Type of Nose Piercing Jewlery

While technically you can use any most kinds of piercing jewelry in a nostril piercing, it’s best to stick to the traditional forms of nostril jewelry because, well, they’re created for your nose! They don’t bulk up the inside of your nose so that it’s still easy to breath like some jewelry with large balls might, they don’t allow nostril gunk to stick to the piercing in a way that may make it uncomfortable or irritable to remove, and they have so many varieties.

Traditional Hoop

A traditional nostril hoop differs from a circular barbell or a captive bead ring as it’s a long seamless rounded bar with a simple metal plaque that when the entire hoop is threaded through the nose sits on the inside edge, holding it in place. 

When first getting a nose piercing it is not advised to begin with a hoop as your starter jewelry. Hoops can easily spread bacteria into a newly pierced wound if you change positions on the curved bar, allowing anything that pressed against the open side to slide in direct contact with the wound.

Types of Nose Piercings

Nose piercings are extremely popular in society today and can be traced back to the Middle East over 4,000 years ago. The African cultures still use rings in the nose to signify marriage and security for the wife, should the husband die. In more recent society, we note that the Indian culture tends to don the nostril piercing on the left side. As hippies in the 1960’s traveled to India and returned home, they brought a piece of their culture back with them. The punk rock generation then adopted this piercing and it has moved all the way to the mainstream population.

There are several types of nose piercings that can be selected. Consider what type of piercing you would like to obtain and Side Nose Ring Hoopwhat type of jewelry you would like to use for that piercing. You could also consider a captive bead ring or a stud in this location.

Then there is the septum piercing that has become extremely popular and less of an outcast piercing. This piercing looks great with a captive bead ring or a circular barbell. Make sure your piercer is experienced and knows where the septum cartilage ends, so they pierce in the proper position. This piercing is also a great choice, because you can flip the ring up into the nasal cavity to hide the piercing if you are in a professional setting.

A newer trend to consider is the bridge piercing. This piercing is an excellent choice if you are into a surface piercing. A nice circular barbell is the best option for this particular location. This piercing can be one that can migrate, so ensure that it watched and that if it does start to migrate that the jewelry is removed and allowed to heal.

Want something a little rarer? Then look no further, you have found the vertical tip piercing. This is basically a curved barbell placed at the tip of the nose and just under the tip of your nose. A curved barbell is the best option for this piercing and the only one that really fits.

If you are looking for something that is intense, consider the nasallang. This may appear to be two nostril piercings; however, it is actually three piercings as the septum is also pierced with an extra, long straight barbell piercing. This is one of those piercings that separates you from the rest.

Regardless of the nasal piercing that you are interested in, research it well and find the best nose ring jewelry for the particular piercing location and your own unique style. This part of the body has many options available for piercing and the choices are growing.
