Types of Nose Piercings

Nose piercing came into being as a way to wear accessories and adorn one’s body for decorative purposes. But today nose jewelry has developed into a much more meaningful and artistic form. Nose rings are not just used for fashion anymore. They can represent many things such as religious faith, class, profession, name, etc. In addition, they have become increasingly popular with women, who no longer feel that their nose is somehow “lesser” than the rest of their facial features. Nose piercing has its share of side effects, however.

The two most common nose piercing side effects are pain and infection. Pain occurs from the individual’s tooth or nose piercing during the healing process and can be a result of irritation caused by either the jewelry or the healing materials placed inside it. These side effects can often be avoided by carefully choosing the right jewelry and materials, as well as by following the directions on how to exactly care for it once it has been pierced. In some cases, infections can take place if the individual does not follow the proper procedures for cleaning and healing after the fact. If one is prone to infections or does not care for his/her body properly after a piercing, then nose jewelry can be at risk for causing infections. Get more info about PiercingShop.

Another common nose piercing style is known as nostril piercings. Nerve piercings refer to the individual’s nostrils being pierced. As opposed to the other types of nose piercing, nostril piercings are generally done through an incision in the nostril, with the use of a thin barbell shaped titanium screw. This allows for a more flexible placement of jewelry because there are no restrictions as to where the jewelry can and cannot go. However, both the gold and silver styles of nose studs can cause the same problems as other styles; namely poor healing, infection, and unsightly scarring.
