Who needs real piercings when you can get a fake? Fake piercings got me hooked! All my close friends (and now all of my readers) know that I am a fainter. Yes! anything that involves a needle normally gets me light-headed and I am out cold for the next 10-15 seconds (pathetic I know). I can never forget the first time I spontaneously walked into a piercing shop to get my nose stud done and as I sat on the piercing table anxiously waiting, the needle went through and I was out cold for the next 15 seconds of my life to wake up with my nose sparkling with my newest accessory.
Ever since that day, I knew that I loved the look of piercings but maybe I wasn’t ready to get anything else pierced. What happens then? John Paul Gaultier ‘s Autumn Winter runway, exhibits models’ throwback gelled kiss curls that were matched with heavy metal nose adornments, and now the trend has gone mainstream.
Other designers followed the hype of the septum piercing and more extreme versions of the look come into play;
Don’t get me wrong, the look did not begin with designers, for years it has been found on women around the world that exhibited piercings as a part of their tradition.
But ever since designers began taking on the look and began exhibiting nose septum piercings on the runway we then watched celebrities embrace the piercing fad as it become a rebellious (free spirit) fashion statement.
Celebrities that rocked this look;
But the question remains? How committed are you to a fad fashion statement? It is known that you need to keep your piercing in for the next 3-6 months when you first get it done (in order for it to heal well). Can you rock this look to work or your every day life for the next few months?
I know everyone is different but in my opinion fake piercings accessories are the way to go! You can try the look first in order to make a decision and see how it looks on you first before you commit to a piece of jewellery.
One thing I know for certain is that I am not ready to commit to any piece of jewellery (since I love changing my look too much) however I loved my day wearing my fake septum piercing thanks to LOVISA and will be experimenting with different fake piercings in the future.
