Just take some aspirin and crush up the pills and add some water to make it a sort of paste. Apply that to the nose piercing and leave it for 10 minutes and wash it off. That should take the bump away.

When you get your nose pierced is there a "special" side to get it done on that means your "straight" or does it really matter?

honestly, i work in a salon where we do nose pierecings, and ive had mine done 3 times due to my own stupidity, and i switched sides from one to the other and back again. it's not a big deal, one side doesnt mean youre "straight" or "gay" or whatever, it's a personal preferance.

Actually, nose peircings should not be done with a gun because it will cause more scar tissue afterwards, and will delay healing drastically. recently, piercings with guns have all been outlawed except for using the guns for earlobes and thats it. although using a needle seems like it would be more painful, its not and will really be to your advantage in the long run.

I pierced my nose myself 2 weeks ago with a needle, it wasnt that bad, it doesnt seem to be infected, i did it with a clean needle and have a new clean nose ring in and clean it everyday, i dont recomend doing it yourself because its not for everyone,and u never know what could happen, but doing it myself saved me 40 bucks for having some stanger hammer a needle in my nose!

It's best not to do it yourself because your brain and your nose use the same blood vessels, and if you use an unsterilised pin that could be bad. Then infection could spread to your brain and cause brain damage. I'm not trying to scare anyone, i'm just warning you. That's why it's best to get it done professionally.

OMG .. I'm sorry but i cant believe you are saying that you can get your piercing done with a gun as well as a needle. many states are outlawing it. guns cant be sterilized, they are plastic and will melt, they use the same one on everyone [ GROSS I KNOW ] also, the gun slams a blunt post into your [nose ear whatever] and shatters the cartilage like a broken bone, a needle simple slided through making room for the earing .. the people who use guns have one week of training THEY ARE PUTTING HOLES IN YOUR BODY, the people who use needles have 2-3 years of training. another thing is, with the gun the piercer has to guess where they are piercing, they cant see it because the gun is big, with a needle you have a direct shot. it so 100% safer to get it done with a needle

I just got my nose pierced by a professional with a 16-gauge needle. I've had my labre and lip pierced, and I'll say nose piercing's a little more painful, but it won't make you freak out. My eyes watered a bunch, but that was about the worst part. I have just realized right now it's not a good idea to drink soda right after a nose piercing  *stings* Definately go to a reputable person, though, because you don't want to go to someone grody and end up with brain damage because they did the piercing wrong (yeah an infection from a nose piercing can cause brain damage).

Hi everybody. I am fifteen years old. My mom said i could get my nose peirced for my birthday (so long as it was the side becuase the middle looks like a bull from the rodeo)and i already found a place to get it done.

My mom had to go to the dermatologist's office to get a tumour removed from her face and i found out that they do peircings and airbrush tanning there as well.

Would it be wisest to go to the doctor to do it or what? I already found out that they use a steel gun (steel so it can be sterilized) and its specific so that it can fit your nose (not as big as an ear gun.)

BTW its not a blunt post you moron, have you never seen a peircing stud? The ones tehy have where im going are almost like earrings except that they have a tiny triangle on the bottom instead of a nut with a very sharp point.

One of my friendfs from the dancre classes i take got her nose epirced twice. one with a needle (which left a scar and closed up too quickly) and once with a gun which work3d better.

In response to Mir... if you need nickel free / lead free earrings, then you definitely shouldn't wear any nose studs that could irritate you... get the sensitive studs that don't contain those metals or ones that are surgical steel (I'm pretty sure very few people are allergic to surgical steel).

You are all stupid. Getting a piercing done with a gun is not the best way to go. Especially with your nose. Its not 100% safer or whatever crap your trying to sell these people.  Its the WORST thing to do. Needle is much safer and it takes maybe 5 seconds at the MOST, and doesn't' hurt. I have mine dun, so don't spaz.

In my opinion, I think that all piercings should be done with a ring, because you can clean it faster and more efficiently. But it all depends on how fast you heal.

I am going to get my nose pierced within the next few weeks, or so. Like everyone else said, what to get it pierced with is very confusing, because a gun is less painful, less money, and less healthy. But with a needle, it is more percise, more espensive, and more painful. I am not sure which is better. I do have my naval pierced, and YES it did hurt very much, i would not want to experience that again, but i want to know which is worse from personal experience please! Thanks.

I have never had anything peirced permanently, except my ears.  I have peirced my navel and nipple on my own, but only to play around.  I think you need to look farther than just a piercing with a gun versus with a needle.  The thing that I would want to know, is the peircers experience or how long has he been doing it and the reputation of the place you are getting it done.  I would reccomend getting it professionally done, you have very little risk of it getting infected (unless you don't take care of it afterwards like you're supposed to).  Spend that $40 or however much it is to get it done right and from somebody who knows what they are doing.  You can also check out the Better Business Bureau and I would definitely check out the Department of Health before going somewhere unless you know someone, or something that would make you feel comfortable about going.  I just know that the places I went to get my tattoos...is the place where the department of health kinda compares the other tattoo parlor's in town. But I also have a really good friend who's brother is the one who owns the shop and he has been tattooing for many many many years.  The same type of criteria goes for anything that goes into your flesh, because infection is not an option.

Hey, I got my nose pierced just yesterday (August 14th, 2004). I  got it done at a parlor called lucky 13 tattoo. They offer to pierce it with a gun or needle.. but i didnt want to have to get a hoop so i got it done with a gun. It was completly PAINLESS! If you have gotten your ears pierced (lobes) then you know the exact feeling. My eyes watered and that was it! My nose has not been red yet, even when i got it pierced. The bump that everyone talks about from a gun, is not true. My piercer said the bump occurs from the piercee's skin. Its when your skin reacts to the metal. I think everyone should get their nose pierced with a gun. It is VERY QUICK, and completely PAINLESS!

I had my nose pierced 4 days ago. It didn't hurt, it was just a little tender at first (still is now if I touch it). I had it done with a needle - I was a little bit afraid of the needle, but I heard that it was the best way.

I had my lip pierced a few months ago - I had to remove it because it was hitting my tooth and making it hurt - but I would say that the nose hurt more than my lip.

It's healing just fine, I think. There's no redness, no swelling.

How long should I leave it until I can change the stud? The piercer (who had his lip pierced 3 times, and the back of his neck pierced 4 times) told me to clean it every day for 2 weeks, so does that mean I should leave it in for 2 weeks, then change it?

Needle is the way to go for ALL cartelage piercing... the top of the ear, nose, everything! The bump can be caused by trying to change the piercing to soon. Use warm salt water to make it go away.

I have my tounge, belly button and ears peirced 19 times. I had my nose and my eye brow done. I hated my nose!! It was the nastiest one to keep clean!! I didn't think it hurt untill I got to the inner layer of skin before it came threw the other side. No a gun will not split the cartlage in your ear or your nose. cartlage is to flexible to split. Just remember to keep it really clean and you all should be ok. The pain isn't THAT bad but I'm not gonna lie every pericing hurts a little. no matter what you do for some reason pushing a peice of mettal threw you kinda hurts. Just remember to take a deep breath close your eyes and let your adrenalin take over. In a while you wont remember what it felt like.

i spent this summer piercing ears, and i never felt more guilty in my life.
i have eight piercings in my ears, including my cartilidge, all of which were done with a gun.

the gun caused many complications in my cartilidge, and it was badly infected for months. it took about two years to fully heal, and i have spoken with many people who have had the same problems with cartilidge piercings. i got mine done mere months before the town banned the use of piercing guns on cartilidge.

the people at claire'sare trained, that's true. but my training consisted of being thrown into it by a coworker who needed a second person to do both ears of a 4-year-old. it's not a good situation. it's not a perfect science. and NEVER, NEVER trust anyone that is willing to pierce your nose with a gun.

and yes, compared to a needle, the point on that starter earring is pretty damn blunt.

for the ear piercings... guns should not be used on ANY part of the body, including ears.


about two months ago i got my nose pierced at a reputable piercing studio with a needle. i can honestly say that my eyes didn't water, the piercing didn't bleed, and it has caused me less grief than my ear piercings did.

as for the fifteen-year-olds posting on here, i urge you to think twice before getting anything but your ears pierced. i can't tell you how many girls your age have come into my store and asking me what they did wrong with any of their piercings... usually because they haven't taken the proper care of it.


i work at claire's i use the gun and i would not wish this on anyone. spend the extra money, and get it done right. you'll thank yourself later.

To all of you who are afraid of the pain, it's not that bad.  Definately don't ever do a gun.  Find a very good piercer and have them do the needle.  I had my nose pierced a couple of months ago.  I walked into the place and was out the door in ten minutes flat.  No joke.  My eyes barely watered and my nose didn't bleed.  The pain was a small pinch and then it was over.  I had cartlidge in my ear done that hurt worse!  In two weeks time I was able to change the stud.  I reccommend it to anybody.  The pain is not bad and it should heal quickly.   It hurts less than stubbing your toes!

hi, am 13 and i got my nose done wen i was 10 it never hurt its just a shock but if u keep touchin it like my sis did it could easily fall out!

when i got mine done i was really excited, i got mine done with a gun, so did my sis, my sis also is 10 she thought it never hurt.

it will heal better with a screw or wot eva u call it, with a screw it is easier 2 clean then the with the ring, it also takes less for it 2 heal however if u keep touchin it and turning it, it will take even more 2 heal.

anyway if u have any questions then write were it says "your name or nickname" write question 4 candy, i recomend u gettin ur nose done as it looks good and dont hurt.

oh and dont get it done in the middle like a bull coz if u have a fight and sum one pulls it out then it WILL sting and u will have a whole there trust me it happend 2 my m8!!!

