My ears had a bad reaction to piercings... do you think the same thing would happen to my nose?

Probably not, I think the reason my nose did that is because she basically had to re-pierce about 8 times in one sitting and was screwing around with the hole a lot trying to get the piercing in..

What happened with your ears though? Are you possibly allergic to certain metals? If that's the case, just get a plastic nose piercing - they are easier to pierce with, cheaper and usually safe for sensitive bodies.

I tried basically every metal out there.

Are the plastic ones cute at least? Haha

I don't think you can pierce with plastic. It isn't as sterile, and it won't clean as well. I'll ask my roomie, she's a tattoo artist and does piercings, but I'm pretty sure they have to use a metal.

As far as shows, once it's healed, you can get a clear plastic or glass [you can have glass in the beginning, I know that much] so you can't see it. It shouldn't be a problem.

^ That would be really interesting to find out, because most people I know got theirs pierced with plastic. Then again, it may not be generic plastic, probably something a little different.

I'll ask her when she gets home. Plastic holds bacteria unlike glass or metal. That's my understanding of it.

Mine didn't hurt that bad. Made my eyes water and my nose bleed a little bit but nothing terrible. I have no idea bout the glass, plastic metal stuff, but I do know that I prefer the L shaped studs because the straight ones fall out easy and the curved ones are harder to get in and out.

The plastic ones are the ones you see that have a jewel on the outside.

Yeah, plastic is a no-go. It holds bacteria and the piercing will heal into it. You can use glass or metal until it heals, then use plastic.

Yikes, that's quite scary considering the place I went not only suggested using the plastic but they're a very reputable place...
