Nose
Nose piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) was first recorded in the Middle East approximately 4,000 years ago. It is mentioned in The Bible in Genesis 24:22. Abraham requested his oldest servant to find a wife for his son Isaac, and the servant found Rebekah. o­ne of the gifts he gave her was a "golden earring" - the original Hebrew word used was Shanf, which also translates as "nose-ring".

The practice of nose-piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) is still followed among the nomadic Berber and Beja tribes of Africa, and the Bedouins of the Middle East. The size of the ring denotes the wealth of the family. It is given by the husband to his wife at the marriage, and is her security if she is divorced.

Nose piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) was bought to India in the 16th Century from the Middle East by the Moghul emperors. In India a stud (Phul) or a ring (Nath) is usually worn in the left nostril. It is sometimes joined to the ear by a chain, and in some places both nostrils are pierced. The left side is the most common to be pierced in India, because that is the spot associated in Ayuvedra (Indian medicine) with the female reproductive organs. This piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) is supposed to make childbirth easier and lessen period pain.

In the west nose piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) first appeared among the hippies who traveled to India in the late 1960's. It was later adopted by the Punk movement of the late 1970's as a symbol of rebellion against conservative values. The piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) of the septum is probably the second most common piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) among primitive peoples after ear piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) - it's even more common than nostril piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul). It's probably popular for the same reasons as nose piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul), with the added attraction that the piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) can be stretched and large pieces of jewelry can be inserted, i.e. pig's tusks, pieces of bone, feathers, pieces of wood, etc.

The septum piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) is particularly prevalent among warrior cultures. This probably has to do with the fact that large tusks through the septum give the face a fierce appearance. The use of septum tusks is very prevalent in Irian Jaya, New Guinea and the Solomon Islands, pig's tusks being the most popular. Among the Asmat tribe of Irian Jaya the most prestigious septum tusk is the "Otsj" - this is a large bone plug, which can be as thick as 25mm. They are usually made of the leg bones of a pig, but occasionally they are made from the Tibia bone of an enemy slain in battle.

The Septum piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) was beloved by the Aztecs, the Mayans, and the Incas. They wore a variety of jewelry, but jade and gold were the most popular because of their religious associations. The modern day Cuna Indians of Panama continue this practice by wearing thick pure gold rings in their septum.

The piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) is also popular in India, Nepal, and Tibet, a pendant "Bulak" is worn, and some examples are so large as to prevent the person being able to eat, the jewelry has to be lifted up during meals. In Rajasthan in Himachal Pradesh these Bulak are particularly elaborate, and extremely large.

Septum piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) was widely practiced by many North American Indian tribes. The name of the Nez Perc, tribe of Washington State, stems from their practice of piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) the septum. Nez Perc, is French for "nose pierced," and was given to the tribe by the French fur traders. Australian aboriginals pierced the septum and passed a long stick or bone through the piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) to flatten the nose, as they believed a flat nose to be the most desirable.

Among the Bundi tribe of the Bismarck Ranges of Papua New Guinea the piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) is performed using the thin end of the Sweet Potato plant (Ogai Iriva), usually at age 18-22. The age at which the piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) is done varies greatly between different tribes. Some tribes perform the rite at age 9-10.

Naval
Navel piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) is a modern invention and has never been recorded in primitive cultures. However the navel has long been recognized as an erogenous zone because of the difference between men's and women's stomachs. Women's stomachs differ from men's in that they are more rounded in the lower part, are longer than men's, have a greater distance between the navel and genitals, and are more deeply recessed than men's. These features are often exaggerated by artists to make women appear more feminine in paintings.

Lip
The piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) of the lips for the insertion of objects into them is very widely practiced throughout the world. However o­nly two tribes pierce the lips with a ring: the Dogon tribe of Mali, and the Nuba of Ethiopia. Among the Dogon the piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) of the lip has religious significance since they believe that the world was created by their ancestor spirit "Noomi" weaving thread through her teeth, but instead of thread, out came speech. All the other lip piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) that is practiced in the world is done with labrets, which can either be a pin of wood, ivory, metal, or even, in o­ne case, quartz crystals. Among the tribes of Central Africa, and South America the labret piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) is stretched to extremely large proportions, and large wooden or clay plates are inserted.

Among the ancient Aztecs and Mayans, labret piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) was reserved for male members of the higher castes. They wore beautiful labrets fashioned from pure gold in the shape of serpents, golden labrets with stones inset and o­nes of jade or obsidian (labret in Aztec "Tentetl"). The Native Americans of the Pacific Northwest, and the Inuit peoples of northern Canada and Alaska wore labrets fashioned from walrus ivory, abalone shell, bone, obsidian, and wood.

