The nose piercings
The nose piercings are nowadays among the most popular. Historically, we can see it as a common adornment, for example, in India, Africa, Nepal, or Australian natives. The first mention of nose piercing dates back more than 4000 years ago, when it is often of religious or ritual importance. For the production of jewelry for nose piercing, materials used at the time were used, such as bronze, gold or silver.
Nowadays, the most used metal for the manufacture of piercing nose jewelry is the 316L surgical steel in various color modifications, which is popular for its good anticorrosive properties and low cost. The popularity of titanium, which is by its properties such as hardness, about half the weight lighter than the 316L steel, and the very good acceptance of body tissues is a much more suitable material, but at a higher price. The growing popularity of nose piercing in Europe and America dates back to the early 1980s, with the punk movement expanding beyond its reach.
The nose piercings have been so domesticated
The nose piercings have been so domesticated to the extent that they are tolerated in social circles, most employers and schools as opposed to other types of piercing or tattooing. Often, older women, for whom it is usually the only piercing adornment, often decide for him.
The basic jewel for piercing the nose is the so-called nostril, which is straight or U-shaped, a hooked piece of wire, often ended with a ball or a stone. It can be made of 316L, titanium, bioplastic, acrylic, or flexible bioflex. The best selling version of the nose piercing is the so-called clove (photo 1). This is an unfinished ring that has a plate on one side. After inserting the jewelery into the nose, the plaque remains invisible inside the nasal cavity, the outside of the jewelery acts as a solid ring (photo 2). This jewel is particularly popular for very easy insertion when it is not necessary to use piercing pliers and somehow stretch the ring. In recent years, the use of various rings, segments, or specially crafted jewelery has grown, for example, for septum piercing when it comes to different rings often planted with a number of stones with a special clip for easy insertion.
The pain of the nose piercing is not significant
The pain of the nose piercing is not significant. Injection is performed with a cannula needle and is a very fast procedure. Unfortunately, even today, we can meet unqualified, often medical, workplaces in which nose piercings shoot, which is a method that is unhealthy to the tissue. Healing usually takes place without complications and without significant external signs. From the beginning, redness may occur around the injection, usually within 1-2 mm. In any case, we do not recommend this place to mask with a powder or makeup that could negatively affect the healing of the piercing and not lubricate with calcium ointment, because then it tends to wet. During healing, care should be taken to keep the jewelery out of order and not check it and regularly clean the jewelery and the surroundings from the dry strokes. We always recommend wetting instead of sprouts and do not try to remove them dry and violently. Ideal for purification, we have proven a sea salt spray to moisten the nasal mucosa. If healing proceeds as a standard, we do not recommend nose piercing until full healing is removed. The hole is very fast and it is often difficult to put the piercing back on. On the first replacement for another jewel, we recommend going to your piercer, who should be able to assess whether the time is right for the replacement. Before this replacement, it is usually necessary to wait for several months until full healing. We often have questions about whether your scar will stay on the scar after the piercing of your nose, so most women choose the weakest diameter of piercing jewelry, most often 0.8mm. Most people have a hole in the piercing so much that it is impossible to trace where they were placed.
The most common piercing of the present day is Nostril (photo 2, 4, 5, 6) where the puncture is placed on the left or right side of the nose. The popularity of Septum (photo 3) is increasing, while Nasallang, Austin bar, Nasal tip (Rhino), Mantis, etc. are rarely encountered.

Nipple piercing is again very popular, especially for young women. Recently, the demand for its implementation is even more common than the belly piercing. Some ladies want to have piercings of both nipples so that everything is pretty symmetrical, others will only be satisfied with one pierced nipple. Today we show the most common types of piercing jewelry for nipple piercings and the most common designs.
The most suitable jewel in a fresh nipple piercing is clearly a dumbbell or Barbell (photo 1), made of titanium. Ideally, only the material with a diameter of 1.6 mm is used for fresh nipple piercing. Thin material is inappropriate because it is uncomfortable to wear and the body can in exceptional cases completely eliminate it. The length of the dumbbell always depends on the specific shape and size of the nipple, usually ranging in men from 10mm to 12mm and in women from 14mm to 18mm. The nipple needs to be measured in the quiescent state and used with about 3-4 millimeters longer rod. For cleaning and good healing, you should always choose a longer stick of piercing jewelry, after healing the piercing changes to shorter. Healing can sometimes take several months. Elderly women and children of children usually have far more suitable nipples to perform this type of piercing, and hence the healing time is significantly shorter.
After healing, of course, the dumbbell can be replaced for many types of other piercings and also stretched to the extreme diameters. Various designs of BCR rings (photo 2), horseshoes, segments, and special jewelery specially made for nipple piercing (photo 3 and 4) are commonly used. Larger diameters use lighter materials such as acrylic or titanium because of the weight. Although this is not common, there are users who have even tunnels left in the nipples, but they have to be made to order. Classic in-ear tunnels are not used because they are not wide enough. Men are predominantly nipple stretching, women are dominated by various ornaments and jewelry often with plenty of glittering stones. Since the nipple piercings are back to fashion, the number of jewelery from the piercing manufacturers increases proportionally.
Women often ask if their nipple piercings will affect during pregnancy. In most cases, it is necessary to take the piercing at the time of breastfeeding, in pregnancy the piercing itself does not matter much. In some cases, you can put the jewelery back on the end of the breastfeeding process, in most cases the hole is very fast when you remove the jewelery and you need to re-insert the jewelery.
There are plenty of women who have so-called invisted nipples. It is often a congenital deformation of the breast where the center of the nipple is not protruding as it is usual, but it is sunken inside (photo 5). Someone may feel unsteady and breastfeeding problems may also occur. Women often perceive this minor deviation very intensely, desperate and undergoing surgical procedures to change the appearance of their nipples. In most cases, simple nipple piercing can help them. When the piercing jewel is inserted properly, the center of the nipple is drawn outwards and the nipple looks completely normal (photo 6). The application of piercing is complex in this case and more experience is needed, the result achieved is usually much better and incomparably cheaper than surgery.
With piercing of the nipple, even in the several years of healed piercing, it may happen that the piercing is irritated, for example, by the penetration of some dirt, or by marking the jewelery of clothing. The area around the piercing will usually swell and swell. It is often necessary to proceed in such cases as if the piercing was completely fresh and often more complicated to replace the jeweler after a simple titan dumbbell and wait until the area around the piercing calms down again.
