Here's What Your Next Piercing Should Be, Based on Your Zodiac
Getting a new piercing is a fun and easy way to spice up your look, but there are so many options out there — rook, conch, navel, cartilage, helix, front helix, you name it — that it can be hard to arrive at which one is right for you. Our suggestion: let your zodiac sign determine your new piercing for you.
If you look to the stars for dating advice, hairstyle suggestions, predictions on how your upcoming week will be, and so on, why not look to them as a guide for a new piercing, too? There are far more than just 12 types of piercings out there but only one matches your sign perfectly — whether you're an adventurous and energetic Aries, a modest and thoughtful Virgo, a passionate Leo, or an imaginative Pisces.
So, my little water, air, earth, and fire signs, what will it be? A traditional earlobe piercing? What about a unique high-low placement? Or a bold and daring septum piercing? Keep scrolling to find out.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Stacked Cartilage Piercing
Capricorns are practical yet ambitious. An elevated stacked cartilage piercing — which is defined by two pieces of jewelry stacked right on top of each other — will feed the more energetic part of your personality without going overboard.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Septum Piercing
As an Aquarius, you're an independent soul who thrives on originality. A bold and unexpected nose septum piercing will help show off your daring side.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Orbital Piercing
There's no better match for imaginative and caring Pisces than an orbital piercing, which connects two piercing holes with one piece of jewelry. This interconnected body jewelry can go anywhere on your ear and stands out — just like you.
Aries (March 21-April 19): Nose Piercing
Aries like to keep things low-key and cool. A minimalist nose ring or stud on the side of your nose will showcase that energy and bring out those character traits even more.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): Rook Piercing
You are creative and determined and, most of all, like to make a statement when it comes to your appearance. A rook piercing that goes through the inner edge of a ridge in your ear is all but guaranteed to grab people's attention.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): High-Low Lobe Piercing
Geminis like to have options and hate to feel closed in creatively. Because you frequently like to switch it up, a high-low lobe piercing couldn't be more fitting for you. The placement, which has two or more piercings stacked or clustered together, allows you to switch out the jewelry according to your mood and style from one day to another.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): Navel Piercing
As a caring and sentimental Cancer, a nostalgic belly-button piercing will remind you of the past — any time between the '90s and 2000s, of course.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Tragus Piercing
Leos, who enjoy being in the center of attention, should get a tragus piercing because it's a great conversation piece. This location is on the side of your head right in front of your ear canal and is known for being one of the more painful piercings to get. Not everyone would go for it, but for a confident Leo, it's a perfect match.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Forward Helix Piercing
Virgos are often described as modest and practical. An over-the-top, complex ear piercing would only get on your nerves, but a delicate and intentional forward helix located on the upper, inner cartilage of the ear is just right.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Lobe Piercings
As a Libra, you prefer things to be balanced and orderly. Because of this, matching earlobe piercings that you can customize with fun jewelry make perfect sense for you.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Conch Piercing
Most people don't even know what a conch piercing is, but chances are, you've been eyeing one for a while. (For the record, it's a piercing that goes through the center of the lower ear cartilage.) The bold placement fits your passionate and exciting personality.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Helix Piercing
You're free-spirited but also no-frills — both in life and with your signature look. An eye-catching helix piercing is just rebellious enough for you. This is located on the back, upper cartilage of your ear.
