In spite of having the internet, there are still many things humans do not know. For example: What exactly is a daith piercing, and should we get one? For the most part, context clues are your best friends in this situation. A daith piercing is obviously a piercing. But what the hell is a daith?!

In spite of all the confusion, daith piercing will soon make its way to the top of your Pinterest board. The trend has been gaining traction all over Los Angeles and is perfect for those looking to venture into a new territory of body modification.

Given that the daith piercing is pretty much tucked in and out of the way, it is perfect for young professionals. That way you can enjoy having something new, without the fear that your boss might take you aside on your lunch break. Plus, it looks really cool!

While a hoop looks to be the most traditional daith piercing accessory, there are many different styles to choose from.
