Today the author wants to talk about one thing she never saw in any scientific publications about the possible harmful effects that the use of piercings could cause in the human body. What she will say in this article came from the observation from her daily clinical practice in Brazil.

There is some article sin the literature, one of them written by Holbrook in an article entitled Body piercing: complications and prevention of health risks, where the author is saying about some complications related to the physical aspects of when putting piercing inside the body. This complication could be: local or systemic infections (viral hepatitis), bleeding, toxic shock syndromes, and distant infections such as endocarditis and brain abscesses have been reported. Other side effects that the use of piercing could induce is nerve damage, keloid formation and scarring [1].
