Nose Bone. Nose bones are straight studs which are slightly flared on one end, forming a small ball which is used to keep the jewelry from falling out. Nose bones are best used for healed piercings. The flared end may be one gauge larger than the post, irritating a new or unhealed piercing easily.
Similarly, how do you put in a hoop nose ring with a ball?
In this manner, how do you know if your nose ring is too small?
Should my nose ring be tight? No, your nose ring should not fit tightly. If you feel pressure on your piercing after inserting your hoop, or you have a difficult time fully closing your nose hoop, then the inner diameter you’re wearing is too small.
Do straight nose studs stay?
Nose studs are one of the types of nose rings that stays in the best for most nostril piercings. Nosebones are short, straight barbells that have a larger decorative end and a smaller end that rests on the inside. The end is small enough to push through the piercing but will still anchor the jewelry in.
Second off, if you do have a bigger nose, all you need to do is tailor your nose ring of choice to suit your facial shape. If the base of your nose is larger than the bridge, consider a nostril piercing over a septum piercing.
Remember that an ear piercing cannot be replaced as a nose piercing, earrings are designed specifically for the ear if you use it on the nose so it may look a bit wired. You should use earrings only on the ears and nose jewelry only on the nose.
If your piercing is fully healed and you’re using the correct gauge (thickness) jewellery, it shouldn’t hurt to change from a stud to a hoop. It might feel a bit odd, but it shouldn’t hurt. My piercer changed my stud to a hoop, and it didn’t hurt. If it is healed it does not hurt.
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.
Check that it’s in properly.
You should be able to see the end of the L-shaped stud inside your nose. The end that is inside your nose should be pointing straight up or down, depending on your preference, and you shouldn’t be able to feel it. If you can feel it or its just uncomfortable, readjust it’s position.
The thickest Gauge is 18 Gauge. This would be your choice if you have recently had your nose pierced or wear that gauge normally. 20 Gauge is thinner than 18G and is the standard most popular size. If you are unsure this would be your best choice.
