Tats and body piercing are just another way of saying "I'm different from the rest." Not to be content with piercing ears, noses, lips, etc. these guys have used some imagination in decorating their faces. Like any procedure, choosing the right place and the right person to do your piercing is vitally important.
Tattooing and body piercing have come a long way in acceptance, but many cities and counties still outlaw the practice. States have attempted to limit tats and piercings by age or requiring parental consent. While the main stream media runs a lot of scare stories, it's hard to find anyone anymore who doesn't have a tattoo or piercing.