I got my nose pierced about a year ago, and it's healing great. . .

I'm the biggest wimp, so afraid of needles and pain, especially when he brought out the needle to pierce my nose.

BUT!! It was nothing, it just slid right in, and it wasn't really painful, just more of an odd feeling.  My eyes watered, and then it was over.  It was no biggie at all.

I definitley recommend a needle, the gun is entirely too  traumatic for the sensitive area of the nose.

Also defnitley go to a professional, some people can pierce themselves or have their friends do it, but for the majority that is a very very bad idea.

And as for, how do you convince your parents? Just wait until your 18. . until then, you may change your mind anyway.

don't get your cartilidge pierced with a gun... a friend of mine had her ear shattered that way. a needle might look scary or whatever, but it works best. go to a good place like harm city gallery and you'll be fine.

You can't rely on anecdotal evidence (ie- "your friend", "someone you know/saw") to determine whether or not to get pierced with a gun or a needle. Maybe your "friend" cleaned her gun-piercing really well and that's why it worked out ok, or maybe she was just lucky, but the facts are that you shouldn't use a gun to pierce ANYTHING! It is not hygienic, precise, or professional. You could also use a rusty nail to pierce your nose, but does that mean you should do it? Only a professional who has been trained should perform your piercing with gloves and a new hollow needle. He/she should also provide you with cleaning tips/aftercare. Don't settle for less- it's your face- and serious infections and/or nerve damage can occur. As far as pain goes- the gun is a bit less painful, but neither are excruciating. Because it's over so quickly, you only feel pain very briefly and if you can't handle the pain of the initial piercing you shouldn't get it done- cleaning and changing your piercing can be much more painful.

I have my belly, tongue and as of last week nose pierced and I would say that the belly was the worst for me.  nose just made my eyes water a bit.

I had mine done with a ring, and although I look pretty scary, the healing time and quality is supposed to be much better.  I say NEEDLE and RING!

I find that the best way to clean a fresh nose piercing, and to contiue to clean the pierced nose is to use surgical spirits.
It clean, hygienic, and very very effective to clean when the nose is sore, and to regularly clean the pierced nose.
The best way to clean the nose is to "dab" a Q-tip in the surgical spirit, and to clean around the nose, and the sore.
It`s also readily available at Pharmacies and is inexpensive to purches, and lasts a long time due to the size of the bottle.

Hi my husband pierced my nose with a "standard" yet sterilized sewing needle.  It was a flawless piercing, the nose stud fit perfectly and I haven't had any problems since, it's been over a year.  Mind you I would recommend you have a professional piercer do the work if your "friend or significant other" has never pierced anyone else ever, it's much safer and in a controlled environment. I had my tongue pierced last November by a highly recommended piercer in Oregon and the experience was wonderful.  Hope this helps.

I had my nose pierced 12 years ago. Back then, they used the guns, not the needles like they do now. I took it out a few years later, but am going to get it done again :o)

I had my navel done a year and a half ago and I love it!! I wish I had done it sooner. It did not hurt at all. I will get my tongue done once I get all the answers I want before it.

It is always important to do your research before you go get a piercing or tattoo...

Hey. I'm thinking about getting my nose pierced for my 18th birthday. But I'm a little unsure. I was wondering a few things (actually, a lot):
1. Does it hurt bad? For how long?
2. What kind of metal (for he needle) is most sterile?
3. Stud (which i prefer) or is a ring better in the beginning?
4. How's sleeping at first? Is it all red and nasty for while?
5. Does cleaning it hurt?
6. Does it change the way people look at you/ treat you. I like the indie, hipster crowd, but I also want to be okay with the mainstream people, and not have teachers or w/e look at my differently (b/c a big part of me is being the "cute little one"
7. Can you ever take it out? Big hole left when you do? If decided in a few years I don;t want it, will there be a scar?
Nows the time to do it, right? Like, i want it now and i won't in a few years, so screw my parents for getting mad at me or w/e! (haha)
Thanks so much!!! Ahhhhh
xoxo Abby

I had my nose pierced with a gun about 2 years ago and recently took it out because it never healed properly. In the beginning it looked like it was doing well, however, i noticed after 6 months, every time i took it out to change the stud, it would close up and i would have to force it back in (very painful). Also it formed a small bump around the hole which was very ugly and very noticeable when i wasn't wearing stud. Eventually i got frustrated and took it out all together, assuming it would finally heal and i could be done with the whole situation. I was wrong! Its been about 3 months now that i have had it taken out for and now i have a dark discolored bump on my nose and have to go see a dermotologist to get rid of it. Even though it was much more painless to get it done with a gun ( and cheaper) i really regret it. I strongly suggest getting it done with a needle. You will be much more pleased with the results.

i got my nose pierced with a gun 2 days ago. before i had it done i was told that guns are illegal and shouldnt be used. i was going to get it done with a needle because i'dheard with a gun you could have your nose broken or even loose part of your nose! when i got too the piercing shop or woteva i found out that it was £6.50 to get it done with a gun and £21.50 to get it done with a needle and as my m8 was paying for it for my birthday i didnt want her too spend that much on me and also spend £35.00 on my twin sister (she had her belly-button done) so i decided to have the gun. When i was sitting in the room i was soooo nervous, i was digging my nails into my m8 hand and praying that it didnt hurt, the woman who did it was really nice and told me she would be as gentle as possible. First she put this plastic thing inside my nose and then put the other part of the gun on the other side of my nose, at this point i was nearly weeing myself! then she pressed the gun down and i heard a loud bang, i slowly opend my eyes and they were full of tears, the woman showed me my piercing in the mirror, it looked all red and swollen, the woman told me that this was perfectly normal and should go down soon, she gave me a piece of paper on how to look after my piercing and said if i had any problems, i should just go back to her. two days on my piercing is fine, i havent had any problems and hope it stays that way. if anyone is wanting to get their nose pierced i dont see what is wrong with having a gun but i spose if you want too be really careful, have the needle. that is if you can afford it!

Hey ... i got my nose pierced 2 days ago, and yeah it hurt when i got it done, and it felt like i got punched in the face afterwards, but i would never recommend getting it done with a gun ... it just seems like there are so many reasons to not use a gun, so i went with a needle .... everyone that i know that has gotten it done used a needle and it healed fast, and turned out really good

as for telling you mom ..... my mom wasnt to impressed to say the least, but she seems fine about it now ... if you have a really good relationship with your mom ... i suggest telling her about it first, and talking it over with her ...

Good Luck with the piercings           XOXOX

Hey y'allI got my nose done on both sides, it hurt like anything but I done it.
At first its just like a little pinch, then its sore for a few weeks, but its not half as bad as gettin the top of your ear done    --In the cartilage-- I have my ears done three times on both sides, so I know what I'm talkin about when I say, There isn't much to gettin your nose done. Clean it regularly with peroxide, not alcohol, and you'll be fine. It doesn't always leave a scar, but you may get one!
I got mine ALL done with a gun, its A LOT better!
It faster and hurts less, its still not outlawed in a lot of places, so go for it!
Bumps are VERY normal, I had them on both sides... They eventually go away!
I can answer many more questions, just email me or add me to msn at:

And the second day i got it i was so stuoid and was like i want to see the hole and the ring so i took it out and then i couldn't put it back in and i started to cry because it was a christmas present and it hurt so bad and i felt so stupid!! I couldn't find a way to put it in because the ring is like a little hook. It was really late and the tatoo place far. so i called and they told me to put a regular ring in so i did and the next day i went back and the repierced it. I felt so stupid!!!! But now its healed and its cute!!! And people it doesn't matter what side you get it on i got it on my right and it looks totally cute

What it is is a blood blister. it can happen when you get it pierced with a gun. it happened to me. leave it for about a month and if it doesn't go away i would let it heal up.

in response to "yo", i just got my cartilage pierced with the gun and to tell you the truth, i didn't even feel it, it just felt really hot. But some people say it really hurts, i guess its just your pain tolerance. It also has not been infected once and (haha) i haven't cleaned it since the first week of having it pierced. good luck with your piercing:) hope i helped.

Hello everyone:

Adressing questions...
Okay, As to the gun/needle debate, I honestly prefer needles. I've been pierced with both and I found the gun to be much more painful, and it healed much slower.

As to the pain of nose peircing? Its minimal. I'd say equal to the pain of ears, but less painful than bellybuttons.
The big deal with a peircing on your face isn't really that it will hurt, but I think its more stressful when you can see it.

And to the person who fainted? No worries!!! I've fainted after each of my 8 peircings. Just tell them beforehand that you might, and bring a soda or something to raise your bloodsugar after you wake up!

So thats about all I've got everyone. I'd really advise paying the extra 20 or 30 bucks and having a professional peirce me. I don't know about ya'll but stabbing myself doesn't seem very good... at all!

Good luck everyone, and happy peircing!