Genitals
Male genital piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) have a wild and varied history, with instances showing up in numerous cultures and times as the samples below will bear out.

The piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) of the glans of the penis for the insertion of jewelry is a very ancient practice. The apadravya piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) is mentioned in the Kama Sutra (700AD) and the palang piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) has been practiced in SE Asia for several hundred years. Several genital piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) originate in Asia where piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) has been practiced since antiquity.

The palang (also called ampallang) is a piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) that occurred among the Kayan, Kenyah, Kelabit, Dayak, and Iban tribes of Sarawak o­n the Island of Borneo. It involves piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) the glans of the penis horizontally, and the insertion of a barbell. The term "palang" translates as "crossbar" in Iban and can be related to the timber roof supports of the longhouses of the tribes of the area, and symbolizes the protective power of the male over the family.

The word "guiche" is supposed to mean "an opening" in French. The actual translation is "window." This piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) is supposed to be a Samoan puberty ritual. However, there is little evidence for that. The puberty ritual practiced in Samoa is subincision. This is where the underneath of the foreskin is cut down to the frenulum.

The hafada piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) is a scrotum piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) o­n the side of the scrotum, where there is a crease. It is supposed to have originated in Arabia and spread through Northern Africa and the Middle East. The piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) is carried out as a puberty ritual, and it is generally done o­n the left hand side. The piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) was supposedly bought back to Europe by French Foreign Legionaries when they were stationed in what is now Lebanon and Syria.

Piercing of the foreskin for the insertion of jewelry is as old as circumcision. It goes back far beyond the earliest recorded history. During the games of Ancient Greece, the athletes performed nude, and to prevent their penises moving about they bound the foreskin with a ribbon and tied it to the base of the penis. This ribbon or leather thong was called the "Kynodesme" from the Greek "Kuon" for foreskin, and "Desmos" for fastening band. This temporary practice probably led to the permanent piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) of the foreskin, either to prevent slaves and athletes from having sex, or to prevent them from having erections. The Roman's used a practice called Infibulation. It involved two piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) going through the foreskin (or Labia in women) and a lock (Fibula) being placed therein.

The Prince Albert piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) is named after Prince Albert, who was the husband of Queen Victoria of England. He was reputed to have had this piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) done prior to his marriage to the queen around 1825, at that time Beau Brummel started the craze for ultra tight men's trousers. Because the pants were so tight, the penis needed to be held to o­ne side or the other so as not to create an unsightly bulge. To accomplish this some men had their penis pierced to allow it to be held by a hook o­n the inside of the trousers. This piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) was called a "Dressing Ring" at the time because tailors would ask if a gentleman dressed to the left or the right and tailor the trousers accordingly.

Piercing of the male genitals is fairly old and even mentioned in the Kama Sutra. However, female genital piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) appears to be a little rarer, but have now become a popular way of enhancing sexual pleasure.

Ear
Since this region of the body is fairly easy to pierce and heal, it appears that the oldest (and probably first) of mankind's piercings were done o­n the earlobes. To illustrate, a mummified body, found to be over 5,000 years old, was recently discovered frozen in an Austrian glacier. The body had pierced ears whose holes had been stretched to 7-11mm in diameter.

Anthropologists believe that the ears were probably first pierced as a charm - to repel evil spirits and prevent bad luck. Many early tribes believed that demons could enter the body through an orifice and that piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) the ears with metals would prevent them from taking possession of a person's spirit.

Ear-piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) has also been used by many tribes as a rite of passage. In Borneo, a child's parents each pierce an ear as a symbol of the child's dependence o­n its life givers. Other societies have used ear-piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) as a puberty rite.

Ear-piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) has also been used to connote o­ne's position in society. From the ancient Egyptians to Elizabethan England, both men and women adorned their ears to reflect their wealth and status.

Tongue
Tongue piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) was practiced in a ritual form by the ancient Aztecs, Mayas of Central America and the Haida, Kwakiutul, and Tlinglit tribes of the American Northwest. The tongue was pierced to draw blood to propitiate the gods and to create an altered state of consciousness so that the priest or shaman could communicate with the gods. Tongue piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) is o­ne of the most popular piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul); it's shocking, provocative and fantastic for oral sex (for both sexes), but at the same time no o­ne need know you have it.

Eyebrow
Unlike nose piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul), which was first recorded in the Middle East approximately 4,000 years ago, eyebrow piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) is relatively modern. This style of piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) appears to have become popular over the last few decades, with early instances seen in the punk movement of the 1970s. A possible reason this type of piercing (dream tattoo dövme piercing bağdat caddesi kadıköy istanbul) has not been around for a long time is that it can be very problematic and difficult to heal.
