What size gauge they use for nose piercing
I just had my nose pierced about a week ago and so far so good..I am already looking for a new ring so after my healing time I can change it..I just wasn't sure on what size gauge to get, since I'm not sure of which they used for the piercing..I want a small diamond, something very discrete but, everything I have found sits high on the nose..Any recommendations on the gauge or places to look for what I'm wanting? Thanks
This could be hard to answer. The usual starting gauge 18 to 20 gauge, but they could be smaller if you asked the piercer to do so.
My advice would be to go to the piercer and ask him, or get a 18 or a 20 gauge and test it. Like I said most people start at that area, and the difference between the two isn't real that signicant so it wouldnt tear the hole beyond a minor sting.
Hope that helps.
I've heard of people starting with anything from 20g to 16g. Be careful of starting out with something that is a stud, as very small ones can often get pulled down into the healing piercing, which is why I recommend that people start out with a ring which allows for better cleaning and the size changes that come with any swelling during the healing period.
