So you got a nose stud. Now what do you do? First, ensure that you clean the nose with a solution that does not contain alcohol or soap. Then, use a saline solution to clean the stud, or even a hydrogen peroxide solution. Then, rinse the stud well and allow it to dry before inserting it into your nose.
If you don’t know how to measure your nose, you can first measure the length of the post and then use that measurement as a guide. Your stud will sink if the post is too small. It is better to get a longer post in this situation. To ensure the stud’s longevity, you should measure the length of your nose and then use the post that fits it. The nose stud’s post will sag and fall if it is too long.
You can also tighten your nose stud a bit to make it sink. Take a look at it in the mirror to determine if it is uncomfortable. The removal process for the nose bone type studs is simple: hold the decorative end of a stud with one hand, and pull it out until it touches your nostril. Then, gently pull the stud out.
The risk of bumps in a needle piercing is minimized. To minimize the risk of bumps, you should keep the skin dry after the piercing and change the jewellery. A smaller gauge will allow the tissue to fill in more easily. However, this shouldn’t be too small, because it can cause tissue displacement. 0.2mm smaller gauge is ideal for the purpose.
Another cause of sinking piercings is swelling of the nose. A stud with a longer post and a large head will have a better chance of avoiding sinking. If your piercing is small, the stud will likely get lost in the swelling. It is important to take care of sinking nose studs.
