got/had got

Good morning!

Could anyone tell me, please, which phrase sounds better?

1) How old were you when you got your nose pierced?

2) How old were you when you had got your nose pierced?

Thanks a lot

    The first is fine. I suppose the second is grammatical but I can't think of a context offhand in which it might be used.

    (You could also replace "got" with "had" in the first.)
