If you didn’t already know, today – June 28th – is International Body Piercing Day! YASSS! This awesome holiday is celebrated on the birthday of a person we all should be grateful for if we have a piercing in our body: Jim Ward, the man who is best known for the innovations he brought to the industry of body piercing, including the internally threaded barbell (I love internally threaded everything, so this was an interesting fact for me personally!). Today is a day meant for continuing the ongoing legacy that Jim Ward started for us pierced folk, which is promoting the education and awareness of both the culture surrounding body piercings and the proper safety standards that should be practiced with them.
Fun Tip: Many piercing studios celebrate today with offers that will have you running to get that waitlisted piercing you’ve been wanting, so if I were you, I’d check out your social media accounts and hunt for any postings of deals around your area!
Even if you don’t celebrate by getting a piercing today, you can treat yourself to a little something new for your piercing with our huge selection of body jewelry trends, including:
