The nostril is a very common piercing that can be traced back to many cultures. Often done with 20g or 18g but can be done up to 12g. Best placed on the ridge in the middle of the side of the nose. It can be done with a nostril screw which is a curved piece of wire that sits against the inside of the nose and a stud like end, which can be everything from a gem setting to disc and cone ends. For healing and cleaning, the nostril screw tends to be harder to clean or care for. I prefer to do the piercing with a Captive Bead ring ,then If wished changing to a nostril screw after this has healed. Average healing time is 8-12 weeks.
