Nose Piercing

I have been toying with the idea of getting a nose piercing for some time now. In fact, I'd rather do that than go Goodwilling. But, being the cautious one that I am, I am really weighing this before I just go and shove a poker through my nose.

Do you have one? Know anyone close to you that has one? Remember I am a pastors wife and I don't know how the church will react. This is a backwoodsy, down-home sort of place and I can just imagine the reactions.

What do you think?

Hmmm... that's kind of a tough one. What does Andrew think? And do you think the little ones will pull at it? You'll have to keep it away from those little curious hands while it heals! :) I don't have any experience with anything pierced except for my ears, so I'm no help there. I'm still toying with the idea of a belly button piercing...

I'd pass, but that's just my personal preference. I don't necessarily think there's anything wrong with it. I've toyed with the belly button idea, as well as a small tattoo, but never gotten beyond the "hmm, that would be interesting" stage

I thought I'd get lots of looks and whatnot from mine...but actually, very few people noticed.
Healing is great. I had little to no soreness. My mom's piercing must have hit a nerve, 'cause her healing was a bit more painful than mine.
I say if Andrew approves, than go for it! If you start with a small stud, or a crystal (sort of a medium color) it's likely that no one will notice right away.
If you'd like, I can send you some pictures of mine

Do it!!!!!! I've never once regretted getting my nose pierced - both Brad and I LOOOOOOVE it! :D I'd say if Andrew likes the idea, then it doesn't much matter what other people think.

Mine was $30. It hurt for a second, then I got a headache. I was fine the next day. Honestly, very few people noticed. The only people who noticed were people who either had theirs pierced or wanted to get it done. My mom hated the idea, but she hardly noticed it afterwards. Then she started noticing friends who had them. She never realized before they had their nose pierced :) Healing was fine, but if Anna Kate bumped it (which was often), I often got a bump under it. It healed fine with salt water soaks.

I tried to change mine and never got the ring back in :( By the next day, you couldn't even see the hole any more. I'm going to get it redone soon. I loved it!

BTW, I had to lie about breastfeeding. All the places here refuse to pierce you if you're nursing or pregnant.
