Did you know that nose piercing is the second-most requested type of piercing in the United States? It's not just a fad. In fact, it's an ancient practice with a 4,000-year history. Curious about this type of piercing? These reasons may finally get you to go to your piercer and have your nose pierced ASAP.
It has cultural significance
In ancient India, the nose was meant for more than breathing and detecting smells. It was believed that the nose was also involved with fertility. In the 1970s hippies who traveled to India learned about nose piercings and embraced the practice.
Meanwhile in South Africa, nose jewels are worn by the Berber and Beja to display their wealth. The Berber and Beja believe, however, that larger the jewel, the wealthier the family.
It is still quite common for people in the contemporary culture of these parts of the world to get their nostrils pierced for cultural reasons. You can display a connection with your culture by getting your nose pierced as well.
It can give you a sense of belonging
For some, a nose piercing is also a statement of belonging. Many subcultures, such as goths and punks, are very body-piercing friendly, and getting a nose ring can help someone feel like he fits in with his friends. It's a sign of a shared aesthetic in just the same way that haircuts and clothing fashions can be.
It can help you heal
After a long illness or traumatic injury, some people like to get a piercing as an act of spiritual healing. It's an attempt to "reclaim" the body from its trauma; for some, inflicting intentional, chosen pain and transforming it into something beautiful.
