First You Pierce Your Nose, Then You Have Illegitimate Children

Me: I’m piercing my nose

Mom: Fine, I’m not raising your illegitimate children.

Me: What?

Mom: You’ll pierce your nose, get a trashy boyfriend and end up with illegitimate children. You and your trashy boyfriend are not living in my house, and neither are your kids.

Me: Wow mom, thanks for the credit. Clearly that’s the natural progression after piercing your nose.

      It is a proven fact that having a nose pierced increases chances of having an illegitmate child by 63%.

      I first showed my parents my nose piercing when we met for a family cruise (I had been in college at the time and didn’t tell them). Needless to say we got in such a huge arguement that the ppl staying next to us called the boat security (there was a lot of screaming). Uber embarrassing, but eh, my parents eventually got over it

      Nice to know other moms are like mine.

      Ha! I got my nose pierced while studying abroad so that, when my mom finally saw it, she was just so happy to see ME that she let it go.

      Plus, she thought it was uber cute once she actually saw it on me.

      When I took the piercing out, she actually encouraged me to re-pierce!

      I used to ask my mother what she wanted for Mothers’ Day, and it was ALWAYS “Take out your nosering.” So, I stopped asking. :)

      She told me:
      (1) that no one would hire me
      (2) that it’s just a FAD (again, we’re Indian)
      (3) that women in our part of India don’t pierce their noses (to which I said “What about Auntie S and Auntie P?” I mean, if you’re going to lie, make it good! I shouldn’t be able to disprove in 2.2 seconds.)

      Personally, I think that a nose piercing on a girl is very unattractive. Just depends on what guy you would like to attract. You can have a nose ring and be a success, but it always looks like you have a booger inside your nose. Ha!

      Haha. I have 15 piercings, & everyone says im crazy im currently in tafe doing a piercing course. when i was 13 i perce my nose by myself & i must have been stupid doing it by myself but i already asked to much from my mum bout piercings so i had the net opened up to a link to pierce your nose & a mirror infront of me & shoved the nose ring in. i was suprised that under a minute it was done. my mum told me that i could always have asked her. but as i said when i was 13 i already had 10piercings. now that im turning 16 i only have 15 & still planning to get more as im busy with tafe & my career.

      so girls if you wanna pierce your nose do it & dont care what your parents say, i was lucky that my mum lets me. its your body & they cant tell you what to do.

      she even went with me to claires to buy new nose screws , and didn’t say ANYTHING mean about it…i was even MORE SHOCKED

      Well i disagree completely about the whole if you get your nose peirced u will eventually date a trashy guy, and get knocked up. That is so ridiculous. However, i am 17 yrs old, and when i told my mother that i was geting my nose peired when i turned 18 may 11 she informed me that as long as i lived under her roof i couldnt get any tattoos, or piercings. So boy is she in for a shocker, bc i plan to do both, lol. Ill have my morals and self control with or without tattoos, and piercings. I dont drink, do drugs, or sleep around, so im not worried about how people will portray me with a tattoo or nose piercing. I dont believe little things like that make up who you are personally, there just a form of self expression, and people shouldnt be ragged on for having them.

      I had my nose pierced when I was 19.. I had to take it out because the stud kept falling out. Re-pierced it again a year later and the dreaded lump formed. Once again I took it out. Now that I’m 21 I am going to get it done again. I love how they look and for people to be sterotypical about piercings and tatto’s is normal and very outdated. Do not judge someone because of what they wear… judge by who they are as a person. You would be surprised. And when my grandmother saw my piercing she of course freaked out and said things along the same line… my response was “Grandma, you told me not to judge people because that is Gods job…..” And left it at that!

      So have at it! Just mind how you take care of it… and DO YOUR BEST NOT TO BUMP OR MOVE YOUR PIERCING FOR A FEW WEEKS AFTER ITS DONE…. or the —bump— ill haunt you!

