With an increased tolerance and popularity of tattoos in modern society , more and more liberal research on the topics of tattoos come up ; however, little research has ever been done on the existence and structure of tattoo culture in modern society.

How many of you know how much about the tattoo culture , are you in or out? If you are in, then how much do you know the difference between body piercing and tattooing? How many world famous religious or regional tattoo culture do you know ?

Distinguish Tattooing and Body Piercing

Tattooing ,as an body art form, has been claimed over the years by many countries, tribal and ethnic groups. In many cases it is the same scenario of what came first the chicken or the egg. We will probably never really know who were the first people to mark their skins.

But we do know, and indeed that there is much evidence proves this ancient and totally unique practice has been carried out since the beginning of time . Therefore , the Body Decoration is nothing new to modern people.


A tattoo, or dermal pigmentation, is a mark made by inserting pigment into the skin for decorative or other reasons. Tattoos on humans are a type of decorative body modification, while tattoos on animals are most commonly used for identification or branding.

Fans are obsessed with celebrity tattoos. What do they say? What do they mean? Sometimes its obvious… Sometimes we just don’t know. This kind of tattoo is over the top crazy. Lil Wayne’s “fear God” eye lid tattoo is a good explanation for why he is almost never seen on camera without a pair of sunglasses.

Body piercing usually refers to the piercing of a part of the human body for the purpose of wearing jewelry in the opening created.


Body piercing is a form of body modification. The word “piercing” can refer to the act or practice of body piercing, or to a specific pierced opening in the body. Some people practice piercing for religious or other cultural reasons, while many individuals, particularly in the modern West, choose to be pierced for spiritual, ornamental, or sexual reasons.

So what exactly does a piercing mean today?


Today, it can literally means anything. Some people view it as a form of self-expression. Others do it for symbolic reasons like overcoming a personal hardship.


Someone else might have body piercings because they feel it’s aesthetically pleasing. The reasons really depend on the individual, but one thing is certain. Body piercings are now mainstream and they’re here to stay.


In a word, no matter what kind of art, they are parts of our life art. You can appreciate it or hate it.. no matter what, you cant stop their blooming steps, just like a newly-born baby ,you cant stop their growing up life…
