Ear and nose piercing have been particularly widespread and are well represented in historical records and among grave goods. The oldest mummy remains ever discovered were sporting earrings, confirming to the existence of the practice more than 5,000 years ago. Nose piercing is documented as far back as 1500 BC. Piercings of these types have been documented globally, while lip and tongue piercings were historically found in African and American tribal cultures. The history of 'belly-button' (A.K.A- navel) piercing is less clear. The practice of body piercing has increased and decreased in Western culture, but it has experienced an increase of popularity since World War II, with sites other than the ears gaining subcultural popularity in the 1970s and spreading to mainstream in the 1990s.
