on the body. Only the imagination sets your limits, and you should, of course,e also choose places where the risk of getting stuck on the dermal anchor piercing is not too significant.
