Today, 2 weeks ago, I got my right Nostril pierced.
I was thinking about it for over 14 years now, but could never bring myself to do it. Not because of the pain there would be, there was no real pain in the first.
First I was at Middle School and afraid I could be labeled by my Teachers.
Then came High School and I thought the same might happen, then College and so forth, and every time the same reasoning popped up in my head not to opt for a piercing in my face.
Also, I was most scared about finding and maintaining a job with jewellery like that.
You know, your boss is one of those ex-skanks who would do every guy since age 13 and have their tramp stamp since age 16, though it was illegal to get it at that age in the first, but God forbid if you have a tiny silver dot on the outside of your bloody Nostril.
Well, at least my first Boss was like that, she was such a Bigot!
The second was a tiny bit better, but nothing like that was acceptable for her either.
So, no piercing for you, Nokta!
Though I have 6 piercings in my earlobes (I would have been able to hide them with my long hair hanging over my ears if the need would ever arise) that was never a problem with anyone.
And Tattoos, only where no one can see them... but I am not going to digress too much, I promise.
After seeing for a few years now that young chicks, working as kindergarten teachers & doctor's assistants, have cheek piercings or even labret piercings... I thought to myself that since I was a Freelancer, I could have mine, too.
I mean, come on, what looks worse in your eyes, a piercing in the nostril or in the cheek!?
Also for years my family(with one of my brother's now ex-GF being the biggest pain in the A*se) tried to keep my away from getting mine.
Though, to be honest, finding a good piercer was my real problem. I wanted someone who was good at what they do, around my age & female.
And now after searching almost 3 years I got the piercing, it looks gorgeous and I can barely wait for it to perfectly heal up, so that I can buy some great jewellery.
By the way, I am still waiting for the pain... and everyone kept telling me beforehand, including the piercer herself, that sneezing and blowing your nose would hurt like a bitch, which it both did not...
Either I am very tough or everyone else is a wuss!
