Fashion Fact #29- Nose Piercing

Nose Piercing: Nose piercing dates back to approximately 2000 BC in the Middle East. Nose Piercing is very popular in India. It was brought to India during the 16th century by the Moghul emperors in the Middle East. In India, the nose ring or stud is generally worn in the left nostril because it is said to help with childbirth. In the west, nose piercing became popular during the 1960s among hippies and later by the Punk movement.
