Some people do pierce for religious or spiritual reasons. Among the Dogon tribe Of Mali, the piercing of the lip has religious significance, they believe that the world was created by their ancestor spirit "Noomi" weaving thread through her teeth, but instead of thread out came speech. There are piercings which are traditional to the devotees of the Hindu faith. In the western world today, body piercing and body mutilation. Nose rings, eyebrow rings, belly rings, tongue studs, multiple earrings, nipple rings, tattoos and other disfigurements are more than an identifiable sub-culture - it is all part of an aggressive fashion statement which is challenging the teaching of the Christian Church.

While some piercings do have some religious significance, most piercing is cultural rather than religious. Most piercings have more tribal significance and have little to do with religion.
