Keeping this in view, when can I change my nose stud to a smaller one?
How long until I can change my jewelry? Wait at least six months. Nostril piercings are not very forgiving if you try to change the jewelry too soon. Not waiting long enough could result in irritation, a tear to the piercing channel, scarring, an increased risk of infection, or difficulty reinserting the jewelry.
Then, what are the different sizes of nose studs?
The two most common diameter sizes for nose hoops are 5/16? (8mm) and 3/8? (10mm). Individuals with larger noses or with large-gauge nose piercings may need rings with a larger diameter size.
Which side should a girl pierce her nose?
Most nose piercings are done at 18 gauge. … Occasionally, people choose to go down as small as 22 gauge, but if you didn’t intentionally downsize, then you most likely don’t wear such a thin gauge.
Nostril screws have a spiral-type curve halfway down the stud and this threads through the piercing then rests against the inside of the nostril to keep the jewelry in place. L bend nose rings stay in the same way, but they have a 45-degree bend instead of a twist/screw.
If your piercing is fresh, it can close up in a matter of minutes. If you’ve had it for less than a year, you can expect it to close up within a few hours or days. The inside of the hole can close up rather quickly, even if you’ve had the piercing for years.
If your nose piercing is less than or at least 6 months old, it will begin to get smaller/close up within a day or two. Especially the inner side of your nose piercing hole turns smaller very quickly.
Probably the most popular nose stud style, the L-shape nose stud is characterized by the 90-degree bend in its post (shaped like an L). Once inserted, the jewelry will sit flush against your nostril while the bent post keeps the jewelry firmly in place.

If your earring is made of safe material and is small enough to fit into your nose piercing, then you can always get a piercer to insert it for you.
