I'm pretty sure I've never had to express a formal position on nipple rings. I personally find them a pain to put in every morning, but that's just me. I have sensitive skin. But this lady was on Fox 4 a second ago complaining about airport officials making her remove her areola jewelry. (She's the lady in black. The woman in pink is a LA lawyer who will kill her mother to get in front of a camera.)
Ma'am, let me say this in the kindest of terms, you do not need to have anything to do with nipple rings. Use this as a learning experience. Give 'em up.
