Well, I got my nose pierced two days ago, on Saturday.
I've sneezed twice and rigorously blown my nose many times and have had essentially no pain, except for the unavoidable sensitivity due to the freshness of the wound.
I got the piercing at a place called "Warrior Piecings", which pleases me very much.
Whekn the ring was in, the first thing Martine said was, "Oh, you look so cute!", which got amusing looks from all around the parlor.
The nose ring represents many things to me, but most of all, it's fun to play with. Instead of pulling on a beard like my papa, I call play with my nose ring while I work.
