Body Jewelry, Your Most Frequently Asked Questions
If it is bothersome, consider taking out the metal ring and replacing it temporarily with a flexible retainer stud. It is also recommended that you remove and clean your nose ring during and after a cold to prevent bacteria and viral buildup.I’ve heard that if I get a facial piercing, half of my face could go numb. Is this true?You should NEVER experience numbness due to nerve damage because a piercing should not ever be that deep. If you go to licensed piercer, they will be trained and they will know how to pierce your skin, face and elsewhere, safely. Remember, however, that you will probably sign a liability waiver before you’re pierced. Don’t just skim it, read it to know all of the risks and dangers of getting a piercing.If I have a nose ring, will I still be able to blow my nose? What will happen if I get a cold?Like any other piercing, the nose ring will be tender and sore at first, but it should have no long term effect on blowing your nose. It will probably take a little while to get used to and it may be uncomfortable at first, but after awhile you’ll barely notice a difference. When you have a cold, you will likely blow your nose more often which could result in soreness and tenderness on the entire nose, not just around the piercing.
