About This Quiz

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 what our jobs or our peers might think. Regardless, you must think carefully about what type of piercing would suit you best. You have to ask yourself important questions and make the decision according to your life. Is your boss going to be weird about it? Or is it only to your satisfaction? As they say, location is everything!

Human beings have been adorning themselves since the dawn of time, sometimes as a matter of tribal ritual. It’s human nature to want to differentiate our attitudes toward life by decorating our bodies with clothing, or 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.

Let our quiz help you decide which piercing was made for you! We’ll help you know if you can carry off huge gauges, or if you should keep it visible only to yourself and your closest friends!