      P.S ** If the bump comes, try using “Tea Tree Oil” It worked a little for me and has worked 100% for friends of mine. **

      When I was 14 I wanted to get my ears double pierced, I asked my mom and she told me “It’s your money and your ears”. Then when I was 16 I wanted to get a 3rd hole in only my left ear … I remembered what my mom said so I just went and did it w/o asking her. Then I said to her “remember when you told me it was my money and my ears? do you still feel that way?” she said yes. So I showed her my 3rd earring – she loved it. I’m 37 now and for my birthday this year I got my nose pierced. She likes that too! She is also curious about the tattoo I got 2 years ago … she loves to look at it and ask me about it.

I wanted my nose pierced since I was 13. Since that was almost 50 years ago I have no idea where I would have seen one. Of course, my parents laughed at the idea and said an emphatic “NO!”. As long as the stud set is tiny I think it is very attractive. Btw, I had my navel pierced at 50 and a tattoo on my foot (2pink dogwood blossoms for the state flower).

      Firstly, brava for jess! My mother told me not to come home some 29 years ago when I first pierced my nose. I was in S.E. Asia teaching after a stint with the Un in West Africa. There was no Thanksgiving Dinner for me on that return visit. I finally grew tired of the shock and awe and removed my nose piercing. Yes, I regretted it. Two days (many years later) ago I re-pierced. The world has changed thought I, people are affected by new geographies on and off-line. Apparently not…

      My 22 year-old son, whom I thought to be very open to different notions of beauty said, and I quote, “Did you ask dad’s permission?” This comes after his father’s meltdown, another “open-minded democrat,” who left our loft in the arts district while stating emphatically that he would not look at me until I removed the piercing. And by the way, didn’t I think I should have asked his, yes–permission. My husband it seems is of the “booger” ilk, only golden, like JB (#21). What is stunning in all of this is the narrowness. My husband, my son, and JB for that matter may not appreciate nose piercings. However, there are others who most certainly do. Further, the expectation that a woman should be expected to ask permission of a man to pierce her nose seems like back-peddling to me. I am a Ph.D. candidate and have lived and worked in West Africa, S.E. Asia, the Middle East, and across the U.S. I certainly think we all need to be sensitive to our partners wishes, on the other hand, there are some compromises that ought never be made.

      I’m 18 and just got my nose pierced. I’d told my mom for years that I’d wanted to do it, and she was fine with it. Then again, she was the first in the family to get a tattoo (just a few years ago), so she really couldn’t say anything to me without being hypocritical. the only rule she had was that I had to pay for it (she had paid for both sets ear piercings). My dad was not so excited about it, but resigned to simply ask why I “wanted another hole in my head”, like he said when I got my ears pierced for the second time.

      Laramie, unfourtunatly your mom is right in some ways with this one…you need to ask yourself WHY….why do you want a piercing? Is it because it looks “cool”? Do all your friends have one? What is it that appeals to you? Do yourself a favor and wait. Wait a year or two just to make sure that this is not “just a phase” you are going through. After giving it some deep thought (and time) ask your parents again. Getting a job is a little tougher with a facial piercing even today. Usually a company has some form of “dress code” prohibiting piercing and tattoos. All I am saying is you are very young and have a lot of time to decide if this is “right” for you. Respect your parents feelings (atleast until your 18).

My parents were always against it and since they were essentially supporting me up until that point, I thought the most respectful thing to do was to wait.
      So for all those 14 year olds out there who just HAVE to have a nose piercing RIGHT NOW….. wait.
      If you still want it when you’re 18, you’ll appreciate it more.
      And your parents will love you more for it. Don’t go behind their back and pierce it. (and especially don’t pierce it yourself! ow~!)

      Btw: I plan on taking out the piercing when I graduate from college. I lovelovelove my ring more than anything, but I don’t want a silly thing like that to prevent me from getting a job.

      I just got my nose pierced today! I am 18 (have been since May ’08) and have wanted to pierce my nose for a very long time. I agree with many people that say that say that you shouldn’t do it before it is legal and without your parents permission. I did not ask my parent’s permission since I am 18 and living away from home at college, but I am going to call my mom tonight and let her know. (I am super nervous about that because she is pretty conservative…oh well…)

      My friend told me that when I call her to tell her I should be like “OK mom, either I am pregnant, an alcoholic, a druggie, have been kicked out of college, or I got my nose pierced. Which would you rather?”

