Wednesday, May 26

I did something slightly crazy and somewhat out of character. With photographic evidence.

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]
Dad: ...
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]
Dad: Why?
Me: Because I'm artsy.
Nanny: I thought it was a spot gone peculiar.

All in all, a pretty good reception.

I LOVE IT. Totally suits you, doll.

And I still get nervous about showing the 'rents a new tattoo. Weird, that.

I think it looks good on you......personally wouldn't do it, to chicken. I've wanted a tattoo before, but never went there either. Your nanny is so funny, I can hear her saying that.:)

A "spot gone peculiar". I love that line!
So how does it work? How does it stay in. Is there a magnet on the inside of your nose? A post like and earring? Does it hurt??? I have so many questions!

Hmmmm ... love the piercing on you! Let me know what you think of their tattoo abilities; Stu and I are on the lookout for a studio up here.

Nothing could mar your beauty, except maybe a tongue ring, or an eyebrow ring, or a belly button ring or...
Seriously it only enhances your beautiful face. I love it. Not so sure about Papa.Love, Paca

Hawt!

And I have a number of those "spots gone peculiar"...and up until the day my grandmother passed away I hid them from her...forget the fact I was 30-years-old!

That's it. Nanny's my new best friend.

I've had two nose rings and counting. You just never know when I'll go for a third.

Also? You totally rock it.

i LOVE it! i used to have mine pierced but had to take it out for a summer job in college...then got it pierced again and had to take it out for knee surgery. i swear one day when i'm a famous non-starving artist, i will get it done again.

and when my parents saw it, dad asked me if i had a nail in my nose.
