Do not take other people's experiences into account as to whether or not it will leave a scar. That depends on your own skin. I'm sure if I got one it would leave a scar, as I still have scars on my hand from where Kelly C. Turned around around and dug her fingernails into my hand in second grade! I wouldn't get a nose piercing because I have many allergies and blow my nose a LOT during some seasons, and just think it would be too messy!

I've had mine pierced for almost 6 years now, during that time I've worked 4 years as a Paraprofessional in an Pre-K classroom and a year as an intern over seeing all youth programs for Air Force Reserve and Air Nation Guard teens across the country, I met 3 and 4 star generals IN the Pentagon numerous times with my nose ring in, and was actually given a compliment by a general's wife over lunch...I don't think a small stud is a huge deal when it comes to looking professional. I would rather have someone with a small nose stud with a fantastic attitude and was hard working than someone who just looked the part and slid by with their job duties.....Just because I have a piercing doesn't mean I'm unprofessional. Professionalism is also about a person's character and attitude, not just the way they look.

Being "coined" by the Air Force Chief of Services, Air Force Reserve..with my nose ring in.

No, so long as you apply that reasoning to all people, all the time then it is sound. Me, I believe everyone needs to make judgements to stay alive; I don't tell my daughter to pick up hitch hikers, talk to strangers, or get in the car w anyone that asks her to. But, if you do - that's great! After all, just b/c someone is a hitchhiker doesn't mean they are a bad person, perhaps they just ran out of gas, or something.

I'm not saying that I do apply that reasoning to every aspect of my life, I simply said that just because I have a piercing doesn't mean I'm unprofessional. Everyone, I don't care who you are, judges people they meet in life, we all do it..Does that make it right? No, but you can't stop those people from judging you. If someone is a hard worker, honest, and has good work ethic and attitude, a small piercing shouldn't be what holds that person back. That's how I feel about this whole situation. You make yourself who you are, no one is going to do it for you and if you let people try to lead your life they'll take advantage of you and you'll never be in control of your own future...If in the future I should have to take my piercing out for a job, I MAY..but I don't look at someone with piercings and think "Oh I bet they're lazy..they do drugs...I bet they have tattoos...They must not have a job..Why would they want that piercing??" I don't think like that...If someone wants a piercing..so what? It's THEIR body and their decision on whether or not to have the piercing or tattoo..

OP, as far as blowing your nose and it coming out..I've never had that happen..Nor does it collect nasty little things.

A waitress asked her boss about getting a nose piercing. Boss said it was fine as long as she never touched it while at work. She was waiting tables and continually touching her nose which resulted in a warning. The next day same thing. She was fired. Whenever I see a ring thro the bottom of the nostrils I find myself thinking about snapping on a lead shank. Sorry, can't help it.

Drumrunner that's so cool about meeting the generals and others in the pentagon. I feel the same way about people's piercings its all about attitude. I have several friends with many tattoos and piercings but they are really nice and not 'freaks' like some people would think they are if they looked at the cover of the book w/out reading any pages. I want to be clear on this -so you don't think I'm taking sides or bias toward one view point- I'm looking at everyone's comments and I'm seeing all the different POVs on this and not taking and comparing my views with y'all's views. (<basically every comment I look at it and see you guys different perspectives) So feel free to post how ya feel about it so I know the good, bad, and the ugly depending on what you think about it. :)

Actually, I don't think of people w nose piercings as lazy or whatnot, most I have met cannot speak correct english. That wasn't a pre-determined judgement - it is an observation. Its kind of like if every person that one ever met with a tattoo and a few missing teeth was involved in pit bull fighting....one might view all people that have tattoos and missing teeth in a very unfavorable light. But, it doesn't mean that ALL people fitting that description are among the lowest forms of life. Why should one care? Its their decision to judge them and do w their mind what they choose.

I personally feel anyone that wants one should have at it, get 10 if they want... but they should expect and understand that some will judge them, and some might not want to hire them - and those w piercing most certainly should not judge these people for their decision to judge. It is a decision to get one, not a birth defect.

Missy May-True it is something that you get and you live with. To some it is an art and to some classy and to some trashy. People have the right to judge. A nose ring or not people have flaws and some may think that nose rings denote trashiness but also their are the purest looking people that are pure evil or are even crazier than the ones with the nose ring. Some look down on it but some like it. So in the end everything has effects be they little or big some like some hate and some don't care.

I think you and I are talking about the same exact thing..just in another way and it's seeming as though we're having a debate... We both agree that people judge, there's no stopping that..We also agree that just because of one's appearance they may be seen as something they aren't..If the OP wants a piercing, she needs to think about what others who don't know her may think of her..And if she's prepared to take that on, so be it. Get the piercing, I love mine and have a few others..

My whole point was that someone can have a piercing, be professional, and work in a professional environment.
