Just because it “looks cool” or you think it’s “totally awesome” isn’t a good reason to get a piercing in my opinion.
You have to have inspiration/a story/a desire, you know, a truelly good reason to want to get it done – my father got his first tattoo when he was 16, of our family crest, because he wanted to show he had pride in his name and his ties.
So as I thought about it, I really needed to decide my reason for wanting this piercing.
I think I’ve come up with a few.
A) The obvious one.
I’d really like this piercing because, well, it looks really cool. It’s less common than the ones on the sides of ones nostril – I like less common piercings, and besides, when I do see it on people, I love it, I wish I had it, and it looks a lot less trashy, and unattractive in my opinion than lip piercings, bridge piercings, eyebrow piercings, and nostril piercings. So of course, the obvious reason is because, I really, really like it, I think it looks wonderful, and it is reasonably designed to the point where it doesn’t look horrifically idiotic.
B) The really not obvious one.
I really like body modification – tattoos, piercings, pocketing, – and while most mods – pocketing, nipple/belly button piercings, inside of your mouth piercings, anchors, surface piercings, and large, poster sized tattoos, – are not something I’m looking into right now, septum piercings are my favorites of all the body mods, and the most practical for later in life decisions, next to ear piercings, of course.
I feel that if I can get this done – Be aware, I’m 16, so convincing my parents in the issue here, – It’s going to mean a lot more to me than just buying it myself two years from now when I’m 18, and might not have the money. I’m trying to work for this piercing, that’s the agreement I made with my parents, and because I like this piercing so much, I would feel tremendous pride and tremendous accomplishment by earning it, and working for it myself.
I want to show that I can work for something I really want, and won’t give up halfway through. I want to prove that I’m serious about this, and it’s not just some stupid decision to look “cool” through high school. This is something I’ve wanted since I was ten – I’ve asked for it since then at least.
