What is a Constellation Piercing?
Constellation piercings, or ‘curated earrings’ as they are also known, are a relatively new trend, and one that has been gracing our Instagram feeds a lot lately. As you might have guessed, constellation piercings are inspired by the constellations of stars that we see in the sky at night. They involve a scattering of small piercings on the earlobes, to imitate a collection of little twinkling stars.
This trend is the very latest in cool ear piercings and it looks like it is here to stay, so if you’re looking for stylish ear piercings with a real, unique look then curated constellation ear piercings are for you.
Where to Get Constellation Piercings?
Constellation piercings are usually deliberately mismatched, with each ear having an individual smattering of earrings. Of course, the way that you wear your constellation piercing is up to you and there are lots of different ways that you can experiment with piercing shape, size and placement. If you’re in Newmarket, Ontario or the surrounding areas and looking for a piercing professional you can trust, stop by or give the team at Pierced.co a call today and we’ll be happy to advise you on placements and offer inspiration for your constellation piercings.
The piercings are usually arranged according to your ear shape. Everyone’s ears are different and if you’re getting multiple ear piercings, there are plenty of ways to get creative with the placement. For example, some people have longer earlobes than others. If that’s you, you may be able to fit three or four piercings on the lower lobe. However, there could also be cartilage here, which could affect the placement, so it is a good idea to speak with whoever is piercing your ears about your preferred placement first.
How Many Piercings Should I get at One Time?
Most ear piercing specialists would recommend that you only get a few piercings in any one sitting, as the more piercings you get, the more likely your chance of infection. Of course, this is your choice and our team will be happy to offer advice.
Do Constellation Piercings Take a Long Time to Heal?
The healing process for constellation piercings is no different to a regular ear piercing. We would usually recommend that you leave the original jewelry in your ears for 6-8 weeks, as removing it sooner can cause the holes to close.
We know it can be tempting to put your own jewelry into your ears sooner but trust us, it is worth the wait when you can finally switch up your stylish ear piercings with confidence. It is also important when switching up your jewelry that you make sure that it is hypoallergenic. This means that they are safe for you to use. If you’re unsure about the safety of your jewelry and you’re in Newmarket, Ontario or the surrounding area, drop by and speak to a member of the team Pierced.co who will be happy to advise you.
How to Care for Your Constellation Piercings
If you want to keep your constellation piercing looking chic and stylish, we recommend that you take some time to look after the piercing and the surrounding area, especially while it is healing. Looking after your piercing is easy if you follow these simple steps:
- Avoid touching or play with your constellation piercings too much (we know it can be tempting!), especially if you haven’t washed your hands thoroughly first
- Use natural, skin sensitive products to gently clean your piercings, especially whilst is it healing. A lukewarm saline solution works just fine applied with a cotton ball or Q-tip
- When drying your piercings, use a clean paper towel. This will keep them clean
- Leave your original body jewelry in while your piercings are healing
