    Default Question about meaning behind piercing locations

    Hi all i know this is a stupid question but was talking to a few people at work today. And the topic of piercings and the meaning of them came up (think because i've just got my lobe, 2nd nipple and PA done, though they dont know about the PA).

    So my question is can anyone tell me what the traditional and modern meaning for different piercings are? I know some have meaning and others dont.

    Im pretty sure the P.A. story about the dressing ring is a total myth. I can remember who started it but it was some guy in america who did it to make the piercing more well known or something. And the gladiator cape on is a myth aswell. Their capes were fixed to their chestplates where the nipples would be so some pple got it mixed up. Dont believe everything you hear kids
