Surely your Instagram feed is full of constellation piercings, they are classy right? If you don’t know why they are called this way, stay in this article, because today we want to talk about these piercings that are trending!
What are constellation piercings?
Constellation is about managing to imitate the shape of a star constellation in our ears, nourishing ourselves with the different types of piercing that we can do. They are a pure trend and are in tune with other styles such as minimalist tattoos, those that you’ll hardly regret in the long term 😉.
The technique involves piercing the ear in a group of several tiny earrings (three or four minimum) artistically arranged in the shape of a constellation. As if it were a group of stars in the sky. It’s something very artistic and with a lot of personality!
How is a constellation piercing done?
As we’ve mentioned, Constellation piercings consist of several perforations in the same ear. This implies a process, since it isn’t advisable to carry out all the perforations on the same day. A gradual process will guarantee us better results in the long term, so… you’ll have to have a little patience and perseverance to see the final result! Remember, It’s important that the holes are fully healed before re-piercing!
We advise you not to do more than 2 or 3 per session. And this is just an indicative number, since it will depend a lot on the anatomy of each person and their circumstances. We recommend the following steps to do a constellation piercing:
- Choose a design that you like.
- Look for a good professional specialized in piercings.
- Take care of your perforations to add new ones when they gradually heal.
- And finally enjoy your cool piercings. They will be the envy of all your relatives 😉
