I had my navel done 10 years ago, and I loved it! Wasn't really visible, though, unless I wanted it to be.

Of course I don't know you and you don't know me at all, so my opinion may not be necessary, and I say do whatever you like - but I personally find nose piercing and tongue piercing undesirable. Or I guess I mean icky. That's just in case you want a different opinion. I guess that isn't what you asked, so take it for what it's worth... Have fun, whatever you decide to do!

I had my cartilage on my ear done twice, but since I wear over the ear hearing aids it kept getting very sore-- not infected, just irritated. I had to give up on that. :( I kinda wanted it so the hearing aids wouldn't be all you see. I also had my belly button- until I had a laproscopic appendectomy- then it had to come out.

Just from experience- for the initial piercing it may not hurt to spend the extra for 14kt gold or titanium. I've noticed that my piercing done with stainless steel took much longer to heal than the titanium did. Also, the titanium is so light you barely even know it's there, so you have less irritation. Just my two cents... even with my 15 yr old basic ear piercings (double pierced) there are some days all I can wear is gold or titanium. I tend to be allergic to anything, so if I can wear titanium with no problem- I figure anyone can
I've debated getting the cartilage re-done, but funny thing- I keep spending the $$ on yarn... oh well... guess I don't have my heart set on it if the money disappears so easily!

I have a few tats but as far as holes go I have aquired enough of them already, some of which weren't exactly my idea or planned. Those kinda hurt but ya get over it.

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

I say definitely go for it!! I just love tattoos and piercings, if it weren't for money constraints, I'd have a ton more of both! I have my eyebrow, tongue, and septum...Had my lip pierced but I had to lose it due to a recurring infection :( I currently have 8 tattoos as well and plan on getting PLENTY more! I'm 30 years old now and was 17 when I got my first piercing...I don't think I'll ever lose them, they're too much a part of me...I've contemplated getting my lip done again, but, I'm a bit nervous about another infection...

I had my bellybutton pierced as part of a bet with my little sister. She said i couldn't do it and i said i could. We went together and got it done. It's funny, because the guy kept asking me if i'm ok (it really didn't hurt that much). Finally i said "Why are you asking me all the time?" and he said "because tough guys come here and faint while i do the piercing" lol. I don't think i would be getting a nose piercing, but if you like it - go for it! I'm considering tattoes, actually... My mom will lose it if she finds out...

I had my eyebrow pierced for about 3 years and took it out for a job interview (and never put it back in). Now I want to get a little nose stud. I have no idea how it'll be taken at work. I've seen others with it, and I don't think there are rules per se, but I don't think it really fits the business dress code either

Only my ears are pierced. I want one of those dainty little nose "studs" but my husband tells me that's the silliest thing I've ever thought of doing.

Umm.. they are when they end up getting infected and you have to have it removed urgently with a pair of pliers and wire cutters. I have a rotting great scar above my navel.

Navel rings are only good if your stomach is flat and you don't have to wear clothes on / over it for the first 6 weeks.

But go for the nose ring! I've been thinking of getting one myself.. :D
