35 Bizarre and Unconventional Body Piercings That Sting Extreme

It turns out you can get more than your ears pierced! Of course, you knew that but there’s an entire body modification community dedicated to pushing the limits of what decorating the body look like. Over the last several decades, piercers have gotten bold with their abilities and have achieved peak bizarre.

We decided to take a look at some unconventional body piercings that you might not have even known were possible. These body modifications go beyond traditional piecing techniques and utilize everything from microdermal implants and even embedding jewelry into teeth. We thought we knew everything there was to know about piercings but we were sorely mistaken. Take a poke around these 35 bizarre piercings and be sure to take inspiration from them if you’re into that sort of thing.

Triple Tongue

Let’s start modestly and begin this list with a good tongue piercing. Here we have a triple piercing known as “snake eyes.” Ouch.

Body on the Line

Microdermal piercing or dermal implanting involves making a single point perforation in the sub-dermal skin layer of the body and embedding a piece, or in this case, multiple pieces of jewelry. The neck is a popular location for this style of body mod.

Ear, Just Kidding

You didn’t think we’d show you a pierced ear, did you? Oh no, we’ve got another neck piercing. This time it’s below the ear. We feel that a dangly earring would have given the same effect, but what do we know?

Nape of the Neck

If you never want to see your subdermal piercing, put it on the back of your head. Why not?

X Marks the Spot

@chillerautopia.piercing (Source)

Why stop at two studs when you can have ten? This X-shaped design is neatly done and illustrates the creativity people have for their piercing schemes.

The Bridge

If you thought plucking between your brows was a pain, take a look at this. We’ve got a bridge piercing here through the loose flesh between the eyes. This looks very cool but we imagine it didn’t feel that way.

Smiley Piercing

@prokoli_krasivo (Source)

The smiley piercing or frenulum piercing pierces the flap of tissue that connects the inside of your upper lip with your upper gum. It sounds grosser than it looks. We find it rather cute?

Dimples

@rebekahthedurk (Source)

If you weren’t born with dimples, no worries! You can pierce them right into your cheeks. Piercing the face isn’t going to be for everyone, but this is probably one of the more adorable examples.

Philtrum or Medusa

@orbe.ornamentos (Source)

A medusa piercing is a philtrum piercing that pokes through the upper lip. After a dermal piercing, it’s rumored to be one of the most painful spots to get pierced.

Philtrum Part 2

If your medusa piercing doesn’t pop enough, consider getting a lip ring directly below it for this effect. That’s a lot of metal right on the mouth.

Flashy Wrist

@tattoosilver (Source)

Subdermal piercings can go just about anywhere and this piercing on top of a black tattoo really sparkles. If there’s a part of your body that needs a little bling, chances are you can get it bedazzled.

Cheeky Cheekbone

@jessicat_piercing (Source)

If you’d like to look like you’re crying for the rest of your life, consider the modest cheek piercing. Prepared for your long hair to get caught around this style piercing 1,000 times a day. It is a cute little dagger though.

Lovely

@egethspiercing.ee (Source)

This lace piercing is a rather extreme example. We wonder if you can even sleep on your back while it heals.

Spinetingler

@bepierced1 (Source)

Here we find spiked studs lining either side of the spine. Do you know how we mentioned that subdermal piercings were the most painful? These last two folks must have nerves of steel.

Ankle Bite

Back Dimples

bizarre and unconventional body piercings
@hayleytattoopiercing (Source)

Move over lower back tattoos, there’s a new body decoration in town. These back dimple piercings are not as intimidating as some of the other back piercings on this list.

Hip Hip Hooray

bizarre and unconventional body piercings
@toddlynch96 (Source)

Do you consider yourself a hip individual? You can always get your hip pierced to prove the point.

More Hip

@piercingsbyaaron (Source)

Why not go all out? Go ahead and get your entire abdomen pierced as this person has done. Waistbands be damned.

Magical Clavicle

@kaboommodel (Source)

Here we find a pair of matching microdermal clavicle piercings that dazzle. These collar bone piercings are a rather new innovation and they’re trending at the moment.

Knuckles

@artista_janny_tattoo_piercing (Source)

Kiss your punching days goodbye after getting these knuckle piercings. This hurts to look at.

Forehead

@spiritobodypiercing (Source)

Here we find a veritable pincushion, a piercing fanatic. The forehead piercings are beautiful but they’re not going to be for everyone.

Stellar Sternum

@itsauntieibukun (Source)

Sternum piercings are done just above the breastbone. These wildly popular piercings take up to three months to heal. So, be prepared for some soreness right in the middle of the chest.

Dental

@andreea._.avram (Source)

Dental piercings are a trendy fad that’s taken off over the past couple of decades. They’re technically not piercings and instead are jewelry that’s embedded into the teeth. Compared to most other body modification procedures on this list, they’re relatively painless.

Gum Piercings

bizarre and unconventional body piercings
@mouthmattersuk (Source)

As with all oral piercings, gum piercings are a risk. We’re pretty sure our dentist would disown us if we walked in with one of these.

