    the nose area is really thick, it will hurt if you do it yourself w/o a peircing needle

    it's fast and painless at the tattoo shop, just a few tears in the eyes

    peircings are cool because you can take them out when you don't want them anymore

    they get infected to easily, once they are infected... it keeps happening.... and there is a risk of your sinuses getting infected from it. and they catch on EVERYTHING... towels... pillow cases.. shirts... and u have to sleep with a bandaid on ur nose for the first couple of months at night time. ugh im taking mine out once the current infection goes away

    ETA:im making way too many typos today

    look up staph infection, then loo at the pics, a common place that bacteria lives is in your nose, why take a chance at gettin that by putting a uselees wound on your face ?

    Absolutely NOT a good idea. If you screw up, there's gonna be a scar. On your face.

    I got my nose pierced back in college in SOHO of NYC. It was a pretty shady establishment as I'm not quite sure they sterilized all of their piercing/tattooing equipment. But it cost only 20 big ones, and to a broke college student it was the greatest deal ever. It hurt a little bit, which was to be expected considering a 20 gauge needle is being shoved through a layer of nerve-infused flesh, but after it healed it looked pretty darn good if you ask me.

    Anyhoo, please go to a professional. So many things can go wrong in that scenario! It will hurt a lot less, it'll look better, and infections are nasty things to deal with.
