Nose ring!

5 posts in this topic

I won't bore you with the details. She wants one now. Today. This afternoon. That won't happen.

But: I want to know your experiences with the healing. How long? She has allergies now, sniffing alot! Is that problem?
She was going to wait until next fall, right before starting college, now she wants it for prom. 
Which means the whole summer at camp as a counselor, dealing with the nose ring.

Is this a nothing deal? Like getting your ears pierced?

@water, There are many complications that could possibly arise from getting a nose piercing......It is not like a simple ear lobe piercing.........I read up on this because my daughter wanted one, too, when she was 16.

I told her I would not give permission, but it was her choice to do it at 18 if she still wanted it, and she would have to pay for it......I printed out all the information for her that I could find on it, and in the end, she chose not to get one.

I don't judge people with nose piercings, it's a personal choice......but it involves a serious commitment to care for the piercing properly until it is completely healed, which in some types of nose piercings, can take months.

I don't know what type of nose piercing your daughter wants, but here's an article you could let her read that might change her mind:   http://tattoos.lovetoknow.com/Dangers_of_Piercing_Your_Nose

There are many other articles on it that you can find using Google.....My personal opinion is, that I would not give my permission or pay for a child under 18 to get one....

I wish you luck in dealing with this situation......Teenagers can be very demanding....I know because I had two to deal with in the past.

Yep. Just keep it clean.

And be aware of "playing with it" too much. That interferes with the "keep it clean" as above. :)
