Nose piercing is one of the most popular piercings around the world.
Although the nose piercing existed in Eastern culture such as India and Pakistan, it began as a trend in Western countries somewhere after 80's , with the introduction of punk artists. Considered as a stylish piercing, it is very popular in the younger generation and even with people
as old as 80 years. With that said, nose piercing does not have any age limit.
The piercing procedure is pretty easy, and you will be walked
through each step as it's done. The piercer will pick a spot that
fits your anatomy and your desire. Be honest with your
piercer about the placement, after all you will have to live with it,
so go on and let the piercer change the spot until you're happy.
Also it's great to mention to the piercer if you are planing to
switch between hoops or studs, so the placement suits both.
The average healing time of the nose piercing is 3-4 months,
but don't be surprised if your piercing takes as long as one year
to heal. The cartilage has a very dense structure and the blood
vessels are on the surface only, which makes it harder for the
piercing to heal due the lack of blood circulation. It is very
common for the piercing to form a "fluid" type bump, or
something similar to a pimple. It is also common to form
hypertrophic scaring ( which has some similarities to a keloid). Your piercer will gladly go over the nose aftercare, as well as how to deal with any complications.
