Whenever I see someone with their nose pierced I wonder why. It seems so unwieldy and that it would be annoying to have to deal with all the time (especially when you have a cold or flu, or when you sneeze).
I am curious to hear the various reasons behind such a choice, whether that reason might be religious, "in the world's face", "everyone else is doing it, so...", or something else entirely.
People do it simply because everyone else is doing it, and they want to look and feel trendy. It's not as though it's even remotely attractive. Whenever I notice someone with a pierced probiscus, I at first think something is wrong with it (perhaps a stray bit of food, or an errant booger). And then when I finally realize what the problem is, I can't for the life of me understand why they have intentionally poked a hole in their sniffer and plugged it with a foreign object. It most reminds me of the annual migration of lemmings to the sea.
I got my nose done because I've always liked the idea. I like the idea of piercings, tattoo's ect and that's my image. I like it, I don't regret it, I did it simply because of the vanity factor which is shallow but I reckon that's why most people do it.
I've always liked how it looked and I like piercings (nothing too crazy, though), so I got one when I turned 18. I don't have a problem with piercing needles and I was old enough, so nothing was stopping me from getting it. I like the way it looks on my face and sure, I may take it out someday, but for now it's a part of me and it's cute :)