I want to get my nose pierced and my mom said ok... I'm not sure what to get it pierced with.. so far I have been doin' some researchin' and doctors and piercers alike say that using a needle is safer, more accurate, and quickens healin' time. So I am probably gonna get it done with a needle... I hope this helps anyone that is confused!;)

THE ANSWER TO YO:i got my cartilidge done like almost a half a year ago and it hurt but if you just keep it clean, it wont hurt you much. just dont try to sleep on it because it will hurt after a while and it takes longer to heal.:D hope theis helps!

I got my nose pierced about 3 months ago and the proffesionist that did used a tweezer like tool (ring closure tool) to do it. I DIDN'T FEEL ANYTHING... IT DIDN'T HURT AT ALL BUT I GUESS IT DEPENDS ON HOW STRONG U ARE . My eyes just got a lil wattery but that was it not even a tear went down my chin.FOR ALL THE GURLS THAT WANNA GET THEIR NOSE PIERCED GO AHEAD, IT DOESN'T HURT... WHAT I RECOMMEND IS THAT YOU GET IT DONE WITH A RING CLOSURE TOOL. I don't wanna scare anyone but I hear that it hurts to get it done with a gun. Believe me there was this gurl at the mall getting it done with a gun.........oUch she was crying like a little gurl.lol

P.S
I'm 15 and in order to get my nose pierced  done i had to take my mom with me.

I just got my nose pierced 3 days ago and was told that they dont use guns for the nose because it will shatter the cartilige and it wont heal  correctly, Also the gun cannot be sterilized. It does hurt for a second but the worst part is how badly your eyes water! I would only recommend using a needle.

in response to whoever thought it would hurt, i just got my nose pierced on new years eve and it hurt for a split second when the needle went through, and that was it. i would definatly do it again if i had to. it wasn't that bad.  it did bleed though, but it didn't even hurt right after or the next day.

I can't believe 15 year old girls want to get their noses pierced and some of their parents are allowing it! I'm almost 22 years old and I can't believe today's youth! Most of you young children shouldn't be going online for "helpful" advice about getting pierced! You should go to a reputable person...do you even know if the people on this website know what they are talking about? My advice for anyone who wants a piercing and is of legal age, ask "real-life" friends for their advice and go to several tattoo and piercing parlors and get a feel for the right atmosphere and right piercer. No matter what, it's going to hurt. You are having a needle shoved through the cartilage in your nose...hardly painless. I would know...I've got some tattoos and piercings. Take care and good luck!

Piercing with a gun is very harmful. It shoves a post in.

Piercing needles are hollow. They remove the tissue, and the piercing jewelry is then inserted into the hole that was created.

I have my nose pierced. It was the most painful thing I have ever had pierced. I'm not going to lie to you. I have a very high tolerance for pain, and the nose piercing created a strong sensation. It's hard to describe. But the pain only lasts for 3 seconds, then once the jewelry is in, the pain stops.

Do not EVER get another piercing, other than ear lobes, done with a gone.

DO NOT pierce yourself. The needles you use to pierce yourself at home are NOT hollow.

DO NOT use a gun. it's blunt force smashing your ear. there's "microspray" -- microscopic bits of tissue and blood and such -- that will fly onto the gun. guns are not cleanable. they are not exact. a needle may sound 'scary.' you're getting a body piercing. you're putting a piece of metal through your skin. so, to be blunt, get over it. get it done right. and that is not possible with a gun. they prolong healing, they are dirty, and they are not exact. any good piercist will not use a gun, it's that simple. i wouldn't want to do this one myself because the nose and the brain share the same blood supply. that puts you at risk for brain damage. you're increasing the risk of that happening greatly when you do it yourself -- spare your brain and spend $40! next, if it gets infected or otherwise goes 'wrong,' get it checked out. if you just take it out, you can trap the infection under the skin where it's much tougher to get at. the infection will be tough to clear up, and it might hurt your brain.

Oh. One more thing. Do it yourself if you must -- for some stupid reason -- DIY. If you have a friend do it and something goes awry, legal problems can ensue. Anything from assault up to murder. So be a friend and do it yourself, or, far better yet, get it done professionally. It's worth the cash.

getting your ears pierced with a gun isn't bad.. i got mine done and the lady did it side ways.. so didn't work out so well then i got one underneath that one after it was healed and it went horribly wrong.. the backing flew off my first one and the post of that one got stuck in my new piercing backing.. it was painful.. they had to rip out my healed earring.. so obviously it got all infected and i had to take it out.. but i recently got it pierced again up top and i cleaned it everyday and now its all healed and I'vechanged it already.. i got it done like 3 months ago.. so i recommend getting a gun because it hurts less and it's not as bad as what some people say.. my friend got it with a needle it was always red.. even tho it was healed it was red and looked sick.

I got my nose done....um about 6 months ago. It healed really quick(2 months total)...To answer everyone's "Question"...about it hurting...It feels like a needle going through your nose...lol...no but really thats what it feels like. YOUR EYES WILL WATER...(ladies don't wear make up..unless u want it to run)...but other then the watering it doesn't hurt THAT BAD....~Just Make Sure You Clean It, And Twist It Every Day~...that is whats most important. I had it done ....5 times before I got it right...The 1st 3 times I did it myself(on the right side)...the 4th time the pro's did it (let me tell u it hurts ALOT less when you have some one else do it for you)..Anyway..the 4th time I got it done it got infected(REALLY BAD)...I don't know y...n the last time(5th)..I got it done by pro's(on the left side)...and I have had it for 6 months. Just make sure you go to a clean shop, and make sure you see them take a sterile needle(or put a sterile needle on the gun)..out of the pack...Remember you can't take the 1'st ring out of your nose, until it heals all the way! So it might be a good idea for you to take the nose ring of your choice to the shop. That months! Really if you take an asprin before you get it done, and relax while getting it way your not stuck with an ugly silver ball. I hope this helps EVERYBODY! Good Luck!...and TRUST ME you WILL look cute with your new nose ring.

i dont have my nose pierced but i'm getting it done the day i get out of school. those of u who want it done with a gun..whether it's steel or regular..i think u should reconsider. a piercing gun is a piercing gun..steel can be sterilized n regular cant. all piercing guns are going to shatter ur cartlidge whether it's meant for ur nose or cartlidge or whatever. needles are painful (i have a fear of needles or shots..but then again most people do..) but it's gonna be worth the pain. my best friend said her's didnt hurt at all when she got her right nostril pierced but my friend david said it killed him cuz he had a larger gauge than normal. i think if u stick with an 18g when getting it pierced u should be fine. different people have different pain tolerance. in response to "elf"..my i'm 15 n my parents werent goin to let me get it done at first but i talked them into it. just explain to ur parents why u want it and try to be calm when talkin to them. they'll eventually give in or otherwise wait. they'll most likely make u take it out if they didnt approve..it's so much better with parent approval just cuz it makes the piercing more enjoyable. if anyone needs clear retainers for school or work i recommend the Quartz glass nostril retainer from Glasswear studio..go to bodyartforms.com n look at retainers..this girls principal checked her nose herself n couldnt see ANYTHING at all! n when u ask about whether it's better to get it pierced with a screw or stud..i think stud is better when getting it pierced but after it heals i think screw would be fine n it wouldnt matter either way. but ur nose is sensitive at first n stud will be a slight bit easier to take out in the beginning. there is a little ball at the end of the nose studs but that..i think..makes it easier than twisting it out at first..but everyone has there own preferences..any questions or wanna talk..bAyBiigUrL2213

Had my nose pierced last night, and it did hurt, normally I have a good tolerance for pain. But I believe because I had a cold prior that this affected the piercing due to my nose being sensitive. I love the way it looks and cannot wait till it is healed so I can get a different nose screw, I do not know the difference in the nose screw, bone, or stud, my piercer recommended a nose screw she said it was safer.

If you would like to do it, I would go for it, I am so happy I did, But remember also keep it clean you do not need an infection.

I got my cartilidge pierced with a gun and it healed just fine. It only took a second. It didn't even hurt that bad and never got really infected. I would definitely recommend using a gun.

Well im getting my nose done, or my lip done. I know I shouldnt get it done with a gun, but the needle scares me too much to even think about. My belly piercing hurt, and the piercer didnt do it properly. So I hear a gun is alot less painful. So tell me, what should I get done??????

How might one go about convincing her parents to allow her to get a nose piercing? Any suggestions? My parents are major conservatives, so it's going to be fairly tough. If anyone has a tactic that they used on their parents PLEASE let me know. I'd be much abliged.

I got my nose pierced...and it wasnt as bad as I thought. He used a needle though, using a gun probably isnt the best idea because it can damage some tissue. And for anyone who is going to get it done, dont worry, its over in 10 seconds. And its worth it! DONT DO IT YOURSELF UNLESS YOU WANT A GAPING HOLE IN UR NOSE.

for everyone getting your nose pierced and wondering if u should have it done with a gun or a needle, i would say a needle because thats what i used when i pierced my own nose and i didn't feel anything at all. and i think that if u use a gun it'd be way to big to fit up anyones nose unless u like have a really big nose. and i pierced my own belly button, i pierced my ears the second time, and i pierced some of my friends ears and noses and they said that it didn't really hurt as bad as people say it does. if anyone wants to talk to me u can hit me up on yahoo (part_time_angel_05_07) msn (bad_gurl_2007@hotmail.com) or aim (mzperfect62189) and ill gladly tell u what u need to know.

