Body piercings and tattoos are a great way to express yourself and many celebrities feel the same way. Many celebrities have tattoos but piercings are becoming more popular. Body piercing and modification has been apart of society and religion for thousands of years. Piercings, tattoos, and scarification were all used some way in cultural, or religious practices. A lot of tribal villages and communities would get piercings, and tattoos to mark their own, and also to let their enemy know who they are. Now piercings are still used for that same purpose but in the United States we use body modification as a form of expression and art. Even public figures have piercings and tattoos, from famous rappers and singers to athletes. One of the most popular rappers Lil Wayne has a few piercings himself. He is completely tattooed but he also has spider bites and an eyebrow ring. Body modification and piercings is something that will be timeless and isn’t specific to gender or race. Another popular rapper/singer Travie McCoy is also tatted up with stretched lobes, a pierced septum, and labret. So for those who think that certain piercings are only for women, your wrong don’t be afraid to get adventurous with your piercings.
