africankinky asked: How do I convince my Nigerian parents to let me get a nose piercing , I'm a 16 year old girl and it have wanted one ever since I was 13. My mom said I could only get one if my dad said it was okay, but my dad thinks it makes people look like an ashawo. So what do I do ?
Hello ! Firstly there is no way they will agree to you getting it done :p secondly I would not recommend you getting it done either you will probably regret it in the end when you want to get into a formal career and realise that it’s not a good look to have as a lawyer banker doctor and many more . Listen to your parents they know best :)
