Sowing the few remaining wild oats left in my basket was, indeed, fun. But it would appear that my nose is not cut out for having a hole cut out of it. After three weeks of carefully cleaning and nursing the nostril piercing, it became clear to me that I would live with the perpetual risk of developing a permanent keloid scar.
I remain enamored with the the tiny, delicate sparkle of a nostril piercing but wax furious when I envision it accompanied by a persistent bump. Those of you with more agreeable, less sensitive skin, tip o' the hat to you!
Goodnight, sweet nose piercing.
You are wise, dear Sarabeth. I rebelled in college and decided I wanted a piercing. Being responsible even in my rebellion, I researched the piercing least likely to leave a scar and the internets told me that a nose ring would not leave a scar. I pierced my nose freshman year of college and kept it in (despite my obvious sensitivity) almost two years. The internets failed me! Five years after removing my nose ring, I still have traces of it left on my nose. You may not have any sparkle in your nose, but rest assured that your personality is sparkling a plenty and that your nose will not be permanently marred.ReplyDelete
I had the same problem with a cartiledge piercing in my ear. . . it wouldn't really heal and there was this weird bump. I removed it after several months . . . but tried again two years later. Same thing happened.ReplyDelete
Then, when I moved to B/CS, I had my navel pierced. . . the same thing happened with IT.
I'm just not meant for rebellious piercings.
