Body piercings have been with us for centuries.

Thanks to the piercing technology we have today, you can literally pierce any part of your body safely. Another change in recent years is that men have taken an interest in piercings-and these have become more accepted in society.

For males looking to get one or two piercings, here are some types of body piercings male you can get.

1. Nipple Piercings


These are among the most popular male piercings and are preferred because they remain out of sight. Until, of course, you hit the beach, then you get to showcase the piercing and jewelry.

For nipple piercings, a puncture is made at the base of the nipple. These are often horizontal piercings, although angled and vertical piercings have also become popular in recent years.

Women will typically get one nipple pierced, while men often get both.

2. Brow Piercing

Eyebrow piercings were made popular by the 1970’s punk culture and have remained popular ever since. However, eyebrow piercings are considered more masculine, and men get them more often than women do.

The most common form of eyebrow piercings is one that’s done vertically. However, you can get multiple horizontal, anti-eyebrow, and bridge piercings.

3. Ear Cartilage Piercings

Ear piercings are popular with most genders, though men mostly get theirs in specific parts of the ear.

The most common male ear piercings are:

  • Conch: this is a piercing done on the innermost shell of the ear
  • Rook: a piecing along the antihelix of the ear
  • Tragus: a piecing on the cartilage flap over the ear canal
  • Daith: this is a piercing on the innermost cartilage fold of the ear
  • Helix: This is a piercing placed anywhere along the outer cartilage of the ear

4. Septum Piercing

Like ear piercings, certain nose piercings are more popular in men than in women.

For men, septum piercings are the most popular picks. The septum is the middle part of the nose that separates the nostrils. This piercing is made at the point where the cartilage is its thinnest.

Men will often accompany these with more masculine jewelry like pinchers, septum tusks, and bull rings. These will also often bear thicker gauges than what women would ordinarily choose.

5. Lip Piercings

Men are spoilt for choice when it comes to lip piercings.

The side lip piercing is among the most attractive options. This piercing is done on one side of the lower lip. This is then adorned with a hoop or captive ring.

Another great option is the labret piercing. This one is done smack in the middle of the area below the lower lip. Again, the most suitable jewelry for this piercing is a flat back with a ball tip.

Then Comes The Fun Bit

These are the most popular male piercings you can get. But, regardless of which one you go for, the fun part is always getting jewelry to adorn the piercing. Check out this site for unique, exquisite pieces to showcase your new piercing!
