Body piercing and body jewelries have been a trend for a long time already. Just in case you didn’t know, body piercing has been done in many tribes or natives in every country in the earlier civilization to show their social standing and class.
These days, both men and women of different age range are drawn or attracted to body piercing or body modification. There are so many reasons why some people go with the trend and being different from everybody else or it’s their way of expressing their personality and making a statement are just some of them. Peer pressure or rebellion can also be their reasons why brave individuals go to such procedure.
Jewelries have long been part of our history and fashion. It’s a form of body adornment and the use of body jewelries and even tattoos can define their position in their tribes or may symbolize wealth/power back in the early civilization. I can still remember watching a documentary on TV about some tribes where women wear gold bracelets in their arms up until their armpits and gold chunky neck rings that made their necks elongate. Those that wear them regard them as wealthy, famous and have position among their community.
Nowadays, there is a wide range of jewelries that we all can enjoy. Wearing them can instantly make our entire outfit great. Body jewelries on the other hand are for those bold individuals that can withstand piercing in their body. Piercings can be done on the nose, eyebrow, tongue, belly button, nipples, navel, private parts and more.
