Hi ladies (and men),
I am hoping to get my nose pierced (nostril) as my xmas gift to myself. I've always wanted to have it done, and now that I'm at home with the boy I will have time for it to heal before having to take it out for work. I am interested in hearing your experieicnes with piercing. I am not at all worried about the pain. I am more curious about the aftercare, jewelry choices (I want a stud) and healing process.
How long was it red/swollen?
What if I get a cold?
Anyone have issues with infection?
I am very metal sensitive, would you recc stainless steel or 18k gold?
If you remove it in the future, how much does the hole close up, or does it look like a big blackhead (eww)?
