Ah, piercings and tattoos. I've had several piercings. I have a tattoo and it won't be the last.

It depends on how long you've had it. I had a nose piercing and loved it. Then I joined the military and it had to be removed.
But it did close up despite the fact I had it in for over a year. There is no scar there. Unless you saw a picture of me, you would have never known there was a piercing there.
And even if it didn't close up, when I took the piercing out the hole was not noticeable unless you were right up on my face. But because of the location, if you decided you didn't want it anymore all you have to do it take is out. It should heal after a while.
As far as professionalism, it depends on your particular job and location. As it is everywhere in the world some locations are more open to different things. Where I'm from it's honestly not that abnormal to see a female with a nostril piercing. It's not abnormal to see visible tattoos. Heck, my dogs' Vet has them! As long as someone doesn't have a face full of metal or vulgar tattoos I personally don't find it unprofessional. It's their form of expression and I can give a hoot about it as long as they do their job good.
But to each their own.
