20 Funky Nail Piercing Ideas To Express Boldness

When it comes to nail designs, many women have only heard of nail polish and pedicures to buff, trim, and strengthen nails. However, nail piercing is quickly catching on as a way to be artistic and expressive. Celebrities like Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and Demi Lovato have all rocked the cool nail style.

Nail piercings do not hurt and are typically done at the center end of artificial nails by licensed piercers. After the hole is in place, jewelry is added in different lengths and colors. Women usually choose the middle two fingers to pierce, although it’s not out of the question to pierce the pointer or ring finger. You can also choose between single piercings in each nail or doubles! Because nail piercing is completely safe and has little risk of infection, there’s no reason not to try this funky trend!

Exceptional Nail Piercings

Nail piercing isn’t practiced commonly, so people might stare at you at first sight. But, if you can implement your aesthetic taste beautifully on your nails, everybody will appreciate it. That’s why having a sense of beauty is a must for a fashionista.

Nail piercings need extra care in this case because they can look ugly if not done in an organized way. We have gathered together some gorgeous nail piercing ideas for your inspiration. Be warned, it might be difficult to choose just one style to try first, so save this list for future reference!
