This new piercing trend comes with a surprising health benefit

The act of body piercing is far from a modern custom, in fact, ancient civilizations who lived as far back as 3,300 B.C. were known to pierce their bodies for various religious and social reasons.

Today, the jewellery is mostly worn in the name of fashion and used as a form of self-expression. 

But, it now seems that the daith piercing, one the latest trend amongst the style conscious, may come with a surprising health benefit.

Haven’t a clue what we’re talking about? Don’t worry, here’s a photo to clear things up.

Well, not only is the daith piercing a fashion trend loved by the likes of Kylie Jenner and Zoe Kravitz, it’s also fast becoming one of the most talked about cures for migraines.

Much like acupuncture, many have claimed the piercing acts on a specific pressure point said to relieve even the most painful headaches.

However, it seem this magical cure might not work for everyone. Dr Fayyaz Ahmed, a neurologist and trustee of The Migraine Trust said, ‘There is no evidence that daith piercing work to help migraine.’

But hey, it looks cute, and if it just so happens to cure your migraine, even better!
