My wife and I are 61. I’ve been trying to get her nips pierced. Her argument is that we are too old to get pierced. “That’s for 20 something people.”
Only in the last 15-20 or so years has it been for 20-somethings.
The roots of American body piercing, from the 1960s on…. primarily people in their 40s-60s.
The youth culture surge came in the late 1980s early 1990s, thanks in part to the book MODERN PRIMITIVES, our own PAUL KING doing a navel piercing on Alicia Silverstone in an Aerosmith video and the advent of the Internet and BME.
You guys are the perfect demographic for body piercing…. someone who wants it because they want it, not because they’re trying to fit in.
