6 Cute, Easy-to-Hide Piercings

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at WPUNJ chapter.

People love piercings, especially girls. Of course, there are people who don’t like them, and those people are usually the ones hiring you. Here are 6 piercings that can easily be hidden (when necessary) — and just as easily shown off.

1. Tragus


Your tragus is the little flap of cartilage just before the opening of your ear. It’s discreet enough to be covered, even when your hair is in a ponytail but can be emphasized with bright colored rings. 


2. Nose


Nose piercings are fairly common, and thanks to that, people have come up with a lot of ways to both hide and accentuate them.


3. Smiley


The “smiley” piercing is the thin layer of tissue that connects your lip to your upper jaw line. The piercing is quick, painless, and very discreet.


4. Cartilage


Cartilage piercings are also very common. They can be hidden with hair or with “invisible rings,” which are made for almost all piercings. A great thing about cartilage piercings is how many you can get; the options are only limited by the size of your ear.


5. Belly Button


The best thing about belly button piercings are you can get them in literally any position you want. People have gotten horizontal or vertical belly piercings, and you can get more than one. Also, you wouldn’t have to hide or take the ring out for work because getting dressed in proper work attire automatically covers it.


6. Hip Piercings


Hip piercings are easy piercings to hide and can be done two different ways. You can either get bars through the skin, as a surface piercing or get them as microdermals, which means they’re mounted on a flat piece of metal that is placed under the skin.