      My dad has always told me that if any of his kids get a piercing then he will get a matching one…haha…he will look very funny with his nose pierced…LOL

      also about the main post. My mom might say something to that effect but I am a very picky person about guys (which can be shown through the fact that I have never had a boyfriend ever and also through the fact that guys have never been interested in me so far that way (someday though)) and I have never had a boyfriend and also never had sex (and don’t plan to till I am married) so therefore there will be no illegitimate children…LOL

      When i was 16 my sister took me to get my nose pierced. And my mom loved it. A week later I got my lip done, at first my mom was like Why did u do it. But after a week or so she got over it and she started to really like it. After having my lip done for 8 months it started to get infected so I took it out. In January I riped my nose ring out in the middle of the night. So about 2 weeks ago my mom took my to get it re-pierced. She also wants my to get my lip done again , so I might go next week to do it. btw I’m 17 now.

      I got my nose pierced 3 weeks ago and I love it! However my mom passed 10 yrs ago but not before I had about 5 tats and 6 holes in my ears. She never said anything about any of it. I do keep my tats small, I have 7 now, and where I work nobody would know. Even with 7 tats and 6 holes in my ears I will only wear a tiny stud in my nose because I work in a grocery store. And can you believe that I’m not really a big fan of nose RINGS. Just the tiny stud. And I just told my husband that I was going to do it. He still loves me! BTW I will be 48 this year.

      This is hilarious because I’ve heard my friends’ moms say that to them. I had my eyebrow, lip and tongue pierced from 15-on. I’m now 25 and I have none of them.

      Courtney @ 39: Oh honey–whether your mom is “right” or not, it is her house and until you can afford not only to pierce your nose, but the mortgage/rent on the roof over your head; the payment/insurance on the car your drive or the cost of public transportation if you don’t drive; all of the food that goes into your mouth; and all of the clothes on your back, you really need to respect her wishes. Listen to the poster who said waiting until you are on your own makes it that much sweeter. That having been said, I cannot imagine a mom who would kick their child out of the house for such a minor thing. Maybe make her take it out until she goes off to college… ;)

      Clotilde @ 53: Wow, oh wow…your husband SO DOES NOT HAVE THE RIGHTS the mom above does. You are a grown woman and should NOT have to ask your husband’s “permission” to do anything to your body. This made me so mad I couldn’t see straight!

      my mom didn’t want me to get my nose pierced because she somehow convinced herself that nose rings hark back to A) India, where according to my mother women have been considered inferior to men for ages and therefore their nose piercings are a symbols of such, or B) to the days of slavery, during which time it was apparently common for slaves to have septum piercings and as such getting ANY type of nose piercing would recall this outrage.

      I promise she’s not ignorant. just delusional.

      I just want to start off by saying all of you 13 and 14 year olds who are dead set on getting your nose pierced and other piercing, just wait! i am turning 18 on the 25th and i am just now getting my ears double pierced and my nose pierced. My parent are a lil on the conservative side but because i have waited until im 18 they really dont care that much. My mom might even go with me before my b-day to go and get them done, only so they can heal before i have to have a shoulder surgey. ( i dont know why i just said all that lol) any ways, i still say wait till you are of legal age. and to the people who say that all the piercing and tatoos attract the wrong tpye of people, who are you to say what the right type is for somebody ( even if they are your childrens boyfriends or girlfriends).

      I’m going tomorrow to get my nose pierced and I am nervous. When i first got into my piercing I was 18 and i got my tongue pierced, then I got my Nipple and belly button done. Then i got the other nipple done. Believe it or not, mom thought it was awesome. She begged me to get my nose done, and I am 27 now. We look at it as individuality, when ya let someone talk ya out of something that you want to do it is like they take a part of you. Trust me i took all my piercings out just to make things better between my husbands family and I. Big Catholic families and very judgemental. It will always bug me that I did that, that i let someone get to me that way. Ridiculous, and as far as asking your husband for permission. PLEASE! When did they become your momma and own ya. If they said no I would go out that night and do it. hehe!

