Piercings and waist beads have become a fashion trend in Nigeria of late. Most women and some men have been seen with piercings on different parts of their body, some made piercings on their ears which is often seen as normal by most people but even those are seen as evil by some religion practitioners. In more recent times, piercings have been seen on the nose either the left hand side or the right, some are being made within the nose which has been described as very painful by some women as well as men. Some pears their cheeks, navel or the upper part of their ears. This trend is growing as well as the use of waistbands
The waist bead could come in different shapes and designs, their major factor is that it is worn around the waist. For some it is seen as sexy as for some others, they see it as evil, some belief it is witchcraft used by women to die down the soul of a man they are in a relationship with or as a type of “kayan mata” product which is used to tie down men in order to gain money or other finances related endeavors.
