I got my ears pierced right before my 1st birthday (my mom was so modern) and because of that, I just assumed piercings must not really hurt all that much. In high school, I decided to get them double pierced (it was all the rage) and I couldn’t believe how much it hurt. Not to mention that my ears are ultra sensitive and I ended up taking the earrings out after only a few weeks and today, those holes no longer exist. I ‘ve never considered any other kind of piercing because I am a big huge baby. Okay, okay, you’re right, get to the point…

At the Dries Van Noten show, Peter Phillips drew a thin gold line down the middle of models lips, creating the look of a piercing. It’s a little bit music festival (especially paired with the beautiful, flowery, dreamy collection, the loose cool girl hair), a little bit tough and a whole lot easier than sitting down in that chair at the piercing parlor.

I’m not sure if I’ll be drawing on any piercings any time soon, but I’m thinking about them more now (the same way I always spend a few days thinking about the beauty looks created by Peter Philips). I don’t know anyone that has recently gone for a piercing outside of the ear. Are facial piercings still happening? What do you think of them?


PS: Just for fun, take a look back at this kind of related/kind of not related piercings post
