Roughly twenty years ago, Pulp Fiction had a scene where a woman explained her piercings. She talked about how the needle was part of the whole rebellion against the system. She went through all eighteen piercings, including the explanation for the tongue piercing. Trust me, in 1994, audiences were like, "What the f*ck is up with all the piercings? Gross." Within 5 years, it was cliché for college girls to get a tongue piercing for a semester. Now, this is old news, plus where are the tattoos!!!!
