The art of decorating the human body exists since the dawn of culture. In Ancient Egypt one would pierce their nipples to demonstrate their belonging to the aristocracy. Indian women still pierce their nose when they get married. Nowadays piercing is usually deprived of such kinds of ritual functions, but it?s still very popular as a means of self-expression. Body jewellery
is so varied, that every piercing is personal and therefore can tell a great deal about the person that?s wearing it.
