Body jewelry has been worn throughout history for a variety of reasons from religion to showing the class status of a family. Jewelry has been used to accent clothing, facial features, and other parts of the body such as naval rings.
Today, body jewelry is more popular today than ever before. Once Americans saw, the unique beauty of nose rings while visiting India in the 1960’s this became a huge and important beginning to all types of body jewelry we see today. America was more than likely the last place on earth for body jewelry to be in such demand, believed to have been caused by the Puritan beliefs that are so prominent in America since its early days. In America, body jewelry is not a sign of religion or even a show of status, but is a more personal aspect of ones own personality. Of course, there are still some that turn their head when seeing someone with all kinds of piercings, believing they are “bad people”, however, today you will see many stars with all kinds of piercings as well, turning an unexpected expression of oneself into a huge fashion statement.
The most common body piercings include the ear lobes, nose, eyebrow, and naval, even though other body parts are also being pierced such as the nipple. As fashion trends, change so will the styles of body piercings and the places you will find body jewelry.
