Keeping up with styles in the fashion scene might seem tough, but easy for frequent shoppers at RebelsMarket, where fresh trends rule. Seasons and colors change not only for clothes, but also jewelry. From renditions of sweetness with over saturation of lovely bright pastels to metal and darkness, there is a myriad of options available to any shopper. Body jewelry has existed from many eras in the past, and still sweeps the current fashion scenes with a thud. Spiked and non-spiked jewelry can be seen all over Pinterest, Instagram, fashion blogs and runway shows. Spanning across colored spikes, notably Barbie pink, silver, and neon, studs, chains and spikes can be edgy, casual, sweet or dressy depending on how you adorn yourself with them.
Different Types of Body Jewelry
They are a type of body jewelry composed of a straight, circular, or curved bar with a bead on each end or on both ends. They are the most common body piercing jewelry after rings. There are different areas where barbells can be applied, but the most common place you will see a straight barbell is in the tongue. Barbells differ in size, shape and materials used. Choose the best fitting barbell depending on the area of the body where you intend to place it. You might require wearing flexible plastic pieces of jewelry to allow movement and bending of the piercing site. The size of the barbell is called the gauge.
Shapes of Barbells
Straight: It features two objects at either end of a straight post, and is commonly adorned on the tongue.
Circular:It has a circular curved shape, frequently suitable for nose piercings.
Banana: they feature a shape that is sort of middle ground between straight and circular barbell, where the post is bent into a banana shape, and are the barbell choice for navel piercings.
2. Belly Ring
As the hot season checks in, your summer wear allows you to show more skin and your jewelry is bound to stand out more. Your navel piercing needs an outstanding belly ring that will boost your confidence and looks when rocking crop tops and high-low tops.
Types of navel rings
Barbell: If you have a new belly button piercing, you should opt for unembellished barbell or a banana barbell. The simplicity of this barbell is perfect for anyone who engages in lots of physical activity, and since there are no extra chains, dangles or charms to get snagged, there is no risk of breakage or discomfort.
Dangle: These hang down from either the top or bottom ball. The decorative dangling items attached to these standard banana barbells will add a fashionable touch to your style.
Spiral: It is best suited for special events or short term daily wear, where they provide a fun and interesting look.
Horseshoe: It is a circular post with balls on both ends and forms a horseshoe shape. Different color options are available as well as various shapes for the ends.
Top mount or top dangle: these are best suited for those fashionistas who have the bottom rim of their belly button pierced. These jewelry pieces are specifically designed with the decoration or dangling charms attached at the top rather than the bottom of the belly button.
3. Tongue rings
Two types of tongue piercings exist.
Dorsoventral: It involves inserting the jewelry from the top and through the middle and bottom of the tongue. The piercing is usually located in the middle of the tongue, away from major blood vessels. Barbell studs go on either side of a stainless steel post inserted in the piercing.
Dorsolateral: It goes through the width of the tongue. This type is dangerous because of the many blood vessels that run through the area.
4. Toe ring
This is a ring made of different metals and non-metals, and can be worn on any of the toes, but most commonly on the second toe of either foot. You would probably want to try out your first ring toe on the second toe because being the longest it is easier to put, and it is bound to stay firm. Take your casual style a notch higher by rocking barefoot sandals or flip flops with your toe ring in place to earn admiration.
Just like finger rings, toe rings come in different shapes and forms, from intricate flowers embedded with jewels to simple bands. Opt for fitted rings which come in one size, or adjustable toe rings that have a gap at the bottom that can easily be adjusted to fit snugly. If you are heading to the beach in your chic summer outfit, a toe ring might save the day, and earn you respect and attention.
5. Nipple rings
Divert all attention to your nipples, and rock daring, adventurous and mystic characteristics. When others shy away from nipple piercings, be ahead of trends knowing that fashion is all about making what looks wrong be right. The Nipple Shield Dragon and the Nipple Shield Lucky 7 are a few examples to provoke your thirst for irresistible jewelry for your seductive piercings.
6. Lip rings
Almost all bite piercings are lip piercings. There are various types of lip piercings;
Standard: This is done on the center of the lower lip. A captive bead ring (CBR) or labret stud can be worn.
Monroe: This is on the left side of the upper lip and is named for the mole on Marilyn Monroe’s lip. Usually a labret stud is worn in this piercing.
Madonna: Similar to the Monroe piercing, but done on the right-hand side.
Medusa: It is done just above the center of the upper lip.
Labret: Below the center of the lower lip. Technically, “labret” is a type of jewelry, and this piercing is called a “center lip piercing,” but most people understand that this is the location of the “labret piercing” as it’s frequently called. A labret stud or captive bead ring can be worn.
Vertical Labret: Similar to the labret, except that it is pierced vertically with one end coming out of the standard labret piercing area, and the other coming up through and out of center of the actual lip. A bent barbell or CBR is worn in this piercing.
Ashley: A variation of the vertical labret, but the lower hole in the piercing is actually in the mouth leaving just the hole on the lip visible.
Jestrum: It is like the vertical labret, but done on the top lip like the Medusa.
Dahlia: It is done at the corners of the mouth. It’s more common to see this piercing done in pairs, though it doesn’t have to be.
7. Nose rings
This is a piercing that is on the nose. The different types are:
Nostril – This is a single piercing of the nostril. Either a captive bead ring or special type of nasal stud can be worn in this piercing.
Septum – This is a piercing done through the septum. It is usually done through the fleshy part just below the cartilage. A captive bead ring or bent barbell is the jewelry usually worn in this piercing.
Nose Bridge – This is a piercing done through the fleshy part of the bridge of the nose between the eyes. A barbell or bent barbell is usually worn here. It should be noted that there is a fairly high rate of rejection for this piercing
