This extreme Achilles piercing just goes to show that people will pierce anything. The pictures here are of an Achilles ‘piercing’ on a performance artist called Mr. Tetanus (you could not make a better name up for this article if you tried).

To give you some idea of how extreme this is, the piercing is around twelve years old; when the bar comes out, the exterior hole closes up within minutes and the hole closes fully inside within 20 minutes. Stats for Painful Piercings Trending: Older & Buzzing
