Facial piercing is a big deal these days.
It’s a way to express your individuality without being overtly sexy.
But it’s also becoming increasingly common, and the trend has been on the rise for years.
While facial piercings are an increasingly popular part of beauty and wellness routines, the term itself is relatively new, and its meaning has changed a lot over time.
A new study out today from the University of British Columbia and the University in Melbourne looked at the history of facial piercers in the United States and the impact of their use on their communities.
It found that for many decades, the practice was viewed as a form of beauty.
And for some, it even helped them feel less socially isolated.
“I think we are seeing a trend where there are increasing numbers of people using facial piercer, and it’s certainly a part of our culture now,” says Lauren Miller, a senior research fellow in the university’s Department of Sociology and Anthropology.
“It’s also been shown to be beneficial to people with chronic health conditions, such as depression and anxiety.”
Miller says she found that the use of facial tattooing, which is a form the tattoo artist creates to mark the skin, is linked to a number of health outcomes, including lower rates of depression and depression-related anxiety.
“The tattooing itself doesn’t necessarily necessarily result in any health benefit, but the tattooing is associated with a lot of positive health outcomes,” she says.
But there is another, less tangible benefit.
It also led to increased numbers of piercers being involved in the community.
“In the past, piercers were often just in their home town and their community was just the community,” Miller says.
Miller’s team also found that facial piercing has been associated with decreased rates of breast cancer and cardiovascular disease in the general population. “
It doesn’t mean people are going to be more likely to engage in socializing with the public, Miller says, but she does think it may make some people feel more comfortable.
“So we’re not saying that piercers are doing anything wrong or that they’re promoting breast cancer or cardiovascular disease, but we’re saying that we think that the association may be linked to the increased tattooing.” “
There is some evidence that this is associated in part with the increased use of tattoos,” Miller explains.
“So we’re not saying that piercers are doing anything wrong or that they’re promoting breast cancer or cardiovascular disease, but we’re saying that we think that the association may be linked to the increased tattooing.”
Miller and her team also wanted to find out if there was an association between facial piercing and depression.
It turns out there is.
“We found that women who used facial piercing as a part, or a major part, of their health care regimen experienced higher rates of depressive symptoms and lower levels of self-reported depression than those who didn’t,” she notes.
Miller thinks that, in part, the connection may be due to people’s perception of their facial pierces as being more intimate and intimate-looking.
“People are less willing to disclose their physical health concerns and have a greater willingness to conceal that information than they are when it comes to facial piercin’ or tattoos,” she explains.
She notes that the same is true of the use and use of the tattoo on the arm, which can be seen in the images above.
Miller says that while the researchers can’t say for sure why the increased prevalence of facial tattoos is linked with facial piercies, it’s possible that these types of piercances are perceived as less intimate.
“What people might say is that they are less likely to disclose physical health issues and less likely than they used to be to share their health concerns with people,” she adds.
The researchers also looked at how people with depression were using their piercés.
Miller and colleagues found that people who had more frequent facial piercas had lower rates and levels of depression.
Miller believes that there is a connection between the use a piercing as part of a wellness regimen and depression symptoms, as well as anxiety and depression that can lead to depression and other mental health issues.
“These are all symptoms of depression, and these are symptoms of having depressive symptoms,” she tells Ars.
“This might be the reason why people are using a piercing to feel less lonely.”
Miller’s findings are in line with other studies that have found that tattoos are linked to depression, anxiety, and depression, among other things.
For instance, the National Institute of Mental Health has found that tattoo use can lead people to develop “anxiety-related negative symptoms” that can include feelings of emptiness and depression over time, which in turn can lead them to engage with unhealthy behaviors.
