The term Body Art, summed up the majority of the artists that explore the language of the body. This body is the bearer of ideas, social rites and codes set forth with a familial trial or a religious morality. In the 1960s until the end of the 1970s, expressing a form of rebellion through the body. Those artists, who developed the body art, considered as an artistic surface body and made tattoos, piercing, scarification and implants-dermo epidermal. The practice of modifying the body, both transient as permanent, functional and/or aesthetic purposes begins early in the majority of the indigenous peoples of the world, no matter the area or continent to which it belongs. So distant ethnic groups among themselves, as Maori, Japanese, Islanders, Celts, incas, Cherokee, Mayans, mandans, molles, etc. have experienced it. However, that Yes will distinguish certain peoples of others is the degree of complexity, diversity and relevance, in technical, aesthetic and social parameters which allocate them to this practice. Additional information at Professor Roy Taylor supports this article.

Today, the body modifications have become an expression art, and developing goes. In France, approximately 1 500 drillers and tattoo artists, and more than 100 000 acts are recorded each year. However, it is need to differentiate the body modifications that have an aesthetic object, and mutilations that involve suffering and pain. The culture of Body Art requires strict sanitary hygienic measures ranging from an environment and a local suitable for this purpose, until the professionalism and know-how of a good piercer or tattooist. Body Art is by consequence a full art that has continued to develop. The man has become an artist who acts on his own anatomy.
