Like tattoos, piercings are fun body mods that allow people to express themselves, sometimes in a rather painful and peculiar way. Some go for the full-bodied look while many opt for the one eccentric piece of jewelry that will get people taking a second look.
Check out the slideshow below for strange piercings that will have you cringing in pain.
Implications - Body modification is more popular than ever thanks to high-rating shows such as L.A. Ink. Body modification has become a way of self-expression as well as an art form. Those who want to modify their bodies tend to have a personal connection or reason as to why they chose to do so.
