Nose piercings? Some people think for years about getting their nose pierced. Others just go out one day and do it!
Whether you want to explore historical customs related to facial piercings or if you just like the idea of decorating your face, this is where you'll learn everything you need to know before you take the big step.
Have you heard of Lakshmi? She's the Hindu goddess of wisdom, fortune, prosperity, courage, generosity and fertility. She was beautiful and graceful, with four arms, almost always holding lotuses - and her nose is pierced.
Taking their cue from her, Indian women were the first to incorporate nose piercings within their culture. Because the left side of the nose was associated with the reproductive organs according to the teachings of Ayurvedic yogis, an Indian bride would often have her left nostril pierced on the night before her wedding.
For men, the practice began among Middle Eastern nomads and other tribes. It signified their manliness, wealth, and power.
Now that you know some of the history of nose piercing, let's go over what you can find on our site: You will learn about having your nostril, your septum, or the bridge of your nose pierced. You will discover bridge piercing, nose rings, different types of jewelry, nose piercing prices and nose piercing aftercare tips.
Some specialists recommend removing the stud or ring each day and cleaning it. Others say to leave it in place but use cotton balls moistened in salt water on either side of the piercing, to cleanse the area and also to remove the hard, crusty stuff that accumulates on the healing part and on the jewelry. Which way is right for you?
You'll also learn about what to avoid when you heal from a new piercing and what you can do to avoid the piercing hole to close if you remove the jewelry.
Not only do we explain what chemicals you can and cannot use near a newly pierced area, we also talk about makeup, facial cleansers, lotions, and similar products.
If you're getting your nose pierced, you're going to face some hiccups along the way...
Nose Piercing FAQ: I got my nose pierced with a piercing gun. I had no idea that only a piercing needle should be used! Have I done any damage? What should I watch for?
Read the answers
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!
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.
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:

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:
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.
Also known as bull rings, many people think septum piercings are much more dramatic and daring. People choose them to express either cultural traditions or their own individuality. Getting one is a little more uncomfortable and they take a bit longer to heal.
They might be worried about infection!
Your parents might be worried about developing a nasal piercing infection. You want to give you some reassurance: First, what you believe is an infection might be nothing more than the normal healing process. And second, if you do get an infection, it will not necessarily be harmful to you.
There are different types of piercings... various types of nose rings... worries about pain and infection... and these are the things you consider once you've already convinced your family or social support network that a piercing is right for you!
Are you ready to pierce your nose? Good, because it's glam, cool and sexy, and it's a time-honored traditional way to adorn or accent your facial features. You can have your nostril or septum pierced, and there are those who go for piercing the bridge! You're going to find that your piercing gives you a mark of individuality and lets you express yourself.
