My Nose Piercing Experience

By Theresa, from Monroeville.

 I decided at age 45 to get my nose pierced!

Since high school, I found it to be the most amazing thing! As a lot of wives, I was told “No Way!”, and so I never got it. But, through time and circumstances, I was single and it was kind of on my “bucket list”.

So, I was headed to a specific shop to get it, and ended up at another, because a person who was shopping in the same place-when I noticed her nose stud, told me about a place near the location we were at. I drove just 10 minutes to the shop, went in, and got a tattoo and a nose ring! I signed in, did the form and a lady said for me to have a seat in her chair.

Without warning, she marked the spot I wanted it, and she did the piercing. And – WOW – what pain!! I almost cried and twitched, and she told me to sit still and don’t move. I tried my best, and then she yells across the room for another employee to help her! I got a little panicked, because from the beginning all she told me was, “You have atiny, tiny nose!” When it was done, and the nose put into my nose, I was glad but in pain, of course.

So, I asked if that was it, and she said yes. I started to leave, and turned around to ask what to clean it with. She told me, “Just soap and water.” So, as you see, my experience was not an educated one. And none of the ways shown here, or the safety precautions in the piercing, or the aftercare henceforth, including a paper with the aftercare instructions were used here.

And, all these things lead me to your website, because I had to search for aftercare, safety, and types of nose rings. I could have called the studio back, but I figured the information would not be supplied since it wasn’t at the start of the procedure. Upon my departing the studio, I did have my nose piercing, but not a clue as to how to care for it, when to change it, or what type nose jewelry that should be used.
