Rings In Nostril Piercings Pros & Cons by a Piercer S02 EP46

In Season 2 Episode 46, DaVo covers the Pros & Cons of wearing rings in nostril piercings. Also, he covers the style of rings and living with rings.

I aka DaVo have been a professional body piercer and the owner of the Axiom Body Piercing Studio in Des Moines, Iowa since 1994. My focus on education and helping clients make safe and informed decisions on getting pierced has always been a large part of my business practices and services. With my website and increasingly on youtube, I hope to expand and inform others outside of my small part of the world. I always encourage questions and comments, so if you have one, please comment.
