You don't see it, it hurts like hell, it chips your teeth, it has the highest chance of infection because of contact with food.
Why do they do it?
or if you have one, why did you do it?

I have one. Why did I get it? Honestly, I was waiting for a friend who was meeting me for lunch, and he said he was running a little late, so I figured I'd amuse myself by getting it done.
I don't have a sexually active lifestyle, so THAT reasoning is BS. No one sees it, so it's just something for me. I'm academic, so I can't do anything too outlandish because I have to maintain some professionalism - so I keep my tattoos and piercings in places that are hidden from general sight.
I love it. I love the freedom to be able to do what I want with my body. And ironically, it healed faster than any other piercing or tattoo I've ever had.1
