And I apologize if it sounds like I'm rude sorry I'm really not trying to be ....SouthernTrailsGA you have a really good point. I agree in a lot of situations it is not a good thing to have because it does look unprofessional to some people/ employers. Thanks for the opinion the other comment I made was in general to everyone in the future posts that I thought I should address and I don't want it to seem like I was saying it to you because that is really not what I meant by it.

I don't really mean it to be different I really like how it looks and I just want one. I don't know of very many people close to me that have nose piercings a couple maybe three. I don't know if that explains what you don't understand or not.

I was being somewhat facetious. Body piercing or tatoos are odd to me and I don't think they enhance anyone's appearance. Different strokes for different folks. Tattos could be useful, for example if used for medical designations. Other than that, why make it perminent? Same with piercing, why not glue it on?

As far as not knowing anyone close to you w one, you might move someday. They are very common in some areas.

I have had my nose pierced for about 5 years and I currently have a nose ring in.
Where I am from some places will employ you with a small stud in, but it depends entirely on what the job is. For example, in a fast food restaurant they will not allow you to wear one unless it is covered by a plaster. Some places also let you wear retainers (a clear stud) as they are barely visible unless you're looking at it close up (you can cover them in foundation to make it look more skin coloured). The hole is not that visible if you take the jewellery out, especially if you wear foundation. I used to take mine out every day for school and anybody from school who would see me out always used to ask me when I got my nose pierced because they had never noticed anything there before.
The problem with nose piercings is that they take a long time to heal properly, mine took just over a year. I suggest if you do plan on getting it pierced you do it when you have a break from school/work because you're not supposed to change/take out the jewellery until you've had the piercing for at least 6 weeks. It WILL get irritated and sore if you take it out and put it back in again throughout the day until it is fully healed.
I also have my belly pierced (I did have it done twice at the bottom, but they unfortunately rejected so now I only have the top part done). Even though they are surface piercings and have a higher risk than some other piercings of rejecting they are usually good. I don't know anyone who has had any severe problems. The key is to clean it properly and not touch it. A lot of the time belly piercings get sore because people touch and play with them which spreads germs and unsettles the healing process which will make the skin reject it. If you're riding horses whilst it's still healing be especially careful when mounting and dismounting as the last thing you want is for the piercing to get caught.

I haven't read all of the posts, you may have said how old you are and what your ambitions are and where you are in your pursuit of a career? My opinion isn't any different than others that have recommended against it, my personal taste, don't like them at all.

I did many things when I was growing up without too much forethought, now I can look back and can see that I wasn't very wise with some of my decisions. I've also found that opportunity present themselves and when you least expect it, that could apply in your social and professional life. How you act or look today could impact someone decisions tomorrow.

I'm sure that you're a beautiful young lady just as you are, why do you need an extra hole in your head?

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 don't know...I looked on the net and it appears that neither Walmart nor McDonalds allow visible piercings or tattoos.

I have worked at a lot of places over the years, and have never worked anywhere that permitted visible piercings or tattoos. I don't know why anyone would limit their career choices that way, but to each his/her own...

I personally have two piercings and 3 tattoes. Only one tattoo can be seen. (It is on my wrist). I have my nose and lip pierced, but rarely wear my nosering anymore and will probably let it close up.

I've never had any problems with people finding me unprofessional. Even in the horse world. Usually they meet me, speak with me, and find out that my appearance has nothing to do with the quality of my work. Piercings and tattooes are really not uncommon anymore. In fact, I find it a little more rare to find people without them. =D

Just my opinion though.

Also, the clear retainers DO work. If you decide to get it pierced, just take very good care of it to begin with and keep rotating the ring. I'd suggest a ring instead of a stud to begin with as the studs tend to fall out and not heal properly whereas a ring allows you to turn it frequently and will stay in no matter what.

Hope that helps.

I think they are rather cute on the right nose :) maybe for your job you can get one that looks like a mole and put it in. I know my niece has one like that for her monroe piercing