Rhino

bizarre and unconventional body piercings
@modifiedsickboy666 (Source)

We don’t know who coined the term “rhino piercing” but they deserve an award. The rhino piercing goes straight through the tip of the nose. Ouch!

Stretched Nostrils Right Through the Nose

bizarre and unconventional body piercings
@syl43mc (Source)

For those who’ve always wanted to stick a pencil or straw through their nostrils, you’re in luck! All you need to do is to pierce both nostrils and stretch them over time until you’ve got gaping holes in your nose.

Chin Piercings

bizarre and unconventional body piercings
@extremebodypiercingcentral (Source)

If you weren’t born with dimples, you can certainly get them put right in. This hurts to look at. Live your lives, folks.

More Chin

bizarre and unconventional body piercings
@wickedtattoocentar (Source)

In addition to three chin piercings, we also find a set of “fangs.” This person clearly has no fear of needles.

One Poor Lip

bizarre and unconventional body piercings
@piercing_by_andrea (Source)

This person really went to town on that bottom lip, didn’t they? We count 7 different points of piercing. Are these extreme piercings getting scarier as we keep going?

Metal Mouth

bizarre and unconventional body piercings
@domidomdom666 (Source)

We’re sticking to the face for a moment here. We think it’s the jewelry that’s making these face piercings look so extreme. Black jewelry was definitely a choice!

Heavy Is the Lobe…

bizarre and unconventional body piercings
@allthepiercingsandmods (Source)

Again, there are a few extreme piercings here, but we want to focus on the earlobe that is being weighted and stretched. Ear weights are a popular tool for people with extreme piercings.

Stretched Septum

@modified.pantheist (Source)

Similar to the stretched labrets in the nostrils, you can also stretch your septum. Heaven help this person during cold and flu season.

Really Big Labrets

bizarre and unconventional body piercings
@thiicc_daddy (Source)

Stretched labrets aren’t only for your nose! You can stretch your cheeks and even skin of the chin around them. We don’t know how these complicate eating and drinking, but there have to be some setbacks, right?

Your Whole Face

bizarre and unconventional body piercings
@insta_body_mod (Source)

When in doubt, the answer is yes, you can probably get that pierced. This man’s face proves it.

Eyelid

@merdurh (Source)

Well. We thought we knew but we were so, so wrong. Yes, people get their eyelids pierced. However, this piercing comes with a laundry list of possible complications, mainly infection. This seems like a tragedy in the making, but please people, do you.

There you go! 35 bizarre piercings that actually exist in this world. Are you ready to go under the needle? If you would like to learn more about the world of piercings, keep on reading as we have compiled a list of all the types of belly button piercings you can get from least to most unusual.

Take a Walk on the Wild Side with These Belly Button Piercings!

The Upper Rim/Navel

Instagram

As promised, here’s an image showing an upper belly button piercing or upper rim piercing. This type is the most popular in the area. How about these precious, pink stones!? Those gems are a sight to see, especially considering how the majority of people go for a more traditional look with a clear crystal. We think this choice is beautiful.

Curved Cluster

Instagram

Here’s a very cool piece of jewelry that really shows off the area. It’s a curved cluster of gems that fits beautifully inside this person’s navel. We love how this piercing shows a little bit more variety and we’re glad that we’re already beginning to see how much variety there is with these piercings. We like keeping our options open. 

Lower Rim/Navel

Here’s a look at the other direction you can take this. The lower rim or lower navel piercing is not nearly as popular as its upper sister but it does have its merits. This piercing has a very simple and clean look but overall it’s still very beautiful. This one is for those who might want to be more lowkey.

Get Low

Instagram

Here’s another example of a lower navel piercing. We think these look best on people with shorter torsos where the belly button appears higher. But, it’s totally up to you!  If you want to rock this look, we would never tell you that you couldn’t. At the end of the day, it’s all about personal choice and everyone’s individual preference. 

Put a Ring On It

crazy belly button piercings
Instagram

Most piercers aren’t using full belly button rings like they used to. They’ve pretty much fallen out of fashion but we think a ring is a cute look. This is an upper navel piercing with a ring going right through it. Would you be nervous about something going through it and getting stuck? Because we would be. Is that weird?

Feeling Daring?

Here’s a double belly button piercing with both an upper and lower piercing. It looks fantastic if you can stand the discomfort of being pierced not once, but twice. We do appreciate the symmetry of this double piercing. What can we? There’s just something so right about something being able to be identical when it’s cut in half or more.

Exciting Jewelry

Instagram

Another way to make your belly button piercings really stand out is with one-of-a-kind jewelry. We find a cute little figurine that looks like it’s sprouting from this piercing. How fun! This type of piercing is perfect for those people who want something a little more on the whimsical side of things. Could you see yourself with this little guy?

A Trio

crazy belly button piercings
Instagram

Here’s a standard belly button piercing flanked by two subdermal piercings which are anchored to the skin by a small implant that holds the jewelry in place. This little trio of piercings adds a little extra pizzazz to the overall vibe of the piercing. If you’re feeling like you wanna be the center of attention, this trio is for you.