I had the top of my ear done about 6 years ago when guns where still legal. It has made no diffence to my piercing's condition and it didn't hurt one bit. It's like getting your ear lobe pierced but it stings for like 5 seconds and then that's it! Beware of hairspray and shampoos though! They sting so bad! Also I wouldn't put any cheap metals in as they irritate it!

hey,
i got my nose pierced on Friday with a gun and they said "take it out in 4 days and it will be fine". so i did that and thats when disaster struck! the little 1 i bought was to little, so i thought "oh no! ooh I'lljust put my stud back in. I went to do that and it got about 3/4 of the way in and then just wouldn't move so i tried a earing, a safety pin and a sewing needle but there just didn't seem to be a hole at the end so i decided to just leave it and wait until it heals then get it re pierced. i would just like to know a few questions please:
when will the hole go away?
should i get it re done with a needle?
does it hurt getting it re done over the scar?
is 4 days to soon?

I had the top of my ear done(cartlidge) with a gun about 3 months ago now I'd say. Anyway, it didn't really hurt me, it felt like a piercing in the lobe of my ear (I had the third holes pierced yesterday!) but after about two weeks it became infected so I had to take it out, and it healed eventually. I think it might not have been real silver, you should try 9ct gold when you get your ears pierced because it's probably less likely for you to get an infection. Also i'm thinking about getting my nose pierced, it would probably be with a gun. Any suggestions?

I got my belly button professionally pierced about 2 months ago.  It hurt for about 2 seconds, then the pain was gone.  Then about a week ago I got my nose professionally pierced by a needle. I'll be honest, it was the worst pain I ever felt in my life... but it was only for a second, then the pain was gone.  So it was worth it to get it done.  But, my cousin pierced her own nose with a needle and now she has a Permanente scar on her nose that is hella huge.  I Recommend getting all piercings done professionally... it hurts way less and the chance of infection is way less.

OK guys...nose piercing. First of all, use a needle for all of the previously listed reasons. Secondly ASK IF THEY CUSTOM FIT the rings you will be getting. Everyone's noses are different so you need something that is made to fit you. And in case you didn't already know, you shouldn't be putting earrings in your noses. Feel free to quiz your piercer on their knowledge of piercing and your nose...they should know and it's your body. Another thing to know is that even when everything is done properly scar tissue may develop. If you have problems go to a piercer first, they are more experienced with piercing complications than your family physician is likely to be. Also please choose a STERILE place that uses proper equipment, ask around.

Last week I had my nose pierced (right side, though IT ABSOLUTELY DOESN'T MATTER WHICH SIDE!!!!) I was pierced with the gun, didn't hurt at all. I would advise you to allow her/him to count to 3, as that was the only thing.. the surprise!!  I had my upper ear done (by gun) didn't hurt, but took long time to heal, and is a bugger when you are too lazy to take out at night! However I am thrilled with this piercing!!!! I have 10 piercing by gun and never had a problem with healing... use your head, use the antiseptics, keep your paws off for awhile after piercing is done and ENJOY!  THIS IS A TRUTHFUL ANSWER FROM A MOTHER OF A 20 year old son, who is TERRIFIED OF NEEDLES!!!!

I ran across this site and am horrified. As an apprentice piercer I have a few things to say; don't do the gun. It's the worst thing you could ever do to yourself. The stud can not possibly be sharper than the needle and the needle is hallow which means the piercing has a cleaner hole. And for all the people who are asking if it hurts. Yes, you're putting a sharp object through your body. I for one know that it hurt so bad that I went back and got 8 more piercings. If you can't take a little pain, find a new hobby; piercing may not be for you. And for all of you who have done it yourself to "save some money" if you can't pay the $40, you're not responsible enough to get it done; get a job, think about getting the piercing and remember; THIS IS PERMANENT! No piercing can ever heal completely after it's completely healed, the SCAR WILL ALWAYS BE THERE even if it's just a little one.

Stud vs. Needle

A properly done piercing is performed using a hollow needle that is extremely sharp. It has a beveled edge that creates a very neat, clean slice in the tissue. This leaves the area with very little damage or trauma, allowing for the easiest healing and minimal complications as well as less pain for a shorter period of time.

A piercing gun uses a dull stud that punches through the ear by sheer force. Look closely at the end of a piercing stud and it is obvious just how dull it is. Remember that you can sleep on these studs without cutting your neck. Because the stud is dull, it rips through the tissue, causing major tearing, trauma and compaction in the tissue. This will lead to a longer healing time and increased risk of building up excessive scar tissue in and around the piercing. It also causes more irritation and swelling, leading to more pain for an extended period of time.

Excessive scar tissue can cause problems for those that intend to, or decide to stretch their piercings to larger gauges. Some find that it hinders stretching, or even makes it impossible. It will often cause the stretching process to be much slower and involved than normal to allow the scar tissue time to soften and the stretch to heal properly.

I just got my nose done today and after having my nipples done, this was a breeze.  It didn't hurt at all...getting my ears done hurt worse than this.  Don't be afraid, I have a low pain tolerance and I have 3 piercings already.  Good luck and Happy Piercing!

I've had a couple of friends pierce their noses themselves, and they said it didn't hurt at all really.  they haven't had any infections or anything. but you should definitely get it pierced with a needle, not a gun..i got my cartilage pierced with a gun and it hurt like heck, still gets infected and stuff from time to time. pierced my other ear cartilage myself with a safety pin, didn't hurt at all and never gets infected.  hope this helped you guys! :]

Hey yo... i had my cartilage done and it didn't hurt but the gun leaves a bump on the back of your ear.  it is better to get a needle done.  It just slides right thought. But go to a good tattoo place.  They are awsome.  Go to www.sinkin-ink.com

Never, never allow anyone to use a gun. the needle causes less tissue trauma,reduces the risk of scarring and if instructions by a well trained "Tech" are followed risk of infection can be minimal. Always ask if the environkment is sterile, how long the person has been piercing, if a fresh needle is used. the "tech" should first ask if you are allergic to latex, and put on the appropriate sterile gloves. you should see them remove the needle from the sterile packaging and the same goes for the SURGICAL STEEL nose RING that will be worn after the piercing. a stud should never be worn in the fresh wound, which is exactly what has been created. The area should be cleaned with mild or anti-biotic soap twice daily. flush the area regularly with saline solution. Never make your own saline unless a health practitioner instructs you how, as table salt has fillers in it that can cause infection. Saline that is used to rinse contact lenses is perfect. Hepatitis is on the rise in the piercing world. You have to be an informed consumer and ask any questions, when it comes to piercings no question is a stupid one when you are trying to protect yourself.

I have my nose pierced on my left n I'm straight of course.

My friend got her nose pierced on her right. She just send me some pics of her piercing via email. I couldn't believe it. I know (or thought)shes straight but shes got it on her right. I emailed her telling her what I thought...(OMG blah blah blah don't tell me your gay)Don't tell me its on the right blah blah!!

And she emailed me today saying "yeah its the right"

I emailed her back "oh no i never knew u were a lez"

I heard that if you get your nose pierced on the left your straight n if its on the right your gay. Is that true? I'm sorta really sure it is cause this girl who's surely not straight has it on her right and everyone in my school tells me its like that.

Email me @ Annfarham@yahoo.com about what you think!

I got my nose pierced 2 months ago and got a small bump by the hole. My boyfriend told me to pop it. I told him no, that's a bad idea. It will just get irritated. Then I, stupidly enough, decided it was a good idea. He sterilized a safety pin and together, we 'popped' it...It didn't really pop. It got red, then white. I had to take out the nosering. Some questions:

Will I get brain damage?

Should I break up with my boyfriend?

I  have a job interview tomorrow. Will I look normal?

I got my nose pierced yesterday, and it hurt...but not that bad and it was only for like 15 seconds. today it only hurt when i woke up, ( i probably slept on it ) but it doesn't hurt anymore...and i love it! and if your going to get it done 1.) DO NOT do it yourself! Go to a professional! 2.) make sure that its being done with a needle, NOT a gun...guns are dirty and can not be sterilized. Also, with a needle it goes a LOT faster.

hi this is to "princess_alyssa10@hotmail.com"....ok u said that the gunn is 100%  safer, im srry but u are 100% wrong. the gun leaves large bumps and takes much longer to heal. almost everyone who gets their nose done with a gun gets infected, this is becuzz the gun cannot be starilized, its a different story if your using a steel gun, cuzz they can be sterilized. but guns can do some serious damage to the cartilage in your nose so i dont recomend getting it done with a gun. of course a gun is less painful, but i'drather go through the pain of a needle then go through the pain of an infection. so hopefully sum pplz take my advece just dont get it done with the gun because there are too many risks!

DO NOT GET PIERCED WITH A GUN!!! I cannot stress this enough!  A piercing gun cannot be properly sterilized, and it also causes a lot more trauma to the piercing site than getting pierced with a needle.  That means LESS PAIN, and FASTER HEALING when it is done with a needle. Also, DO NOT PIERCE YOURSELF!  I pierced my own cartilage before, and it caused a large keloid to the piercing, because it was done with a sewing needle, and not the proper equipment.  Do yourself a favor and spend the extra money to get it done properly, with a needle and by a trained professional!!!  Oh, and it wasn't that painful at all when I got my nose done with a needle at the tattoo parlor.  It made my eyes water, thanks to natural reflexes, but other than that it was nothing. I have also gotten my bellybutton and tongue pierced too.  It didn't hurt at all for my bellybutton, and my tongue hurt worse than my nose, but that's just me.  Happy Piercing!

