Safe Nose Piercings, and Nostril Jewelry is here to stay

Nose Piercings and Nostril Jewelry are not a fad. It has been around for a very long time. It is found in many cultures around the world. It has been said that it originated in the middle east about 4,000 years ago. The Jewelry and piercing methods may have changed since then, but the piercing itself remains the same.

The body jewelry that is used in a nose piercing can be either a stud/screw type or a ring. Some options are Captive Rings, although Fixed Bead Rings, are much more highly preferred out of the two rings, because the bead will not fall out which happens constantly with the very light gauge captive rings.
Nostril Screws, Nose Bones, and Fishtails, are the different types of the nostril studs available. All of the body jewelry comes in different metals such as Surgical Steel, Titanium, and 14k Gold (nickel free gold is highly recommended).
The most common place for your nose piercing is through the curve of one of the nostrils. You can pierce this area with no problem it at all. It can take 2-3 months for the piercing to completely heal, but most people will heal sooner when taken care of properly.

You should never allow your nose to be pierced with a ear piercing gun. The guns can not be sterilized properly. This leaves you at risk for disease the HIV and hepatitis. Also you are more likely to develop a Keloid from the gun because it forces the jewelry through the skin. When a piercer does the piercing it is done with a needle to avoid this trauma, and to make room for the new jewelry. The correct jewelry will then be inserted, not a regular earring made for your ear.

Is it Body Jewelry Cheap, or just Cheap Body Jewelry?

Why are there so many different prices on Body Jewelry for what all appears to be the exact same thing? You’ve heard it over and over again,
“you get what you pay for”, well it is true.
Usually a ring that is $0.99 is simple not even close to the same quality of a ring that is $11. Now I don’t mean to say that the price tells the whole truth, because there are companies that will sell that same $0.99 ring to you for $11, but it is one indicator to look at. At the very least you need to realize that if 10 companies have their ring priced at $8 to $12 and another company has what seems to be the same ring for $1.99 or whatever, then the odds are very good that the $1.99 ring is crap.

Body Jewelry is especially hard because the differences are very subtle, and can go totally unnoticed by the trained eye, and certainly by the newcomer. Some are even impossible to check without x rays, and the companies know this.

Metal Allergy, or More likely Cheap China Jewelry like from Spencer’s or one of the cheap kiosks in the Mall. Also the Curves are now to short due to the Inflammation. Hard to say if they were always to short.

Cheaper quality items can have a lot of nickel in them to cause a nickel reaction in your body like seen above. Sometimes they even use what is commonly known as pot metal which is total garbage and barely suited for little figurines or key chains in vending machines. In Glass body Jewelry there are major issues of strength, where one piece has a high strength the other may be prone to shatter, which needless to say is not good in your piercing. ;-)

On metal pieces there can also be sharp corners, burrs, scratches and even gouges. aesthetically there is also the grade of the polish on the metal. Does the Stainless Steel look like your kitchen sink, or a medical instrument. There is a huge difference between 316L Surgical Steel and 316LVM Surgical Steel.

The effects to your piercing from wearing low quality body jewelry made with inferior metals that are not suitable for your piercing can be serious, commonly causing piercing rejection, infections, and Keloids. And to tell you the truth none of those are much fun. Why would you go through the pain and healing maintenance time if you are just going to stick anything in your piercing. The odds are it will get badly infected and if not taken care of your piercing will migrate out, or you will have to take the jewelry out and let it close up under a doctors care, and then either way you will not have the piercing at all. (note: Do not ever take the jewelry out of an infected piercing without a doctors advice).

Sometimes you can find the popular items for up to 10 times less cost then other retailers. Now just add the doctors bills, prescription antibiotics, and getting the piercing done again, to that $0.99 and you will have your true cost. (not counting pain and aggravation of course)
