Whether you’re looking for something simple and elegant or edgy and tough, you’ll LOVE this new earring trend.
The announcement of a new piercing trend can come off as terrifying (because, hi, needles), expensive, and unrealistic for our day-to-day office attire. But have no fear; constellation piercings, introduced by Beyoncé’s personal piercer, Brian Keith Thompson, are one stunning look that can work for literally everyone.
