A nose piercing can take anywhere from 4 to 6 months to fully heal, although it can take up to a year for some people. It's important to follow proper aftercare procedures to ensure a smooth and successful healing process.
Many people report that nose piercings are relatively low on the pain scale, with some comparing the sensation to a brief pinch or pressure. The amount of pain experienced can also depend on the location of the piercing, with nostril piercings typically being less painful than septum piercings. It's important to keep in mind that everyone's pain tolerance is different, so what may be uncomfortable for one person may not be the same for another.
Wash your hands with soap and water before touching your piercing.
Create a saltwater solution by mixing 1/4 teaspoon of non-iodized sea salt with 8 ounces of warm water.
Dip a sterile cotton swab or pad into the saltwater solution and gently clean around the piercing and jewellery.
Rinse the area with warm water to remove any residue.
Pat the area dry with a clean, disposable paper towel or allow it to air dry.
Avoid using alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, or other harsh chemicals on the piercing as they can irritate the skin and delay healing.
Clean the piercing twice a day until it is fully healed, which can take several weeks to several months depending on the type of nose piercing.
It's important to follow aftercare instructions provided by your piercer and avoid touching or twisting the jewellery as much as possible to prevent irritation or infection. If you experience any signs of infection, such as increased pain, redness, swelling, or discharge, contact a healthcare professional for advice.
It is generally recommended to wait for 6-8 weeks before changing a nose piercing for the first time. During this time, the piercing is still healing and changing the jewellery too soon can cause irritation, inflammation, and delay the healing process.

Nose studs usually come in an L-shaped design, which makes them easy to insert. However, they may not provide the most secure fit. Despite this, they remain popular and widely used. Additionally, nose studs are generally comfortable to wear.
Nose screws are designed in a screw-like form. Although they may be difficult to insert, they provide a more secure fit than nose studs. When inserting a nose screw, gently twist it in the direction of the spiral until the crystal is flush with the skin.
A nose ring goes through the piercing and forms a loop around the nostril. Some nose rings have a hoop shape while others have a stud-like design, and they come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes depending on personal preference.
Unlike traditional open nose hoops, seamless rings are bendable and have a small opening, which eliminates the need for a stopper at the end to keep the ring in place. This makes them easy to insert and comfortable to wear.
NOSE PIERCING SIZES
Choosing the correct fit for a new nose piercing is crucial as every nose is different and sizes can vary significantly. To determine the appropriate size, it is recommended to measure your current piercing if you are unsure. The most commonly used thicknesses are 0.8 mm and 1.0 mm. Nose bones, screws, and studs are typically 6 mm in length, while nose rings have a diameter of 8 mm.
Barbells can be used in some cartilage piercings.
Circular barbells can be used for septum piercings.
Circular barbells can be used for septum piercings.

Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water to avoid introducing bacteria into the piercing.
Clean the nose piercing and nose stud with a saline solution or soap and water.
Gently push the nose stud into the piercing hole, making sure the curved end is facing inside your nose.
Gently twist the stud until it feels secure.
Avoid touching the stud or the piercing for the first few days to avoid irritation and infection.
Remember to follow proper aftercare procedures to keep your nose piercing clean and healthy. If you have any concerns or experience pain or excessive bleeding during the process, seek advice from a professional piercer.
You should wait until your nose piercing has fully healed before changing it from a stud to a ring. This typically takes around 6-8 weeks for a nostril piercing, and up to 12 weeks for a septum piercing. It's important to wait for the piercing to heal completely to avoid irritation, infection, and damage to the piercing site. If you're unsure if your piercing has healed enough to change to a ring, it's best to consult with a professional piercer for advice
