Honestly I don't think NAPS cares if you get them pierced. I think the issue would be if you could wear them enough to ensure they heal properly. I think you would probably be fine as you can wear small brushed gold studs in pretty much every uniform. The challenge would be in PT gear when doing really physical activity and risk injury. Not sure if you are an athlete and plan to play any sports as that would be an issue for things like soccer or basketball. Would recommend to either do now and have them healed by report time for NAPS or do over xmas.
