Nose Piercing Which Side So you’ve decided to get your nostril pierced.  Nose piercing is one of the popular types of piercing these days and a tiny little nose ring can look very attractive!

But when you get the nose piercing  which side will you go for? Right side or left side? Can’t decide? OK, I’ll give you some nose piercing information about what the pierced nostrils meant historically.

Although you can find many girls and guys these days having both their nostrils pierced and even having multiple piercings in one nostril, it hasn’t been always so. Hindu girls, for example, would wear the nose rings in one nostril only – the left.

Indian women often pierced their left nostril  the night before their wedding and inserted a nose stud in the piercing. Indian women would wear also nose rings and sometimes would attach them to the earring using a nice, decorative chain.

But why the left nostril?

Well, the reason can be found in the Ayurvedic medicine. It is said that the left nostril of a woman coresponds to the reproductive organs and having it pierced can be actually helpful. It allegedly may reduce the pain during childbirth and also have a positive effect on some medical conditions, for example, endomitriosis.

So which side should you go for?

I’d recommend the left nostril. But, of course, you may pierce the right one as well.

Whatever you decide, please visit a piercing professional to get your nose pierced. It’s more difficult than it seems. I’ve known people who have had bad infections and nerve damage (causing an eyelid twitch!) when they pierced at home.

You should certainly go to a piercing professional to avoid such situations!
