Should I do it?

That is what I have been asking myself for quite awhile now.

Should I do it or shouldn't I do it?

This is what I am contemplating doing and have been for the past few years. Look closely.

No, I don't want to try out for American Idol or be a singer like Kelly Clarkson.

But, I do want a tiny nose stud like hers. My soon-to-be sister-in-law has one and it's very attractive. I've seen other women with them and they catch my eye.

I think they are very sexy and feminine. But I have many questions that I need to figure out the answers to before I make this decision. Such as:
  • Is my nose too big (nostril opening) to where it would look awkward?
  • How much pain should I expect? (I have a pretty good pain tolerance so I'm not too concerned, but would like to know what it's like)
  • What chances are there for infection?
  • Will I still be able to blow/pick my nose normally? (important things here!)
  • Does it get in the way much?
  • Does it matter which side to have it on? (remember back in the 80's if you had your right ear pierced and you were a guy it symbolized you were gay or something like that) I don't want to give any mixed signals or anything.
  • What if I do it and decide down the road I no longer want it, how will the scar look? (not that I am concerned with scars since my body is full of them, what's one more to add to the collection?)
  • Will I embarrass my 1o year old son if I get one? (not that I really care, but just curious, guess I'll have to ask him myself)
  • Or better yet, will my 10 year old son want to get a piercing of his own?!?!? AGH! I'm SO not ready for that yet.
  • Am I too old for this?
I told my husband what I have been contemplating and was expecting him to completely roll his eyes with disapproval. Instead he says, "Let's go tomorrow."

Huh! Seriously?

That's crazy. But I suppose it's good that he would approve if I were to go through with it.

So, do any of you have any suggestions for me? I would love your comments to this pressing issue of mine.


  1. Oh, you would look SO cute. All of your questions are valid, but the answer to all of them: YOU will be fine. I have a bunch of friends that have this, and love it (and some that have taken it out w/ no scar). Have fun, I can't wait to see pics!

  2. I think you could totally pull this off! I love the tiny little ones and if my hubby would let me (he's a little conservative on this end) I would totally have one, too!


  3. Agh! We are related! I've wanted to do this for a while myself!

    I had my lip pierced for 5+ years, the pain is nothing...

  4. At first with out reading slower I thought you wanted to get a nose job.

    I was all NO
    but you can pull of the nose stud.

    so yes!


Your comments make my day - so go on, share!
