Actress Marisa Tomei had trouble getting into her costume on the set of her new movie, “The Wrestler,” because she had to be fitted with fake nipple piercings.
The actress plays a tattooed and pierced stripper in the upcoming film.
Darren Aronofsky admits the fake piercings caused an upset on set — because they took so long to attach.
He tells the New York Daily News, “The hardest part was fitting the fake nipple piercings on her.
“You’d be surprised at how long that took, but we were happy with how it came out.”
A MUM says her teenage daughter has missed weeks of schooling because she was banned from class for wearing a metal stud in her lip.
Amanda, 15, was sent home from Bournside School more than two weeks ago after having her upper lip pierced.
Her mum Joanne, from Surrey Avenue, Warden Hill, says the school’s actions mean Amanda’s education has suffered.
But the school, in Warden Hill Road, says parents are aware of the dress code and it’s Joanne’s choice not to send Amanda to school appropriately presented.
Joanne says she has tried to compromise with the school by offering to put a plaster over the piercing and replacing the metal stud with a clear one.
She said: “They sent her home. She tried to go back with a clear stud but they wouldn’t let her.
“It’s only a stud. I can’t see anything wrong with it. It’s not as if it effects her sitting in a classroom learning.
“I’ve tried to compromise but the school keeps saying it’s unacceptable and it won’t be tolerated. The clear stud is nowhere near as noticeable. I can’t see what all the fuss is about.
“Amanda is now in her third week of no school and I’m concerned.”
Bournside headteacher Alan Foulds said: “We’re clear and consistent about uniform expectations at Bournside. We publish them openly to every parent, who accepts and agrees to abide by them.
“The choice not to come to school is that of the parents because they know what’s expected of them and their child.
“Ignoring that is of concern and naturally she will be falling behind.
“Parents must understand our expectations and we have outlined this to them.
“We hope to see her return to Bournside shortly. This is an unusual and isolated incident.”
Gloucestershire County Council cabinet member for schools Coun Joan Nash, said: “It’s up to schools to impose rules on uniform but it’s important that children and young people are in school.”
This photo shows the earlobe of a 21 year old woman who presented to a clinic with a growing hard red nodule that was located where she had her ear pierced 5 years ago. She removed the earring after a few years because it never healed and was always inflamed.
A biopsy was done of the nodule and pathology showed a skin reaction with epithelioid histiocytes surrounded by a dense infiltrate of lymphocytes.
Allergic patch testing was done and it showed a positive reaction to nickel and a strong reaction to palladium. The skin reaction to palladium (done on her back) persisted for months and was not relieved with strong corticosteroid cream.
The reaction on her skin finally disappeared after injecting it with corticosteroids. The ear lesion required surgical excision.
Allergies to metals are common and any piercing that does not heal may be an allergic reaction to one of the metals or alloys used in the metal. Similar cases have occurred with nickel, gold and platinum from ear piercings.
