Types of Nose Piercing
There are several types of piercings you can put on your nose and we'll list the most popular ones below:
Nose ring piercing
The nose ring piercing is one of the most popular piercings, especially among women, but also used by men. It consists of a normally delicate ring in the nostril. It is also popular as it can be a more discreet and delicate piercing.

Another piercing option that is even more discreet and delicate for the nose is pebbled. The piercing is usually steel, but it can also be silver or titanium, and tends to feature stones of various colors and styles. The size of the stone can also vary, with very subtle stones that go unnoticed to slightly larger stones, drawing a little more attention.
Stone nose piercings can also be found with Swarovski or rare stones, having a higher cost.

Does it hurt to pierce your nose?
This is the most common question among people who want to get a nose piercing: does it hurt to pierce your nose?
This is one of the most complicated answers because pain varies from person to person and also the ability of whoever is applying it, but in most cases a nose piercing is a piercing that hurts little to pierce, and can be compared to the application of an injection, in addition to being a quick process to drill.
Nose piercing care
Because piercings consist of piercing an area of your body, several precautions must be taken to avoid inflammation and have a quick and lasting healing. We always recommend that you follow the instructions of the professional who applied the piercing
- Clean the site carefully, using unscented products and clean hands.
- For the first few days you can use saline solution to clean your nose piercing, or some specialized piercing product.
- Avoid using products such as sunscreen, makeup and moisturizers until the piercing is 100% healed.
- Avoid using bathtubs, swimming pools or going to the beach, as these environments can contain bacteria and infect your piercing
- Be careful not to hit your piercing on objects
What to do in case of inflammation in the nose piercing?
If you have taken the recommended measures, the chances of your nose piercing becoming inflamed are low, but not non-existent. If your piercing becomes inflamed, we recommend that you seek medical help, as the way to treat and the level of infection may vary from person to person.
How much does it cost to get a nose piercing?
The price of piercing and application can vary a lot depending on the city, professional, type of jewelry used, and can range from R$50.00 to R$300.00 (which can be cheaper or more expensive).
Our recommendation is to look for a quality professional in your city, who takes the necessary hygiene measures and proper equipment, as this will also result in placement in the right place and reduce the risk of frustration or infections.
