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.
