A single nose stud on one nostril is the most popular choice, but not the only one. A double nose piercing is any combination of two nose piercings, whether they be one on each nostril, on the same side, or stacked on top of each other. This has become a popular trend in recent years, and the best part is we offer a double nose piercing service so you can get two done on the same day!
Any trauma to your piercing can cause the formation of piercing bumps, increased swelling, prolonged healing and more. Sterilear Piercing Spray aftercare is effective for aiding in the healing process of nose piercings, and can treat bumps.
The nose piercing process is a simple one, and one we love to conduct on our beautiful clientele. We followed Thea when she visited our wonderful Marion salon to receive her nose piercing, check out her process below:

Different types of nose jewellery include pigtail or curved studs, L-shape studs, labret flat back studs or hinged rings. We pierce noses with 20 gauge jewellery, but 18 gauge is also quite common if you prefer a thicker look. 20 gauge is the thinnest and most dainty nose jewellery. For females, the most popular nose jewellery is thin gold or surgical steel hoops, or bezel and claw set crystal nose studs. Most men prefer the look of surgical steel or black hinged rings in the nose.
If your jewellery falls out, ensure you replace it immediately to keep your piercing open. If your piercing is fresh (less than 2 – 4 months old), the hole can close up in a matter of minutes or even seconds. If you’ve had a nose piercing for less than a year, you can expect it to close up or the piercing to shrink significantly within a few hours or days. The inner nostril is lined with mucous membranes that seal up quickly once the jewellery has been removed even if you’ve had it for years. You should never force jewellery through a shrunk or closed piercing, call your local Essential Beauty salon instead for help!
