According to Teen Vogue, piercing is the new popping. The latest body horror genre people are seeking out for their cathartic kicks is piercing videos—all the fun of poking at the skin, but with none of the goo.

If pimple popping videos are cookies—satisfying in a gooey, melt-y way—than piercing videos are potato chips: a gratifying crunch.

(DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME, KIDS! These videos are done by professionals.)

Highlights include:

All sorts of ear piercings (damn!)
