Nose piercing in girls a new trend and it is the second most popular type of body piercing after ear piercing. In India where nostril piercing is an integral part of culture, a lot of parents get their daughter\’s nose and ears pierced during childhood. Nose piercing can be performed on either left or right nose, but then the preferred points for this may differ from one place to another.
Nose piercing was bought to India in the 16th Century from the Middle East by the Mogul emperors. In India a stud or a ring is usually worn in the left nostril. It is sometimes joined to the ear by a chain, and in some places both nostrils are pierced. The left side is the most common to be pierced in India, because that is the spot associated in Ayurveda with the female reproductive organs, the piercing is supposed to make childbirth easier and lessen menstrual period pain.
Piercing by Gun or Needle?
The Gun was designed to be sterile because of the no touch principle, no skin came in contact with the gun and therefore it was safe to be used repeatedly.
The studs used in the gun were designed to pierce the flesh of the ear, the nose is quite thick cartilage, and in some instances the gun fails to pierce the nose on the first attempt.
The whole reason for getting your nose pierced is for aesthetics, it is very hard to sometimes get the proper placement using the gun, and you have a very large unsightly stud in your nose.
The needle piercing method gives minimal pain, exact placement, and you can have a tiny stud inserted immediately. A drop of local anesthetic is given prior to piercing which makes it painless. After care, apply an antibiotic ointment before and after taking bath.
Many people debate whether a stud or a ring is the best jewelry, and you will find wearers split in their preferences.
Self piercing is risky, please don\’t attempt it, you may end up in hospital.
