National Piercing Day is observed each year on May 16th. The day was created to promote piercing. Many stores, shops and salons across the country celebrate this day by offering piercing specials and promotions.
Body piercing is dated back to ancient times and has been used for everything from artistic expression to medical treatment and is even used in some religious ceremonies.
Ever wondered who is the “World’s Most Pierced Woman?” According to the Guinness World Records it’s Elaine Davidson. In May of last year it was reported that Elaine had 9,800 piercings.

I have no interest in competing with Miss Davidson, I have 5 piercings and that’s enough for me.
This is me getting my nose re-pierced in Palm Springs, CA by tattoo artist and body piercer Ruben Chops in 2013. I had originally pierced it in 1991. I highly recommend my friend Ruben Chops! If you’re interested in a tattoo or body piercing click here to contact him through Facebook.
