Welcome Life Beyond Compulsive Body Piercing


Earrings are thought to have originated in Asia and the Middle East. They have certainly had a place in Indian culture since ancient times.

Gypie’s may have bought them to Europe from the Punjab region about one thousand years ago, as earrings were not seen as appropriate for proper women in Europe until after the Renaissance period.

The popularity of earrings increased in Europe during the 17thcentury when they were seen as fashionable and a sign of wealth.

It is said that in the days of sailing ships sailors wore an earring as a sign they had survived a ship-wreck. They certainly wore gold earrings as a way to pay for their own burial costs.

Earrings were seen as the consolation for pain and suffering. It was believed that the more decorative and expensive the earrings, the greater the consolation.

At some time in the distant past, perhaps male gypsies or perhaps sailors began to wear an earring in either ear to show their sexual preference to those who knew the code.

An earring in the left ear of a man indicated he was straight (exclusively heterosexual). The right ear indicated he was gay (exclusively homosexual), while both ears indicated he swung both ways (bisexual). This earring code hit it’s peak in popular western culture in the 1970’s and 80’s. Today that custom has more or less gone. I recently asked a gay friend aged in his mid 20’s why he had a new piecing in his left ear lobe. His answer “That’s where they put it.”

Body piecing can be done in any place where the skin can be punctured with a hole and fitted with a metal post, rod, hoop, or other piece of jewellery. Most piercings are created with an electric-powered “gun” which quickly punctures the skin while a piece of metal is simultaneously inserted into the hole.




Body piercing is the penetration of metal and jewellery into the skin, most commonly the eyebrows, ears, lips, tongue, nose, navel, nipples, and genitals. Welcome Life Beyond Compulsive Body Piercing.

Ear lobe piercings are the most popular piercings across age groups and cultures, perhaps because;

  • they are the most socially acceptable
  • they are the simplest to perform
  • they are the least expensive
  • after care is easier

“Look behind a compulsion, at it’s motivation,

before it masquerades as free will” – Peter Zapfella

Piercings have been used in various cultures as;

  • symbols of status
  • a mark rites of passage into adulthood
  • as a sign of membership of a group, and
  • as a form of adornment for at least 5000 years.

Most who adorn their body with piecing’s say they do it to either;

  • enhance their appearance.
  • express their independence
  • stand-out from the crowd
  • shock people
  • call attention to themselves
  • fit in with a group of peers
  • so their friends will accept them

Collectively these excuses suggest a compensatory behaviour for low self-worth.

Of course people get body piecing’s for many other reasons including:

  • artistic expression
  • rebellion from authority
  • a visual display of a personal narrative
  • reminders of cultural traditions
  • sexual motivation
  • identification with a group
  • drunken or drugged impulsiveness
  • and some people hide behind their body piecing’s under their clothes, which suggests shame and guilt.

Dopamine is the endorphin most often quoted by chemists as the major driver of addiction. Dopamine is also secreted into the neuron synapse as a result of pain. So it follows that people can become compulsive about feeling pain too, particularly if it then results in an improved self-esteem among their peer group.

Therefore compulsive piercings have their foundation in the same mental and body chemistry processes as drug addiction. Welcome Life Beyond Compulsive Body Piercing

Those people who have body piercings are more likely to have engaged gateway drug use, hard drug use, sexual activity, risk-taking and suicide.

Gateway drug use has been associated with those of a younger age who have body piercings. Hard drug use has been associated with those who have a number of body piercings (Carroll 2002).

There are links between body piecing’s and tattoo’s and psychiatric disorders such as depression, eating disorders (Carroll, 2002), borderline personality disorder, neuroticism  and increased risk of suicide (Carroll, 2002). Seven or more piercings, or intimate piercings, described higher risk behaviours and emotional distress.


Infection is the greatest physical risk of piercings. Surveys have shown around 31 per cent of piecing’s result in complications. Source; Body Piecing in England, Statistic Brain, Northwesters University. March 2015

If piercings are not performed by adhering to strict hygienic procedures, serious infections can occur, including HIV, Hepatitis, and Tetanus. Even if the piercing is performed hygienically, infection’s still can occur.  I speak from personal experience.

After a piecing is abandoned it often leaves a permanent scar or hole.

Tongue and lip piecing’s can cause dental problems, such as chipped teeth and gum problems.

So what does this all mean? Body piecing is fashionable up to a tipping point. Then it can become indicative of deeper emotional and psychological problems as it becomes compulsive.

Rather than getting more piecing as a temporary ‘high’, which will dissipate in time anyway and then leaving an ugly reminder, maybe those people should seek professional assistance to overcome the cause of their compulsion?

The synonyms for the word compulsive include; enthusiastic, passionate, irresistible, compelling, urgent and overwhelming.

The synonyms for the word excessive include; disproportionate, exaggerated, excoriate, extravagant, extreme, inordinate, needless, redundant, superfluous, unconscionable, unreasonable, boundless, dissipated, dizzying, immoderate, indulgent, intemperate, limitless, more, overboard, overkill, plethoric, prodigal, profligate, self-indulgent, sky-high, stratospheric, superstar, too many, unbounded, unmeasurable and way out.

Abreactions are strong, often disturbing emotional and even physical reactions to something re-experienced from the past, as if real. An abreaction could re-traumatize rather than achieve the desired healing, particularly if there is no experienced therapist present to ‘rescue’ the patient (when listening to an MP3 at home for example). Our Welcome subliminal messages are abreaction free, you can rest assured you are safe.

The Welcome Life Beyond Compulsive Body MP3 was written and recorded by Peter Zapfella to ‘lock-in’ the unconscious shifts following one-on-one therapy to deal with the underlying psychological causes of the problem. He is available almost 24/7 world-wide via Skype. For more information go to and

Now you can listen to the Welcome Life Beyond Compulsive Body Piercing subliminals when ready to sleep and let these gentle and encouraging words guide your unconscious mind into the realms of dreams.

If you listen to the Welcome Life Beyond Compulsive Body Piercing MP3 while sleeping, on ‘repeat’ or ‘loop’ your unconscious mind will hear this message around 355 times in the course of a normal 8 hour sleep. The more these messages are repeated over and over, the more they are uncritically accepted by the unconscious. A simple message regularly repeated, will eventually become a new unconscious belief. However, following one-on-one therapy with Peter Zapfella the results can be miraculous.

The Welcome Life Beyond Compulsive Body Piercing subliminal affirmations are simply ‘concealed’ from the conscious mind within masking music and environmental sounds to foil conscious analytical thinking, which could otherwise ‘filter out’ messages.

“Today is the future you created yesterday, and tomorrow you create in your thoughts today. So be inspired by what your unconscious mind thinks … today.”  – Peter Zapfella

‘Welcome’ Subliminal Affirmations Listening Guide

“You know excessive body piecing is a sign of low self-esteem and inability to cope with life’s emotional challenges. Body piercing is a gamble because of infection and various other health complications. This is detestable to you, so you no longer risk it.

You can cope with life challenges far better now. You have a healthy, well-adjusted self-esteem. You approve and love yourself. Body mutilation is now ghastly and abhorrent to you. As a result your skin is growing more strong and beautiful.

You are now more clear in the mind, more relaxed in the body. You accept everything and everybody because you are more confident. You have greater self-control. The way that you feel is becoming better and better because the burdens have been lifted for ever and ever now that you welcome life beyond excessive and compulsive body piecing.”
