I've tried a 'fake' ring and I think I look rather good with it, but I already have my lip pierced and I'm starting to worry too much about what other people will think...not passers-by, I don't care about them, but I mean customers. I have a job where I have to go into people's homes and I've noticed just with my current look I get a few surprised faces and I'm not that extreme.
Should I give a damn either way if I want it done, especially given I can take it out at any time? Btw I have no 'boss' to worry about, I'm self-employed.
IMO a lip piercing is more 'extreme' than a nose piercing anyway. Nose piercings are tiny and not particularly noticable anyway, especially once you change the origional stud to a smaller one. If you want it, get it
Yeah, it's only "other people's" reactions I'm worrying about. Even though I'm 24, I had a bit of an argument with my mum over it, but I feel/look good with it. So perhaps that's all I should worry about.
