Oral piercing is among the younger generation’s very common body art. In Western culture, piercing, regarded as a growing phenomenon, often represents all the fashion, danger, daring, independence or sexuality, whereas other individuals do it on impulse and for spiritual reasons or to boost perceived body image. The goal of this paper is to present the local and systemic complications and the normal oral piercing effects. It is critical in our ever-more-cosmetic society to have adequate information to provide quality treatment to such patients and to educate the patient about the potential complications of oral piercings before the procedure. With closer follow-up of patients with oral and perioral piercing, dental professionals may have greater understanding of the adverse effects as compared to other practitioners. In order to detect early detection, individuals with oral / perioral piercing should also visit the dentist at regular intervals for oral inspection.
