Nose piercings: a popular adornment inspired by a Goddess
A great piercing choice to get done these Holidays!
Nose –or nostril- piercings have been around for thousands of years in different native cultures aroudn the world, but especially in India were they are regarded as a mark of beauty and social standing, as well as a Hindu’s honor to Parvati, the goddess of marriage. Both men and women can have their nostrils pierced.
This type of piercing has become very popular in the western world in the last decades, and is the most common piercing choice after the ear lobe piercings.
They are performed by piercing through the thinnest part of the nose, just above the curve of the nostril. The piece of cartilage that divides each nostril called the septum, can also be pierced.
Common types of jewelry used on nostril piercings and proper care
Nose studs, ball closure rings and labret studs are very common. The nose studs can be curved or straight, and the curved ones are also called nose screws because they are twisted into place.
Nose piercings are cool and fashionable, but they also require responsible care in order to heal correctly and look good. This piercing should be cleaned at least twice daily with saline solution. Avoid swimming and submersion in water until it is healed.
