Body Piercing (noun) – The piercing of holes in parts of the body other than the ear lobes in order to insert rings or other decorative objects. (Oxford English Dictionary)
Body piercing has been practiced around the world for aesthetic, spiritual, sexual and cultural reasons at least 5000 years. Over the past millennia, it has gained and lost popularity and fashionability in various cultures, including ancient Roman, Indian, American & African tribal. In Western culture in has continued to gain in popularity in sub-cultural contexts since the 2nd half of the last century, becoming part of mainstream culture in the 1990s.
