TAKING BODY PIERCING TOO FAR: These Seem Awkward As They Pierced Their Body Parts.

TAKING BODY PIERCING TOO FAR: These seem so painful as they pierced their sensitive body parts.

Body piercing is seen as form of body modification and beautification.It is also seen as the practice of puncturing or cutting a part of the human body, creating an opening in which jewelry may be worn, or where an implant could be inserted. The word piercing may also be refered to as the act or way of body piercing, or the system of creating an opening in the body.

This metonymically refers to the resulting decoration, or to the decorative jewelry used. Contrary to popular belief, that piercing is related to visual jewelry only, piercing implants alter body and/or skin profile and appearance (e.g. golden threads installed subdermal, platinum, titanium or medical grade steel subdermal implants). Although the history of body piercing is obscured by popular misinformation and by a lack of scholarly reference, ample evidence exists to document that it has been practiced in various forms by both sexes since ancient times throughout the world.

Ear piercing, eye piercing, stomach piercing, nose piercing...in short body piercing have been particularly widespread and are well represented in historical records and among grave goods. The oldest mummified remains ever discovered were sporting earrings, attesting to the existence of the practice more than 5,000 years ago. Nose piercing is documented as far back as 1500 BC. 

Weirdly, genital piercing have also been practiced by various cultures, with nipple piercing dating back at least to Ancient Rome while genital piercing is described in Ancient India c. 320 to 550 CE. The history of navel piercing is less clear. The practice of body piercing has waxed and waned in Western culture, but it has experienced an increase of popularity since World War II, with sites other than the ears gaining subcultural popularity in the 1970s and spreading to mainstream in the 1990s.


The reasons for piercing or not piercing are varied. Some people pierce for religious or spiritual reasons, while others pierce for self-expression, for aesthetic value, for sexual pleasure, to conform to their culture or to rebel against it. Some forms of piercing remain controversial, particularly when applied to some sensitive parts. In spite of the controversy, some people have practiced extreme forms of body piercing.


Contemporary body piercing practices emphasize the use of safe body piercing materials, frequently utilizing specialized tools developed for the purpose. Body piercing is an invasive procedure with some risks, including allergic reaction, infection, excessive scarring and unanticipated physical injuries.

In conclusion, I believe piercing of any part of the body Gould be one's idea or wish, yet sensitive parts should be avoided. Also, too much of body piercing could be irritating and abnormal.
