SWEET TEA

Ouchy-Wah-Wah!


Look what we allowed.

Youngest DD has been wanting a "nose stud"
and my husband & I finally gave her the OK.
She is 15 (16 in Nov).

Would you allow this?

Sweetie, if that's the worst thing a kid wants these days I'd be doing the happy dance. I don't care for them, but better than a bunch of ink. And it is her nose after all. Are you still home schooling her? The schools here don't allow any facial piercings or visible tattoos. Kat

Several years ago it was me who wanted the nose piercing. I didn't do it and who knows, I still might. I would allow this for my daughter, at the age of 16 or so. Not sure what my husband would think though! I think it's beautiful!

I think it's cute and like Kat says, it's definitely much more harmless and can easily close when she decides she no longer wants it.

Robin said...

I agree....if this is the worst things she wants to do, then let her have it!

When oldest son came home with his ears pierced, we figured if that was the worst thing he was going to do, we were okay!
I still don't understand how they can blow their nose with those things in! :D

I think it's fine. My son wanted his ear peirced at 9, we said okay. Now he doesn't even wear it.
You're only young once and it's fun to try new things, as long as they are safe.
Good job mom for being openminded.

I like nose piercings. I agree...if this is the worse thing.

When my step daughter was 17 (or 18 can't remember exactly) she wanted her tongue pierced badly so her dad took her to get it done -- she lasted all of 4 hrs with the stud in her mouth before deciding she hated it -- I was glad as the lisping was awful...all his kids (3) are the illustrated people though -- tattoos everywhere -- she looked odd in her sleeveless wedding dress to me...

All I can do is echo what everyone else has said. You pick your battles. I'm just glad none of my kids wanted this done!

Joyce said...

I agree that we must pick our battles and you've been dealing with a few things so if it doesn't bother you then no worries.

I told my girls no facial piercing but they never wanted them so that was easy. I know if piercing your navel had been popular when I was younger and had a super flat stomach I'd have been all over that one. My dad was horrified that I pierced a second hole in my ear when i got to college.

Every generation has its thing : )

Mimi said...

Yep, I'd go along with a piercing like that. It's those horrible "gage" ear things that scare the crap out of me.

I think it looks pretty.

Hugs & love,
Mimi

All of mine wanted piercings (son and daughters)and they all have tatoos. If this is the worst thing that she ever does consider yourself blessed.

I think the nose piercings aren't so bad, especially if they keep small feminine stuff in them.

My son has a piercing through his nipple. I hate it and once when he was talking smart to me, I told him not to get too close or I would rip that thing out! :)

Relyn said...

She looks great!

Me (aka Danielle) said...

Ouch!

That's a tough decision to make. My initial reaction is "NO"..but that is always a lot easier said when not facing such a question -head on. Only YOU know what is best for you and yours...

Jewel said...

I have to be honest and say "no". We've always told our son that as long as he lived with us, he would have to follow our guidleines and he did. AND thankfully, he never wanted a piercing or tattoo. :-)
I had my ears pierced when I was in the 7th grade, I believe it was, and my parents didn't know about it until after the fact. But they didn't mind.
I do agree that you do have to pick your battles but some things are just not negotiable.
