A syringe is mostly commonly used to administer injections. It consists of a plunger inside a barrel, which has a small hole on the end, and normally a luer connector to allow connection to a hypodermic needle.

Syringes are rarely used in body modification, their most common uses probably being to inject local anesthetic before painful procedures, or for silicone injection.

Large syringes are sometimes modified by removing the end to turn them into a home-made vacuum pumping device.
