Body art primarily implies the popular tattooing, trendy piercing and painting of the body. Other categories of body art involve scarification, body shaping, scalpel ling etc. Initially these trends were not well received in the society. Now with more and more people and even famous personalities doing body art, it has become one of the hottest trends in the society. Tattooing the skin is almost permanent, but dyeing with henna is temporary. Piercing various parts of the body can be painful and infectious. Jewelries have been designed to wear after piercing the body parts. Scarification will leave permanent color on the skin. Body arts are appreciated so long as they are not detrimental to the health of the person.
