Piercing Screams

Last night a conversation took place regarding re-piercing my nostril, as well as adding small surgical steel gauges to my ears. That was fun.
By today's standards, my better half is a really accepting and uncontrolling sort. After having watched the progression of one fully sleeved arm (and accepting that the other arm, shoulders, and back are soon to follow) she has become that much more relaxed about the idea of body modification... kinda.
She has admitted taking a liking to my arm and has gone so far as to consider it "sexy." I also have small gauged double piercings in each ear which she has admitted does not bother her in the least. However the discussion of alternative piecrings (the only one I will ever consider is my nostril) is a bone of contention that always ends with one or both of us frustrated and less understanding than when the conversation began.
Her argument is that it makes people look unintelligent. It makes people look like trailer trash (no offense to those of you living in mobile homes.) It makes people look stupid. She considers piercings disgusting. She says that there are no men my age running around with their nostrils pierced (no, they are wearing khaki's and polo shirts and cheating on their spouses and ignoring their children). And she says that piercings are for high school kids who wind up them taking them out when they grow up and realize how stupid they look (paraphrasing here.)
(((SIGH!)))
I am quite intelligent. I don't live in a trailer. I am not stupid. I am relatively attractive (aren't I?) I am not like other men my age. And I have long since left high school, yet still make many conscious decisions to change my life for my personal betterment.
I am told that I am a grown man and capable of making my own decisions, but Jesus Fucking Christ! When I get a list of negatives that possess the potential for damaging my relationship with my better half, my manhood is all but stripped from me, thus leaving me with cotton tufts where my testicles once were and a Twizzler for a penis.
Gee, direct me to the nearest piercing studio.

Actually, my ex husband has his nose pierced (he's 33) and totally does all you said as well. (The nose piercing was recent btw.) He cheated and to this day ignores our daughter with the exception of holidays and her birthday, oh and let's not forget the check every other month. (I have to call and remind him of this.) He adopted his step son when his wife died (less then a year ago) and has since gone thru 4 (I think) women and is now living with one.

Yes the description of a nose pierced male is fitting, and then some.