First off, nose piercing DO hurt. Not gonna lie. My eye (yes, one eye) was watering SOOO badly. And, for the whole day, any time I touched it, or brushed against it, it hurt like hell. I just got it done yesterday. Anyway, today it's not that bad at all. A little sore, but thats it. I have to say, it hurt more then my tongue!

Ok, second thing, gun vs needle. No matter how you get it done, it's still gonna scar. But, it's called make up. And, chances are, the scars not going to be bad at all. I've seen them. So, it's call make up if it really bothers you THAT much.

Also, the gun, whether it uses a sharp or blunt earing, STILL damages tissue.

Either way, a needle is recommended. I mean, think of it this way. Technically, they'd STILL be stabbing something through your nose. A sort of needle. May as well go with the needle if it's better for you.

alright everyone. I JUST pierced my nose, yes, by myself. I still can't believe I did it..But i'mso glad I did! I did it with a needle. Just a regular needle. I steralized it for about 10 minutes, iced my nose for about 2, and just..starting shoving the needle through. I was so lightheaded...it feels kinda gross feeling the needle tear through your flesh. ;) But it didn't really hurt...just..kinda gross lol...It didn't even bleed. I did it right which I'm thankful for. But honestly...piercing your own nose yourself, isn't safe for everyone...i did it because i have a steady hand, and i can take a lot of pain...I recommend getting it done by a pro, but yeah. I can't even feel my nose piercing. it isn't even red. =) It doesn't hurt when i twist it or anything...so...people who would like to pierce their nose, go right ahead. =) Just be careful...and make sure you don't bleed. xD

Getting cartlidge pierced with a gun can cause damage and leaves you with more scar tissue. The healing time is often way longer and the piercing is often way more painful afterwards.
I would suggest getting it pierced with a needle because the healing time is much faster and there are alot less side effects.
The pain of getting is pierced with a needle is about the same as getting it pierced with a gun, but the needle doesn't have a continuous "sting" afterwards, the area is not as tender and the healing time is alot faster.

I got my nose pierced in January i suggest u get it done with a needle. ITs much better n better for the nose. Also get a straight nose ring not a curved one. Because a curved one is gaged alittle bit and since it curves to help prevent it from falling out it KILLS so bad when u go to get ur nose stud changed. So i suggest a straight one.

im answering to "yo"... i got 2 piercins in "the top of my ear" (cartilage) and im telling you that it doesnt hurt as much as people say it does. IM SUPER SCARED OF NEEDLES TO!! but i mean the best advice i can give ya is be strong, only get it if you know ya want it, you know you can take care of it, and if ull get it done professionally. it really really helps if u have a friend or family member there to hold ur hand. (squeeze theres tight!!) and last but not least im telling u that yea... it does hurt... but just a little. i thought whoa this kinda sucks, ut hey there are things that are far far worse. BE STRONG!! GO GET PIERCINGS!!

i love having my nose pierced WARNING my friend did mine and its fine now but in the beginning it got infected because i went swimming in kings creek so my advice is don't go swimming in dirty water before it is healed and don't play with it all of the time and last is clean it everyday with alcohol. if you got any ?s just email me at natas_wicca_lover@yahoo.com

Ell, i seriously would'ntworry about getting your belly button pierced. They DONT use guns for that, they do it with a needle. I had mine done on holiday and its better to have it done in proffesional places tho( i went to spain. i cud not even feel them preparing my belly coz they dont have a limit of how much freeze spray they can use, u have no feeling at all!  but it will be pierced with a ring, not a bar normally its preferred that way.  only takes a few weeks to heal.  (i live in england)  my friend had it done in england tho and they dont always use spray and she said it hurt like bloody hell!  i was sat outside, i heard her scream, but honestly shes a drama queen, i go light headed at the sight of needles and i had it done so its ok! :)

I got the top of my ear done with a gun and it looks awesome! I did get a bump there once but it ALWASY goes away, trust me... u have to be a moron to let it get infected and let it stay, just always clean it and if it does get a bump put on some antibiotic ointment, its not that bad at all and heals quickly!


im getting my nose peirced and i was wondering if I go to a tatto parlor, if they have a gun cause i really dont want a needle!

Well I had my nose peirced yesterday, with a gun, I dont really care what it does, my nose is fine, still sore, but thats expected, and so what if they use the same gun on everyone? it's not the gun thats going into your skin is it, it's the nose ring, I would'nt have it done with a needle if the person doing it payed ME! Well my opinion is there, ignore it if you wish. But a gun is just as safe as a needle.

Well you guys I just got my nose pierced about 2 days ago by the gun and this damn thing still hurts. Getting it done with the gun didn't really hurt at all but your eyes will water a lot. So get it done if you want to with a gun or not just make sure the place that you get it done at is red cross approved.(meaning they're clean)
p.s
I want to change my nose ring and it is only the 2nd day. the one that was put in my nose is really big and I want to put  in a smaller one. can i do it now or should i wait?

i got my cartlidge in my ear done with a gun, and it never healed. i eventually just took it out b/c like 7 months after getting it, it hurt to touch it, when i cleaned it, it would bleed, and it always had that "bump" that someone mentioned about their nose. i got my nose done my a professional at a tatoo/piercing place. it only hurt a teeny tiny bit; not enough to make me cry or pass out or anything. i definately recommend that over doing it yourself or with a gun. if you're worried about some "stranger" putting holes in your body, it's their job. They're professionals for a reason, and i'm sure if you're doing it yourself, you don't have much experience, if any. and it's a hell of a lot safer as far as sterilized materials go, and it heals better, and there are just too many good reasons to go to a professional who doesn't use a gun, versus doing it yourself or with one of those retarded guns

For ALL of your information, I got my nose done about two months ago and it felt like someone took there finger nail and pressed hard at my nose. I teared up and it bled a bit. I must say, I didn't think it hurt much at all. I got it done with a screw and find it easy to clean, but it can be uncomfortable because the screw can pop out of your nose and you feel like you have to constantly touch it, though if I had to do it again, I would choose the screw again.  But I think it is more personal as to what you want. I just did not want a ring in my nose, maybe you do? The needle isn't scary either, i am really scared of needles as well and frankly, you never even see it and it is very quick. I also got my cartilage done with a needle and on the other side with a gun. The pain is no different and personally, I prefer the needle even though it costs more because you can put whatever gauge you want in it and you know you are getting it done professionally unlike Claire's or something like that. As long as you clean your piercing like you are supposed to, everything should be fine.

BUT guns should only be used on ears and nose's! not lips, tounges, eybrows, cheeks or anywhere else!!!

heyy everyone.. here are some tips for you to look out or if you are getting your nose pierced.. i got mine done yesterday and my mom works at a tatoo and piercing parlour.

* use a needle (never a gun)better in the long run and gun hurs more than needle anyway

*tatoo and piercing parlos are the place to go because they have had the most experience and will help you through it if you are scared.

*think about it.. if you really want this done its not even 10 seconds worth of pain

*clean it to the best of your ability with pharmacist salt and water on a q-tip 3 times a dayy!!! (if u want it to heal properly)

*never touch your [piercing except when cleaning with a q-tip cuz bacteria on your hands will lead to an infection.

*if it gets badly infected call the place where you got it pierced right away!

*take care of it and follow all of these rules.. im sure it looks gorgeous good luck! :) ohh yahh. it doesn't hurt very much with a needle!! and im a big baby

I got my nose pierced with a needle and it honestly didn't hurt at all, so anyone who's worrying about if it hurts, in my opinion it doesn't in anyway. and as for cartilage I have two of them and I did them myself with a safety pin and it didn't hurt at all so I would think that getting it done by someone who is trained would be painless as well, just a lot faster .

My belly didn't hurt much, it just felt like a pinch. How much does the nose piercing hurt to get done? I can take pain, but i get a little nervous if its too much.

