The traditional people who pierce the Nose are “thattaan” in kerala. I undertake the “thattaan job” not because I have much time to spare, but after seeing many girls who had infected pierced noses from street jewelers who don\’t perform the procedure in sterile manor. It is advisable to have it done in a hospital setting, with sterile equipments.
Nose piercing was bought to India in the 16th Century from the Middle East by the Moghul 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 Ayuvedra with the female reproductive organs, the piercing is supposed to make childbirth easier and lessen period pain.
Ancient Ayurvedic text Sushruta Samhita (Chikitsa Sthana Chapter 19) to suggest that nose piercing was prevalent from ancient period. It is believed that the piercing of the nose near a particular node on the nostril lessens the pain during monthly menstrual cycle.
Nose stud is widely worn in South India, especially in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and in parts of Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, by both married and unmarried young women. It is known as â€˜mookkutthi.\’ In some instances, women wear nose stud on both the wings of their nose. Now a days nose ring studded with diamonds is the fashion of the day.
