Prepare To Fall In Love With The Constellation Ear Piercing Trend
Tanya Burr is loving it soooo.
Take a big breath and prepare to want to add about 12 new piercings to your ears thanks to the constellation earrings trend that's currently doing the rounds over on Instagram.
The trend is exactly what is says in the tin and essentially just involves loads of teeny tiny piercings littered across your ears to look like a bunch of shiny stars.
So pretty, no?
Like patterns of stars, the piercings are often done in groups of two or three and when you put in mini studs, they sparkle and catch the light just like twinkling constellations.
LA piercing and tattoo specialist Brian Keith Thompson is one of the people you have to thank for this one taking over your Insta feed in recent months and chatting to Refinery29 about how to nail the look, he advises: "Right now, I am really into doing something big paired with something dainty.
"Like a planet and a couple of moons."
If you don't want to get a bunch of piercings in slightly unusual places on your lobes and helix, you can get around the trend with a crawler that uses a single piercing and grips to the ear. There are loads out there made to look like mini constellations, like this set on Etsy or this spennier version from Free People.
Otherwise you just want to go a bit crazy with the mini studs and sparkly hoops - just like Tanya Burr's done this week...
Well that's us convinced - how about you?