OMG HELLO ppl guns are NOT that bad hello i did mine with a gun and we are not trained for a week we take months training for needles tattoos piercing with guns and needles many ppl like the needle and another fact they do not use a dull blunt edge its a sharp tip if you take it out you would have noticed..... guns are faster and they do not shatter anything a needle would in fact do the same thing it would not just make a ghost hole which is painless no i dont think so yes it heals faster and removes the skin but after 2 days you wont feel the gun and you could remove the nose stud. I have had no complaints to put parlor and our guns are perfectly sterilized we send them away to get sterilized and now we use metal ones which after every use they go and stick them in our boiling unit so before you tell me how we run our parlor do a bit of looking around actually asking decent places instead of looking things up in the Internet which are half true half false lies

Hey i wanted my nose pierced and i got it done now but i had hell with mine, i got my nose pierced bout 8pm and it was fine and it looked really kl,i cleaned it b4 i went to bed gave it a little twist and made sure it was OK then went to sleep, i went to sleep on my back so i didn't knock it but that night it got caught on something y i was sleeping and it came out and because i had just had it pierced bout 3 hours ago the back sealed up so i started panicing and tryin to push it through that didnt work and i needed to calm down so i decided to try again the nxt day and it wouldnt go through so i went bac to salon and they repierced it but because i had been pushin it ,it had swelled up so it wouldnt go through so they tried again but my nose had gone hard round the piercin and wouldnt let any ting through so they told me to leave it a week and i got it pierced again the followin sat and it only hurt a tiny bit more than the first time i had got it pierced and the first time didnt hurt at all. so if u wonna get ur nose done go for it and if it comes out y ur sleepin dont panic just get ur stud and see if it will slide back in if it doesnt dont panic and start pushin cause it will just swell up leave it till the nxt day go bac to where u got it pierced tell them wot happened and they can just repierce it for u through the same hole and everything and by the way guns dont hurt and the piercer can see where their piercin coz they got it through the same hole in my nose twice XxXxXxXxXxX

I would definately say get it done with a needle. I had my nose pierced 2 months ago with a gun but since then i have been researching piercing cos i want to get my tongue done also and i have read loads of bad stuff about piercing guns. They damage the tissue because its shot thru so quickly and other things like that

everyone keeps asking if it flippin hurts!! of course it is, ur either shoveing a needle through or shattering ur cartlage with a gun. get over it! if u dont like pain - dnt get it done! simple enough! if u think a bit of pain it worth it, then go for it, and stop winging! can u imagine how often tattooist n piercing studios hear the question..does it hurt? dah!

Ok i got my nose done twice once with a gunna nd once with a needle. It hurts more with the gun...Because with the needle it is taken skin out with a gun it is just moving it aside...And umm if ur gunna get ur nose done most places give u a Screw, there are alot better to heal with...When u get it done it will swell don't worry about it, It may look like the stud is going into ur nose, don't worry it is totally normal...

hahha...everyone is freaking out! i got my nose pierced 6 weeks ago at a tattoo and piercing parlor with a very good reputation. i got it done with a needle, as all body piercings are meant to be done. whoever said that the gun shatters the cartilidge is 100% correct...i have gotten gun AND needle piercings, and i guarantee that the gun piercing will take forever to heal, and leave you with scar tissue. as for the pain issue, it is NOTHING. i have a very low pain threshold, and when i got the needle put through it, it was like a pinch, or getting a facial...and you should always get it pierced with a nose SCREW...they are easy to clean, and safe...i hope i helped! more questions? shortstuf21 is my screen name

Hey guys, Yes putting a needle through your nose hurt lol. If you have nerves it's going to hurt, it was my 9th piercing and they all hurt lol. And FYI guns are bad they shatter cartilage and don't make it better. Just go to a good piercing studio and get it done by a needle. Make sure you shop around first and ask people so you go to a good place.

hey, im about to get my nose pierced but im not willing to pay that much money. theres a place in my mall that does it with a gun for 10 bucks but its with a gun and an earing (not a nose ring). i was thinking about doing it myself with a needle. ive already pierced my cartilage and my third hole in my ears by myself with a needle. the cartilage never healed so i had to remove it. cartilage piercings dont go well in my family, they just dont heal. so what do you think? the nose has the same cartilage,s o should i take my chances?

I got my nose done earlier this year. It didn't really hurt much and i was proud of the result. I had mine done with the gun too. But then i had school and had to take it out so it ended up closing so i repierced it myself. I wouldn't recommend piercing your nose yourself because it hurts soooo bad and it's quite hard. I would definitely say naval piercings hurt more than nose piercings..from experience.

I don't know why anyone would pierce themselves with any type of piercing except maybe the ears and that is pushing it. I have a total of 28 piercings. 11 in my ears, nose, tongue, labret, nipples 2 each and a 10 piece corset on my back. When I was 15, I attempted to pierce my own belly button with a gun and it go sooo infected and filled with puss and I ended up in the hospital. I would NOT recommend it with any part of the body. With different areas on the body, if you hit the wrong area, many things can happen.
1) If hit the wrong vein you can bleed to death
2) If you hit the wrong area in the ear you can paralyze yourself
3) Infected nose piercings can cause brain damage.
These are only a few of the things. Piercings honestly need to be taken very seriously. If anything, make friends with a piercer, get the hook up. At least be safe about it. Body modifications can be fatal. That's why you need to be a certain age because you have to sign a release form or your parents have to sign. Just in case things happen because even veteran piercers can screw up.

Do not get the top of your ear pierced with a gun there is a 80 percent chance that if you get the top of your ear pirced with a gun it will get infected. It will most likely shater the cartilage aswell so its not a good idea

Umm....im 13 and Ive pierced my nose myself 2Ce and now I'm going to get it done Professionally. the ones i did myself seemed to hurt alot and took longer(i felt i couldn't trust myself) so i wouldn't recommend anyone to do it themselves unless their 100% certain and they have the right stuff to do it with. Ive already Decided to have my 1st Professional nose piercing with a gun, a. because its cheaper and b. because i think i could handle the pain more.  
I'm usually OK with piercings, i already have 8. The most painful one was my belly bar which put me off needle piercings, the pain was immense. I think ill cope well with the gun, two of my friends have had their noses done at the Studio i plan to go to, and both of theirs was fine and apparently 'Painless' On the other hand, My own mother went to this exact studio a couple of years ago to get her nose pierced and she said the pain was complete agony. I don't know who to belive so instead of daunting on Others opinions, I'm going to go for it. my only worry is that ill regret it. ill leave Feedback when Ive had the Piercing, Wish Me Luck!

dear Ell, i got my belly button pierced last christmas, and i have to say it was the most painful thing i've ever done, but i've never broken a bone(touch wood) and i've got a veeery low pain threshold!!the pain only lasts a few seconds, and after that it just aches a little. i was mor cautious than i need to be. just make sure you eat alot before becoz i felt nauseous afterwards!! take a couple of paracetamol before to numb the pain and some more a bit later and you should be alright. mine is absoloutley fine now!!

i am going to get my nose pierced and was wondering if you have to get the stub first and then can put in a ring.  i heard a lot of places only do it this way because it causes less swelling, but you have to get them pierced in different spots depending on whether it is a stud or a ring.

I had my nose pierced about 4 weeks ago with a gun. with the gun that was used on me... it was a one time use gun... it was in a sealed package and then it was thrown away after it was pierced. And it didn't hurt at all. I mean seriously, I was freaking out... they had to wait like 15 minutes before I gave them the ok to actually shoot the gun... because I had heard it was the worst pain ever... but then it was easier then getting the cartilage on your ear pierced to me... but as it appears... I think everyone is evidentially different and I'm sure it has alot to do with where you hit on the nose and what you end up piercing through.... right after it was done it wasn't even sore and I LOVE it! However... I have been cleaning it with alcohol.. and everyone tells me I'm not supposed to... but I really don't want it to get infected... and my skin is already senesitve... I asked why I shouldn't and they said it just irritates it too badly... however... it doesn't bother me... maybe I have a high pain tolerance... I'm not sure... but could someone please explain this to me... thanks...

A lot of people that I know got their nose done with a needle and they didn't have any problems but then a lot of people got it done with a gun and it shattered the cartilage and there was always a bump them so they just took it out. It's really up to you of what you want to do with it but I would try the aspirin thing first before you take it out. Good Luck!!!

Hey, i got my cartilage done with a gun in grade 8 or 9 and im in 2nd year uni now, and i still have problems with it.  It has a bump on the back of it..and it still hurts every once in a while.  I definately say get it done with a needle.  Piercings dont hurt at all.  I just got my nose pierced with a needle 2 days ago (and i love it) and it didnt hurt at all.  I was so scared! Im a big chicken.  Im terrified of needles! honestly, but i just went for it. Go for it! u wont regret it!

what are the negative effects of getting your nose pierced by a needle? someone above wrote about how guns are bigger so you can't see exactly where you are putting it, and they are plastic so you cant sterilize them, etc etc.

where can you buy good nose rings for sensitvie skin? i just want a cute stud or something.

Hi, I want to get my nose pierced, but I don't know which side to pierce. Ordinarily, I would just pierce either side, but I have a mole (Monroe style) on my right side. Should I pierce my left nostril, or my right; which would be just kitty corner to my "beauty mark." HELP!?!
You can email me @ crinklebug@hotmail.com
P.S.: I had it done years ago, with a gun, at a concert, but let it grow in when my mom wouldn't stop crying...now I'm an adult and my husband realllly wants me to redo it, I'm just not sure of which side...the gun didn't hurt, just startled me.

Well, i got my nose pierced with a needle three weeks ago.  I have had my ears pierced many times, some by myself; i have also had my nipple and my tongue pierced by pros. It certainly hurt, BUT within about 10 or 15 minutes the sting went away, within about an hour, the pain even from moving my nose was gone, and from then till now it barely hurts at all.  Sometimes it itches, which just means it needs to be cleaned.  Yes it hurt (I swore) and yes it stung, but the healing period this far has been relatively painless, including the brief time when i thought it was getting infected.  It just depends on the person and on how well you take care of it.  Definitely go with a needle from a professional piercer and make sure they unwrap it from it's sterile packaging in front of you.  They have experience and are doing a job they love, instead of just being some 17 year old who is getting paid 6 dollars an hour at Claire's or whatever.

ive had quite a few piercings, all done with needles and they've been absolutely fine.

but girls - seriously - if you want a piercing, go to someone who knows what they're doing. doing it yourself is just plain stupidity.

needles are safer than guns, as explained in previous posts.

and the little blisters that sometimes come up on the hole can be fixed using SEA SALT, not regular table salt, and some lukewarm water. use some cotton buds to throughly clean the area but dont take the stud/ring out because it only slows down the healing process.

and of course getting any piercing is guna hurt for a short while - a hole is being pierced into your skin to put a metal bolt through it...

