Nasel – Nostril

Nasel – Nostril

The Nostril is pierced anywhere along the curve of the nostril, as this is where the cartilage is at its thinnest. The initial jewelry can be of 20g,18gauge. Nostril studs, labrets, or barbells need only be long enough to allow for initial swelling; but a Ball Closure Ring needs to be of a large enough diameter to just hang a little away from the bottom of the nostril, in case of swelling causing the Ball Closure Ring to ‘pull’ into the nostril. The jewelry length of the stud needs to be bent different from person to person. Healing Time: 12 – 16 weeks
