What are piercings?

Piercings are punctures made in a specific part of your body. The holes are then filled with a piece of jewellery of your choice. The most popular body parts to be pierced are the ears, nose and belly buttons. Piercings are a beautiful way to adorn your body. One could go for a nice and simple ear piercing which goes with their simple and subtle personality or one could adopt a more glitzy and shiny alternative. Piercings add to your entire look and make you appear more unique. People get various parts of their body pierced as each piercing adds a different kind of appeal to one's personality.