      First time I’ve ever posted here, but I couldn’t help myself! I had my tongue pierced 12 years ago. Which means it was done before everyone had one lol. I have my lip pierced and my nose pierced. Both ears are pierced multiple times and I have 5 tattoos so far. I was at a family gathering one day and had my aunt (who first helped me dye my hair when I was 15) ask me if I’d “allow” my children to get piercings or tattoos. I told her no. I will take my children to get their tattoos and/or piercings until they are over 18 and can make their own choices on an artist. In fact, I’ve told all four of my kids that when they turn 16 I will take them and get them a tattoo. She looked at me like I had 2 heads and was shooting flames from my mouth.

      My reasons for this are valid. I would ten times rather know who is doing the piercing/inking and what they are getting done than to have them do it themselves or in their friend’s basement with no supervision. I can’t tell them not to do it, but will encourage them to make the decision based on personal choice and not just because everyone is doing it. My family is super religious and I’m the black sheep lol. They love me anyway and that makes everything ok.

      I think this is completely wrong. I am fifteen years old and my parents we’re perfectly fine with my nose piercing. It took them awhile to say yes. As long as I bought it with my own money. It is not whorish at all. I think you are saying that people that have nose piercings are whores. It’s just a piercing, I think you are making it a big deal.

Just a few days ago, I asked if I could get my ears double pierced and my nose done and my dad says he doesn’t care if I get piercings and my mom says it’s okay if my dad gives the thumbs up. I’m going to get my ears and nose done soon, and eventually eyebrow and navel.

      So. Get this. I begged my dad for about a year and a half to get my belly button pierced. That is the only piercing I have on my body. I don’t even have my ears done, surprisingly. I want tattoos when I get older of course, but only two. Now. Back to the nose-ring convo. I asked my dad for that. He said “Absolutely not. I thought you weren’t even going to keep your bellybutton ring.” Wrongggg, I’m keeping it daddy. Haha. And guess what. I’m planning to keep nagging him for the nose ring. Just because you get one, doesn’t mean anything. Doesn’t mean you’ll have a trashy boyfriend, or you’ll have a kid. If you make yourself think that, then it’ll happen. But if you don’t, I highly doubt it. And if you think before you make your choices, you definitely won’t have any problems. But you can’t blame it on a piercing for your future life events. That’s not the piercings fault, after all, it’s just metal. Think about what I said. Even if I am only 15. Someone small can always make a difference you know. :)

      I honestly always thought parents fight about the little things to stop us from doing the big things. I had to sneak around to start putting make-up on, to have more than one necklace on at school (v. conservative school), wear heels, ‘different cloths’, etc… But whenever I felt I’d ‘won’ one of those victories, I always felt I owed it to the parents to behave since they had been so understanding. Obviously, not my train of thought at the time, but when I look back on it now I think it’s hilarious the way me and most of my friends thought we were being rebellious with piercings, and clothes and music and tats, but at the same time studied hard at school, and most of us ended up with good careers (not necessarily making lots of money, but things we enjoy doing and that bring satisfaction).
      One of my really good friends is married to a pastor, and she has a few tats that are visible, and a few piercings, including her nose. The little old ladies at church think it’s sweet, and she says she likes them because it reminds her of when she was ‘wild’ and makes her thankful for what she has now. So everything on your body creates a history, just make sure it’s something you’d be happy to remember, and not ‘I got this done at 14 coz my mum didn’t want me to.’

      My parents had a weird reaction to me piercing myself. They never wanted to take me and expect saying no, so I just grabbed one of my self piercing earrings, sat in front of the mirror with some cleaner and a grape and pierced my cartilage myself. It hurt cause I went through it slowly cause I freaked out a little after I seen my own blood but after it went through I was fine. They didn’t notice it until about 2 days after and they kinda just asked why and shook their heads… I mean they really couldn’t do much, it was already in my head. My boyfriend freaked more than my parents did when he found out that I pierced it (lol). I wonder what they’re gonna do when I pierce my nose… And I’m indian so this is gonna be funny.

      I’ve wanted this piercing for years and finally I do it, and now I have to contend with Mr. Sourpuss. BTW, he’s a lot older than me and tries to control me – ‘tries’ being the operative word here.
