11 years ago I was on holidays & we chanced upon really cheap tapes. I bought Alanis Morrissette, my friend bought Joan Osbourne. It transpired afterwards that I hated her music and that God Was One of Us song because I was disgusted by her nose ring. My friend bought the album and liked the song because he found her very attractive with her nose ring.

We both judged primarily on the visual. I'm always curious about the ethics of humans and their appearance.

Certain piercings don't bother me but even when I know someone very well & love them, there will still be something inside me that will be disgusted by them if they have a nose ring. If I meet someone new with a nose ring, I won't want to get to know them. What can I say, I'm a piercingist.


  1. Interesting you should bring it up, there's a piece in the papers this morning about how a naval stud nearly killed a girl in a car crash in the UK.


  2. MW and I both had nose piercings at one time lest you forget, little miss amnesia.
