I was shocked in gym class to see how many girls have piercings in other parts of the body. I'm also worried about my little brother because the guys in school sometimes take piercing to a real extreme. (see Genesis ) In Jewish law, the main determination is whether a particular body piercing is done for a constructive purpose. As for men, if we're talking about a society where men also pierce their ears or other parts of their body for beauty, it is permitted – see "Rashi" Exodus 32:2. 182:1) Also, if it is done for erotic reasons, it is forbidden as a violation of the command to "be holy." (Igrot Moshe – E. ) But the real question is why you want it: If it's to be fashionable and "in," know that there are many people walking around today who regret having done things in their youth that cannot be undone. I think there are more constructive ways to express yourself than to make permanent marks on your body.
Excessive body piercing without a constructive purpose is considered making a wound, which the Torah forbids (Deut. If, however, it is common for only women to pierce, but not for men, it is forbidden to don a woman's attire or jewelry, and therefore is not allowed. In terms of your own personal growth and development, the piercing is probably not a very good idea, since it may mean identifying with a certain strata of society who may not best represent your own goals and values.
