If we're were all being really honest with each other, we'd all be able to admit that we wish we were cooler than we are right now. While there are variations in how said coolness might be achieved, one of the most interesting ways that presents itself here and there is a nose piercing. Depending on your experience with these piercings, you might imagine the extent of the jewelry being quite extravagant or pretty tame, but either way, it makes a statement. The thing is, though, that not everyone can pull it off.
Or can they?
The real question might more about what exactly the piercing might entail versus whether or not you could actually look cool with it. If you live in a hip enough city, you've probably seen your fair share of them, and on average, they tend to look pretty OK. Some are certain a little more garish than others, and still others are pretty subdued. The most interesting nose piercings tend to be on individuals who you'd never think would actually rock one. In the interest of full disclosure, my mother is a septuagenarian and has a little diamond stud on her right nostril. She's kind of my spirit animal.
There are a lot of people out there who would like to know more about these, and other, piercings but aren't quite sure how, or who, to ask for that matter. If this sounds like you, you're not alone. Recently, some of the nation's leading tattoo and piercing studios surveyed clients about their nose piercings, hoping to get some insight into the most common questions they had about nose piercings before they went through with the procedure.
Here were the most common responses:
What kind of cost is involved? Usually these types of piercings are relatively inexpensive, which makes them popular to folks testing the waters of piercings beyond the ears.
What's the after care like? It's pretty basic, but it requires patience and dedication. You can't skimp on things, and there are no off days.
Does it hurt? If so, how much? It all really depends on the person as some people have a pretty high pain tolerance. If you wanted an honest answer, yes, it will hurt, and in some cases, it can hurt pretty bad depending on where on the nose the piercing is.
How visible will it be to others? It's a piercing on your nose. Unless your interactions with people are at a distance, people will notice.
Are there any long-term effects? There is available literature about some issues that may arise due to nose piercings that can go awry, the most common thing to look out for is infection, which can have serious consequences.
A nose piercing, as with any type of body art or modification, shouldn't be entered into lightly. Consult your local piercing studios and ask questions so that you feel comfortable enough to make an educated decision. Body art & modification are all about expression, and sometimes that can mean deciding it might not be your thing.
