Body piercing, a form of body modification, is 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.

Body piercing is a great way for us to decorate our bodies and still have the ability to change or remove the jewelry at our will. Some choose to get piercings for aesthetic reasons, some for the adrenaline rush, others for spiritual, cultural or religious reasons. Piercings can even serve a sexual function.
