Pierce My Skin. The Boldest Beauty Statement

You know what we have’t done yet?! A collection of the weirdest, yet most beutiful piercings or jewels or whatever they are. It’s time to celebrate the ferocity of spirit and experience the exotic essence of facial jewelry.

From Salomè back in ’72 to Givenchy, Chanel, Dries van Noten or Rodarte many photographs were inspired in choosing their subjects nowadays. Whether you’re into them or not, there is no denying this was the boldest beauty statement. Yes, I do believe piercing has gone way too mainstream, but isn’t it all about madness and seduction. And, hell, I’m aroused when seeing these images.

The industry’s love for piercings reached an apex at (the one and only) Alexander McQueen‘s fall 2016 men’s show in London, featuring models with safety pins through their cheeks. If we’ll have to face it, Alexander McQueen show went pretty heavy on this one. We’ve seen face jewelry before, but nothing like this, all of the models look like they came from a Sex Pistols show. Only the brave will embrace this!

Ears, noses, lips and cheeks — options of places to pierce seem to be running out — and honestly, the idea is starting to feel a bit played out.

Still can't tell exactly my origins because of my Chinese eyes. I love romance. Cartoons and music. Cultartes. Hate fish roe. From the bottom of my heart.
