Whilst it’s nothing new, the trend for starry-esque lobes has suddenly got huge in LA, with every other cool gal rocking the trend right now.

And we can see why. It’s a super modern way to work your multiple piercings, and even better, can be totally unique to you. It’s also one of the more pain-free options, as it can be done just on the lobes, no tough cartilage-piercing needed.

Constellation piercings are about to be huge…

We love the dainty, delicate effect, which can totally be worn every day. And hey, we never need an excuse to buy more earrings… You?

Thompson’s even offered up his top tips to Teen Vogue to make sure you get the trend right – ‘two doesn’t really make a constellation, but three does’, he advises – and it’s all about the contrast. So make sure to mix up your simple studs with a few moon, stars or hoops to keep people guessing.

There’s tonnes of constellation piercing inspo around to convince you – here are some of our faves from Thompson himself…
