Body piercing is a form of body modification where a hole is made in the skin or cartilage, and a piece of jewelry is inserted into the hole. The most commonly pierced areas are the ears, nose, lips, tongue, eyebrows, and belly button. Body piercing has been practiced in various cultures for centuries and can be done for cultural, religious, or personal reasons.

Proper aftercare and hygiene are important to minimize these risks.
