Extreme Body Piercing

I’ve just seen a programme on the TV about people who have had extreme body piercing done.  One guy had a mandible piercing, where they stick a bar through the lower jaw from under the tongue which exits below the chin – yeuk..!  Another guy had a 1 inch diameter hole through the back of his heel, from one side to the other – oh my god I was nearly sick.  There were collar bone piercings and one guy had a bar through his knob, from one side to the other.

Seriously, why do people feel the need to do this?  I know most people say it’s freedom to do whatever they want to their own bodies; it’s an expression of individuality; it’s art, yadda yadda yadda.  Personally I reckon it shows a deep seated anxiety about the way they look which suggests a self esteem issue.  I’ve had my ears pierced because earrings look pretty but most of the other stuff is just disgusting.
