Nose Piercing at HomeThere are many people who wish to get a nostril piercing. However, getting a nose piercing at home or doing it by yourself is not a good idea. Improper piercing and nose piercing jewelry getting out are just some of the issues you may encounter. More alarmingly, you can endanger your health and cause infections. This is why doing a nose piercing at home (or any sort of a piercing, for that matter) is not a good idea. If you already have a piercing like that, there are a few things you can do to improve this situation.

Getting a nose piercing at home is never a good idea. It doesn’t matter if you do it by yourself or if you get a friend to do it for you. In order to stay safe and to avoid infections and other problems, it is crucial to get all of your piercings at proper piercing studios. Since you decided to get a piercing at home it is first and foremost important to keep yourself and your piercing safe.

Nose Piercing at Home: Why It’s Bad

Doing a piercing with an earring is just a wrong way to go. Even if you attempt to sterilize the earring, it is difficult to do it at home since you don’t have an autoclave. Furthermore, an earring is simply not a piercing instrument. Proper piercers do their procedures with piercing needles that are fully sterile.

This is why it’s important to try to prevent an infection. You should not be worrying about your nostril rings getting out at this time – the first thing you need to do is to ensure that there is no infection. You need to monitor your piercing carefully and in case you notice any redness, pain, discharge or swelling, make sure to seek medical help. It is always easy to get a new piercing once you are healthy again but you need to stop any infection before it gets to nasty. Keep in mind that these infections can get serious so you need to react quickly.

In order to keep your piercing clean, apply a gentle saline solution to it a couple times per day. Since it is a homemade piercing the best course of action would be to simply let it heal and then go to a reliable piercing studio to get a new piercing. However, if you don’t want to do that, make sure to keep this one clean and monitor it carefully to notice any signs of infection.

Why is Jewelry Getting Out?

You mention that the jewelry is getting out. This can be a problem because the piercing will start to heal if there is no nostril jewelry in it. Since this is a homemade piercing, healing might be the best way to go. It would also be helpful to go to a reliable piercer to check if your piercing is healthy and if you managed to pierce through the whole nostril properly. There are many mistakes people make when doing piercings at home so it’s important to check if everything is alright.

However, if you want to keep your piercing you need proper nostril jewelry for it. Again, a common earring is not a good jewelry choice for a nostril piercing. You will need to get a proper nostril jewelry for your piercing. This jewelry has a special design that makes it difficult to fall out of the piercing. Nostril jewelry is not expensive and it can be very attractive.

You may choose between straight Nose Bones, curved Nostril Screws and other designs for nostril piercings. Gold nostril screws are particularly attractive and they are difficult to fall out of the piercing. You may also wear rings such as Captive Bead Rings of fixed rings in your nostril piercing but those need to fit your nostril piercing. Again, regular earrings just won’t do. Keep this in mind when choosing nostril jewelry for your piercing.
