DH is away.

Usually when he goes away (not very often) I end up getting a tattoo of some sort.

I quite fancy getting my nose pierced but have t had a piercing done for about 15 years!

Does anyone have one and love it?

I love mine, had it done mid-twenties, do it smile

I wonder If I need to book or if they will have availability tomorrow. He is home in the evening so tomorrow is it!

I don't have one (just had my bellybutton pierced --before the dawn of time--), but I don't like them, they are not flattering. Same goes for eyebrow piercings.

I've had mine for nearly 20 years and I still love it just as much as ever.

I got one in my mid 20's too. I love it. It suits me.

If you think it will suit you, go for it! A lot of people don't notice mine as its subtle.

I can't bloody take it out now anyway grin. It's a small red heart. Good job I love it!

Do it. I love piercing, i have my lip done.
Genitals takes it too far though lol

I used to have one. I liked it but when DS was a baby he used to keep grabbing at it so I took it out. You need to wear a stud all the time or it closes up. But if you do take it out it heals up and you can hardly see where it was.

Lots of pretty studs around. Some quite tiny and subtle

I would love to get my nose pierced but suffer bad blocked pores on my nose so dont want to bring attention to it! Saving for my next tattoo once I finish bf grin

I've recently had mine done, where is good to buy nice little studs?

I used to have mine done as a teenager and loved it, but the stud fell out at a festival and it closed up really quickly.

i really want mine done again!!!

I've had mine since I was 17 and it's still my favourite piercing (all the rest in my ears and belly button, no intimate ones!). I buy studs from Claire's Accessories, I have a tiny little one with a clear stone that - most importantly - is held in with a little claw setting so it doesn't fall out. I found that cheap ones where the stone is just glued in wouldn't last long.

I think it suits me. I don't think people notice it much though!

I had mine done as a teenager, let it close in my twenties and had it redone in my thirties! I only wear a small stud with a little stone in it which I bought from the place I got it pierced. Go for it!

I say yay. I don't think I would ever be brave enough but my mate has a nose stud and it looks great on her

Love mine. Had it done in my mid twenties and I'm now early 40s and still love it. I always wear tiny little clear diamondy studs and ebay is great for them.

YY to claw settings, glued in never last.

HoneyDragon Sun 15-Jun-14 23:00:34

Yaaaaaay, never naaah.

I love mine, it's ridiculously flattering and pretty. It's the best thing about my face grin

Bunbaker Sun 15-Jun-14 23:02:58

If you want one have it done. I personally don't find facial piercings attractive in any way, but an opinion from an anonymous poster on a forum isn't going to influence your decision.

I want mine done and I'm well over 40!

Saurus72 Sun 15-Jun-14 23:10:34

Definitely no - no matter how dainty or elegant the nose ring is, I think they are not at all becoming.

Beaverfeaver2 Sun 15-Jun-14 23:12:28

Glued in?
Please explain?

Is it like a microdermal? I didn't think you could put those on your nose.

Although I have seen some lovely micro dermal piercings.

I am a little concerned as I have had my eyebrow perched twice in the past and both times it grew out pretty quickly.

I loved mine - it really suited me.

Removed it when I started teaching on the HT's request - school were doing a big drive against students having piercings & felt it unhelpful to have a teacher flashing one.

I wore a nose stud out of work for a while but tbh, I kept forgetting I had it in once it wasn't there all the time, blowing my nose & stabbing myself in the septum. Ouch. I tried doing the bending the post thing but they still kept twisting round & jabbing me! Eventually I let it close up.

I much prefer my ear cartilage piercings, which just sit there being no trouble...

FelixFelix Sun 15-Jun-14 23:36:53

I really want my nose piercing but my body always seems to reject piercings sad I can't even have my ears pierced!

Go for it!

jaynebxl Sun 15-Jun-14 23:40:55

Love mine. Had it done in my 20s over 20 years ago. I buy studs at a market stall and always go for the bent over stud.

No glued in is the stone on the stud. They just fall off and you're left with a stud with no stone in!
