LEFT SIDE PIERCING left-side-nose-piercing

Often times, the left side of the nose is the most preferred side for piercing. According to Ayurveda, the left side of the women’s nose corresponds with their reproductive organs. When the nose is pierced, it helps in reducing the pain during childbirth and may have some positive effects on conditions like endometriosis.

RIGHT SIDE PIERCING right-side-nose-piercing

Some say, if you are a guy, you need to pierce your left nostril and girls pierce their right nostril. However, it is thought if the guy wears it in the right nostril he is a gay and girls wearing it on the left are lesbians according to western culture. But, do not take this too seriously, wear it where you want left or right. It is your priority and comfort that matters.

SEPTUM PIERCING septum-piercing

Apart from the traditional left or right side, the other area you can opt for is the septum. The septum is the area at the bottom of the nose that is hidden and can only be seen from the underside. The jewelry that can be used for this area are straight barbells that are about 14 gauge, circular barbells that are also of 14 gauge with a 3/8 inch diameter or 14 gauge septum retainers.

NOSE BRIDGE PIERCING nose-bridge-piercing

Piercing on the bridge of the nose is another wild and a rebellious way to express themselves, for the MTV crowd. Bridge is the area where the nose meets the forehead. While piercing the bridge, the nose ring passes through the skin only, not the cartilage. For bejeweling the bridge, one should opt for straight barbells that are 16 or 14 gauge in thickness.
