Body Piercing, Tattooing, Self-Esteem, and Body Investment in Adolescent Girls.
Carroll, Lynne; Anderson, Roxanne
Adolescence, v37 n147 p627-37 Fall 2002
Postmodern perspectives of body piercing and tattooing interpret these as signifiers of the self and attempts to maintain control over the body in an age of increasing alienation. Results of this survey of adolescent females reveal that body piercings and tattoos were significantly correlated with trait anger (Angry Reaction subscale scores).
