Looking for pictures of nose piercings? Arriving at the decision to pierce your nose is a big deal! It's exciting to look at pictures on the internet at other people's nose piercings in order to get an idea of just what you want to do. But there's a lot to think about.
There are different types of piercings... various types of nose jewelry... 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!
No doubt you have gone to Google or Yahoo! or Bing (or whatever) to look at images of piercings. What style looks right for you? How do you know whether a nose ring that looks great on one person will properly accentuate your features?
It's true that the internet is a wide-open resource for viewing examples of nose piercings. You can also look at photos in our nose piercings gallery or the online store of this web site to view many examples of beautiful nose piercing jewelry. We've got some key points for you to keep in mind while you ponder all those pictures and make your final decision:
Since you seen enough pictures of nose piercings and you have finally decided on this procedure, the first thing to choose is the metal your initial nose jewelry will be made from. Some metals elicit an unpleasant reaction from the skin. Doctors refer to these general skin allergies as contact dermatitis.
More people are sensitive to nickel than to any other metal, and cobalt comes in second. These two metals are used as fillers for many other metals, including copper, brass, sterling silver, and even gold. Only poison ivy causes more allergic reactions than metals!
Why is this important? Imagen this while you're looking at all those pictures of nose piercings: Imagine red splotches leading out from your piercing jewelry. Imagine itchy bumps that you scratch, which then get red and even begin to ooze.
Your skin can even develop redness if the metal sits too close to the skin, trapping liquids or soap residue from washing your face or even from your natural sweat. Remember that even though the opening in your skin from the piercing is minuscule, it still puts your raw skin in contact with the metal.
Go For Pure Gold
You can avoid that skin irritation that show up on many pictures of nose piercings by choose a quality, pure metal such as 22k gold for your initial piercing. It's even better than 14k or 18k, because the purer the gold, the less nickel it contains, and you are less likely to develop a raging allergic reaction! You should ask your piercing professional if he is using a surgical steel needle to do the job, because people have even developed reactions to the piercing equipment.
While you browse through pictures, take a look at keloid scars associated with piercing. You will become motivated to do whatever it takes to avoid them! Keloids are scars that grow beyond the boundaries of the initial wound (in this case, from the piercing). People who develop them complain of a painful burning sensation-not to mention the unsightly scar.
Keloids do tend to run in families, so give a second thought to nose piercing if people in your family have developed them. And they are also more common among darker-skinned people. But you can increase your chances for better healing if you eat plenty of collagen-rich foods, such as soy products or dark green leafy vegetables. Tomatoes and red peppers contain collagen-boosting lycopenes. You can also eat salmon, tuna, and nuts-foods that are rich in omega acids. Olives (black or green), cucumbers, and celery will also help.
Professional Piercing is Better
Besides looking at more pictures of nose piercings and thinking of keloid problems, you can avoid simple scars if you have your piercing done properly. Never let someone pierce your nose with a gun! You cannot avoid that minuscule splash of blood that hits your skin when the gun shoots that stud through, and you don't want germs from the last gazillion people who were pierced to get into your open skin. Plus, think about the shooting action of the gun, ripping your skin to make way for the stud and then pressing it in tightly so that there is no breathing room. Does that sound like something that will heal quickly and cleanly?
We display pictures of nose piercings in our store that will help you choose beautiful, high quality nose jewelry. We are proud to advocate the 22k gold selections for optimal healing, comfort, and appearance. You'll have fun selecting just the right size ring or stud to match your nose. But above all else, we want you to make safe choices that will look great during and after the healing period.
And that's a picture you'll want to show everyone!

All of the contents on this site have been made in my own spare time. I also pay for the domain name nose-piercings.com out of my own pocket and write and maintain the documentation and web pages on this site. All of this takes up a considerable amount of my time.
I provide all of this for free, because at the end of the day, it's nice to think that there are people out there who find this stuff useful. It is always reassuring to receive emails from people to thank me for my work, and it is mainly this which keeps me going. However, the fact is that all of the stuff here costs a significant amount of my spare time and a little bit of my own money, so any donations (no matter how small) are very much appreciated.
