Abstract Piercing ones body has become a popular fad in todays culture But for some people they dont know why they get a hole put through them They just seem to do it out of boredom or just the pure fun of doing something different It seems like piercing is a part of todays culture just like tattoos and dyed hair Its just another way for people to change how they look how they feel and how others perceive them The purpose of this study is to try and get a better understanding of why people get pierced Little was found but it helps break some ground into this area Introduction The phrase every bodys doing it seems to be an excuse for almost anything we do these days Whether we cut our hair wrong wear the wrong color or do something totally stupid we easily laugh away the embarrassment with the phrase that everybody is saying In fact the phrase itself has become a fad Why do we as a society tend to do things just because everyone else is doing them Perhaps people are all blindly following because we have not figured out exactly what we ourselves want to be doing People follow fads because it is easier for them to identify with other people when they are all alike However as people begin to define themselves the fads tend to change People move from being a trend follower to a trendsetter They branch out with something different and slowly but surely everyone begins to follow because according to them everybody is doing it In our own way we all change fads Our particular fad may not catch on but someones does Those who change f ads were once fad followers who have simply discovered how different they want to be Whether we follow or lead we all cycle throughout life an integral part of the defining fads
