People celebrate National Piercing Day on the 16th of May. Though it should be noted that this is not an "official” holiday and is not recognised by any country or state in an official capacity, this celebration of body modification has come about in exactly the same way other celebratory days have. Started online in 2007, lovers of piercings soon look to this event with relish as a great excuse to come together and celebrate their common interest.
Make National Piercing Day your favourite day of the year by marking May 16th as the day you get that awesome new body modification you’ve have your eye on for a while. You can make your own fun on this day, getting your friends together and doing a video about your love of piercings or you can all go en masse for a night of piercing celebrations and getting yourself some excellent new accessories. However you wish to spend National Piercing day, make sure you wear your body modifications loud and proud so everyone can see what an alternative style you have!
