With the free the nipple movement in full swing, thousands of men and women across the nation are taking things a step further: the #NoNipples days are upon us.
Yes, you read that right. The hottest cosmetic trend of 2018 is nipple removal. First made famous by Zac Efron, John Mayer was quick to jump on the bandwagon, which then made the public aware of this hot new nipple-less look.
Though the exact numbers for cosmetic procedures can be difficult to ascertain, it’s estimated that roughly 9,000 Americans have become nipple-free since the beginning of the year.
“When I used to run long distance, my shirt would rub my nipples raw,” said Dan Karnizakes. “Ever since I had my nipples removed, I can run without dealing with the pain of that friction.”
Cosmetic experts say that people opt for nipple removal for many reasons. For some, their nipples have caused them pain in some way or another, for others it’s an aesthetic choice, and for many the decision is driven by the desire to desexualize their body.
What we do know is that the nipple free lifestyle looks like it’s here to stay.
