Read This Before Getting A Nose Piercing

So you're considering getting your nose pierced? Here are some key things to expect as you welcome your new piercing. There are many types of nose piercings. Below is a diagram of the various different options. Picking the right nose piercing for you depends on different factors as intricate as your anatomy or as simple as which one you feel makes you wanna take the most selfies!

Whichever you decide, it is important you prepare to care for your piercing with love and patience as it progresses through the healing period. Your professional, trusted piercer passes the baton to you with piercing care after they've cleaned up your new piercing and sent you on your way. The average healing time for nose piercings is 2 to 4 months. Keep in mind everyone heals differently, and that the inside typically takes longer healing than the outside so do not quickly change your jewelry judging solely from the appearance of the outside. 

Cleaning your piercing at least twice a day and leaving your piercing alone the rest of the day as much as you can will serve to your benefit in the end! Let's talk about all the different styles of nose jewelry you are able to enjoy when you've finally reached the finish line and healing is over!

Over time, you'll begin to learn what you prefer to rock on your nose: nose screws, straights, L bends, hoops, and more. Whichever you choose, be sure to make sure you invest in quality. Among the many different metals nose studs out there are made of, the top two that are the most body friendly are titanium and 316L surgical steel. Titanium is known to be hypoallergenic, and resistant to discoloration from water. 316L surgical steel, a grade of stainless steel sometimes found in medical instruments to conduct surgeries (hence the name). Throughout our catalogue you will come across body jewelry made of either of these metals.
