Septum rings have officially fully saturated the mainstream. And if you ask the internet, they've got some pretty harsh words on the subject. Actually you don't have to ask them, they'll tell you their opinions unsolicited. On to the next one, we guess. The next piercing trend doesn't travel far from the septum ring, but it's not something we've seen much of before, and it's a little more subtle (grandma won't even see it if you keep your mouth closed!). spoke with J. Colby Smith, New York City piercing artist, and he dropped some knowledge on what's next in skin embellishment trends: the smiley piercing.

"It's along the inside of your mouth—the inside of your top lip, where there's a little web," J. Colby told Allure. "I put a delicate rose-gold or yellow-gold ring there. It's been around forever, but I've been doing at least a few of those a day lately. When you smile, it crosses your two front teeth, and it's unexpected."

Will you be hopping on the next piercing train or are you afraid it's going to become "basic" faster than you can say "pumpkin spice"?
