Body decoration services in Ames offer body piercing and tattooing. Piercing involves making a hole in the skin to insert jewelry, tattoos are designs on the skin made with needles and colored ink. Tattoos are often for permanent stay on the body. It may be possible to remove them but it would be painful and result in scarring of skin. Piercing may be opted for any part of the body like eyebrows, lip, navel, tongue and not just the nose or earlobes where one would traditionally think of wearing jewelry.
