In the past 15 years, body art, including piercings, has become extremely popular to convey individuality in Las Vegas as well as globally. Body piercings have a long history dating back centuries. This includes piercing the ear lobes to wear earrings which became acceptable in contemporary times. However, piercing other parts of the body went mainstream in the 2000s. Popular places to pierce include the ear, nose, eyebrow, cheek, tongue, nipple, navel and genitals in both men and women. Along with selecting a sterile, clean place with expert artists, jewelry such as a ring, stud, post or other accessory is also important. Below are a few places to create a statement using body piercings.
