Trends change almost daily, but piercings have remained popular for centuries. The only thing that changed is the different places where people prefer piercings. Your body is a canvas, and piercing is another way to decorate it.


The pressure to keep up with fashion is real. You don't want to look disgusted when your young friend shows you her septum. Getting a piercing is a personal choice, no pain, no gain.

Whether you saw an Instagram page of piercings and tattoos or you always wanted a piercing but were waiting to get out of your parents' roof to get one, the reasons to pierce a tiny hole in your body can be endless. Piercing might also be your way of expressing love, just like tattoos.

With an infinite sea of jewelry to choose from, it's hard to resist piercings. Here are some of the most popular piercings in the USA:

Mostly popular among guys, this one is preferred by people for various reasons. It looks exceptionally erotic and sexy, and the most common goal observed for getting a tongue piercing is sexual gratification.

5. Nipple Piercing

Nipple piercing is equally popular among men and women. While some predict it makes your nipples more sensitive, some say it numbs them.
