Is it normal for a new piercing to sink in slightly?

by Mikala

I got my nose pierced a few days ago & the stud has settled quite far into my nose, it's not sticking out like i thought it was supposed to? Is this okay? I'm not sure if the hole is too big for the stud & i'm scared it'll sink right through my nose & get stuck?

It is common during the healing process and if your nose stud is small. To avoid this we usually recommend round rings or bigger studs for piercing. You can change it after your piercing is healed. As for now be patient and follow the cleaning and care instruction from you piercer.
