The Australian practice, called subincision in western societies, can be pretty hardcore, sometimes extending up the penis shaft to create a slit.
I once made a 12mm thick stainless steel ring (approx. 60mm internal diameter)for a guy who had a hole through the base of his penis that emerged from behind his scrotum. Apparently this modernised version was based on an old pygmy contraceptive method/rite of passage. He wore it at parties.
