VeggieFrank i like the look, personally. i don't know what kind of strain it might put on your family relationship though. i think that if i had to choose between the two, i'd go with the family.

its one thing to make people working in food prep' environments cover their peircings for hygeine, but i didn't ever see any middle aged ladies sporting blue plasters over their diamond stud encrusted earlobes while working at the deli counter. also, at a cash register, a wodging big chunk of blue plaster on someones eyebrow is way more obvious than a pair of small steel dots would be to the average member of the public.



it worked, slowly but surely the blue plasters disapeared from veiw at the tills! yey me and my small victory against blue plasters!



thats awesome!!!

fadeaway1289 I think piercings are cool and look good. I had an eyebrow piercing and had to keep it covered with a band aid at work. It got annoying because little kids would always ask what happened to my eye. (Occasionally I would tell them I was running with scissors and tripped). Then I got a new boss who made me take it out. I ended up keeping it out and letting it close up because it became too much of a pain.

Something tells me the places most people pierce aren't good places for insulin to go, though.



Not to mention most piercings and through and through, so the insulin would just shoot out the other side of the earlobe, nostril, eyebrow, navel, etc.

Dirty Martini Don't most states require anyone under 18 to have the signature/release of a parent/guardian before getting pierced?



Honestly I wouldn't bother getting it done if you just have to cover it up. I'd wait.

I agree. Maybe they'll listen to two of us! :

Huh? So-called 'self-mutilation' has been around for thousands of years and seems to have existed in every continent. Tribal groups performed piercing, scarring, tattooing, and burning as a form of [religious, familial] celebration and as a rite-of-passage. Beauty is probably the last reason why this was done. And even today, most people who choose to mark their bodies do so for deeper reasons than simple, shallow 'beauty'. I have no clue why you seem to think that this is something the "youngins" started like last year, but it just makes you appear a bit daft and pompous.

zoebird i'm 31. i have a septum and nostril piercing. i had both professionally done. i like the way it looks.
09-28-2007 11:07 AM
synergy I have my nostril pieced and I love it. I waited until I was about 19 though. My mom said the only thing I couldn't do before I graduated was pierce my face. So I didn't.



15 is not necessarily too young. It depends on the individual (and, since they are a minor, their parent).



Do it if it will make you happy and not get you into trouble with school/parents, etc.

Or, if you are hesitating, wait. You can always do it later, too

Hang~Ten~Honey I have two piercings in my nose... a stud and a hoop ...on the left nostril.



Is your mom/dad going with you to get it done? Most places require parental presence for minors. I got my navel pierced when I was 16 with my bff and her bf's mom pretended to be our moms. lol My mom was way too grossed out about piercings to want to be in attendance. She still doesn't like to look at my or my brother's piercings.



I recommend using a product called Satin. It's a skin cleanser and it's awesome for piercings. Sea salt soaks are wonderful as well. But definitely follow the instructions your piercer gives you and make sure you don't over-clean. I've had mine for years but I still use Satin in the shower every month or so just to clean them all out.

Peacefully_Anna When I had mine I treated it with utmost care I take getting a piercing as a very serious but still fun things-and I treat my body with care (I have only ever had one peircing (my nose)



I will only go to a proffesional clean place where I know the people well



I plan on wearing a little piece of skin colored bandaid over it until I can put a clear stud in...I talked to some peircers I know and they said that that would be ok to do



And as for being to young...well I think if parents pierce their babies ears a little nose stud isn't so bad

But that's for you to decide yourself. Personally I think 14 is not too young- It just depends on if you are a responsible person or not- If you take care of your body

Pirate Ferret ^ awww meanie i have my nose, tongue + navel( 3 times) done! Eyebrow and septum are the two id NEVER have so ha ha ha =p along with monroe, ew.

I had my 18th piercing done on saturday woo.



anywaayyy

how are you gonna keep it covered up? i imagine changing jewellery/removing it soon after piercing (or actually, frequently no matter how healed) is just asking for problems!

VERY IMPORTANT!!



Aren't you a little young to get piercings ((Unless your mom or someone is going with you?? I dunno, doesn't matter)) ?? Eh no biggie.



Personally, a nose stud is one of the 3 Piercings I Will Never Get (the other two being belly button and tounge....no thanks sexual innuendo), but they do look nice on some people.



I'm going to get my septum done, probably around the time of my birthday (November)...once my eyebrow ring falls out (for the FOURTH time!) .
09-28-2007 06:36 AM
jeneticallymodified i don't have a problem with them- i used to have mine done. i think they can be very pretty, quite discrete, leave a relatively small mark when removed, and are more socially acceptable than a great big tongue stud or eyebrow ring. when its healed, you could always wear a clear retainer for school, too.

i'm not in any way implying you're uneducated about peircings, or foolish, but i think we often take risks without thinking about it- i'd had other peircings from licenced proffesionals and knew what i should/shouldn't do, and still had my nose peircing done by a guy who advertised in the local paper, who turned up with a briefcase full of stuff, and did it in my living room. looking back, this obviously was a stupid idea, cos i didn't sign a consent form or have any legal proof i'd had it done, its too low and at a wonky angle, he sprayed numbing solution right down one side of my face in an attempt to numb my nose (i was sat up on my couch, and well, gravity happens) so i had a numb face for a while, and i now have a split hole that doesn't look closed or discrete despite having had no jewlery in it for a good 5 years- not so discrete!

Peacefully_Anna hey guy, when I turn 15 I am thinking about getting my nose pierced again. I had a pretty little diamond stud when I was in junior high but they made me take it out they would not even let me cover it up!

But I think high school will be better- plus I will always keep it covered up



So I will probably get one anyway but I am just curious whatcha you all think about nose studs? Thanks! : ))
