Q:

Where can someone get nose piercings?

A:

There are many venues that do professional piercings for the nose as well as other body parts like the ear, eyebrow, tongue and lip. Some tattoo parlors may also offer a piercing service.

Body piercing is one of the oldest forms of body modification, dating back thousands of years. Nose piercing, in particular, is a very popular practice, with nostril piercing being one of the most common forms. While a common practice for many years in Eastern countries, nose piercing did not become popular until the 20th century. In the last few decades, body piercing and tattooing have become more accepted and commonplace.
