Peircing... Biblical Study on the topic

Where in the bible do we find any information on 

Is there any references?

Leviticus 19:28 Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.

Leviticus 21:5 They shall not make baldness upon their head, neither shall they shave off the corner of their beard, nor make any cuttings in their flesh.
In these verses, the Lord prohibits the Israelites from making cuttings in their flesh as an act of mourning for the dead. Neither were they to print marks upon themselves. The Jews understood this last commandment to refer to tattoos. Tattooing was "a custom of the heathen, who used so to mark himself for idolatry, as much as to say that the tattooed person was a slave sold to the idol and marked for its service" (Mishneh Torah, Mada, Hilchoth Abodath Kochabim XII, 11). Although piercing the body for the sake of decoration is not being referred to here, piercing is in the same category as making marks on the body and cutting the flesh.

So it is evident that GOD isn't a fan of cuttings..
Now I ADMIT.. 
Most people's  motivation is 
Not about worshiping some god..

But what if that's exactly what we are doing?

What if unaware of it.. We are practicing ancient worship rituals to a deity who honestly lost the honor, respect and following of "followers" Century's ago??

I mean you see all these people with tattoos and peircings.. and odd tribal art and signage all over them..


People who will often tell you they don't know what this means or that means..
But they felt like inscribing it on their bodies..

I don't know.. But I kind of wonder how everyone is doing this to be an individual.. but THEY ARE ALL DOING IT!
