I always thought nose piercings were cool, but I never thought I would end up getting one. I didn’t seriously consider getting one until recently when I started to come out of my shell a bit. I have always been the shy quiet girl that didn’t want any attention to be drawn toward me and in my head a nose piercing would do just that. I have definitely become less shy and now I often do things or wear things just because they are weird.
Growing up with half of my extended family being very southern and fairly conservative I knew not everyone would like it, but that only made me want to get one even more. My immediate family has always been all about doing your own thing and expressing yourself however you feel you can so I knew it wouldn’t be an issue with my parents or sisters. If anything I thought my oldest sister would be mad because I pierced my nose before she did. I was also scared it would hurt. It honestly didn’t hurt much at all and it was over in about 10 seconds. I definitely built it up a lot in my head. Anyway, I’m really glad I got it because it helps reinforce how weird I am which I strangely love. 9/10
