to ask what you think about nose piercing?

Just wondering, really. I've always considered getting one done (nostril, not a septum piercing) and thought it would suit my face. But it's never seemed like the right time, and now I'm in my mid 30's.

I've been split from my ex for a few months, kind of need a pick-me-up and have come back to the idea. Would it be a really naff thing to do? Also, (stupid questions, maybe) when it heals is it uncomfortable?

I had mine done when I was 19 and wore it for years, through office jobs, client visits and all sorts. I only stopped because baby DD pulled out the stud, I couldn't find where it had gone and before I could get a replacement (was in the middle of a house move, it took a few days to get to a shop) the hole closed up. sad I'm going to get it re-pierced once I've finished having grabby babies!

I have a tiny nose stud and don't look like me if I'm not wearing it. I had my nose pierced at 26 and have never regretted it. I like it and couldn't give a stuff what anyone else thinks.

pinkstinks that's how my sister did hers.

I'm mid 30s and have mine done. Gave it to myself for a 21st. I love it.
Do it

I brought a load of beautiful gold studs from India back with me

nouvelle you should try putting the blunt end of a needle through where the hole was, its a little bit eye-watering but not so bad as getting re-pierced grin, then put in the thinnest stud you can get.

you might find the hole is still there. I hadn't worn a nose stud for over 10 years and this is how I re-opened mine.

I really don't like them at all, but it's entirely up to you, it's your nose

It did look rather fetching when it was sticking out the side!

Im 47 and still wear a ring in my nose. I have no intentions of ever taking it out. I loves it. I was in my 30s when I had it done. Ihad wanted it done since I was a teenager but for various reason didnt. I then moved to the USA in 1987 and then having more than 1 hole in your ear was considered OTT. I married a very controlling conservative man and stayed married for 12 years. I had it done not long before I threw him out 1. because Id always wanted it done and 2. cos I knew it would PISS him off grin. Win Win situation actually grin

Looks nice when it's a small one, not a ring. Though my sister (in her mid 30s) have one, and I can always see it inside her nose, she's a bit taller than me... And so it looks a bit like she's got a permanent boogey up there :P But a friend of mine got one, and you can't see the other end so its fine!
