this is an interesting thread..........I am an Indian & piercings & tattooes are such a cultural part of us!!!!!!
The girl child's earlobes are pierced traditionally on the 28 th day after birth:)
yup.............I am not kidding.Even the boys ears are pierced but it has a scientific reason that the ear lobe is hernia point & puncturing it ensures men dont get hernia!!!!!!!!!!
I have my earlobes pierced & so does my daughter.My son refused though:)
I have a tattoo on my upper arm of hindu auspicious symbol of OM & Indian god Ganeshas silhoutte:)
