    Not only do piercings give the person a certain edge to their image, but they may also be spiritually symbolic to some. While others associate some piercings with sexuality. In some cultures and countries, women get their ears pierced upon birth. Ear piercings are by far the most popular form, although people do pierce their tongues, lips, noses, nipples, and other parts of their body as well.
