As you ditch your school uniform for college, it’s time to indulge in some stylish trends. For instance, body piercing has become quite a rage  recently.

“Ear and eyebrow piercing is a thing of the past. These days, lower lip and tongue piercings are popular. Also, there is a craze for tunnel piercing, which is an extension of ear piercing,” says Lokesh of Devilz Tattooz.

“Actor Kareena Kapoor’s look in the song, Chammak Challo, where she sports a nose stud, has also become a rage. Diamond and zircon studs for nose piercings look very good and go with every outfit,” says stylist Shival Ghai of Expressions Salon.

“Girls usually prefer navel piercing. The tongue area is a bit risky because it needs proper after-care,” warns Chetan Salhotra of Scorpio Tattoo Inn.

“Taking care of studs becomes more important, given the weather. Though there is a minor risk of skin infection, using proper sterilisation and making sure the artiste wears gloves eliminates this. A new needle should be used after every piercing.”
