Nose's wing piercing is quite popular among teenagers, girls and women and is on the first place among other types of nose piercing. This kind of piercing is very simple in performance and does not cause any problems for a piercing master. Piercer does a piercing of nose's wing and inserts body jewelry, which looks like a special screw. From the outside this screw is in a shape of a metallic ball or stone and from the other side is a special hook meant for secure fixation. Healing of the piercing flows quite fast in about two weeks. However, the channel itself forms more than month. All what is required of you is thorough and careful care of the wound.

If you want to replace a nose ring, then surely do it on the exit; otherwise, you may accidentally inhale it.

Another type of nose piercing is the septum piercing. It may be recognized as the most painful one among all piercings, which are performed on a face. Anastasia would not help, because a prick would only cause unnecessary pain and spray would not freeze the cartilage. This nose piercing should be done by an experienced specialist; since the piercing should be done exactly perpendicularly to the nose, otherwise body jewelry would be crooked and fall to one side. Nose rings and hooves are used the most with a septum piercing.

Extreme types of nose piercing are: bridge piercing, deep nose piercing and vertical nose piercing. Bridge piercing is a piercing above the nose, a bit lower of eyebrows; whereas with a vertical piercing a puncturing takes place on the centre of the nose line, e.g. from the foundation to the tip of the nose. All complication of such piercing is in its performance. Piercer should be careful not to injure the septum while doing it. Needle should not touch septa. Wound of such piercing heals over quite long, because of injuries to a big area of cartilages of the nose's tip. In general it is a very painful procedure.

During a deep nose piercing, wings are punctured higher than on the usual level. Piercing is quite painful and heals over poorly, because it is done exactly in the cartilage.

The biggest problem that you may face with nose piercing is a probability of colloid scars' formation in a puncture spot. Most often it happens, because of the wound infection or because of wrong piercing-jewelry placement.

If you do not have desire to fight an infection of your wound, than find out beforehand how to care after your nose piercing during its healing period. It is forbidden to rub a puncture or take a nose ring out until total wound healing. It is necessary to treat a puncture spot with antiseptic solution prescribed by a specialist twice a day. Those are the main rules. More detailed information you would get in a piercing salon.

When you get nose piercing be ready for discomfort, which will happen to you during rhinitis. It would not be allowed to wipe your nose but only soak by a kerchief or a napkin; otherwise there is a risk of an accidental body jewelry removal.
