June 28th is international body piercing day, a holiday that commemorates the career of the "granddaddy of modern body piercing" Jim Ward. Ward was the pioneer of the fixed bead ring and internally threaded barbells—creating an industry standard within the piercing world. He was also the first person to create a storefront for piercing, Gauntlet in West Hollywood.

In honor of Ward and the world of body piercings, we're celebrating with some of our favorite modified models. Take a look at beauties sporting a variety of beautiful piercings and let us know your thoughts on this story in the comments section.
