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.

That's nice to know because I have been thinking well what if I like it right now but then have a change in what I like.

Exactly....

You do not see too many Lawyers, Doctors, Pharmacists, Bankers, Executives or even highly paid Secretaries, Assistants, etc. with visible Tattoos and Piercings.
But if your life's ambition is to work at McDonalds, Walmart or a Convenience store, then that is someones choice.

No offense, just my opinion, but I have met too many beautiful women that ruined their Natural Beauty with Nose Rings, Tats and Studs in the Lips or Eyebrows.

I think small ones are cute. If I was younger, I'd get one.

That's the funniest thing I've read today! I did go fishing this afternoon, glad I didn't nose dive into my tackle box.

Dear people who comment on this post it urks my nerves in a HUGE way when people post about working at Mc. Donalds, Walmart, ect.. Post anything but can you please refrain from mentioning those types of jobs or careers in future posts. I'm (I don't have but 1 set of piercings in the lower part of my ear 1 hole in each) way smarter and many people are that want or have piercings are. That is degrading. Sorry but that is a way to get on my bad side and I don't mean to come off as rude but that is not something I like to see said or typed period. I want to get opinions on peoples views on this and I like everyone's views but please refrain in the future.

Mary,

My post was directed at you, I was agreeing with 3 previous posters about looking Professional in Fortune 500 companies and how many Higher paying jobs frown on Nose Rings, Tats and other items.

My analogy was one in which was a comparison of High Paying Jobs and Low Paying Jobs....

When someone asks for opinions on Nose Rings, they should realized everyone's opinions may not match theirs and take constructive criticism like an adult.

I do take constructive criticism and have been because of the previous posts I can see everyone's points here. That analogy I don't like because I have had that thrown at me before for no reason at all except the woman didn't like me apparently so I dislike that analogy greatly. I'm also concerned of being professional in professional jobs. I'm not mad at all and I see everyone's point and if I got a professional job in the future I would take it out or hide it to the best of my ability "if" I ever get it to begin with. We all have our differences and I'm weird because that is just one of my idiosyncrasies. Don't mean to offend you and I see your point.
