The Perfect Piercing For An Aquarius

Though Aquarians may struggle to express their emotions, per South Florida Astrologer, they certainly know how to harness their creativity to share their feelings in other ways. Those born under the 11th zodiac sign are deeply in tune with their artistic nature, and use creative outlets like painting or music to channel their innermost thoughts. Additionally, ArtNet reports that Aquarians can often be eccentric and unique. They are out-of-the-box thinkers who march to the beat of their own drum. While this strong sense of individuality can be achieved through bold fashion choices and make-up, another way that Aquarians may choose to express themselves is through unusual piercings.

Piercings are certainly not for the faint of heart, but body modification may appeal to many Aquarians, as they're known for their curiosity. This curiosity, coupled with their desire to stand apart from the crowd, can lead Aquarians down a lesser-traveled path. So, if you happen to be an Aquarius looking to try out a body piercing for the first time, what do you need to know?

These daring piercings will satisfy Aquarius' personality

Astrologer Amelia Quint suggested to HelloGiggles that Aquarians should opt for an unusual something that reflects their unique nature, such as a nipple piercing. Clearly not for the faint of heart, this suggestion vibes with Aquarian's eccentric and unusual personality, as Elle noted. According to Healthline, you can expect this piercing to (obviously) hurt more than having your lobes done, but less than having your genitals pierced. As a result, it's doubly important to get this piercing done at a reputable studio.

For those who don't want to go the nipple piercing route, Cosmopolitan recommends that genital piercings might be perfect for Aquarians, simply because other people tend not to have them. While this area is likely a no-go for most people, those born under the Aquarius sign are innovative and up for satisfying their curiosity in unconventional ways. At the very least, the experience is bound to be a memorable one! However, if you happen to be an Aquarius who's not thrilled with these suggestions, there are also more modest choices to fit your personality.

Why not try a unique type of ear piercing?

One of the first body modifications outside the lobes that people opt for is the nose. But an Aquarius wouldn't be an Aquarius without flipping that concept on its head. Because Popsugar describes this zodiac sign as an "independent soul who thrives on originality," Aquarians might do better with a septum piercing. Not only is the look edgy enough to fit the Aquarius personality, but it is also very adaptable, lending itself to dozens of styles that can suit multiple aesthetics.

Apart from a septum piercing, a rook piercing is another great option for Aquarius. According to Byrdie, this rare cartilage piercing goes through the upper ridge of the ear, above the tragus. A word of caution however: Like many other cartilage piercings, the rook is quite painful. "This type of piercing goes through a very thick layer of cartilage, which is usually more painful and takes a little more time to heal," medical and cosmetic dermatologist Gary Goldenberg, MD, told the outlet. But is all that pain worth the daring end result? We'll leave that up to Aquarius.
