Piercings are fun. Perhaps the most common piercing point is at the ear lobes. Ear piercings and other face piercings are probably the most visible to the public eye, and then there are other body piercings that you can hide (or show off) with clothing.
But have you seen the recent piercing-inspired clothing trend online? I don’t understand it.
Perhaps it’s for those who don’t want to commit to a specific piercing. Or maybe it’s for those who’d love a piercing but don’t want to go through the pain. Or maybe you just don’t want the hassle of having to clean and maintain the piercing. Totally understandable. I think the worst part about a piercing is that yes, although you are in pain for a moment, the aftercare can be bothersome.
So I understand that part. But what I don’t understand is that the piercings on some of these clothing items aren’t on traditional areas you’d get pierced. Yes, the pierced nipple tee makes sense. But what’s this piercing in the photo below doing? Just hanging out on the side? It just looks like a pin.

There’s also pierced boxers, which look kind of cool. The piercing looks more like an ornament, to me than anything. Just another design point.
If you’re into piercings, maybe this new style is perfect to incorporate into your wardrobe.
