Do Nose Piercing Hurt

nose piercing needle

Each person has her own ability or inability to tolerate pain. Just about anybody who has had her nose pierced will tell you that there is some momentary pain from piercing.

Because so many people say that the pain passes quickly, then you should feel confident that it's true!


A professional piercer must undergo comprehensive training to qualify for his job. It is not like the mall employee with the piercing gun who learns in a matter of one to two weeks. Your qualified piercing professional learns about the vessels and nerves of the human body.

He/She knows where there are sensitive bundles of nerves to avoid on your nose. So the answer to the question "do nose piercings hurt" depends on knowing exactly where to pierce. Since most professionals can perform piercings just about anywhere on the body, they study the circulatory and nervous system for several years. We say, bring on the needle!

Nose Piercing Problems and Solutions

Nose Piercing Problems Caused by Allergies or Alike

Certainly, the piercing professional should ask you if you're allergic to anything-food, drugs, or metals. But most people aren't aware of any existing allergy. If you've never before placed any type of metal against your exposed skin tissues, you would have no reason to know! And, as mentioned above, most people are unaware of just which metals serve as ingredients in the piece of jewelry that is being inserted.

Nose Piercing Care and You

Watch for Bacterial Infections

Whenever a person has any incision into his skin -whether it's a pinprick or a surgical incision- the opening in his skin presents a doorway for bacteria to enter the body. How will you know if you develop an infection, despite of your nose piercing care? There are specific symptoms to watch for:

  • Increased pain is one of the earliest symptoms, even before you can observe other symptoms.
  • Erythema, or redness of the skin around the piercing, is a telltale sign.
  • Discharge beyond the ordinary oozing is symptomatic, especially if it increases or thickens.
  • Discharge of uninfected piercings might be clear with a very slight tinge of blood. Infection has probably set in if it becomes green, gray, or yellow. You might even notice a foul odor.
  • The pierced area might begin to feel warmer than the surrounding skin. If you develop a fever, that's a certain indication.

Nose Piercing Care - Don't Get It Wrong

Nose Piercing Healing

nose piercer

A sea-salt solution is a good idea while your piercing heals even if there is no infection. It provides a good way to remove the crusts that accumulate around the piercing or on the jewelry. It will draw impurities from your skin. Many people also say it feels comfortable and relieves itching during their nose piercing healing process!

If you have chosen a nostril screw as your first jewelry at the time of the piercing, take extra care that it doesn't get caught in your clothing or on your towel.

Avoid swimming while your piercing heals, but if you must go then cover it with a water-proof wound bandage. Brands like Tegaderm and Nexcare offer small bandages that will protect your piercing from chlorinated pool water.

Nose Piercing Healing Tips

Nose Piercing Infection

Treatment and Care

Prevention is the best cure; that's a truism that applies to any part of your body. That being said, you can protect your piercing by taking the following simple precautions:

  • Never touch your piercing if you haven't washed your hands first.
  • Determine if you are having an allergic reaction to the jewelry. If the metal doesn't suit your skin, remove it.

  • To keep the piercing clean, apply a thin coat of antiseptic ointment to the area-before sleep and before you go out.
  • If you notice pus, wait until the drainage slows down. Then you can move the piercing just a little, once every week. If you move it more often then you will aggravate the nose piercing infection.
  • If you're washing or wiping your face, avoid tugging on your nose jewelry.
