Back a few years ago I decided to get my nose pierced again. I’d had it done twice before and twice before I’d decided I no longer wanted it and took it out. I told my friend Krista I was going to get this done again and she said, “Get both sides pierced. Only one side is ’80s.” She was joking around, of course, but I ended up getting both sides pierced anyway. Not long after that I had to get an MRI done and had to remove my jewellery. I couldn’t get them back in after that and for a third and likely final time, I retired my nostril piercings.
I’d had these (and many other piercings) done by Shawn at Epidart. Coincidentally, Shawn just happens to be the piercer of this lovely set of nostril piercings as well. (See how I tied that in there?) Here’s hoping “LoveHatesYou” keeps hers longer than I kept mine!
I remember back in the 80s, it actually was quite popular for awhile, to have multiple nostril piercings but I don’t see it as much anymore. Or maybe I just don’t notice. Nostril piercings seem to have become almost as acceptable in the work place as earlobe piercings. I ask you once again dear ModBlog reader, do you think nostril piercings are becoming (or simply are) as acceptable as standard earlobe piercings? Would you say that it’s more acceptable for a woman to have her nose pierced than a man when it comes to employment dress code, or would you say there’s really no difference?
