The art of of shoving metal through different parts of the body. Often done by people who couldn't care less about what others think, and do it to express their individuality through body art. Others do it because they like the appearance, such as bellybutton, as its very overdone. Either way its a form of art.
I want an Anti-Eyebrow piercing, because its so rarely done.

Piercing is one kind of bod mod or body modification, along with tattoing... The word piercing is very general.., Well at least for me. It can be done on any.. and I mean any part of the body.. That's why it's called body piercing.

Having body piercings do make you look like a bad person but only to the eyes of conservative and narrow minded people.

Body piercings are a great way to express creativity and one's being artistic.

ear piercing, stretching, scalpelling, snug, industrial piercing, daith, rook, nose piercing, septum piercing, nostril piercing, brow piercing, anti eyebrows, nipple piercing, uvula, pocketing, and many others.
I like rachel's industrial piercing.. I think of getting pierced myself.. :-)

a precisely placed hole in the human body put their by someone who has hopefully trained a long time. Often owned by whiney,ungrateful people who aren't going to look after it and wouldn't dream of tipping their piercer though they'll happily tip a bartender for cracking the lid off a Budweiser.
Wow, that piercing didn't hurt a bit, well bye.
