It’s amazing how many comments I have been getting lately regarding hip piercings. Today we will explore this increasingly popular body piercing.
The name “hip piercing” is kind of misleading as the piercing is not really on your hips but instead place on your stomach just above your hips. Typically surface barbells are used for hip piercings but tygon jewelry has also been known to be used during the healing process to reduce stress.
A hip piercing is, of course, a surface piercing and careful consideration should be given to any surface piercing. Surface piercings have a high rate of rejection and the slightest trauma can start the rejection process at any time, even years after the piercing has healed. I could ramble on and elaborate more on surface piercings, but I already wrote a detailed article on surface piercings.
Hip piercings have historically been an EMO fad but in later years this piercing is becoming popular among many cliques.
I managed to find a video on YouTube with a pretty detailed account of a hip piercing, enjoy.
