When I was 7 I had my ears pierced. It looked cute and I had a few pairs of earrings. Within about 6 months I started to get horrid cysts in my ears, I had to let the holes close up. 10 years later I got them pierced again, same problem.
I've always thought about getting my nose or eyebrow pierced. I didn't think tweezing or threading would work too well with a piercing. This past Friday while looking at a webpage for a threading place I noticed they did piercing (place full of Indian women).
I took the plunge and got a nose stud. I chose the left side for traditional reasons.
"In India the outside of the
left is the preferred position of the piercing as this is supposed to
make childbirth easier. This is because Ayurvedic medicine associates
this location with the female reproductive organs.""
