Well, everyone has their own opinion on what they like or don't like. So you may find nose studs disgusting whereas I love mine. I don't wear bulky things to make me look like a walking christmas tree, But its me. I wear small studs, pretty ones. I love piercings but I'm not crazy covered in them.
Nose rings can look stunning, if you have the face and attitude to pull it off. It was also an experience for me. I honestly never thought of getting one until I was offered to get one and I agreed. I didn't know if it would look good or not but now I took the chance and I love it..
the same goes with ugg boots, tattoos, short hair, red hair, and painted nails. beauty is in the eye of the beholder. just because you don't find nose studs attractive, doesn't mean that they're a turn off to everyone.
I've often mistook that piercing for a zit o.O I've never been a fan of piercings, but I wouldn't rule out a woman for having them. I just don't see what the big yank is about poking additional holes in your body and stringing decoration through them. To each their own though.
