If you get a thrill from hearing the screech of heavy metal but have no idea how to express your love for this type of music, read on! Expressing your passions can be a great way to meet new people with the same interests as you or just a great way to stay true to yourself and be bold. There are many ways in which one can express their obsession of anything, from birds to skulls, but the best way to express music passions is often with the use of body jewelry.
Body jewelry is a fabulous way to express yourself because it enables you to put physical objects on your body that otherwise would be difficult to carry around or wear. Here are some ideas for the types of body jewelry that would highlight your personal admiration of heavy metal:
Stainless Steel Tunnels
Even plain stainless steel plugs can make a bold statement. They don’t necessarily need to be stainless steel either—you can choose any type of solid, unpainted metal of your preference. These can work well for every day, since this type of body jewelry lacks much decoration and is usually accepted for wear in most places (though as always, adhere to the rules of your workplace if you want to keep your job!).
If you want to get a little more creative for, say, an occasion or even on a daily basis, there are plenty of metal plugs that can express your metal-head passions. You could opt for simple studded plugs or ones with the carved design of a rose or skull and crossbones.
Tunnels can also be studded, so if you don’t want something heavy, sticking with shiny or spiked tunnels is always an option – take a look at urbanbodyjewelry.com for info. The great news is that metal plugs can be worn by anyone, including someone who has a new piercing or is still stretching. Choose materials such as titanium or surgical steel for stretching, or select any metal of preference if your piercing is already mature.
Lip piercings can greatly add some character to your appearance and highlight your boldness. Plain metal or black lip piercings are especially showy and can therefore be an excellent choice if you’re trying to express your music taste. Simple stud lip piercings can be more comfortable for wear since they are smaller, and once again, black, dark blue, or silver (plain polished metal) would be your best choice.
Nose piercings, although seemingly an ordinary type of jewelry, can actually allow for a lot of creativity. You can use hoops in the same manner as for lip piercings, but the key here is location. Are you a fun-loving adventurer? A dark blue or black “mustache” horseshoe piercing through the septum might be your thing. A captive bead ring might also be your match (whether it’s a septum or a nostril piercing), especially if the bead features an aspect of metal music that you really enjoy, such as a mini skull or heart. In any case, don’t be afraid to experiment to get a feel for what suits you best. After all, this is your body, your fashion, and your personality.
Whatever piercing you choose make sure you enjoy it and that it is about you and your particular style.
