A tattoo and piercing, each by itself, is beautiful body art and a great way to express your style and enhance your appearance. It’s not uncommon for a person to have both a tattoo and piercing. In fact, body art enthusiasts often have at least a few tattoos and piercing.
What’s not so common, though, it a tattoo and piercing combination. Piercings are a great way to enhance the look of a tattoo, and the tattoo and piercing combinations are becoming a little more popular. Different types of piercings may be used in these unique body art combinations. For instance, a tattoo in an are like the belly button or ear can usually be enhanced by a traditional piercing straight through a thin piece of flesh. Tattoos in other areas, however, like the back require surface piercings or dermal anchors.
