.....after wanting to for ages I finally got my nose pierced and I love it! (and yes it hurt). I got a little .25ct diamond and white gold stud. Only had it done yesterday so still red and won't be healed properly for another 4 weeks so need to be really careful as if it comes out accidentally ie towels, clothing, you've only got about five minutes to get it back in as the cartilage on your nose loves to close up very quickly.
My daughter loves it but my son hates it and, apparently hates me now because "my friends will see it and think you're weird". He's still sulking but I'm sure he'll get over it eventually.
