Septum piercing is one of the most popular piercings in native America and Alaska. Native American and Alaskan ethnic groups mostly use septum piercing. So here the question arises: what would be the counterculture history of piercings in America?
In native America, body piercing starts from "septum piercing." And it was popular among the Mayans, the Aztecs, and the nation of new guinea. These three nations adopted septum piercing the most, including nose piercings, ear piercings with bones and feathers to materialize wealth and fearlessness among the men.
If we look toward the past, in the age of 70s, JIM WARD was the one who ground in the first body piercing shop in the United States of America. And he was the one who gave fame to the barbells. And in the 16th century, in Europe, the king's court was where the working persons were known to pierce their ears.
Until the 1950s, ear-piercing did not take hold properly in the United States of America. And over time, for the first half of the 20th century, clip-on varieties for earrings were more appreciable and acceptable than ear piercings in the USA.
In the age of both ancient African and mesoamerican civilizations, nose and septum rings are appreciable and more popular and have an unusually long life. And if we make a comparison between nose and septum rings, nose rings came up in the United States and American society earlier than septum rings, and this is all because of a French chorister with a pet pig.
On the other hand, expanded ear piercings or stretched ear lobes are the traditions that have lived for many centuries in the United States of America, especially for ear lobes and lower lips. Many of the world's ethnic groups think that body modification is essential for us, that trends according to the culture.
In the piercing history of central and south America, girls with lip piercing were considered to have a more beautiful look. In an accident in America, body piercings were also considered as enhancement in sexuality, especially for women. So, in Aztecs and Mayans, most women also pierce lower or upper lips, mostly made of gold and jade materials that may also represent their religious facts and figures and are considered highly attractive and effective. Lips piercing in the united states of America was interested in strengthening the level of sexuality.
