A Gamorrean with facial piercings.

A piercing was jewelry or another item worn pierced through the skin on the body part. Body parts that could be pierced included ears,[1] navels,[2] lekku, tendrils, gills, or trunks. Piercings could be made of a variety of materials including metal, bone, or wood. Some had cultural significance.[source?]

Non-sentient creatures were sometimes given piercings in order to attach a chain for behavioral control or to stop them from digging out the roots of cultivated plants.[source?]

Darth Maul had a cartilage piercing in his left ear.[1] The Hassk Snarl had piercings in his ears and on his nose ridge, and the Weequay Drell had two piercings in his right eyebrow.[3]
