It wasn’t until we were writing our 8 Things We Learned From Watching Tiger King article that we thought about doing a piece on men’s piercings. So, as promised, here it is…
While Joe Exotic is definitely an ear-piercing advocate, we thought we’d give some other celebs’ piercings some time to shine (above the waistline only, pals).
We’re no health experts, so instead of preaching about what needle to use where and exactly how sterilised it should be (a lot, we’re guessing), here’s a round-up of 6 male celebs that have got their piercings bang on… (subjectively).
Let’s start off with some subtle piercings – Colin Farrell’s lobe hoops are so subtle we bet you didn’t even realise he had them? Or maybe you did… either way, we’re into it. If you like to keep it simple, this is the look you should strive for.
The icon that is Johnny Depp takes pride in his flashy jewellery. His double lobe piercings can be as simple or as jazzed up as you like – he rocks it both ways.
If we’re talking about piercings, how could we miss out Ronaldo’s signature diamond stud? Keeping it to one ear only, if you like all-things-flashy, this is the look for you.
You see that little stud? Not Frank Ocean – we mean the piercing on his right (our left) ear. Cartilage piercings don’t half hurt, but they look pretty cool.
Now, don’t get us wrong – we’re not condoning this haircut whatsoever. We are, however, fans of the piercings. Shia LaBeouf’s slightly odd styling moment, he pairs his Tiffiany’s stud with an eyebrow piercing. It’s not for everyone, but we’re still diggin’ it.
One of the coolest guys in the business, Lenny Kravitz’s piercings are effortlessly cool… we mean, just look. Double lobe piercings in both ears and even a double nose piercing (look carefully), for a lot of metal, this is still incredibly understated. We have ourselves a winner…
