Piercing - The Hole Story

Television (Excerpts) – 2002

M
Mature

This documentary examines the world of body piercing, from the everyday to the extreme. In these excerpts body piercer and suspensionist David van der Camp suggests that people pierce their bodies for three reasons: aesthetics, their ego, or to enhance their sexuality. Varying views about piercing are expressed, from fans to those who find it intimidating. Dave explains his love for the art, before bungy jumping with metal hooks piercing the skin on his back. Piercing - The Hole Story screened on TV3's Inside New Zealand documentary slot. Warning: some scenes may not be suitable for the squeamish. 

It's more people that don’t understand about piercings, and they look and they think 'Oh my god you know, watch out for her, she’s one of those persons that’s going to steal from me or do something to me. They’re gonna hurt me in some way.'
– A pierced woman discusses the stigma around piercings
