I got my nose pierced last Wednesday.
At Albatross Tattoo. I highly recommend the place, although I can't speak to the tattooing. Yet. (Haha! Just kidding, Mom!)
Even though I've been married for nearly six years and have had a mortgage for three of those, I was still afraid of showing my parents my new piercing.
Scene: Last Thursday morning.
Me: Look! [emphasizes nose area with jaunty head tilt]
Mom: That's not real is it?
Me: Yeah it is.
Mom: Is not.
Me: Yes, it is. [tilts head back so she can look up my nostril]
Me: Because I'm artsy.
Nanny: I thought it was a spot gone peculiar.
All in all, a pretty good reception.
