I really want a nose piercing. But my mum doesn't want me to. I don't know if I should let this be and say no more or push this because I really do want one. Comments welcome:)

Before considering any piercing, you should consider the long-term effects of a piercing. First ask yourself "how long will I want this piercing?" Will you still have it when you are 40? If you don't, obviously you'll take it out. However, any type of piercing leaves an obvious scar. I know several women who regret their nose piercings because of their scars. I'd talk to your mother (not argue or whine) and ask her reasons why she not letting you get a nose piercing. Honestly, your mother knows you best and has experienced far more things than you have. I'd listen to her and take her advice. There are always magnet nose piercings. If your mum does not want you to have a magnet one, listen to her- she knows best. Hope this helps :)

My oldest sister got a nose piercing a few years ago, and she said it hurt a lot, so if you don't like pain, be warned. :p
I agree with everything Southern just said. :)

To be 100% honest with you... nose piercings are pretty awesome. They can go anywhere from big and noticable to small and cute, but any piercing hurts. Nose piercings hurt a lot more than you think. Personally, I'm considering getting a (small) one myself. My mum thinks small ones are pretty cute but wants me to wait to get mine till I'm 18 just because I already have other piercings (just my ears) and she doesn't want too many on me. If your mum is against the piercing, then you should probably respect her decision. But it doesn't hurt to talk to her, respectfully of course, and expain your reasons for wanting that piercing. If she still says no,it's not a good idea to push the issue. You can always get one when you move out, so it's only a matter of a couple years. It's not something you have to get right now or else you'll die, right? :P Good luck!

septum piercing are really in right now. And it is really easy to hide for work, school , or home. You could just hide it in your nose. and if you get tired of it and want to take it out, no noticable scar.
