Putting your nose stud in – a step-by-step guide

  1. Thoroughly wash your hands, as you do not want any bacteria touching the piercing that could cause infection
  2. Use a saline solution to make sure the area is clean
  3. Pick up your nose stud and carefully guide it to the piercing hole
  4. With care, push the end of the stud into the hole
  5. If inserting an L-shaped nose stud, angle the stud slightly to get the bent part through the piercing
  6. Gently lift up your nostril a bit to check that the nose stud is in properly
  7. If you can feel the stud on the inside of your nose, or it is uncomfortable, reposition it carefully

What are the easiest nose studs to take in and out?

L-Shaped Nose Stud: L-shaped nose studs have a straight post with a small bend at the end, creating an “L” shape. The straight portion goes through the piercing, while the bent end secures the stud in place. These studs can be relatively easy to insert and remove since they usually have a shorter length and a simple design. They are often used for new piercings.

Straight-End Nose Studs: Straight-End Nose Studs are arguably the easiest to insert and remove, as they do not have any bends, and therefore you only need to push or pull to insert or remove them.

Nose Screw Studs: Nose screw studs feature a twisted post that is ‘screwed’ or twisted into the piercing hole. The twisting action helps secure the stud in place. They take a little more time and precision to insert and remove compared to other types, however, once you get the hang of it, they can be quite easy to handle and are secure.
