Tattoos and piercings have been around for as long as people have known how to permanently paint and stab through flesh. Eastern societies have been tattooing and piercing body parts for a thousand years and even though the art of piercing and tattooing are still gaining acceptance in Western cultures, the practice has become more and more acceptable.
Getting pierced and tattooed comes with pain and time to get a piece of art permanently etched into your skin. Though society is growing in their acceptance, there is still some stigma surrounding those who sport tattoos and piercings that aren’t as conventional as the next.

Having piercings in certain areas like your taint, penis, nipples, belly button, and ears can add a new level of sensitivity to that body region, adding new stimulation to areas you never knew possible. A Prince Albert can mean an entirely whole new realm for those on the receiving end of that D. Having an ear, cartilage, nose, nipples, or tongue pierced has become completely ordinary in the 21stcentury.

As technology advances, so does the depth and artistry of tattooing and piercing, making whatever you desire that much more obtainable. So, tattoos and piercings: Taboo? Or Totally cool?
