Types of body jewelry for nose piercing

There are two types of body jewelry for nose piercing:

- nose screw

- nose stud

Principally they differ only by the way of fastening. “Nose stud” has a ball in shape of a small drop on one end, which holds jewelry on its spot and “nose screw” is curl, which tightly and securely holds jewelry in its spot.

Advantage of a “nose stud” is that it may be easily inserted and taken out. However, a piercing should not be of a bigger diameter than the diameter of jewelry (usually it is 1mm).

Advantage of a “ nose screw” is that it holds up securely in any piercing and does not turn around, which is very important if jewelry does not have a round form.

Body jewelry for nose piercing usually is made of surgical steal, silver or gold.

The most popular spot for nose piercing is one of nostrils. It is possible to locate piercing in any spot along the whole length of the nostril. Owner chooses a piercing spot him/her self.

Nose piercing types

- Septum piercing. This piercing is known as the most painful among all piercings on the face. Anastasia would not help in this case, since cartilage’s septa would not freeze totally. Such nose puncture is technically complicated and you should not do it at home. Jewelry in a shape of hooves or rings is often used with septa piercing.

- Bridge piercing is the piercing in the bridge of the nose area. There are horizontal and vertical punctures. Bar is jewelry for this type of piercing.

- Tip of the nose piercing is done from inside of the upper part of a nostril toward the tip of the nose.

- Austin Bar piercing is a piercing of the tip of the nose horizontally. Cartilage’s septum is not touched with this type of piercing.

- Septril piercing - lower side of nose’s tip is punctured. It is done on the centre through the wider piercing of septum in direction toward the lower edge of the nose.
