Lip piercing is a way to modify your body by creating personalized holes at some spots of your lips and surrounding area then inserting a piece of jewelry. There are up to 10 types of lip piercing, so you can check them out and pick your favorite. Lip piercing has a rich history in African and ancient American culture. The practice was widespread to women at that time. However, nowadays, many men find lip piercing attractive and even make them more masculine.
