Trending Best Sellers

Bridge piercings is another type of facial piercing also known as “Erl or Earl Piarcing” after its first recipient Erl van Aken. Pierced through the skin on the bridge of the nose, directly between the eyes. Piercing a nose bridge is riskier because it is surface piercing, which means that it is carried out on a flat surface, and does not have the skin to hold a piercing, like the earlobe or the tongue would have.


Surface piercing is much more complicated as compared to normal piercing, and the chances of rejection are very high. A bridge piercing is quite complex, and a properly done a piercing should last up to a few months to several years. The most common areas for this type piercing are between the sides of the nose, or on the side of the face, etc. Usually, surface piercing requires the person to have additional skin on the area to be pierced and can be quite painful when compared to other forms of piercing, ear, lip, etc.

If you’re wearing spectacles, you may want to avoid heading in for this form of piercing. As it is, the spectacles rub against the nose bridge and any piercing on that particular area will only serve to irritate the skin further.

Make sure you do the required online research before opting for this form of piercing. And double check with your physician to ensure that you’ve no infection to worry about.

Common, Bridge piercings jewelries are straight barbells, although curved barbells and bars are used are as alternatives. It is possible to wear captive bead ring once the piercing as healed.
