Question:

I just wanted to know if body piercings are allowed?

Answer

بسم الله الرحمن الرحي

Ear piercings are allowed due to them being allowed during the time of the Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him), nose piercings are allowed due to the ‘urf (custom of a particular environment). (Summarised from Raddul Muhtar)

Everything besides that one should avoid according to contemporary scholars due to it resembling mutilation of the body and resembling immoral people.
