Personally, I would make her take it out. If it had been my daughter, I would have made her take it out and give me the nose ring that was in there. No means no. If you let her keep it, she's going to look at it as, "Oh Mom let me keep this one when I got it done behind her back. Maybe I can get this done too and she won't do anything and I can keep it like the nose ring." (that is just an example)

That's why you take her to the doctor. Get it covered and put her on antibiotics. If she puts it back in... just make her take it back out again each and every time you see her. That ought to be a pretty big punishment.

Either take something away from her or ground her from doing something she enjoys. If my daughter did that her life wouldn't be worth living for a looooong time.

she will just put it back in... and if you take it out before its done healing it could get infected

Make her take it out and take her to the doctor to make sure it won't get infected since she did it herself. I'm not sure any other punishment is in order at the moment, but a LOT of talking on both sides might be a good idea.
