    when did you change your nose piercing for the first time?

    Advertisements
    I bought a new nose ring, one thats clear with a gem cause it'll be less noticeable now that my job decided to crack down on nose rings. anyway i got it done about 2 months and 2 weeks ago, is this way to short to be changing it?

    and how the heck do i get it out? i tried for a little bit but got nervous. i cant get do it. it feels like the jewelry is an L. i dont think its one of the screw ones.

    Does it still hurt or do you have any irritation? If not you're good to change it at this point, just know that it will probably be pretty tender.

    If you have an L bar, they're really easy to get out. Wash your hands/your nose, try to clear out any boogers, and go on YouTube to find a video of someone taking it out. It's easy but hard to explain in words lol. That's what I did the first time I needed to take it out though.

    Also if you want to keep it pierced, I would wait to do this until you'll be able to go to a piercer just in case something goes awry, like if you can't put the new jewelry in. They close up really fast so you don't want to do it at night or something because it'll be closed by morning.

    I didn't change mine, until after its one year anniversary. I was too scared to do it for the longest time.

    I was around 2-3 months when I changed mine. It was still a bit tender but not too bad. The L isn't too hard to get out .. it just hurt a bit when going around the hump for me. I just kind of pushed mine out. Now I prefer the bones .. the straight ones that are just slightly bigger on the other end so it stays. They are a lot easier to get in and out than the L's for me. I have never been able to use a screw .. I tried putting one in for hours a few time .. ended up making my nose bleed and could never get it in. I have no idea how to get those screws in haha,

    I just haven't changed it. I think you're supposed to wait six to eight weeks. You should be fine, but I agree with January. Id go have them change it the first time.

    i get to the hump part and then it hurts a bit so i get nervous and push it back in. the one i wanna put in its a corkscew.

    do you think any piercer would put it in for me? the place i went to is pretty far to go to just to get my ring changed. theres closer places around

    Corkscrews are HARD. definitely go to a piercer. And yeah, any piercer will do it for you. I doubt they will charge but you should tip. I would also call first to make sure it's ok, but I can't imagine they would say no.
