Most folks stop at their ears but many people have embraced extreme piercings in recent years. Gauges, jewelry that stretches the pierced holes, account for the majority of these piercings. However, you also find studs popping out of people’s skin in the form of subdermal implants that anchor the jewelry to the skin. Most people with over-the-top piercings are in the body modification, AKA body mod, community. This is due to the extremity of their piercings which dramatically alter the site they inhabit.
We wanted to learn just how wild extreme piercings can get so we looked to social media to discover emerging trends and standout piercings. What we discovered both scared and shocked us. This being said, extreme piercings are not for the faint of heart as they appear rather graphic and surprising. Proceed at your own peril. So, if you’d like to see some haunting images, you’ve come to the right list. Let’s take a look at some scary stuff!
