Types of Nose Piercing
There are several types of nose piercings that you can put in your nose, and we will list the most popular ones below:

Another even more discreet and delicate piercing option for the nose is the small stones. The piercing is usually made of steel, but can also be made of silver or titanium, and tends to have stones in various colors and styles. The size of the stone can also vary, from very subtle stones that go unnoticed to stones a little larger, 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 get a pierced nose?
This is the most common doubt among people who want to get a nose piercing: does it hurt to get a nose piercing?
This is one of the most complicated answers because the pain varies from person to person and also the ability of the person who is going to apply it, but in most cases the nose piercing is a piercing that hurts little to pierce, and can be compared to the application of an injection, besides being a quick process to pierce.
Nose Piercing Care
Because piercings consist of piercing an area of your body, several precautions must be taken to avoid inflammation and to have a quick and lasting healing. We always recommend following 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 product for piercings.
- 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 of the nose piercing?
If you have taken the recommended steps, the chances of your nose piercing becoming inflamed are low, but not non-existent. If your nose piercing does become inflamed, we recommend that you seek medical help, as the treatment and 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 measures of hygiene and proper equipment, as this will also result in the placement in the right place and decrease the risk of frustration or infection.
