Did Prince have any piercings and tattoos?

The ear bling he wore for instance, was it through a piercing or just a clip on?

Also did he have any tattoos?

Didn't he have the symbol tattoo on the side of his head? (Only visible when shaved very short).

You mean the one where you can see it on the Emancipation album inlay? I don't think that's a tat. I think it was just drawn on in eyeliner like the 'slave' on his face.

As for piercings, he had one of his ears pierced. Check out the Lovesexy days/Purple Rain where he gives Apollonia his earing.

Edit: Had to change 'has' to 'had' cry

Mayte mentioned in one of the vids he didn't have any tattoos.

I am pretty sure for a time he had pierced ears but that as it...

No. That was written with the same thing he wrote "Slave" on his cheek with. Sometimes it was there, other times it was not. No tattoos is his Clouds lyrics are to believed. He had an ear piercing from at least Purple Rain and in some pics you can still see the indention. It was in his right ear. I don't know of any other piercings, though. I get the impression that he liked to stay away from that stuff, especially in more recent times. The Old Testament frowns MIGHTILY on tattoos.

He and Mayte once had some henna tattos on their hands. They're not permanent. It was a trend back then, a lot of celebrities had it back then, like Madonna for example.

OK that makes more sense.

I think I must have read the same thing this person did:
