I had thought that the only piercing that significantly alters a person’s facial expressions are big stretched lip piercings, because they alter the base shape of the mouth by pushing the lips into a different default form. A big labret can make a frown, or two off-centre labrets can make a funny smirk. But JJ proves that my thinking is too shallow, offering up the evidence that even a septum piercing can give you a new introductory expression. Unfortunately it’s not a good one, and it gives you a bit of a dry mouth.
