    So, I am finally going to get my nose pierced after YEARS of saying I want to, and was wondering if anyone has had a piercing done with bioflex jewellery from the start? If so, any preference over "metal" jewellery?

    Going to quiz the studio to within an inch of it's life of course, but thought I'd get some opinions here first :-)

    Thanks guys

    P.S. Having just watched a YouTube vid of nose piercing I now feel a little sick LOL!

      I had my nose pierced about 15 years ago. I did make my eyes water! lol

    Plastics are not good starter jewelry as the healing surfaces can stick to the plastic, and it often becomes discolored from being involved in the healing process as well.

    I've been a heavily pierced person for the last 25 years and no reputable piercer I've ever met would put plastic in a brand-new piercing.

      I was going to say the same thing, relache, having learned this recently while researching for my tatt hub.

      I envy those of you who can tolerate piercings.  I can't.  Period.  About once a decade, I make the mistake of thinking maybe I've outgrown my allergy to ANYTHING stuck into my skin, but, alas, I only end up with an infection.

      My ears are pierced, and I will infrequently wear a pair of earrings for an hour or so (like for a photo, or a really fancy evening out donned in a ballgown...), but otherwise, even my lobes (pierced more than 30 years ago) are too sensitive.

      About 4 years ago, I got my belly button pierced.  That was BAD!!!

      Back to the OP:  I wonder if you (HWP) should consider a different studio even THEY are the ones who gave you the option to go with bioflex first?

        Oh, no nothing to do with the studio - just my random mind wonderings as I decide what sort of jewellery to go for :-)

        I did wonder if it was a good idea, and it seems that some people have it done, but then if you search the internet hard enough you can find anything really LOL

      Relache, is teflon a plastic? It certainly looks and feels like it.
      I had my labret pierced, and the used material was teflon. One day after about a year, I took it out for a few hours, and the hole closed up.
      The other piercings I've had done, including nose, have never done this, but I've only ever had titanium in those.
      Could it be the material that made the difference, or just the skin on the particular part of the anatomy?

    I have never, ever, ever seen any human being who looked better for having had an extra hole drilled in their nose. If some folks are just into self-mutilation for whatever reason that's up to them, but it is certainly not attractive.

    Wow! I wonder how he gets through airport security? Excuse me sir, can you please remove your face for a moment?

      oh PMSL!! Seriously though, that is all kinds of strange. I just want a nice little stud, and I'm sure that will be painful enough (although my belly button didn't hurt at all when I had it done), how people deal with the pain of stretching I don't know.

      I have 30 body piercings and have no problems with airport metal detectors.

    Not everyone goes to extremes like that! (Although that's his choice of course.) I'm 50 this year and a grandmother - certainly not into self-mutilation... I think my nose piercing is discreet - and have been told it looks attractive, even by people who don't usually like piercings! It just adds a little twinkle lol

    I'm not big on face piercing...

    but I have found some body piercings on others to be rather fun

    NC - I can't see having anything other than ears pierced.  I just don't see the point in it.  Ears are for an accessory. But, noses?  Eyebrows?  Tongues?  Bridge of nose?  Lips?  Unseen places?  I just don't get it.  I used to think it was a cry for attention, maybe I still think that...but it's far too common now to even think about it.  I don't see it as a fashion statement, more of body mutilation.  Why would anyone do that to themselves?  (I feel the same for a body covered in tattoos...although not for one here and there)

      I don't get how you consider ear piercing to be for decoration but anywhere else not to be? Where does it say that ears are for accessories (not meaning to be rude, just curious!) but no-where else on the body is? Surely any addition of jewellery to the body is decoration whether it's for personal or public viewing?

      I for one am getting my nose pierced for personal reasons and because I think it looks lovely, just as CrystalStarWoman demonstrates so perfectly :-)

        I'm guessing it's because it's what I grew up with.  I don't like the looks of body piercings either.  But - it's not my choice if someone else does it, now is it?  I just don't understand how body piercings are supposed to be decorative.  Ears I can understand.  (is old-fashioned a more correct term for me? lol)

        And, like I said, body piercings are far too common nowadays to even think about it.  I'm used to seeing it, but that doesn't mean I have to agree with it, it doesn't mean I can't have an opinion about it, it doesn't mean I have to like it or want it.  All it means is, I'm used to seeing it and am not bothered by it like I once was.  I'll admit I used to have negative thoughts about someone who would do body piercings, but I've grown up since then. big_smile

    Hey that's cool, I'm just interested in people's opinions and why people have particular beliefs etc. LOL @ old fashioned, one of my aunts is very much of the opinion that if you were meant to wear earrings you would have been born with holes in your ear lobes and we used to tease her about it something rotten when we were kids (none of us got our ears pierced until we were in our teens though). I hate seeing young kids with piercings, I have had 3 piercings done that I have subsequently taken out, no regrets, I wanted them and then once I had them changed my mind. I think teenagers are under far too much pressure to go in for these things - 13 yr olds with navel piercings - WTF - I was 29 when I had mine done (and my mum would still kill me if she found out LOL!).

      hehehehe  reminds me of something my mom used to say when I first got my ears double pierced........."You don't need another hole in your head!"  (and she's the one who pierced my ears with a needle and a potato when I was 4!! - or so she said...hmm )

      13 year olds with navel piercings?  Crazy!!  Not in my house or under my watch!  Nope, any of my kids want to do something 'permanent' or even 'semi-permanent' like that has to wait until they're responsible for themselves.  I'm not taking the responsibility of allowing them to do something they might regret after 10-15-20-25 years or so.  Uh-uh.  No way.  No how. 

      The only thing I've relaxed on is one of my sons wanted to get his ear pierced, only one ear.  I finally said it was okay, after he reached 13, and by then he changed his mind!  (I think he was about 11 when he brought it up - a bunch of guys at school were getting their ears pierced at the time)

    yikes, the only time I've heard of Teflon is in relation to non-stick cookware!!  Never heard of Teflon jewellery, I suppose the non-stick-ness would mean it would move easily? 

    Relache - I'd love to know about this too.....intrigued!
