Nostril Piercings, more commonly called Nose Piercings, can suit most people and are the most popular piercing placement after the ears. The placement will be assessed by your piercer and if you plan to wear a hoop after the piercing heals completely, it needs to be taken to account.
Your piercer will mark the placement that best compliments your anatomy and allows for a good fit of a hoop in the future, if you wish to.
As always, please carefully review the marked placement before approving it.
There are many types of Nose Piercings. You can get double or even triple nostrils, high nostrils, paired nostrils etc.
We would have to use a straight labret bar stud for the piercings, for your safety, as they are the best for healing. Do not worry, we have countless gorgeous designs and little sparkly studs!
Hoops as initial jewellery on the Nostril are not recommended as we find that they interfere majorly with the healing process.
Tight hoops are totally suitable and are in fact dangerous. This dainty little hugging hoop you are dreaming of needs patience.
Swapping for a hoop early will irritate and might damage your piercing.
As is the case with all our piercings, we would perform a Nostril Piercing with sterile single-use ultra sharp, tri-beveled Needle Blades. They are the highest standard in the Body Piercing industry, as they cause minimal trauma, avoid tissue drag and allow for smooth jewellery insertion. Your new piercing deserves the best it can get, and we have all the necessary expertise, tools, jewellery and experience to ensure that.
Healing would take on average six to twelve months, but each person heals differently.
Please, carefully read and follow our Aftercare Instructions and take very good care of your piercing to avoid any complications. We are with you for the entire healing journey, with free checkups and advice along the way.
