I am not one to talk a youth out of doing something. If Hurricane Hattie wants a nose ring (stud, bar or actual ring?) then she can get nose ring. I don't care what she, or anyone else, does with their body as long as they do it responsibly.
Honestly, I don't know why Brutus cares what a kid who's not even his does with her life. I'm guessing it's because Hattie just annoys him or maybe it's because women with nose rings never talk to him.
