The First Known Pierced Nose...
Have you heard of Lakshmi? She's the Hindu goddess of wisdom, fortune, prosperity, courage, generosity and fertility. She was beautiful and graceful, with four arms, almost always holding lotuses - and her nose is pierced.
Taking their cue from her, Indian women were the first to incorporate nose piercings within their culture. Because the left side of the nose was associated with the reproductive organs according to the teachings of Ayurvedic yogis, an Indian bride would often have her left nostril pierced on the night before her wedding.
For men, the practice began among Middle Eastern nomads and other tribes. It signified their manliness, wealth, and power.
