* ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'':
** In ''[[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMansChest Dead Man's Chest]]'' Jack is caught by a [[ImAHumanitarian cannibal]] tribe wearing these and chased down a beach.
** Blackbeard's zombies in ''[[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanOnStrangerTides On Stranger Tides]]''.
* ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' had a tribe of Na'vi with bones through their nose.
* Subverted in ''Film/{{Apocalypto}}'', where it seems that all local tribes have piercings. The hero's tribe have simple piercings, while the more technologically advanced and urbanized Mayans have extremely intricate and ornate piercings, which are meant to show the decadence of their conspicuous consumption.

* Among the many self-mutilations common to the savage Reavers in ''Film/{{Serenity}}'' are bits of metal, bone, etc. inserted into the skin. The same is true of ''{{Series/Firefly}}'', the television series on which the movie is based, but you get a much better look in the movie.

* Spoofed in ''WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}}: Escape 2 Africa''. When the other giraffes make Melman their WitchDoctor, they present him with the requisite nose bone. "Don't worry, it's a clip-on."

* In ''PastwatchTheRedemptionOfChristopherColumbus'', [[spoiler:Hunahpu]] travels to the 15th century and tries to convince some Zapotec villagers that he's a God in order to unite all of Mesoamerica under one benevolent rule. In order to do that, he must prove that he's a man by piercing the skin of his penis with metal needles and appear to the villagers with his junk exposed. Being a civilized man, he uses what little medicine he brought with him to sterilize the wounds and stop the bleeding, also taking a painkiller prior to the mutilation. When the villagers meet him, he wants each of them to pull a certain needle out and wipe the blood on their own body (as a blessing). He also demands that an ugly slave girl from a neighboring tribe be set free and also pull a needle from his penis. She does so and immediately pierces her tongue with the needle. This shocks the villagers and [[spoiler:Hunahpu]], but not because of the savageness of the act. This is the act of a wife, not a random slave girl. [[spoiler:Hunahpu]] pulls the needle out but ends up marrying her anyway.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Terramex}}'', the player's inventory items are carried around by black tribesmen with bones through their noses. Let's just say that this game hasn't aged very well.
