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Embarassed,身体上打戴饰品的孔应为“pierce”,这个“孔”应为“piercing”。

查了一下剑桥在线英语字典:

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

He has several tattoos and multiple piercings.

pierce  verb  

• [I + adverb or preposition T] to go into or through something, making a hole in it using a sharp point
The needle pierces the fabric four times a second.
I couldn't wear these earrings because my ears aren't pierced.

• [T] (of a light, sound, etc.) to suddenly be seen or heard, despite darkness, noise, etc
