In North Carolina Ariana Iacono (14) went back to school with her mother and her nose ring, after her first suspension for a nose piercing ended. She was suspended again for five days because her nose ring violated the Johnston County school system's dress code. If she comes back to school on Sept. 21 with the nose stud, she'll face a 10-day suspension or referral to "alternative schooling." A similar situation went to the courts in 2002, when a woman was fired from her job at a Costco store over her eyebrow ring. The woman was also a member of the Church of Body Modification, but the courts eventually ruled that her religious beliefs did not require her to always wear her jewelry.
