Types of Nose Piercings

Nose piercing has been a part of Indian culture for many centuries now, and has slowly gained popularity over the last two decades in western countries too. It has now become a part of mainstream culture now and is now the second most popular piercing in the world after ear piercing especially among teens and young adults.

The nose is cartilage, so this tissue is tougher to pierce and can be more problematic to heal compared to ear lobes, which are soft tissue. Noses allow for a few different variations in piercing.

Nostril piercing

It is the most common form of nose piercing. The piercing is usually done near the rim of the nostril and could either be on the left side or the side of the nose. The side of the nose that is pierced depends on the cultural significance of the person getting the piercing or could also be just a preference based on which side looks better. A ring or stud is best for starting but make sure the jewelry is not too tight to the nose if it is a stud. That can lead to healing problems.

Septum piercing

This piercing is placed on the cartilage that separates the chambers of the nose also known as the septum. This piercing is also nicknamed the “bull ring” piercing as you sometimes see cattle with this style of nostril piercing. This piercing is more common in tribal peoples. Reasons for this piercing were to imitate totem animals, to bring luck and to keep evil spirits from entering the body by coming in through the nose. It can be a bit sensitive to pierce, or if the ring gets snagged. This is the only type of nose piercing that can be made completely and truly invisible.

Bridge piercing

It is a piercing placed horizontally through the fleshy part lining up between the eyes above or at nose level on the surface of the bridge of the nose,. The placement of this piercing is not always easy, because it should be such that it should not appear crooked or bent and must not restrict the field of vision of the wearer. It is also called an ‘Erl’ piercing named after the first man to get it done. This piercing can be very hard to heal and carries a high potential for rejection or healing out.

There are a few questions you can to ask the piercer before getting the piercing to ensure a safe experience. Check how the nose jewellery you have chosen works and how it goes n and out of your nose. This will be very helpful when you want to change it in the future. Ask about piercing aftercare products and procedure especially that which must be followed during rigorous activities and medical conditions like cold and allergies.

Importance of Sterilization of Piercing Tools

Sterilization is all-important in ear piercings- the piercing area must be sterile, the piercer’s hands must be sterile, the tools used must be sterile, and the piercing needle must be sterile.

The human body reacts to inclusion of any foreign object and may initially try to repel it. This manifests itself in the form of allergies and infections, which are the two of the biggest concerns faced by us during piercings.  Allergies are caused by sensitivity to certain metals like nickel and are easily avoidable. Use of jewellery and piercing instruments which are made of hypoallergenic metals prevents any allergic reactions. Infections on the other hand are a little trickier and proper care is required before, during and after the piercing to successfully avoid it.

As we have discussed in our earlier post choosing a safe and trusted studio which is hygienic is the first step towards an infection free piercing experience.  Your chosen studio must not only be hygienic but it is also necessary that they must sterilize all the equipment they use or reuse during piercing. Check out their sterilization procedure and notice if they strictly adhere to it. All good piercing studios must have an autoclave where they sterilize all their reusable piercing equipment between each piercing.

It is essential to clean all tools before sterilization as unclean tools cannot be sterilized effectively. The person performing the procedure must wear clean disposable gloves the entire time. Instruments must be placed in water, disinfectant or detergent immediately after every use, to prevent drying of client material and to make cleaning more easy and effective. This cleaning can be done either through scrubbing with soap or preferably with a mechanical device like a covered ultrasonic cleaner. There are many methods used for sterilization but not all of them are as effective. The autoclave which sterilizes through heat and pressure is considered the most ideal method of sterilization when it comes to piercing equipment.  Any instrument that can withstand heat must be sterilized through autoclaving. There are many other methods too like flaming, boiling, bleaching, rubbing alcohol but they are not sufficient or effective enough especially when it comes to piercing equipment.

These sterilized instruments must not be touched until your piercing begins, and then only by your piercer when he has safely cleaned and gloved his hands, just as a surgeon would. The piercer should wash his hands and wrists with an antibacterial liquid soap and dry them before donning disposable gloves.

If you are not sure if the studio is following the proper sterilization techniques or if they are practicing it regularly, then avoid using non disposable guns as they cannot be sterilized. The safest bet in such situation is to use disposable piercing guns such as single use pre-sterilized cartridges by Studex.

Care for New Piercings

Healing time varies from person to person as it depends on their body’s normal healing rate and also depends on the placement of the piercing.. They may take anywhere between 6 weeks to a year to completely heal. The piercing must be taken care of during the entire duration of the healing process to avoid infection and facilitate a smooth healing process.

Clean the piercing with anti-bacterial soap three times a day. For a tongue piercing, rinse your mouth with Listerine each time you eat. Sucking on ice also helps with the pains and swelling.

Don’t touch your piercing too often to avoid infecting it. Every time you touch it make sure you wash your hands thoroughly with an antibacterial handwash. Constant fiddling will also prolong the healing time.

Use a specialized after piercing lotion twice a day to your piercings. Twist or rotate your jewellery after applying the lotion. This action allows the antibacterial agents to penetrate the piercing. Rotating your piercing at least twice a day also ensures that the skin does not heal stuck to the jewellery. Don’t use alcohol or peroxide to clean the area as those will dry out the skin. They help kill germs but also end up killing the white blood cells required for healing and may cause scar tissue.

Cover your ear piercing with a tissue or cloth when using hair products or perfume. Make sure to rinse with water immediately if any product gets into the piercing. Also clean your telephone or any other object that comes in contact with the piercing, with a disinfectant after each use.

Wear loose-fitting clothes or belts for naval piercings and try not to sleep on your stomach, as air circulation is good for healing. Frequently replace your bedding. Try and wear cotton or other soft fabrics, because these will irritate your skin less. If you know you are going to have to wear some kind of itchy clothing, then cover the piercing till you change your clothes. Make sure to wear clothes, scarves or hats that do not snag on your piercing.

Consume a nutritionally rich diet and additionally take a multivitamin that includes zinc and vitamin C. This will help the body fight off infection and promote healing.

Wait at least 3 months before changing your jewelry in order to give it proper time to heal. Jewelry should be continuously worn for 4 to 6 months after that or the piercing can close up.

If the piercing is hurting you badly, or looks infected, then it probably is, and you should go have it checked out before it gets worse. Seek immediate medical attention if you experience throbbing pain, prolonged swelling, prolonged redness or a burning sensation.

Piercings often feel healed when they aren’t because they heal from the outside in. So the aftercare regime must be followed for the full length of the time recommended.
