Nose (?)

This astonishingly beautiful lithograph by Eduard Thony (add to dots on top of the o) appeared in "Simplicissimus" in 1901. The Sailor says: "Girls, don't bite the old geezer in the nose or you'l be pissed for a week."...I am sure that in the original version he wasn't talking about biting the nose but biting something else!
("Chicas, no le muerdan la nariz al viejo o la borrachera les va a durar una semana!")
