Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)
1) It is Haraam (forbidden) for males to pierce any part of their bodies.
2) No, it is Haraam and not true. Many cultural customs consist of doubtful and unauthenticated information. Ignore such things for they are baseless and irreligious in nature.
And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
