Why Get Pierced at Mantra Tattoo Today

 In Piercing

Piercing is one of the forms of individual expression that has persisted throughout thousands of years of human history. A piercing allows you to add a custom piece to your body that will give you style and a little change without it being permanent. There are many reasons to get a piercing, some might be very personal but in overall, people agree that it’s art and body decoration.

Reasons to Get Pierced Today

1. To stand out from the rest

According to a 2006 study led by a dermatologist, Amy J. Derick M.D., only 14% of people have piercings somewhere other than their ears. Adding some bling to your style will definitely make you stand out from a crowd.

2. To follow tradition

In some cultures, piercings are part of their traditions and heritage. In Asia, a nose piercing symbolizes the transition to adulthood for girls. The Pacific Islands also have strong traditions that include piercings and tattoos. The modern tribal movement has its roots within this culture, and there is much symbolism behind each art piece and piercing.

3. To commemorate

Piercings and tattoos can be done to act as a reminder, a memorial or a mark for a specific situation at a certain point of life. Since piercings are not permanent (minus the scar- really depends on the person and area), it is ideal for a person that doesn’t want to commit to a tattoo.
