Ancient Mayas and Aztecs wore earrings and Pierce made of gold, jade and volcanic glass, and American Indians still used ivory, pearl shells and wood. Peirce lips are just as popular today as in the past, although there are only two tribes for which it is known that placed pierces the lips, the Nuba tribe in Ethiopia and the Dogon tribe in Mali.

Many wonder what the purpose of any type of piercing and recording body as tattooing. The answer often said fad and environmental influences and peers.
