Nose and ear piercing is a little bit prestigeous for the young girls in our country, Bangladesh. The young girls, who have pierced nose and ears, seem to be in higher position than others. In Bangladesh, there were not many piercing centre even 15 years ago. Now, almost in every beauty parlour, girls can do piercing safely.
These two girls are from a slum, waiting in a queue to buy food in cheaper rate. They saw me shooting people in the queue and when I came near to them, the younger one told me shyfully to take a photo. I saw their noses were recently pierced. They looked proud when I asked about it. They did it home with hot sewing needle and now keeping sewing threads in the hole until it become permanent.
