Pick what you want the most for your first piercing. A safe, accepted direction to start with is piercing ears. If you are thinking about a tattoo, a bigger tattoo requires more time and pain, so you might want to consider a small tattoo the first time around. Branding and scarification are more drastic body modifications, and certain piercings are pretty severe, if you are using a large gauge. The more extreme the piercing, the more careful you need to be about aftercare and cleanliness.
"The more extreme the piercing, the more careful you need to be about aftercare and cleanliness"....this is not true, aftercare is not dependant on how "extreme" it is...you should always practice good hygeine and aftercare no matter what piercing it is...not how "extreme" it is.....
