History of body piercing
Body piercing is a trending thing right now.People pierce their bodies to wear all sorts of jewelry from earrings to rings going through their mouth’s.But did you ever wonder where did that come from? Well i’m going to tell you that right now.
Body piercing started a long time ago known to be a thing even 1500 B.C.!!! that’s almost 5000 years away from our time.It was used to be a thing that by people’s belief’s let them talk to the gods better and that they’ll hear their prayers first instead of others.A few years ago a mummy named Ötzi was found near the Austrian-Italian border that had pierced ears proving that this is an ancient thing .
There are rumors that roman centurions(elite class fighters and war generals) had their nipples pierced and used those piercings as cape holder’s.
In ancient Egypt body piercing was a symbol of class and bravery and every pharaoh had their ears pierced.This is a pharaoh’s sarcophagus that has the exact piercings as the pharaoh.
No one knows the exact time when piercing was invented but it’s grown a lot from it’s invention time it even has their own record standers with the most piercing on their face/back/body but i won’t post any images because they look extremely disgusting and gross.
My personal opinion on body piercing.
I don’t think it’s bad to have pierced body if you are willing to keep it for the rest of your life but don’t have too much pierced parts because it doesn’t look good it’s just creepy.