I just pierced my own nose 2 days ago. It didn't hurt bad. I am scared of needles, so i went to the store a bought a new nose ring. Then I boiled it and a regular earing on the stove. I then pushed the regular one half way through, and the last layer hurt, so I used the nose ring. I put peroxide on it and take good care of it. If you are like me and are nervous of needles, do what I say.

HELP! I have a question! I got my nose pierced 3 months ago and I only kept my stud in for a while because it healed. And ever since then I wore those thin diamond studs. The other day I bought some nose rings and they were the kind that were straight with the little bulge at the end so it will stay in. But it won't go through my nose! My old stud is really thick and know that won't go in! Is it grown over to fit only small size nose studs? HELP me. I am frustrated!

i pierced my nose maself, and then (with a different needle) i pierced ma m8s. We've had them for about half a year, they never got infected, and it didnt hurt one bit. i dont regret it at all as we took the right precations, such as steralising the needles etc, and the  stud and getting the stuff to wash it with after.
but everyone has different pain thresholds, so just becoz it didnt hurt us, doesnt mean it wont hurt you, but its worth it coz it luks ace!

hey, in response to Jess, who wrote a response to Mir about nickel free/lead free earrings and nose rings...

my ears react TERRIBLY to surgical steel, which  Jess suggested that Mir use... one of the reasons my skin is so allergic to it is that surgical steel contains quite a lot of nickel.

probably the safest materials out there for people with sensitive skin would be gold or titanium.

you always have to be REALLY careful when choosing jewelry for ANY piercings. do some research, and dont ever take chances.

especially with nose rings and other facial piercings, infections can lead to permanant scarring, or brain damage, as mentioned before.

I want to get my nose pierced really badly but my parents are totally against it, even though when I get it done I'll be in college. I'm seriously considering doing it anyways, and I want it to have healed before I go home for Thanksgiving. I hear that with a needle it takes much less time to heal, and is generally better for the cartilage in your nose. However, I'm really scared of needles and don't know if I can handle the pain of it, and would much rather get it done using a gun. I read on here that somebody is getting it done at a dermatologists office with a steel gun? If any one has any advice for me about the healing process, a way to hide it from my parents, etc etc, feel free to let me know! AIM me on dAnCEaDDicT123 PLEASE. kthxbye.

Okay kids listen up here are some facts:

Needle is safer because A. It will be a new disposable one that is only going to get used on you. B. Its more precise. C. Its sharp.

the studs they use with guns are not sharp. Sure they may look sharp but just think of it this way if you press the tip against your finger it might poke a little but not much else. Unless you use a great amount of force its not going to draw blood. now a needle on the other hand I don't recommend you try that unless you want to draw blood.

with the gun, because it uses such force to jam that ring in your cartilage there is more of a possibility of harming said cartilage. You could end up with an ugly keloid.(basically raised scar tissue)

now we go into sanitation. what would you rather use: a disposable fork or a fork that some has been touching?  you don't know what people have, whether they washed their hands or not or whatnot.  So why would you want to use something that many people have probably already touched. You don't know where that gun has been. needles come in a sterile package that the piercer opens in front of you.

there are some things for you guys to think about before you get anything done.
any questions, comments or whatever

I was scared to death when i got it pierced...when she put alcohol on my nose I jumped like i got pinched in the booty!! lol!! I will admit I did cry but it was just because I was scared and I was basically crying before I got peirced!! OKKKK SOO ENUFF BLABBERING....IF YOU WANT IT DONE AND THE FEAR OF PAIN IS STOPPING YOU...DONT LET IT...KUS IT DOESNT HURT ONE BIT!!!! 2 THUMBS UP AND 2 BIG TOES UP ALSO ON MY END!!!

Okay, I am not a professional in anyway, but I can tell you what I know from experience. I have had 3 of my friends get their nose done professionally with a gun. One of them passed out, the other one couldn't breath normally for about 2 full mins, and the last one fell off the chair. In their opinion, and mine, it hurts too much and is too hard on your nose. I pierced my nose myself yesterday with a needle and it is doing fine. I am cleaning it with alcohol and neosporin. Quite frankly, I think it is best to be shown what to do by someone who knows what they are doing, and then do it yourself. You are more aware of how fast you need to take it and whether or not it is a too far of an angle than someone else. To me it didn't hurt while I was piercing it, putting in the stud hurt a little but no biggie. You don't really feel it until the morning.

Needles are better, for all you wondering. I have my septum, corset piercings on my back and 8 piercings on one ear. Guns are just crazy, and i'venever used one. For all you that want to "convince your parents" to let you get a piercing...just wait till you're 18, no rush.

i have 13 piercings to date. I'm 17. I have 3 pairs up the top of both ears, soooo does NOT hurt..truthfully!! its done with a gun, quick n easy. All main ear piercings are done with a gun. I got my tragus done (the catilage flap on side of face in ear) did not hurt at all in fact, this was done with a needle, they stick popstick underneath so it doesnt stab ur inner ear...belly button...once again..DID NOT HURT.used a needle, very clean and sanitised. Got my nose done 2day...probably the only one that was a tiny bit painful..which i didnt expect, considering belly button and tragus were supposedly meant to hurt, but they didnt.They used a gun for my nose...not sure if they were meant to, but they've been doing it for many years. My eyes watered just as a reaction, but pain is not unbearable, just a quick thing. I recommend all!!

I had my nose pierced yesterday and it didn't hurt that bad, I'mnot saying that it didn't hurt, because it did, I had it done with a needle. If you get it done just take a deep breath and close your eyes. The reason why your eye's water it because of all the pressure. It's not that bad, clean it with anti-bacterial soap and water.

Just get your nose pierced somewhere clean and well recommended. You shouldn't do it yourself.. the blood vessels in your nose are the same as the ones in your brain, so.. yeah. Could cause damage if you don't do it somewhere proper. And all nose piercing does is make your eyes water for a second or two, it's not painful at all. It's a tight pinch, and then it's done. Don't be so scared!

Hey everyone, i have seven piercings now, and three of them have been done with a needle- i think a needle is fine, just close your eyes, tell the PROFESSIONAL PIERCER that you don't want to hear about or see the needle and it's all good. i must admit that the nose piercing was the most painful, but even then it hardly hurt at all.

I really dont think that a gun is a very good idea for an other part of your body except for your earlobes, and even with a needle, my nose, naval and top of my ear only took less than 5 seconds each for the needle to go through- if you ask me there is a lot more messing around with a gun than a needle....

I was browsing some piercing informational sites to catch some urban myths or mistruths about certain types of body piercing.

I've been a professional body piercing specialist for the last 8 years. I've worked in clean shops from New York to LA, and I was shocked to hear some of the unbacked advice and information being given and used in this forum.

1. It is true that the nose band brains share several small veins and capillaries. That being said, humans having closed circulatory systems and a central heart means you don't have much more chance of acquiring brain damage from a nose piercing than you do a nipple piercing. Furthermore, there have been no documented studies of ANYONE suffering brain damage from a nose piercing.

2. Several people have echoed this lie. Piercing guns are not safe. Serious infection can occur, especially if the gun is used to pierce anything but the soft tissue around the ear lobe. There have also been documented cases of the transmission of serious blood diseases (including HIV) from the use of dirty guns. Remember... guns are plastic, and CANNOT be properly sterilize in an autoclave (a device much like a pressure cooker that uses heat and steam to sterilize metal, surgical-grade equipment).

I would always recommend finding a professional body piercer who has been at his craft for several years before putting holes in your body. If you absolutely must do the piercing(s) yourself, take some good advice and order reputable, hermetically sealed and sterilized hollow piercing needles (I'd recommend 18 to 16 gauge for most starter piercings), a large quantity of alcohol swabs, and possibly a good set of forceps and receiving tubes, although these last two are not really a requirement. You can find all of this equipment on eBay for less than $20. A small price to pay for your continued health.

Also, please remember good aftercare. Regular cleaning (2 to 3 times a day, at least) of your piercing with a mild anti-bacterial soap, moving the jewelry in and out to make sure the inner-piercing gets nice and clean. Different types of piercings require different healing times, so research the time requirement for your individual piece of art.

I hope this has been informative... and I hope it keeps some of you from doing something you might regret in the near future.



Thanks,

I got my ear done in the cartilage a couple months ago..people were telling me that it hurts horribly but when she had actually done it..i didn't even know. It bled a little but nearly no pain for me
maybe i have a high pain threshold but i didn't feel a thing
And yesterday i got my nose pierced with a gun and that didn't hurt either..probably even less than the ear, the only thing that scared me was the sound of the gun
And normally i would have looked for a piercer that used a needle, but the place i was at was very clean.and i don't really care about scars

hey girls i have had my nose pierced for a month now and i say if anyone wants a nose piercing get it done with the needle NOT a gun because the gun shoots a blunt nose ring into your nose thats why you get the lumps because it is skin being forced outwards but with a needle they just pierce right through if anyone wants anymore questions answered about a nose, belly or ear piercings just ask :)

I would recommend getting a nose piercing done with a needle since guns have been proven to be more dangerous.

