These are the different types of body art:
Jewelry is the most common type. This is a temporary type which almost everybody wears (sometimes) like a ring or necklace.
Tattoos are a type of body art which is permanent. Tattoos are created by colored materials inserted beneath the skins surface. The most common reasons to get tattooed are:
- Wanting to show your individuality and uniqueness
- Belonging to a group that has tattoos
- Pleasing your partner
- Identifying with a (known for tattoos) subculture
Piercings are a temporary type (which may leave a scar when removed). Body piercing is the creation of an opening in the human body in which jewelry can be worn and the word piercing refers to this opening. The most common piercing is an earring, but you can get a piercing in almost everybody part of your body.
