Nose piercing is one of the most popular form of body piercing in the world. In fact, in some countries, nose piercings are considered much more than a fashion statement. Tribes see nose piercings as a way to assert their femininity and in some circumstances, their dominance. For instance, in India and Nepal, women get nose piercings for it is recommended by their Ayurveda, India’s main healthcare system.
If you are thinking about getting a nose piercing then you have come to the right place. In this article, we will be discussing basic information on nose piercing and the things that you should do to take care of the piercing after the procedure.
Generally, there are three types of nose piercings: the nostril, nasal septum, and bridge or earl. The first one is one of the most common type in some tribes for the left side of the nose is often associated with the reproductive organs of females. Piercing the left side of the nose is said to ease the pain of childbirth and relieve menstrual cramps. The second type of nose piercing is on the nasal septum or that cartilaginous divide between your nostrils.
The nasal septum piercing is a delicate one to get – you have to make sure that the piercer does the procedure exactly between the gap in the cartilage and the bottom of the nose. And lastly, the people get a piercing on the bridges of their nose, just at the top of the nose, in between the eyes. The earl piercing is less used than the first two mentioned types. However, since it is also the most visible one at first glance, people opt for it to stand out.
Pain during and after the piercing procedure has been a main concern for people who are thinking of getting a nose piercing. The piercing will be located in an area with a lot of nerves so expect that the procedure will not be exactly painless. However, the degree of pain in the procedure can also be affected by the method used in piercing. A sterilized needle is a better choice than a nose piercing gun.
The latter can cause more pain and can also potentially be harmful. Pain in nose piercings can also be caused by poor piercing procedure, poor quality or unsuitable sized nose piercing jewelry.
After undergoing a nose piercing procedure, it is important that you take care of the piercing and ensure that it will not get infected. Taking care of the piercing means that you have to clean it every so often and you have to stay away from things that will irritate the pierced area. Clean the piercing area at least twice a day using cotton swabs dipped in sea salt solution. Gently swab the pierced area with the cotton swab.
Aside from the usual cleaning, you also need to do sea salt water soaks. Soak a cotton ball in a sea salt solution and gently press it against the pierced area. Keep the ball over the area for at least three minutes, throw the cotton ball, and repeat the process again for about 2-3 times.
Some time after getting the procedure, there will be crusts forming over the pierced area. This crustiness is due to the discharges that dried over the area. Refrain from removing them frequently for this might cause infection. If you do need to remove them, use cotton buds to gently swab the area.
When taking a bath, you also need to be careful in handling your face for you can accidentally touch the pierced area or put strong substances that may cause irritation.
Getting a nose piercing is not an easy thing to do but it is a form of body expression which can help you feel empowered and free. Just follow the things outlined above and you will have a nose piercing to be happy about in a few weeks’ time.
