We have noticed a rise in the popularity of multiple piercings coming into the studio recently. With customers requesting piercings such as the double and triple helix and conch piercings, tragus and rooks.

So what has caused this sudden increase of multiple piercings?

One possible explanation could be due to with popular culture and with the influence the media and celebrities have on popular trends. For example, nearly every time a celebrity is pictured in the media, on social networking sites with a new piercing, it isn’t long until we see that particular piercing has a rise in popularity. Here are just a few examples with celebrities sporting multiple piercings that have had an increase in popularity in the past few years: Scarlet Johansson [caption id="attachment_626" align="alignnone" width="270"]The actress has been known for being a fan of multiple piercings for having septum and eyebrow piercings in the past, and owns both tragus and anti helix piercings currently.
