I'm about to turn 35, and I've been thinking about getting my nose pierced.?
I'm a fairly attractive, down-to-earth, overweight, African-American woman about to turn 35, and I've been thinking about getting my nose pierced with a small diamond or gold stud. I work at a architectural/engineering consulting firm where the attire is pretty much "business casual" (meaning, fairly business-like with clients-- but not Goldman-Sachs conservative, and pretty damn casual if just in the office on a day where there won't be any client meetings-- jeans and t-shirt are acceptable, though most people wear khaki's and nice sweaters or button-up shirts). Should I do it? Are piercings passé? Am I too old? Will I stunt my career growth (I am actually thinking about pursuing jobs in international development in the future)? Will I impede opportunities to find a husband? Please help!! :)

No offense, but I think if you were going to get a piercing, you should have done it a few years ago. It'll look a little...strange. I don't think it would stunt your business growth or keep you from getting a husband if it's small though. I woudn't go for it.

I am your age, and would definately have my nose pierced if I thought it would be a good look for me. Go for it, your work can't discriminate against you, and a nice little diamond stud is purely lovely.

Its a nose piercing its not forever unless you want it to be. You can put a clear one in at work if you feel the need. And do you think you are too old? Its what you think thats most important.
