Q? What is the fiqh position on body piercing (other than the ears) for women? i.e. nose, eye brow, belly button. Do these rulings also apply to men?

A. The scholars are agreed that it is permissible for a women to have her ears pierced to wear an earring since that is considered an adornment for women. Likewise they have even permitted piercing the nose as women in some communities do.

However, it would NOT be permissible to pierce the lip, belly button etc, since that is not considered the adornment for any decent women.
[Radd al-Muhtar 5:270]

It is not permissible for men to pierce their ears or any other part of their body as that has not been considered an adornment for them by the Shari'a.

And Allah knows best.
