As a 90's teenager, I patiently waited for my 13th birthday to get my ears pierced! Three years on, the belly button piercing was #trending but my mum wouldn't hear any of it.
I'm now a glorified adult, don't need mum's stamp of approval and can finally get to Maria Tash for every piercing I've ever dreamed of. A name that has been on the fashion set’s lips for taking ear piercing to new heights, Maria Tash is THE name in bling piercing and her first store in Dubai Mall is every jewel lover’s dream. Just like curating our wardrobes is a thing, getting our ear candy right is just what the style set ordered.
Be warned: you will have your kid in a candy shop moment as the possibilities are endless. Chose from 18k diamond rose, yellow or white gold jewellery. Sit back and enjoy the ear bling piercing process in one of the studios at the back of the store. The prices are steep and it's kind of hard to stop at one!
So why the rise of luxury multi-piercings? “Maria Tash has reported that 60 per cent of her clientele is over the age of 30. Perhaps it’s reigniting a teenage rebellion and amplifying the rewards – at 16 it was a ring of steel, at 30 it’s a rose gold loop of pavé diamonds.”
The luxe ear candy options don't stop there, the ‘Piercing Annex’ is a travelling piercing studio that comes to life in KSA and the UAE. A first of its kind in the region, they stock carefully curated high-end body jewellery from international jewellery designers such as BVLA, Pupil Hall, Meenu, Shiva and many more. Watch out for their 2019 dates and keep up-to date with their Instagram @thepiercingannex.
If you're in the mood for some awesome luxe bling, you know where you've got to be!
