14 Celebs With Naughty Piercings

It appears that Demi Moore’s new boyfriend, 30-year-old Will Hanigan, is dipping his pearl in her oyster. And that’s not some weird euphemism for them doing Kundalini yoga together (but they are doing that too). According to The New York Daily News, the Australian pearl diver (yes, that’s really his profession) has a precious treasure hidden in his penis. “He had a pearl inserted in his penis when he was in his late teens. It is pearl farming tradition and he would always joke about it in Australia. He’d boast it’d give girls extra stimulation in the bedroom,” said an anonymous source. Keep reading »

I couldn’t tell you why, exactly, but bellybutton piercings viscerally repulse me. I should probably preface that by saying that bellybuttons viscerally repulse me, and a crystal stud right up in there does nothing for the biological aversion I feel in regard to that weird spot. Navels are just so human, you know? Like, there was a bloody fucking cord in there that attached you to your mother, which is weird enough, and then you had to go and stick a Swarovski (if you’re fancy) in for good measure? Ugh!

But that’s just my opinion. Obviously not everyone shares this sentiment, because enough people have rocked bellybutton rings in the past (and present!) for it to have been a Thing. (My mother texted me a couple of weeks ago to ask me if she should get hers done with her fellow bellydancers, which, again, is ugh on so very many levels.) And now that Beyoncé‘s gone and flaunted her navel jewel in her new H&M ads (why, Bey, why?), do we think it will make a resurgence? Don’t they get all crusty and grimy and get stuck to your sheets and maybe cause infection? I don’t know, man. Would you be willing to give this very ’90s trend another go? [Refinery29]

Cover your bellybutton before reading this:

A Colorado woman recently got her belly button piercing caught on a swimming pool drain. First of all, I hate this woman just because she is swimming in a pool in November. But second of all, OWWW. Fortunately the pool was only filled with six inches of water so her head was above water and she was never in danger of drowning. But her ring was painfully entangled in the drain plug for half an hour, which sounds unpleasant. Firefighters were finally called to drain the pool and free her navel.

This story is my nightmare of nightmares. You see, I once got my belly button ring stuck on the underside of a table (it had a curved lip) and it yannnnked when I stood up. It. Was. The. Most. Painful. Thing. Ever. That incident was one of the main reasons I took that particular piercing out. (Don’t worry, there’s still five others.)

Turns out I’m not the only one with a painful piercing horror story — here’s all the awfulness that has happened to the Frisky staff and our various holes-from-poor-life-choices: Keep reading »

Willow Smith, 11, Too Young For A Tongue Piercing?

Will Smith explains why he and Jada let Willow shave her head. Read More »

Willow Smith, the 11-year-old daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, posted the above photo to her Instagram this weekend, and it appears as if the young pop star has a new tongue piercing. There’s certainly a possibility that she’s got one of those fake magnet piercings in her mouth and hasn’t actually been stabbed by a needle, but let’s assume, for the sake of debate, that it’s real. A person under 18 can’t get pierced in California without parental permission, and Will and Jada do seem like parents who try real hard to be “cool,” so I wouldn’t put it past them to allow this. (Especially if they subscribe to the Scientology belief that kids can basically do whatever they want.) However, this does seem like it would be a more extreme version of what Will talked about in regards to letting Willow shave her hair, no? What do you think — is 11 too young for a piercing? (Personally, I think yes. I also think tongue piercings are so ’90s raver. Sorry, Jessica.) [Dlisted]

Attention, 13-year-old boys of the world: it is a bad idea to put magnets in your mouth and it is an even worse idea to swallow them.

A Brooklyn pediatrician is warning parents and kids alike that $5 fake magnetic tongue rings are a terrible idea after a 13-year-old boy accidentally swallowed his. The magnets are strong enough to tear the intestines — and God-knows-what-else on its way out the pooper — and could be fatal. (His doctor called the possible intestinal tearing the  ”equivalent of a gunshot abdominal wound.” Ick.) The 13-year-old in question is having his magnets flushed out of his system, but if that doesn’t work, doctors may  need to operate. The Centers of Disease Control and Prevention has warned against fake magnetic tongue rings since 2006.

I got my tongue pierced at age 16 — for real! with blood! and pain! — in my brother’s bedroom. It is definitely not a decision to make lightly but it’s not something you should try to fake, either. Oh, the joys of childhood rebellion. [NY Daily News]

13 Celebs With Naughty Piercings

Rooney Mara dedicated her entire being to the part of Lisbeth Salander for the filming of “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.” She even went so far as to really get her nipple pierced. “I’m naked quite a lot in the movie, and I thought, she has [a nipple piercing] in the book, and she should have it [in the movie] … Because of all the tattoos and the makeup and the piercings, and the physical transformations my body has to go through, it would always feel sort of like I was in costume, even if I was naked … It just felt like a good one to get — a necessary one to get,” she told Allure of her decision to go through with the piercing. I wonder if she’s planning to keep it? Click through to see more celebs with naughty piercings. [Daily Mail UK]
