Woman Piercing Her Nose

The woman pierced her body parts

Shot in the city of Malda, India.

A woman I met during I walked around the streets looked straight at me. I saw a big pierce on her nose.

I had thought why women in India pierced their nose only on the left nostril. The reason was that it was believed the left nostril was closely connected with the female genitals and to pierce on it was good to relieve the painful period and others.
