20 Gorgeous Examples Of The Daith Piercing That Will Make You Want One ASAP

Last week, I saw a few articles pop up on my Facebook newsfeed about the daith piercing. What is a daith piercing, you might ask? It’s a piercing on your crus helix, which is the part of your ear above the tragus. It’s basically a small piercing tucked into your ear that could easily be missed, but ends up looking so cute and kind of mysterious. You know, this:

Magazines like Cosmopolitan were calling daith piercings the “new thing” and I was like… um, what? Not to sound obnoxious, but I (along with many other people) have known about daith piercings for a very long time. Back when I was in high school, a lot of my friends were getting them done when they found that regular ol’ piercings weren’t contributing to any sort of shock factor anymore. Daith piercings are surprising and unique without being too in-your-face, so they fit the bill. So, to call them a trend right now just feels a little awkward.

Apparently, this all came about because a very trendy piercer from Los Angeles named Brian Keith Thompson told a reporter from Refinery 29 that daith piercings were the *trendy* piercing of the moment. He told Refinery 29: “If you’re only gong to have three piercings right now, I would do your lobes, your tragus, and your daith. The daith is really popular right now – and [they] look cool all together.”

Regardless of whether daith piercings are new or not, Thompson is right – they do look very, very cool. So if you want to try something a little different that isn’t going to make your parents ground you for the next six months, but is still going to make a very sweet Instagram photo, you should try a daith piercings. Not convinced? Check out these gorgeous examples of daith piercings that will make you want one ASAP:
