About This Quiz

Piercings are how some of us express ourselves, whether it be with an anti-tragus piercing, a horizontal brow piercing or something a little naughtier like a mid-line tongue piercing. Adding metal to the surface of the human body has been done for centuries, if not longer, and people are only getting more adventurous with the placements today. But enough about history: What we really want to do is guess how many you have. Do you think we could figure that out with a few questions?

Makeup, just like piercings, is a form of self-expression, so we're going to fuse the two today in this quiz. For this quiz, we're going to need you to fill up a makeup bag with your favorite kinds of products; we're talking mascara, eyeshadows, lipsticks, eyeliners, lashes, foundations and concealers—basically, the works. Pick all of your favorites so that we can try to guess what number of piercings you currently have.  

So, if you think we've got what it takes to guess your piercing count based on your makeup faves, go ahead and get started on this quiz! Come on, aren't you curious to find out how well we do in guessing the number of your piercings?
