Sounds like a religion to me, I mean c’mon, why not? I’d imagine Halloween would be a big holiday for this gal’s faith.
NC teen says pierced nose is part of her faith

CLAYTON, N.C. (AP) – A North Carolina school is disputing a student’s claim that body piercings are next to godliness.
WTVD reported Friday that Clayton High School has suspended freshman Ariana Iacono (eye-uh-KOHN’-oh) for wearing a stud in her nose, which is against school policy.
But Iacono says it’s how she practices her faith.
Iacono and her mother are members of a small group called the Church of Body Modification.
Church minister Richard Ivey says its members believe that changes to the body can bring about inner harmony.
School officials declined to discuss the case.
The Iaconos say they’ve contacted the American Civil Liberties Union for help.
