Body piercing dates all the way back to ancient times, being found on some of the oldest mummified remains. While ear and nose piercings were commonly found on these remains, the widespread piercing of other body parts took place during the 1970s. Body piercing, a form of body modification, is a way people express their individuality. Some do it for fun, for religious and/or traditional purposes and to commemorate major events. Whatever your reason might be, visit some of the best places in Atlanta to get pierced.
