Face and body piercings are getting more creative by the second, and it's almost as if we see a new piercing trend popping up on our explore pages every other day.

(More on that later.)
Dahlia piercings are rising in popularity, and if you're considering getting one, make sure to do your research on the risks associated with it as you would any other piercing. If you're interested in learning all things Dahlia piercings, we spoke to Vicki Rose, a professional body piercer at New York City's Studio 28 Tattoos, who shared some information on a few things you should know before getting one.
