i heard that the ancient mayans put small holes in their skulls

Resolved Question:

i heard that the ancient mayans put small holes in their skulls but no one truly knows why, some think it made them smarter or increased psychic abilities . I think that this could become the new in thing to do with the whole extreme piercing and tattooed freak crowd. what kind of license would a person need to bout a moderate sized hole in someones skull but only through the skull . what in your expert opinion would be the best and quickest method?

Hello,

Welcome to just answer,

You need to be surgeon or a neurosurgeon to make hole in someone skull.

This is allowed only if there is some intracrainal diseases.

It is dangerous if done without cause and will not help in any ways.

No scientific evidence is available to support this.

Thanks