Getting your nose pierced doesn't hurt for more than a split second and your eyes water as a reflex because of the needle piercing close to the tear duct.

I would not recommend piercing your nose yourself or having a friend do it.

And yes, you need to have a parent or guardian 18 or older to go with you since you need to have papers authorized before getting your piercing.

Just to clear up all of the questions here...
I am a professional piercer, i'vebeen doing piercings for 5 years +. You should never get a piercing done with a gun, especially cartilage piercings, but including earlobes as well, because all a gun does is rips flesh and cartilage. People get lucky with getting they're earlobes pierced with a gun because the tissues there are so soft that a jagged hole can still heal to some extent. However, if you get your nose pierced with a gun, or any other cartilage, it wont heal correctly, 90% of the time it will get infected, and you more than likely will develop a ceyloid (the fatty lumps some cartilage piercings develop) If you've already chose to get one done with a gun and your having problems with it, chances are you will always have problems with it. Best thing for you to do is to take it out, let it heal completely, and get it professionally done with a needle... One other thing for those of you that think guns hurt less than needles, think about what your saying! Does jamming a rough shaft through your nostril, while shattering the cartilage underneath sound and less painful than creating a smooth cut through the skin while leaving the cartilage intact? Where the problem lies is places like Clair's and all the other places in your local mall have no professional experience, they just see money, are you really willing to take a chance with something thats going to become a semi-permanent part of you? Leave piercings to the professionals, thats what we dedicate years of our lives to knowing...

piercing with a needle and a gun don't leave that type of impression.. here's how it really works.. With my 10+ years experience as a body mod artist (body piercing), i've come to find that the garage piercers that do nose jobs with guns leave scar tissue because of the punch, close fast due to hole size/etc, infect easier, puncture capillaries which leaves red lines on your face, and in a whole is just a bad idea period because of all that crap that goes along with it. needles are more fluid, if done correctly no other nasty scars or blood lines will be visible even when you decide to take it out, over all are more sterile (because you can't completely sterilze a gun no matter what you do), and heal faster and easier with proper care. do some studying before posting.

I did my cartilage myself last year with a thumbtack and i hardly felt it at all. Of course I iced it before hand, but still pain free. I was thinking about doing my nose by myself but read the brain damage comments left by you guys..ugh I'm reconsidering

Hey everyone! I really want my nose done and i was wondering approximately how much does it cost? And does having your nose pierced affect you alot and fell really gross when you have a cold? And does it hurt more than your belly button because i got my belly pierced 2 weeks ago and it didn't really hurt so I'm wondering if your nose hurts more. And i'm going to pierce the top of my ear in a couple days and they're probably going to use a gun.. is that safe? if someone could please respond or email me at kiwi_cutie13@hotmail.com that would be great thank you!!

to Steph, it doesn't hurt that bad through most of your nose, the worst part is the inner layer of skin and cartilage because the interior of your nose is so sensitive. If you get it done, use a gun---make sure they know what they are doing so it isn't in the wrong spot. I got mine done with a needle and it takes longer, so the pain is longer, also, the odds are that you will bleed as much as a regular nose bleed if you use a needle.

Hey all, I got my nose pierced 4th of July weekend, and It's either really perfect or really bad, no in betweens. I got it done with a needle, which is much more painful than a gun, but it is relatively safer, I did lots of homework. It isn't even about cleanliness of the gun, but my piercer was saying that because of placement of the piercing with the gun it has decreased blood flow. My friend that came with me to get it done had her nose pierced with a gun, so she was very interested in this as well. Right now my nose is kind of infected and I'm kind of scared.. I hear all this stuff about brain damage.. As far as I've read its best to keep it in and I take it out twice a day to clean it. Some advice- use H2Ocean spray on it, purified salt water. its awesome! Well If anyone has any other advice about my (hopefully not too bad) infection feel free to post or email me at vocalize08@hotmail.com!

Hey guys!!I have to say out of all my piercings the nose was the worst.And I have my navel,tongue,both nipples(witch i had done the same day as my nose),also 3 holes in each ear.It hurt a little more than a bee sting.But the up side to it is it's not been even 24 hours and it feels so much better than it did.So if your worried about having it done right then go to a piercing studio and have it done with a needle.It's alot safer then doing it yourself or using a gun to do it.And the hollow needle they use helps you from getting a real bad infection,and allows new tissue to grow.And with any piercing,depending on your skin type,can leave a scare.

I got the top of my ear done today, it hurt for a split second, you can feel it going through and then it when really hot and red straight away. But, it went back to normal pretty quickly. I had butterflies while she was doing it, but the pain is over in a few seconds. Just don't play around with it too much - when you clean it, just twist it gently and u can keep twisting it to help it set in - and keep your hair away from it cause when you move it when u bump your ear it hurts a little bit.  But I'm so glad i did it, it looks awesome. Now I'm finally going to get my nose and my belly button done :P

It's a needle through your face. Obviously you can feel it. No it's not the worst pain in the world it feels like an ear piercing.
You can't use a gun. It can't be autoclaved and you can recieve viruses such as HIV from them...So have fun if you go to the mall to do it.
By the way...Don't do it yourself. You people aren't trained...I went through that phase when I was 14. Nothing like a gangrenous infection to turn you off that.

Well, I got my nose pierced and its a pain to take care of, like right now, after a month, its still hurts and bleeds a lot. Well, that could just be my level of sensitivity, but, I definitely recommend that you DON'T take your piercing out (as I did) to play with it. Just clean it when your supposed to, and you'll be fine. As of getting it pierced, my aunt got hers done, and she said she wouldn't get hers done again cause it hurt so bad, but I would rather have it done over millions of times before ever going to the dentist again. :) So, really, its all based on your body.

Nose & belly button piercings don't hurt at all if you use a needle for the nose it's quick...I've had my nose pierced twice all they do is stick a hollow metal thing in your nose then push the need through & inside it then they take the metal pole out put a cork on the outside of the needle get the ring ready & stick it through as they pull the needle out I watched it both times...& don't be scared because that'll make you think it hurts more than it actually does.

its better to get it done with a needle, because a gun pushes the earring through the skin, while the needle pushes the skin away which is better because if you want to take it out because you don't like it, it will close up.. while if you had it done with a gun. there will be an indent of where it was pierced. and also, When you get it done with a needle, It puts the kind of earring your suppost to have in your nose in, While if you get it done with a gun its with a stud.. Which can be closed to tightly and not be able to get it out by yourself.

i just did my nose myself a couple days ago after seeing a friend do it to her boyfriend. He cried when she did it, but when i did it, i didn't even flinch...so i guess it just depends on your pain tolerance. I did mine with a sterilized needle and I'm using a stud made of surgical steel and every things going GREAT! just remember to keep it clean

I am thinking of getting my nose peirced. I was wondering (truthfully) how painful it is. I have my belly button done, my cartilige done, and I have a small tattoo on my back. My bellybutton didnt hurt as bad as my cartilige or my tattoo. So since I'm going to ask that it be done with a needle, I figured it would be about the same amount of pain.

Just to let everyone know, I had a friend who had her cartilege peirced with a gun and it completely shattered. She had to get reconstructive surgery to fix it. Even though a needle might hurt more and might not heal as fast, for long term and safety it is much better. Don't be ignorant and think of the short term easy way out. It will be a much longer and painful process later if something goes wrong with the gun.

Actually, it does matter on whether or not a gun is used as opposed to a needle.  With a gun, it is more likely that bacteria can get pushed into the hole.

I had my nose pierced about 4 months ago with a needle by a 'professional' The night after I had it pierced, I pulled it out in my sleep. I had it pierced again the day after and I accidentally pulled it out the day after when I scratched my nose.. I then had it pierced again the day after that on the other side but I had them put a ring through it. With fresh piercings, the best choice for jewelery is prolly surgical steel. Some golds can cause a gold allergy. Uhh.. I've had no problems with my nose since that last time and I normally wear a ring the shuts with the ball(I can't remember what it's called...)If you're getting your nose done, go to a professional piercer, not a doctor and get it done with a needle. It hurts a little when they put the needle through but after it's done, it doesn't hurt. Just... If you get it done with a stud, be careful that you don't pull it out accidentally. And if your nose swells up at all(which it might) the stud will fall out easier and it's REALLY REALLY hard to get it back in. Anyway. That's my story and advice... Yay.(Oh... and as for which side to get it done, get it done on whichever you think will look best!)

just to clear some things up, getting a piercing done with a needle is by far a better idea than getting anything pierced with a gun. for starters, guns are not as accurate, and they leave you with a bump on the back of your piercing due to cartilage build up in most cases. with a needle, the piercer has a better view of the hole they are about to put through your body, and the needle also allows for faster, and easier healing time. also, getting pierced with a needle is less stressful on your body than the effects of the the gun on your body are. one method of piercing doesn't hurt more than another, its mainly matter what you get pierced, and you own pain tollerance...
