I asked him why he chose to pierce his nose. His eloquent and very 19-yro response: "Because I don't have anything pierced or tatooed and I'm already 19, so this is the time to do it. If I wait until I get much older, it'll just be stupid to do it then."
I have no idea what that means. I got my one and only tatoo at age 30.
Could he not have started with perhaps an ear? You go for the nose first thing? Eeeek.
