STREET BODY JEWELRY

If you tread the streets of Davao city you can find many of these guys peddling body jewelry, these are these metal pieces that are used to adorn the ears, the tongue, the nose, the navel or anywhere around an enthusiast’s body. 

According to recorded history, this form of body modification - piercing and adorning ones body by inserting all these metal stuff started from way back some 5,000 years ago in Rome, men pricked their nipples and insert some twigs on it as a symbol of manhood and bravery.. oouuuch! 

Fast forward 2011, twigs has past its time, these metal stuffs play dominant among aficionados now, some even will just find a comfortable seat at the side of this black velvet and do their procedure … while I understand these are hypoallergenic, I wonder if these are hygienic. I've seen lot’s of teens with little balls on at the tip of their tongue, rings and balls on their ears, navels some even with prominent facial piercings. 

While this has been the trend among these subculture and it’s tolerated, I would argue that the mainstream still don’t welcome such. I’m not sure if this trade is covered or being attended to by the folks that takes charge of our public health. 

You, how would like a nose ring with a feather on the side .... hehehe! I kept laughing, I know it's ticklish..lol.
