Since there is no response to my question from the members, let me give some explantion on the matter. Nostril piercing is a body piercing practice often associated with India. In Northern India the outside of the left and in Southern India the outside of the right nostril is the preferred position of the piercing as this is supposed to make childbirth easier. This is because Ayurvedic medicine associates this location with the female reproductive organs. In India piercings were regarded as a mark of beauty and social standing as well as a Hindu s honor to Parvathi the goddess of marriage in the 16th century. Nose piercing is still popular in India.
