when I was in Chennai I started thinking, hey, maybe I'll get my nose pierced... so I asked a woman if there is a significance to either side. She said one side meant Brahmin, the other side was everyone else. But now I can't remember which side is which.....
does anyone here know? does one side really mean Brahmin? or does it make a difference?
I'm seriously considering it, and the gal who re-did one of my tattoos today has a pierced right nostril, but she said she was told it was the "wrong" side. But she also said that an Indian woman told her that the right nostril was OK for a woman. I told her in India many women have both nostrils pierced, so it's gotta mean something!
ok, now stop laughing, y'all, it's really a serious question!
yeah, yeah, I know.....it's like a guy trying figure out which earlobe to get pierced...
thanks for your input!
