说这个词，是聊天时，说到戴鼻环，我说：“does it need to drill a hole？” 对方说，“No, but she wants the piercing（不需要，但她想钻个孔）.” 我感觉自己估计用词错了，身体上打戴饰品的孔应为“pierce”，这个“孔”应为“piercing”。
piercing noun (also body piercing)
n [C or U] a hole made in the body for wearing jewellery, or the process of making such a hole

• [I + adverb or preposition T] to go into or through something, making a hole in it using a sharp point
