Nose piercings: from lumps to horrific snot situations (and how much it actually hurts) - here's what you need to know before getting your nose did...

In 2009 I got my nose pierced, and I can’t really remember anything about it except a big lump and loads of blood squirting on my exam paper (Literary Criticism And Theory, or something...).

Then I got it re-pierced five months ago and while me and my piercing have had some good times, we’ve also had some shockers. If you’re thinking of getting it done, then someone needs to tell you the truth, and not the ‘Oh, you might get a lump but it’ll go really quickly’ truth. The ‘hard lumps of snot’ truth.

See what it's really like to get a nose piercing...