Another Way to Trio

Another way to get a cute triangular look with your belly button piercings is to have a horizontal industrial piercing. It’s simply a bar that goes in and out of the skin with two balls on the ends to keep it in place. This set might be down your alley if you don’t like the idea of the subdermal piercings.

A Rare Sight

crazy belly button piercings
Instagram

Most people choose vertical belly button piercings but that’s not all that’s out there. This person has two horizontal navel piercings that go through the rims of the sides rather than the top or bottom. We certainly don’t think that this double piercing in particular is one that you see often. Honestly, this is our first time seeing this one. 

A Lot!

crazy belly button piercings
Instagram

Here we find two belly button piercings stacked in an upper and lower formation. Below, you will find two small dermal piercings that give this look a total of six studs. It’s nice to see that the person who got this piercing chose to go with two different colored stones. It’s always good to see how people mix and match.

Outie? No Doubtie!

Instagram

Some people think that just because they have an outie belly button they can’t get a piercing. Nothing could be further from the case. You can still get yourself a belly button piercing. In fact, we hope that you might be inspired to get one if you’ve been holding back because you thought this. Go and live it up, baby!

See? No Problemo!

Instagram

Here’s another example of an upper rim piercing done to an outie belly button. It looks fantastic, right? Does it make you wonder what you’d look like with a belly button piercing like this? Or maybe you’ve already been thinking about getting one.  Either way, we encourage you to do what makes you happy. We like to think we would.

That being said, if you want it enough, you’ll make it happen, no matter what shape your belly button takes. We are super confident that you’ll make the decision that is right for you.

Make It Pop

Go ahead and make that belly button piercing pop with some dermal piercings to the sides. If you can’t get enough dazzle down there, add more with these implants. We can’t imagine how it must have felt to get all of these done but we can certainly admire the dedication that this person had when committing to her unique look.

Let It Dangle

Here, we find a double piercing with some dangling jewelry on the bottom to make it look even longer than the piercing scheme already is. If you’d like to accentuate the length of your torse, feel free with belly button piercings like these paired with some fantastic jewelry. We absolutely love this look in particular. We can appreciate the dangle.

Embellish It

crazy belly button piercings
Instagram

If you want to take your belly button piercing to a whole new level, consider a tattoo around the area once it’s healed. Don’t these fine lines look fantastic around the button? We love how this multicolored green and blue jewel pops alongside the intricate tattoo design. This combination goes together so well that we’ll definitely consider it a favorite.

Chain It Up

crazy belly button piercings
Instagram

Belly necklaces are like the most dazzling little belts in the world! We find one here paired with a belly button piercing to give the whole look something to be anchored to. This is also a combo that we’ve taken a particular liking to. We think that having the chain is a great way of elevating this look . It’s beautiful. 

Create a Constellation

You’ve likely heard of constellation piercings for your ears but have you thought to try the look on your belly? This person has a lower belly button piercing and two surface piercings to create an interesting shape.You’ve likely heard of constellation piercings for your ears but have you thought to try the look on your belly? This person has a lower belly button piercing and two surface piercings to create an interesting shape. If you really want to go all out, you could add even more subdermal piercing to grow the constellation, or even add more.

Top It with a Bow!

Instagram

If the idea of surface piercings doesn’t freak you out, you can consider creating rows of them to lace up. Let your belly button piercing be the top point to tie the bow to. Can you imagine  being in a hurry and not only having to lace this up, but also your shoes. We can imagine how chaotic that is.

Triple Threat

crazy belly button piercings
Instagram

Unlike some of the other trios of belly button piercings, this example consists of three true navel piercings. We find an upper rim piercing and two semi-horizontal ones that you’ll find gold rings inside. This set of piercing definitely has a different vibe going for it. It’s very cool.  One thing that we can say, is that this piercing rocks.

Triple Cross

crazy belly button piercings
Instagram

Here’s another triple piercing but it forms more of a cross shape as opposed to an arrow one. We love all the glittery blue in this button. This piercing feels s though it has a story behind it Like the point of it was to make is wonder exactly why someone wanted this piercing in particular. THis is a beauty!

It’s Pronounced with This One

crazy belly button piercings
Instagram

This person does not have a “conventional” belly button and thus, they’ve managed to turn some lemons into lemonade with their belly button piercings. There are three total, all very much pronounced thanks to the unique shape of this button! Overall, this set of piercings comes together incredibly and it shows the talent of the person who did the piercings. 

Quad

Instagram

Apologies for the extreme close-up of these belly button piercings, but we find an interesting scheme in this image. Three upper rim piercings are stacked right on top of one another with a lower ring dangling below. Let’s hope they did not get all four in a single sitting! The button’s shape here give this piercing a very unique look.

Double Industrial

We find a double belly button piercing here with both being perforated by a single, universal piercing. If you want an upper and a lower, you can make the most of both with a custom piece of jewelry like this!  We think this piercing really does suit this belly button. This cute little custom piece is beautifully crafted and shaped.

There you go! These belly button piercings weren’t so bad, were they? We hope you enjoyed this exercise in navel-gazing and feel inspired to get your very own belly button ring however it suits you! These piercings are a blast, just make sure you properly clean and care for it as it can become infected without proper attention!
