Permanently altering our appearance helps us stand out in the world! But it’s never a decision to be taken lightly. Some of us simply don’t care about what anyone thinks, but others have to consider the possible consequences when it comes to our jobs, families and peers. Regardless, you must think carefully about what type of piercing would suit you best. Is your boss going to be weird about it? Will your family disown you? Do you even care? As they say, location is everything!

Human beings have been adorning themselves since the dawn of time, often as a matter of tribal ritual. It’s human nature to want to modify and decorate our bodies with clothing, makeup, piercings or tattoos. Any piercing you get is going to send a message to the world about who you are. More importantly, it should make you feel like the rock star you know you are inside.
