Remember the ‘90s? You know, when lip rings, septum piercings, and belly button jewelry were all the rage? Those were the good old days. And while the abundance of cool-girl piercings has taken a back seat to tiny tattoos, it’s time to bring them back. Where to start? With celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Chloë Grace Moretz, of course.

But these aren't your average constellation piercings. The latest accessories we've seen are edgier than ever — and they are giving us some major throwback vibes to the grunge era. Click ahead to check out the coolest ones we’ve seen recently on our favorite stars. And get ready, you might be tempted to give your ears, nose, or nipples the pierced treatment, too.

Kim Kardashian
On Snapchat, Kardashian debuted a chic, gold lip ring at the annual Jenner-Kardashian Christmas Eve party this year. The edgy accessory was a bit out of left field for the star, but you can count on her to make a lip ring looks instantly glamorous.

Chloë Grace Moretz
Moretz resurfaced an old photo of her faux septum piercing today on Instagram. And while we’re left wondering how she weaved a fake ring through her nose, we’re even more curious as to how punk rock we'd look if we did the same.

The more sparkle, the better, right? Moretz even posted a photo of her dainty tragus piercing that's so rad.

Chloe & Halle Bailey
The VMAs red carpet always delivers the coolest style choices — but Chloe and Halle’s dope duo of piercings took the cake this last year. Halle looked next-level with her feather nose ring, while Chloe offered a fresh take on the septum piercing that doubled as a trendy ear cuff.
