Tips to Fake a Facial Piercing
Decide Where to Fake the Piercing
Given the number of facial piercing options today, you can wear jewelry almost anywhere and everywhere. Hence, choose the area you want to fake the piercing on; for example, the ears, lips, eyebrows, tongue, or nose. It's always recommended you try a fake piercing before jumping onto a permanent one, because it will help you understand whether or not it looks good on you.
Research About the Types of Jewelry
Suppose you have chosen your eyebrow to experiment a fake piercing on, there are a number of jewelry options you may want to try. For example, there are barbells; straight bars with beads on each end, that penetrate through your eyebrow skin. Then, there are bead and captive rings that are the most common piercing jewelry, which fit into a small opening in the circle of the ring. Depending upon your face cut, your style quotient, and your ability to carry these kinds of jewelry, you can grab a piece of fake jewelry to wear.
Consider the Size of the Jewelry
Too often, one buys jewelry without actually considering the size - whether or not it suits their face cut, their appearance, and most importantly, their comfort. Hence, the wrong size will not only be bothersome, but chances are, it can ruin your entire look. It's recommended that if you're a newbie to piercing, go in for small-sized jewelry, as it will give you an idea of how exactly the piercing will look on your face.
Shop from a Piercing Studio
Those who are body piercing professionals have a range of face piercing jewelry, and you can choose whichever piece of jewelry entices you. There is magnetic jewelry that has a decorative front piece with a magnetic back piece that adheres to your skin easily. Magnetic jewelry is available for face parts such as the ears, nose, and mouth, since the two pieces need to attract each other when put on the opposite sides of the skin. On the other hand, there are hoop-shaped earrings for the eyebrows, looped fake rings for the lips, and bendable captive rings for the nose and ears. There is a slew of jewelry options that suit everyone's interest.
For those fashionistas whose parents won't let them get a piercing done, and for those who are too scared of piercings and the pain they accompany, fake piercing jewelry is no less than a boon. You can wear them the whole day without caring for the pain and the after-care, and remove them in the night before sleeping. They're so easy to wear! Spice up your look with a fake facial piercing, and let your friends copy your new look. Let's see how you astonish everyone with your creativity!
