Maybe it’s silly at 31 years old, but I’m contemplating getting my nose pierced. I’ve always wanted to do it, actually, but I guess I’m finally getting brave enough? (Or now I’m married and there won’t be a nose ring in the pictures, which would have made my mother really upset lol)
Anyway, is it crazy? Am I too old? Anyone get one at this kind of age?

I had it done at 35 and LOVED it! The only problem was that my work didn’t approve so I spent so much time trying to cover it with makeup or small bandaids that it stayed infected so I just took it out. 🙁
I miss it.

I got my nose pierced when I was in my late teens kept it for couple years of college. It was awesome and I thought totally cute. I forget why I took it out but if you want to do it, I say go for it! You can always take it out. I can’t even tell where the piercing was.

I have had my nose pierced since I was 16, I think depending on where you live and what you do your work can be ok with it. I’m an architect so I can get by with it in.

Honestly, I have a hard time taking an adult with a nose ring seriously. College girls with nose rings- ok, but not adults. Sorry:/
ETA: That’s just my opinion and I don’t think you should base your decision off of what other people will think.

I think they’re really cute and sassy from ages 16 to 23 or 24! But like bellybutton rings, I think they come with an expiration date…

Meh, I’m 27 and have had mine since I was 19. If people don’t like it they can kiss my butt. I don’t wear an actual ring or anything, just a tiny little stud that I take out everytime I do my makeup and wash my face. I work for an office and the higher ups don’t care in the least bit so it’s worn there too. I deal with people who come into my work on a normal basis and haven’t had anyone complain about it or stare at it like I was some sort of freak for having it.

If your job allows it I say go for it! I miss my nose ring…
Something to note is that although piercings seem to be temporary because you can take them out.. many leave a permanent hole or scar. I’m testament to this. I have a permanent hole in my nose from my nose ring (wore it from 18-24) and also a permanent scar under my lip from my labret piercing.

My opinion is that they look really cute on some people, but to me, they’re kinda nasty. I am an Esthetician/MUA and if people have to take them out, a lot of times there’s dried “matter” all over them. Plus, the hole will always be there and it looks like an enlarged pore.

I got mine done at 30, but only kept it for a year as it grew over quickly.
I think if you keep it subtle (small stud, diamond etc) it can actually look quite beautiful.

I like them! I dont think there should be set age ranges for any type of body modification. Do what makes you happy.

I’ve had my nose pierced since I was 16 ( I’m 29 ). It’s just a tiny little “diamond” stud. When you first get it pierced they need to use a big stud (much like when you first get your ears peirced), but I hated how giant the big stud was, so I almost immediately took thst one out and replaced it with this small one. Because I did that, the hole in my nose closed up to the size of the small post (instead of the size of the larger stuf post) so now the stud thst I’m wearing is basically stuck in my nose. I litterally can’t get it out. I guess I’d have to cut it if I really wanted it out.
Anyways, my point was…I like nose rings, especially if they are small and dainty. I think it’s an ageless thing (not like belly button rings).

I’m 29 and have had my nose pierced since I was 19, I love it and really don’t forsee myself taking it out?? It is just a tiny little white gold diamond, honestly I forget its even there.
My 28 year old sister just got hers done also.
If you want to, go for it!
It has not affected my adult-jobs whatsoever, (i’m a graphic designer) but I had to cover it up when I worked at mcdonalds as a teen (which I find humourous considering my professional jobs could care less!) 🙂

There’s no set age on body mods. If you want it, go for it! You always have the option of taking it out and letting it heal over if you find you dont like it.
