How did the idea of earrings and piercings come about? Was it like, "Hey, your ear skin looks very plain and boring. Can I poke it with this shiny metal piece?" "OK!" "And if that looks good can I poke this metal thing in you lips, tongue, eyebrows, maybe your nipples, and anything else I can poke?" "Ok, sounds like a great idea!" amirite?

(.-.): true, but still, like the idea of gauges and what not. and nipples. besides the church of body modification, what church says pierce your nipples and you clit and what not? that idea had to come from somewhere.
